These Pokémon are regarded as some of the worst pests in history. They destroy property, feed on stored food, and, most notoriously of all, pass diseases on to humans. The dreaded Purple Pox, which killed millions of people in regions all across the world in medieval times, started in this species and then spread to humans. Extermination campaigns are waged against them, and they’ve invaded places they’re not normally native to (though local predators usually keep them under control). Villainous fictional portrayals of this line in every medium are as numerous as the real thing, and nigh-impossible to completely list. (One powerful entertainment company has a mascot known as [[ClassicDisneyShorts Petey Pikachu]]; the company’s [[HateDumb detractors]] often suggest it should be replaced with a Ratatta.)

However, there are some bright spots in human-Ratatta/Raticate relations. They are often bred in captivity, and the resulting, more docile individuals are popular as pets, laboratory Pokemon and as beginner Pokémon for Trainers. While rare, sympathetic fictional portrayals exist; [[WesternAnimation/FlushedAway one]] features a pet Ratatta that finds himself in the world of sewer Ratatta, and [[{{Ratatouille}} another]] stars a Ratatta that dreams of being a gourmet chef, while a third features a mutated Raticate as the mentor of [[TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles four mutated Squirtle that are quite heavily into martial arts... and pizza.]]

Mating ceremonies are nonexistent – mating is, in fact, the default response when two unrelated members of this species meet while foraging. The female nests in a burrow or other sheltered area and gives birth to around seven offspring, although they can reach twice that number. They wean off her milk and grow independent quickly, allowing them to continue the cycle soon after.

Part of the reason this line is so common is that it breeds very frequently – there is now true breeding season, and females can be found raising young every year, and even multiple times a year. They can breed at a young age - Ratatta is one of the few Pokémon to naturally, frequently breed in its first evolutionary stage.

Ratatta spend most of their day foraging and scavenging for food scraps and looking for live prey. Typically, said prey are very young members of other Pokémon species, but they can work together to take down larger meals – Professor Rowan, on a visit to Kanto, once observed a group of Ratatta taking down an Ivysaur. However, they must always be cautious – for while they eat pretty much anything, pretty much every predator likes to eat them, so Ratatta must remain ever vigilant, swiveling their ears even while sleeping.
