Through the introduction of Mints, you can change the rate at which a Pokemon's stats increase as they level up. One thing to take note of however is that you do not change the nature itself, but rather the effect that the Pokemon's nature has on it. Therefore a Pokemon which has an Impish nature and receives a Modest Mint will still have Impish nature displayed in its stats, but its stat growth will be that of a Pokemon with a Modest nature.

Pokemon that mainly rely on physical attacks should ideally have a slowly growing Special Attack, while Special attackers should ideally have a slow growing Attack stat. The method of selecting the correct nature for a Pokemon is having one that highlights its strengths while simultaneously making its unused stat into a
