Raticate

Red
Blue
It uses its whiskers to maintain its balance. It apparently slows down if they are cut off.
Yellow Its hind feet are webbed. They act as flippers, so it can swim in rivers and hunt for prey.
Gold Gnaws on anything with its tough fangs. It can even topple concrete buildings by gnawing on them.
Silver Its whiskers help it to maintain balance. Its fangs never stop growing, so it gnaws to pare them down.
Crystal The webs on its hind legs enable it to cross rivers. It searches wide areas for food.
Ruby
Sapphire
RATICATE’s sturdy fangs grow steadily. To keep them ground down, it gnaws on rocks and logs. It may even chew on the walls of houses.

Ultra Sun People say that it fled from its enemies by using its small webbed hind feet to swim from island to island in Alola.
Ultra Moon Its whiskers are essential for maintaining its balance. No matter how friendly you are, it will get angry and bite you if you touch its whiskers.

Alolan Raticate

Sun It forms a group of Rattata, which it assumes command of. Each group has its own territory, and disputes over food happen often.
Moon This gourmet Pokémon is particular about the taste and freshness of its food. Restaurants where Raticate live have a good reputation.
Ultra Sun It has an incredibly greedy personality. Its nest is filled with so much food gathered by Rattata at its direction, it can’t possibly eat it all.
Ultra Moon It commands a nest of Rattata. Different nests don’t get along, whipping up severe fights over feeding grounds.
Let's Go Pikachu
Let's Go Eevee
It makes its Rattata underlings gather food for it, dining solely on the most nutritious and delicious fare.
