History
Afterwards, the Gentleman came to tell Ash that he was so impressed with Butterfree that he wanted him to [[trade]] it for his Raticate. Ash, although being impressed of Raticate's strength too, was uncertain of what to do, and asked {{an|Brock}} for advice. Brock told Ash to agree to trade, although given the fact that he was infatuated by the Gentleman's beautiful woman companion at the moment, he likely wasn't even fully paying attention to what they were talking about. Thus the trade was made, making Raticate Ash's 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 made the right decision by trading it away.
 
Ash only used Raticate once, mistakenly calling it out when he wanted to use his Butterfree to help fighting against the group of {{tc|Team Rocket Grunt}}s on board, having momentarily forgotten the trade had happened. Finally fully understanding how much he missed his Butterfree and how worried about its well-being he was, Ash came to realize that the trade had been a bad idea and he would rather have his first [[caught Pokémon]] back. The Gentleman agreed to trade Butterfree back, and the original trade was reversed while the St. Anne was sinking. Due to this delay, Ash and {{ashfr}} got trapped inside as the ship sank into the depths. Neither Raticate ornor its Trainer have been seen since.
