Raticate (ラッタ) is the 20th Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Normal Type, and is known as the Mouse Pokémon.

Raticate can use one of two Abilities: Run Away, which allows it to run from any non-trainer battle regardless of either Pokémon's Speed, but it won't be able to switch out if any moves/abilities prevent fleeing, or Guts which increases its Attack by 50% if it becomes afflicted with a major Status Condition. A third Ability is available to Raticate from the Dream World, the Hustle Ability. This Ability increases the power of its Physical Attacks by 50%, but its Accuracy falls to 80%.

Rattata can evolve into Raticate Level 20.

Raticate is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Raticate One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

Raticate has made multiple appearances throughout the series, most notably when Ash traded his Butterfree for another trainer's Raticate in the episode Battle Aboard the St. Anne, only to go back on the trade because he missed his Butterfree. Butch and Cassidy have also used a Raticate from time to time in their foiled schemes.

[edit] Movies

Another trainer used a Raticate in the first film, Mewtwo Strikes Back. Its other appearances were in the wild for the second Pikachu Short Pikachu's Rescue Adventure and its other two film appearances, The Power of One and Destiny Deoxys.

[edit] Manga

Yellow's Rattata would evolve into a Raticate in Chapter 53. At the time this startled Yellow, causing her to cry, but she would get over it. Nicknamed "Ratty" back when he was a Rattata, this Raticate appears in Chapters 55-57, 59, 60, 81, 82, 87, 89, 90, 141, 173, 290, 292, 293 & 295.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Raticate finds itself in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. Its Defenses and Type won't do it any favors, but what sets it apart from other Normal-Type Pokémon is access to Sucker Punch. Combining that with its Speed make it a solid choice for getting a Revenge KO or two.

The biggest problem for Raticate is Steel-Type and Rock-Type Pokémon, along with faster Pokémon that can survive a Sucker Punch will work well. Hard-hitting Pokémon that survive Raticate's attacks have a good chance of defeating it as well.
