Tinkaton, otherwise known as the Hammer Pokémon, is a Fairy/Steel type Pokémon introduced in Generation 9. It is from the evolution line of Tinkatink and the evolution of Tinkatuff. One factor to consider if you want to build Tinkaton into a competitive unit in your party is its Nature.
Nature influences the rate at which a stat increases with levels. You may change a Pokémon’s Nature using “Mints,” which are rare items that can raise and lower the value of a particular Pokémon’s stat.

Adamant and Jolly Nature for Tinkaton
To know which is the best Nature for Tinkatink’s Tinkaton evolution, you will need to take into account its stats and move set. Its unique Gigaton Hammer, a Physical Steel move, has an incredible 160 base power. However, it has a poor Special Attack of 70. The following is Tinkaton’s base stats spread:
- HP: 85
- Attack: 75
- Defense: 77
- Special Attack: 70
- Special Defense: 105
- Speed: 94
Based on its base stats spread and move set, the Natures that would be ideal for Tinkaton would be Jolly (increases Speed, decreases Special Attack) and Adamant (increases Attack, decreases Special Attack), with Adamant coming out on top by a small amount. Given that its Gigaton Hammer prioritizes physical attack, Careful is another excellent choice. This Nature can raise its Special Defense while simultaneously lowering its Special Attack.
