Rattata (Japanese: コラッタ Koratta) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. Its most notable feature is its large teeth. Like most rodents, their teeth grow continuously throughout its life, and must be constantly worn down by gnawing. It will bite anything when it attacks, though it will live peacefully side by side with Pidgey.


Rattata is mouse-like, with large incisors and a whisker on both sides. Female Rattata have shorter whiskers than the males. The fur is purple, with a white or cream colored underside. Rattata have red eyes, with no obvious pupils. The tail is long, and curled slightly at the tip. Rattata have three-toed paws, which are the same color as its underbelly.

Special abilities

Rattata's teeth grow very quickly and they can survive almost anywhere. They also utilize their teeth so they can use attacks such as Super Fang and Bite.

Rattata is based on a rat. Rattata's name includes the words rat and possibly attack, considering its original name was going to be Rattatak. Koratta, the Japanese name, comes from rat and the prefix ko, meaning small.



  • Rattata originally had a k at the end of its name.
    • If it were to have the k, its name would be Rattatak, and would have sounded like "Rat Attack"
  • Rattata is the first pure Normal-type in the National Pokédex order.
  • Rattata, Pikachu, Raichu, Sandshrew and Sandslash are all known as the mouse pokémon.
    • Despite its classification, Rattata appears to be based off a rat, rather than a mouse.
  • Every Generation has a two-stage, Normal-type Pokémon to be found early in the game. Rattata is the one from the First Generation.
  • A Rattata has the ability to use the F.E.A.R tactic. A plan that can have a very low level Rattata beat any Pokémon. The Rattata holds a focus sash and has to know Endeavor and Quick Attack. The Rattata is attacked and would faint unless holding the focus sash which holds it to one HP. The Rattata then uses endeavor, making the Pokémon the move hit go down to one HP. The Rattata then uses quick attack and unless the other Pokémon uses quick attack the Rattata will have knocked out the other Pokémon.
  • in pokemon yellow it was yellow
