Raticate (Japanese: ラッタ Ratta) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. Its teeth are strong enough to be able to eat through cinderblock walls.

Appearance

Compared to Rattata, Raticate is far more of a predator, and the majority of its features are adapted for this purpose. Its most notable feature are its large teeth; like most rodents, Raticate's teeth grow continuously throughout its life, and must be constantly worn down by gnawing. It is also known that Raticate's fangs are tough enough to break concrete. It has long whiskers and a long tail. Raticate looks like a rat, just like Rattata. Raticate tends to stand on its hind legs, as opposed to its pre-evolution.

Special abilities

Raticate's webbed feet allow it to swim well when it hunts.

In the anime

Cassidy's Raticate

Evolution

Raticate is the evolved form of Rattata as of level 20.

Origins

It seems to be based on the nutria, or coypu. Whilst Raticate's name comes from rat and eradicate.

Trivia

  • In the Yellow Pokédex, it mentions that Raticate swims for prey, however, it does not learn Surf.
  • There once was an overlook in the anime where Rattata was standing next to Raticate. Raticate was actually as small as Rattata, which shouldn't normally happen.
  • There is a popular theory that claims that in the original Japanese Red/Green GB games, the Raticate that your Rival used in battles before Lavender Town died, due to your Rival's lines and the fact that his Raticate doesn't make any other appearance over the course of game.
