Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Pokemon have a variety of stat modifiers known as Natures. Each nature changes a Pokemon's stat progression, and finding the perfect nature for a partner Pokemon is essential for those looking to build the strongest team. Here we focus on natures to help grow the best normal/flying hybrid with the Starly evolution line.
We've listed the best Natures for Starly, Staravia, and Staraptor below:

- Jolly (+Speed, -Special Attack)
- Naive (+Speed, -Special Defense)
- Rogue (+Attack, -Special Defense)
Starly, Staravia, and Staraptor are all incredibly fast Pokémon. They're excellent at bombarding your opponents, and their balance of attack and speed makes them extremely viable physical attackers. Since Starly, Staravia, and Staraptor are designed for physical attacks and have a very high base speed stat, many players often opt for an unyielding nature to further boost the potency of physical attacks.
We recommend grabbing an Adamant Starly, Staravia, or Staraptor during your playthrough, as that nature is devastating against enemy Pokémon. Choosing a Nature that improves Speed is also a reasonable choice, as long as it is not Timid. Timid Nature lowers attack power, the stat these three Pokemon need the most.
