Trivia

Rattata's name originally had a "K" at the end, but it was dropped.

Origin

It appears to be based on a rat.

Name origin

Rattata's name obviously incorporates rat into it, but the etymology of tata is not as clear. Rat-a-tat is the sound of knocking on wood or the sound a Tommy gun makes. It could also be a combination of rat and attack. Koratta is derived from the prefix 小 ko, small, and rat.
