Raticate first appeared under the ownership of a {{tc|Gentleman}} aboard the [[S.S. Anne|St. Anne]], easily defeating a {{pkmn|Trainer}}'s {{p|Starmie}} in a {{pkmn|battle}}. Seeing how strong Raticate was, Ash challenged the Gentleman to a battle, using his {{AP|Butterfree}} against Raticate. Butterfree easily endured and dodged all of Raticate's attacks, and then {{status|paralysis|paralyzed}} it with {{m|Stun Spore}}. Before Ash could order the finishing move, however, the Gentleman called off the battle, saying that it was a draw, although Ash was close to winning.
Afterwards, theThe Gentleman came to tell Ash that he was so impressed with Butterfree that he wantedlater himoffered to [[trade]] itRaticate for his Raticate. Ash, although being impressed of Raticate's strength too, was uncertain of what to do, and asked {{an|Brock}} for adviceButterfree. Brock toldAlthough Ash to agree to trade, although given the fact that he was infatuatedat byfirst thedoubtful Gentleman'sdue beautifulto womanhis companionbond atwith the momentButterfree, he likelyeventually wasn't even fully paying attentionagreed to what they were talking about. Thus the trade was made, makingand Raticate Ash'sjoined newest Pokémon. Later Ash told {{an|Misty}} about how he was still uncertain if the Gentleman would take care of Butterfree the way he did, and was thinking if he even did the right thing by trading ithis awayparty.
Ash only used Raticate once, mistakenly calling it out when he wanted to use his Butterfree to help fightingfight againstoff thea group of {{tc|Team Rocket Grunt}}s that were on board, having momentarily forgotten the tradeship, had happened.
