Last night’s Pokemon Moon and Sun also brought us the brilliance that is Alolan Raticate. Basically, he’s black but he’s also put on a ton of weight. This is said to be due to the fact that he now lives in urban areas, which has lead to a higher-calorie diet than the Raticate of other regions.
This basically means that their bodies are tougher but they’re also a lot fatter. Alolan Raticate is the Totem Pokemon of the trial that takes place in Verdant Cavern on Melemele Island in Pokemon Moon.
