Similar to Pokemon Sword and Shield, you can still change a Pokemon’s Nature. Doing so can change a Pokemon’s stats and help you optimize your party. However, the process for obtaining mints is a little different than before. So, here’s how to get Nature Mints in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

How to get Nature Mints in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

The only way to get Nature Mints in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl is by purchasing them in the Battle Park shop for 50 BP per Mint. Obtaining and using the Mints is how you change a Pokemon’s Nature, influencing its stats like Sp. Atk, Attack, Sp. Def, Defense, Speed, etc.

That said, you can only obtain these items in the post-game part of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. While the mints are pretty expensive in terms of Battle Points, it can be well worth the investment. You can check a Pokemon’s current nature by checking its Summary tab.
