Raticate are a bit more aggressive than Rattata, due to its bigger size. If attacked, it stands up on its hind legs, bares its fangs and shrieks in an intimidating manner at its enemy. They need something to gnaw on such as rocks or logs or their teeth may grow too much. They are willing to take on larger foes if provoked enough. Raticate searches wide areas for food, and the webbing on its hind legs enable it to cross rivers. As Raticate uses its whiskers to maintain balance, it will apparently slow down if they are cut off.
