Rattata (コラッタ) is the 19th Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Normal type, and is known as the Mouse Pokémon.

Rattata can use one of two Abilities: Run Away, which allows it to run from any non-trainer battle, but it still cannot switch out if any moves/abilities prevent it from doing so, or Guts, an Ability that increases its Attack when it is crippled with a status (not counting confusion, infatuation) by 50%, and a Burn won't reduce its Attack as a result of this Ability. A third Ability is available to Rattata from the Dream World, the Hustle Ability. This Ability increases the Attack of its Physical Moves by 50%, but reduces its Accuracy by 20%.

Rattata gain the opportunity to evolve into Raticate starting at Level 20.

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