Kingambit was first made available to players in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Bisharp, the Dark/Steel Pokémon debuted in Generation V and the Unova area, has a new discovered evolution named Kingambit. Taking full use of Kingambit’s formidable abilities requires finding the correct nature for this monster. Which type is ideal for Kingambit, Pawniard, and Bisharp in their pre-evolutionary stages? Let’s check it out.
Optimal Habitat for Pawniard, Bisharp, and Kingambit
Let’s check out Kingambit’s raw numbers before we discuss which nature is better for Pawniard, Bisharp, and the final evolution, and that’s Kingambit.
- HP: 100
- Attack: 135
- Defense: 120
- SP Atk: 60
- SP. Def: 85
- Speed: 50
Kingambit’s fundamental stats make it clear that Attack has always been one of this Pokémon and its predecessors’ strong suits. Because of this, it is important for Pokémon players to have a nature that increases Attack stat.
Dark/Steel Pokemon like Pawniard, Bisharp, and Kingambit are vulnerable to attacks from Fighting and Fire types. Unlike the Sp. Atk. used by many Fire-type techniques, which are mostly physical, most Fighting-type moves are more likely to be Psychic. Naturals with low Defense or Special Defense should be avoided in order to maintain optimal defensive effectiveness. If you’re concerned about your character’s speed, you should pick a nature that doesn’t reduce it. Given that Kingambit’s Speed is already reduced in Scarlet & Violet, a further decrease is undesirable.
Pawniard, Bisharp, and Kingambit all benefit from having the Adamant nature. The Sp. Atk attribute drops while the Attack attribute increases when using an adamantine weapon. Due to its poor Sp. Atk, the former is not very useful for Kingambit. Pick Adamant if you want Kingambit’s Attack to really shine. You won’t lose any information about how this formidable beast is built by doing this.
