Red
Blue

Yellow Will chew on anything with its fangs. If you see one, it is certain that 40 more live in the area.
Gold It eats anything. Wherever food is available, it will settle down and produce offspring continuously.
Silver Living wherever there is food available, it ceaselessly scavenges for edibles the entire day.
Crystal This POKéMON's impressive vitality allows it to live anywhere. It also multiplies very quickly.
Ruby
Sapphire
RATTATA is cautious in the extreme. Even while it is asleep, it constantly listens by moving its ears around. It is not picky about where it lives - it will make its nest anywhere.
FireRed Its fangs are long and very sharp. They grow continuously, so it gnaws on hard things to whittle them down.
LeafGreen Bites anything when it attacks. Small and very quick, it is a common sight in many places.
Emerald A RATTATA is cautious in the extreme. Even while it is asleep, it constantly moves its ears and listens for danger. It will make its nest anywhere.

Omega Ruby
Alpha Sapphire
Rattata is cautious in the extreme. Even while it is asleep, it constantly listens by moving its ears around. It is not picky about where it lives—it will make its nest anywhere.
Sun Its incisors continue growing until its death. If its Trainer doesn’t offer it a file to gnaw on, it will gnaw on door frames, table legs, and so on.
Moon With their strong capacity for survival, they can live in dirty places without concern. Left unchecked, their numbers multiply rapidly.
Ultra Sun Its incisors grow continuously throughout its life. If its incisors get too long, this Pokémon becomes unable to eat, and it starves to death.
Ultra Moon This Pokémon is common but hazardous. Its sharp incisors can easily cut right through hard wood.

Alolan Rattata

Sun With its incisors, it gnaws through doors and infiltrates people’s homes. Then, with a twitch of its whiskers, it steals whatever food it finds.
Moon When the sun goes down, it becomes active. It runs around town on a chase for good food for the boss of its nest—Raticate.
Ultra Sun It shows no interest in anything that isn’t fresh. If you take it shopping with you, it will help you pick out ingredients.
Ultra Moon Night after night, they sneak into people’s homes seeking food. A massive outbreak of them has become an issue of public concern.
