She's like a sea urchin. Tough and prickly on the outside, but delicate and easily wounded if hit the wrong way. Please handle gently.
I went with Quirky because Im kinda a weirdo irl. I dress like an adorable hobo, I walk into peoples houses without even announcing Im coming or show up in the middle of the night, I tend to SCREAM at random times, et cetera. I have a reputation as the Weird Friend or that One Quirky Family Member, always running off doing random, inexplicable shit at weird hours of the day. Its just who i am. ^w^ Hence, quirky!

This Pokémon is said to be scared of its own shadow. It can often be found sitting in the rain.
Impish because I'm a pretty playful person and I like pranks. My mother in law also chose "impish" to describe me when presented with a list of Pokemon natures (long story), so yepyep.

A timid Pokémon typically found in groups. The only thing that motivates her more than companionship is food.
I took two quizzes and they both gave me Calm, so I went with it. I took the PMD 2 quiz after reading another answer that mentioned it and the description fits me pretty well too.

I tend to be eccentric, off the wall, come at things oddly, and not generally interested or focused on what others are, even if we're enjoying the same thing. So definitely quirky

I picked lonely as it's the overwhelming feeling that prevails when depression hits me. Isolation, all that unhealthy nonsense. Trying to stave off such tendancies. Maybe one day I'll change it to careful or lax.

Though if there was a tired nature, I'd be that.

Calm? I rarely react to things that normally incite panic, surprise, excitement, etc in others these days. That's about it as far as reasoning goes.

I'm pretty hasty, and I often rush into new projects - like I'm not done my Sun nuzlocke but already I want to start a comic run! I like to post my updates as soon as possible, and I just feel like I lose momentum if I slow down.

I've had plenty of people in irl tell me that I'm weird but in the good way. So ya quirky fits. I enjoy being that way tbh.

This creature tends to lurk in the shadows, only coming out when it feels necessary. Despite this it seems to enjoy playing around with other pokémon.
Tbh I actually had my nature as Rash up til some time ago, because I've done more than my fair share of dumbassery.

Recently I picked up the PMD remake demo and got "hardy", I admit I cried while reading the description when I realized "Shit this game is right"... Gonna get real for a minute; I haven't had a very easy or pleasant life and recently it's gotten worse than I could have imagined, but it got me thinking I made it through the rest of my life and if I keep it up maybe I'll make it through this too... Aside from that I'm more stubborn than a couple of tectonic plates trying to move back into Pangea shape and have a level of patience that could probably rival Buddha! If "dense" were a nature it'd be the only other part of my personality that doesn't 180 lol!

I went with careful because I'm, admittedly, very very risk averse. So, natural fit right there, I'd say.

often forgets that selfdestruct exists
"hardy" usually applies to people who are less likely to suffer from stressful environments, traumatic events, and such - which definitely would not describe me

but I'm going with my own definition of "hardy", which is summed up by the fact that I'm still myself after all the shit I went through

I chose careful because I'm a very, very cautious person who doesn't like to take risks, I'm pretty hesitant and overthink my options before I make a decision, so careful seemed to fit the best.

I found when I was a kid, my intelligence was the thing I was consistently praised for. Not athleticism, or toughness, or bravery, or anything like that - intellect. So I overvalue intelligence and have attempted to groom it in myself. So... cleverness it was.

This pokemon is prone isolating themselves. They can usually be found lurking in the dark, drawing, writing, or avoiding sleep.
I am a quiet person, at least generally. I tend to avoid talking too much, but I can type up a storm, and laugh pretty loud. It just depends on who I'm talking to. But, Sassy, Quirky, and Lonely were all considered too, for various reasons.

I take a while to warm up to people & actually come out of my shell, which is also affected by my social anxiety disorder (although its been helped by various resources, i.e. medication, therapy).
Quirky would most likely fit how I am with people I know & trust.

I'm just generally a pretty calm person. I try to keep everything chill and keep a rein on my temper, which I think probably comes from working in a job that involves managing people/being one of the older members in a few of my Discord servers.
