Rattata (Japanese: コラッタ Koratta) is a Normal-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Raticate starting at level 20.

It is the only possible starter Pokémon in Pokémon Rumble.

Biology

Rattata is a small, quadruped rodent Pokémon. Its most notable feature is its large teeth. Like most rodents, its teeth grow continuously throughout its life and must be worn down by gnawing. It has long whiskers and a long, slightly curled tail. Rattata has purple fur on its back, and cream fur on its stomach. Females have shorter whiskers and lighter fur color.

Rattata can live wherever it can find food, which it searches for most of the day. Thanks to its sharp fangs, it is able to eat nearly anything. Its hardiness lets it live in many environments, although it mainly lives on plains and savannas. Because it reproduces so quickly, a pair of Rattata can quickly colonize an area. When it is threatened, Rattata can deliver a powerful bite.

Trivia

  • In the Pokémon Red and Blue beta, Rattata was originally known as Rattatak.
  • Rattata is notorious for being associated with the F.E.A.R. strategy.
  • Rattata and its evolution share their species name with Pikachu, Raichu, Sandshrew, and Sandslash. They are all known as the Mouse Pokémon.
  • Rattata has gained notoriety among the fanbase due to Youngster Joey on Route 30, and his phone calls claiming his Rattata to be within the top percentage of the species.
  • Rattata is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 253.

Origin

Rattata is based on a rat. The shape and position of its ears might be derived from the dumbo rat.

Name origin

Rattata is likely a combination of rat and attack, evident from its prototype name, Rattatak.[1] Its name also sounds like the onomatopoeic word rat-a-tat, which can also be related to the onomatopoeic palindrome tattarrattat, meaning to knock on a door.

Koratta is a combination of 子 ko (child) and Ratta (Raticate's Japanese name), leaning toward the meaning "child Ratta." It may also be a combination of 小 ko (small) and rat.
