Rattata-Alola @ Life Orb
Ability: Hustle
Level: 5
EVs: 228 Atk / 76 SpD / 180 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Sucker Punch
- Facade
- U-turn
- Zen Headbutt

It doesn't have the best of Attack stats, so it really needs Hustle and a Life Orb in order to punch holes in things. Sucker Punch is STAB priority. It works better than Crunch, as it has just 10 BP less and gives Rattata a means of employing priority. Facade is because it doesn't get many other Normal moves, and it works well even when statused. U-turn lets you pivot and keep momentum. Zen Headbutt nails Fighting types that hit Rattata 4x effectively.

It's not the best Pokemon, you should use something else if you can.

Rattata-Alola @ Life Orb
Ability: Hustle
Level: 5
EVs: 228 Atk / 180 Spe / 74 SpD
Jolly Nature

  • Crunch
  • Double Edge / Return /Facade
  • U-Turn
  • Quick Attack / Sucker Punch

This is a sweeper set. Crunch and Double Edge is STAB, however Return can be used if you don't want recoil. Facade can also be used if you want an option while statused. U-Turn is to keep momentum and the last move is priority. Hustle and Life Orb makes Rattata a very formidable force.
