Can you check a wild pokemon's nature before catching it??

Sorry if the question is a bit noobish, but I'd like to know.. It's a bit annoying to have to catch say 6 Sandiles to find one with a good nature...

Thanks in advance for any help!

Nope. You have to catch it first.

You can make it easier by catching a Munna or Elgyem with Synchronize that has a desirable nature so that the pokemon you want to catch as a 50% chance of having the same nature as Munna/Elgyem

Just catch a bunch of dittos with different natures and give them everstones so you can breed any nature onto any pokemon whenever you want.

But you CAN check it's ability by using entrainment on them :p
If ignorance is a bliss I know alot of happy people

Entrainment tells you the ability, not the nature
