Cassidy's Raticate (Japanese: ヤマトのラッタ Yamato's Ratta) is Cassidy's main Pokémon.

History

Pre-series

Cassidy obtained Raticate sometime prior to the start of the series. In Training Daze, Raticate was with Cassidy and Butch when they tried to steel the red Snorlax (which ended up just being Viper in a costume), just as they got to it, all three fell down a trap. It was then seen injured when Cassidy and Butch were promoted to "villains in trianing".

Original series

Kanto

Raticate's first offical appearance was in The Breeding Center Secret, were it said it's line at the end of Butch and Cassidy's motto. It was later used to battle Ash and his Pikachu just as they were about to be arrested by Officer Jenny. Raticate never got a chance to attack in the battle, as one Thunderbolt was enough to faint it. Raticate wasn't seen sent back to it's Pokéball, so it's unknown how Cassidy got Raticate back for future appearances.

Johto

In The Fortune Hunters, Raticate was used to battle Ash's Totodile, the battle ended in a tie when Jessie, James, and Meowth (with James dressed up as a Moltres) interupted the match. Cassidy then had Raticate battle James's Victreebel and Jessie's Wobbuffet, with it and Butch's Primeape sending the entire trio blasting off. Raticate then battled Misty and her Poliwhirl, but lost when Ash's Pikachu used Thunderbolt once again.

Advanced Generation series

Cassidy's Raticate under the ownership of Butch

In The Ole' Berate and Switch!, it's revealed that Butch has access to use Cassidy's Raticate. It battled Ash's Pikachu, and was defeated by another Thunderbolt.

Personality and characteristics

Despite Raticate being one of, if not the first Pokémon Cassidy's ever owned, the two don't appear to have a strong bond. Raticate does listen to Cassidy's commands, so there is some bond, but considering Cassidy ran away without calling it back, and that it's acts the same to battle commands from Butch, Cassidy dosen't appear to care for Raticate. It's also very weak to electric attacks, or at least Thunderbolt.
