She tries her best, but doesn't succeed. She gets what she wants but not what she needs.
Credit to @Rubombee who posted a similar question regarding typing, but I want to hear your reasoning for whatever nature you’ve chosen for your profile on the forums!

For me, I just consider myself a careful person in the sense that I’m hesitant and guarded. I suppose careful can also mean “full of care” as well, and I’d definitely consider myself a pretty emotional person.

How about you?

Honestly, because I'm kinda lazy and I think Lax fits that best.

Also, why are you crediting me? I wasn't the one that started that thread, it was @Rubombee, I was just the person who responded before you.

Thanks for crediting the right person.

Autistic writer who starts more things than she finishes. Hyper asexual Twitch Plays Pokemon lorewriter. Rather be a happy shill than an angry critic.
I'm Quirky because I'm quirky. I mean, I write weird Twitch Plays Pokemon fanfiction. If anything makes someone quirky, it's that.

Timid because I'm a timid and anxious person. It's pretty much self explanatory! Although statwise I'm not sure I fit +speed -attack...

As a kid, the PMD 2 personality test always told me I was rash. Cue Young Me declaring angrily, "I'm not a rash!" and looking up the answers to "game the system."

I'm a careful person, very rarely wanting to rush into things and often thinking/worrying about consequences. (Although if we were involving flavor preferences, I'd definitely be Timid.)

it was banished for its violence. it silently gazes upon the old world from the distortion world
adamant bc I'm fiercely proud and opinionated and don't make a habit of backing down. also committed to whatever I pick up, it's brittle strength but it's a strength nonetheless. lonely probably fits too tbh (+atk 4lyfe)

Despite being a Grass-type, Casual is a flaming lesbian. Fire and Grass don't usually mix, but somehow it works out here.
I'm on the autism spectrum, which gives me a few traits that aren't quite what would be expected of a neurotypical person. My mannerisms and fixations made the choice of Quirky easy.

This Pokemon is a master of having too many projects at the same time. Also, Pikablu.
I chose Quiet because... well, I'm quiet in real life. Don't talk a lot, that's about it. Pretty self-explanatory.

Part Cyndaquil, part Mudkip, entirely tired.
I used to have it as Lonely, which I think is pretty self-explanatory. Now, though, I prefer to think of myself as Hardy because life keeps throwing difficult stuff at me but I always fight through it and keep going. (Well, mentally hardy, that is. My body is hella fragile...)

When I’m not on the clock in some fashion I’m pretty dang laid back. Hence, lax.

This friendly ghost lurks around sites of interest and tries to say hi. They may project a little too much onto their writing.

Tries to find the wonder in everything. Hopes to be more kind as each day passes.
I had my nature as Quirky until recently – I'm a pretty eccentric person in real life (read: I'm weird). I don't blend in at all, haha.
I guess I could also be Timid or Bashful? I'm anxious about a lot of things IRL, and I'm shy to post online.

But, I'll stick with Lonely for now. It took me a while to join any online communities, and I feel slightly out of place, even though I love the communities I'm in now. Also, a lot of the things that got me into these interests years ago have changed or ended before I got here, and it feels like I'm too late.

Haha, that got almost too real. Anyhow, I'm Lonely because I'm lonely, I guess. 🙃

Wild Ordo will often hide alone; however, caught specimen are loyal until their death.
I used to be Quiet but I got over it (there's Backstory Mess behind that). Now Modest fits better, in the sense that I'll do all the work and absolutely want none of the credit. Seriously, don't do it.

This Pokémon is currently kerfuffled by this feature. Kerfuffled isn't a word.
Honestly, I picked Adamant as my nature when I played White so long ago. I never knew what it meant.

Now that I do know what it means, I know it's definitely not my nature. But I still picked it out of some pointless nostalgia.

This Skarmory/Charizard fusion is very rare and tends to be quiet and shy until befriended. Also a huge fan of Smash Bros. and writing.
I'm a very quiet person-especially IRL-hence my Quiet nature. (Admittedly I'm not as quiet online, but I still think it fits :v: )

Naive
Pokémon Type

Pokédex Entry
This Pokemon is infamously irritable, but it comes down from its rage quickly. It is quite loyal to kind, patient Trainers.
PMD 2 gave me a Naive nautre. (Chimchar!) I feel it's the most accurate nature. My personality can flip-flop between forward and shy, calm and furious, quirky and reserved. But through it all, I am very naive. I don't really pick up on a lot of what should be common knowledge, and I generally expect the best of people.
I feel like the PMD 2 text says it well enough.
You seem to be... the naive type! You're so open and innocent! What a strong sense of curiosity you have! And you state your opinions purely, sharing exactly what you think. You also have an artistic spirit that isn't restrained by social conventions! You startle people with your spontaneity and vision. But when you overdo it, other people can have a hard time keeping up with you... Have you noticed people looking at you oddly? As if for no apparent reason?
It's a bit of a flattering description, but not too inaccurate.

Takes themselves a bit too seriously, but is otherwise friendly. It is most active in the middle of the night.
People have been telling me that I take myself "too seriously" since as far back as I can remember. They're not wrong.
