Origins[edit | edit source]

Rattata is based off of a rat. Rattata's name incorporates 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.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In the anime episode Pokémon - I Choose You!, Rattata's name was pronounced RAT-tat-ta. However, the Official Pokémon Handbook listed its pronunciation as "ruh-TA-tah" and, more recently, Pokédex 3D Pro's narrator pronounced it as ruh-TA-tuh.
  • Rattata originally had a k at the end of its name.[citation needed]
    • If it were to have the k, its name would be Rattatak, and sound 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.
  • Every Generation has a rodent-like Pokemon to be found early in the game and that is a normal-type Pokemon. Rattata is the one from the First Generation.
  • Rattata is the most well-known user of the F.E.A.R tactic—a strategy that aims to allow an extremely low-level Pokémon to beat a foe of any level. The Rattata holds a focus sash and has to know Endeavor and Quick Attack. The Rattata is attacked and would be killed 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.
