Pokémon Natures Guide

There are a wide variety of natures that the Pokémon you catch can have. These are the personalities they hold and determine their base stats. Natures include Bashful, Docile, Hardy, Quirky, Serious, Gentle, Hasty, Lax, Mild, Brave, Quiet, Relaxed, Sassy, Rash, Lonely, Naughty, or Naïve.

But in this guide, I will cover Adamant, Modest, Jolly, Timid, Impish, Bold, Careful, and Calm. These are my opinions and are based on my experiences. Everyone is free to level up their Pokémon in anyway they see fit. Take my natures guide to point you in the right direction. From there, have fun!

ADAMANT – Physical Attacker

If you are looking for a Pokémon to hit hard with its physical attacks, then Adamant may be the nature for you. Find a partner that packs a punch and level them up until you have a one hit wonder.

Adamant natures have high attack but are low in special attack. This will give you a chance to master some strong physical moves.

MODEST – Special Attacker

Looking for a Pokémon with powerful special moves? Find a Modest natured partner and train them to perfect the moves unique to their style.

Modest natures have a high attack but a low physical attack. Overall, your specialized Pokémon will be super effective in causing status damage.


There are going to be specific pokemon that will start with a base stat of high speed. But you can greater your chances of a higher speed by finding pokemon with Jolly or Timid natures.

Jolly natures are high in speed but low in special attack. On the other hand, Timid natures are high in speed but low in attack. If speed is what you are looking for and don’t mind training your Pokémon in order to level up those attack stats, one of these natures could be for you.

IMPISH & BOLD – Physical Defense

Pokémon battles are not just about who can hit the hardest. Sometimes you need to take a hit – and if your warriors are not equipped with strong defense stats, this can be a KO; causing you to revive and heal over and over again just to win a single battle.

Impish natures are low in special attack but make up for it in their defense. Bold are low in their attack but make for up in their defense. Either of these natures can be a good start in leveling up a Pokémon that may not hit hard but can take a hard hit.

CAREFUL & CALM – Special Defense

Pokémon differentiate between physical and special attacks – so you will want a Pokémon that has strong special defense as well.

Careful natures are low in special attack but are high in special defense. Calm natures are low in their attack but high in special defense. This Pokémon will be key in going up against a hard hitting Pokémon with mastered special moves.


Pokémon Type Strengths and Weakness Guide

Picking up Pokémon Legends: Arceus has been the best decision of 2022. Maybe that’s a little dramatic. But I’ve never been so enveloped by a Pokémon game. One of my own weaknesses is understanding and remembering which type of moves should take on other types. So I decided to make my own guide. Use this as you need when leveling up your Pokémon, battling your way through Hisui, and catching them all.

4 Exciting Announcements from 2022 Nintendo Lineup

February 9, 2022, Nintendo dropped some exciting titles and DLCs to look forward to this year. I did not include them all. Click here to watch the full direct. Here are the ones that I am most excited to play in the following months.

Mario Strikers Battle League

Mario Strikers™: Battle League for Nintendo Switch - Nintendo Game Details

This franchise has been around since 2005; but this is the first time I have heard of it. Many young Mario fans are going to be exposed to this action packed sports game.

Mario and his friends use different gear to enhance their speed, strength, and pass accuracy on the field. Use items like bombs to make gameplay explosive! Tackle the other team and steal the ball! Create a hyper strike and shoot a goal to earn double points!

Mario Strikers supports up to 8 players on a single Switch. Nintendo Online members can join games worldwide and even join clubs to become the best Strikers there are.

Mario Strikers Battle League is available June 10, 2022. Preorders available now. Watch the trailer below.

Splatoon 3 Salmon Run Next Wave

The Salmonids Are Bigger and Badder in 'Splatoon 3: Salmon Run Next Wave' -  Cinelinx | Movies. Games. Geek Culture.

Nintendo released a trailer of Splatoon 3 Salmon Run Next Wave which displays the multiplayer gameplay. In the apocalypse looking world, the squidlings must battle enemies such as Fish Stick and Flipper Flopper. Hopefully there are more Splatoon updates soon.

Splatoon 3 Salmon Run Next Wave comes summer 2022. Watch the trailer below.

Nintendo Switch Sports

Nintendo Switch™ Sports for Nintendo Switch - Nintendo Game Details

I spent a good deal of my childhood playing memorable sports in my living room, flinging the Wii-Mote in all directions. Wii Sports gave us great memories, great music, and hilarious videos. And who could forget throwing the bowling ball behind you and all the Miis freaking out!?

Let’s hope Nintendo Switch Sports will be new and fresh while sustaining the nostalgic feeling of starting your own family bowling team. The base game includes the fan favorites of tennis, bowling, and chambara (swordplay) with the addition of soccer, volleyball, and badminton. Later updates will include a kicking action in soccer (with leg strap included with physical game) and the added sport of golf.

February 18-20, Nintendo Online members can take part in the online play test. See details below or visit the web page here.

Nintendo Switch Sports will be available April 29, 2022. Watch the trailer below.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass

Paid DLC for Mario Kart 8: Deluxe featuring returning courses revealed in  Nintendo Direct - Dot Esports

We didn’t get the Mario Kart announcement that was speculated by many. But I for one am excited to be getting anything Mario Kart related. The paid DLC will include a total of 48 remastered courses from across Mario Kart history. The $24.99 USD pass includes 6 waves of 8 additional courses through the end of 2023. These courses will be available to play locally and online.

The first wave releases March 18, 2022. Preorders available now. Watch the trailer below.

Are You Prepared for LEGO Skywalker Saga?!

In a galaxy far, far away – also known as pre-pandemic – there was a game we were all psyched to get our hands on. LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga! But 2020 and 2021 found us saddened by many inconveniences, including the delay of this extremely anticipated LEGO game.

Come April 5, 2022 – it’ll be HERE!


I normally order my games digitally; it’s fast and you don’t have a cartage to keep up with.

BUT before you preorder your game, consider buying the physical deluxe edition. Here’s why:

8 LEGO Sets I’m Buying New Years Day 2022

With a brand new year comes brand new LEGO. I picked the 8 sets I am most excited to get my hands on. This is just my opinion – some sets you like might not be on here and some you don’t like might be on here. But we can both agree that LEGO has a special place in our hearts, and wallets.

#8: 40540 Lion Dance Guy – $9.99 USD


I’m obsessed with the Brickheaz theme. The head design is so unique that I can’t pass on this cute little guy.

#7: 31129 Majestic Tiger – $49.99 USD


Tiger being my favorite animal, this is a must buy. The design is remarkable looking, especially the tail. Being a 3-in-1, it can also be made into a red panda or koi fish.

#6: 40539 Ahsoka Tano – $9.99 USD


I have recenetly gotten more into Star Wars and this cute Ahsoka will make a great addition to my collection.

#5: 75322 Lego Star Wars Hoth AT-ST – $49.99 USD


Again, Star Wars sets have become more of an interest to me. This is a reasonably priced set and a good size. I can’t wait to build this one.

#4: 71397 Luigi’s Mansion Lab and Poltergust Expansion Set – $29.99 USD


There are two highlights to this set that make it a must buy for me. Number one: Dr. E Gad is SO CUTE! Number Two: The poltergust. From what I have read, it actually makes the vacuum noise.

#3: 40518 High-Speed Train – $19.99 USD


I was able to collect set 60197 Passenger Train and I love it. Though this train is much smaller, it is still a fabulous looking train that could fit into a small city. And the price makes it even more irrisistable.

#2: 76205 Gargantos Showdown – $29.99 USD


I might just be another extreme Marvel fan ready for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (yes, I am) – but this set comes next on my list becuase of a minifigure: America Chavez. This is the first time we are getting the MCU Ms. Marvel. She will undoubtingly be present in future sets due to being in the next Doctor Strange film and her own series on Disney+.

#1: 10297 Boutique Hotel – $199.99 USD


I recently decided that with the new year, I’d like to start investing into the modular buildings. What a great time too becuase a new one launches January 1st. The Boutique Hotel is celebrating 15 years of modular buildings. I have always been facinated by hotels and I’m excited to build this.

Have a wonderful New Year, may 2022 bring us HEALTH, HAPPINESS, and LEGO.

ACNH Finally Getting Brewster?!

Did Nintendo really make us wait almost a full 2 years before giving us what we have wanted this whole time?


Are we still going to enjoy it like no time has passed?

Also yes.

Since its perfect release date in March of 2020, Animal Crossing New Horizon players have been asking for the return of the infamous coffee barista.

Brewster first appeared in 2005 on the Nintendo DS’ Animal Crossing: Wild World. With his popularity, and absence from New Horizons, players found their own ways of adding the Roost to their island. From builds inside and out, here are some of my favorites.

September 23rd, Nintendo announced that the Roost will be added to the Museum come November. While that’s still a couple months away, it makes sense to introduce the cozy environment during a cozy season.

Nintendo will be airing an updated direct for this announcement in October. I’m sure they will go over all of what can do and who we will see at the Roost.
