Alolan Raticate has been revealed as the latest regional variant to appear in Nintendo 3DS exclusives Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.
The Mouse Pokémon is now Dark and Normal-type, and far chubbier than the design that we are used to seeing. This increased weight is thanks in part to the urban areas in which they dwell, where their diet has become higher in calories.
Category: Mouse Pokémon
Weight: 56.2 lbs.
Because urban areas are their main habitat, their diet is higher in calories than ordinary Raticate. As a result, they have become hefty.
Alolan Raticate prefers to eat only fresh fruits and high-class ingredients. There are rumors that a certain top-notch restaurant takes advantage of Alolan Raticate’s taste buds by bringing it along when choosing ingredients to buy, and having it taste test new dishes.
Alolan Raticate continually stockpile huge amounts of food in their nests. They mostly prefer to send out Alolan Rattata to gather food while they themselves stay home in their nests and just eat.
Alolan Raticate is the Totem Pokémon of the trial that takes place in Verdant Cavern on Melemele Island in Pokémon Moon.* It summons Rattata to help it confront those who take on the trial.
*Gumshoos appears as the Totem Pokémon in Verdant Cavern in Pokémon Sun.
Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will release exclusively for Nintendo 3DS in North America, Australia and New Zealand on November 18th, and in Europe on November 23rd.
