Raticate changes

Pokédex entries

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.
FireRed Its rear feet have three toes each. They are webbed, enabling it to swim across rivers.
LeafGreen It uses its whiskers to maintain its balance. It apparently slows down if they are cut off.
Emerald A 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.
Diamond
Pearl
Platinum
It whittles its constantly growing fangs by gnawing on hard things. It can chew apart cinder walls.
HeartGold Gnaws on anything with its tough fangs. It can even topple concrete buildings by gnawing on them.
SoulSilver Its whiskers help it to maintain balance. Its fangs never stop growing, so it gnaws to pare them down.
Black
White

Black 2
White 2
With its long fangs, this surprisingly violent Pokémon can gnaw away even thick concrete with ease.
X It whittles its constantly growing fangs by gnawing on hard things. It can chew apart cinder walls.
Y The webs on its hind legs enable it to cross rivers. It searches wide areas for food.
Omega Ruby
Alpha 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.
Sun Its hind feet are webbed, so it’s a strong swimmer. It can cross rivers and sometimes even oceans.
Moon Its disposition is far more violent than its looks would suggest. Don’t let your hand get too close to its face, as it could bite your hand clean off.
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.
