Ranking Pokemon Sun and Moon Alola Forms from Worst to Best

8) Raticate

Raticate is an overall mediocre Alola Form, but it has a few things going for it. It's shocking design aside, it has a great movepool. It can learn buffs like Swords Dance or Focus Energy and pair them with the strong Physical moves it learns.

However, it's held back by a low stat total that's spread incredibly thin. Pair that with its incredible weakness to Fighting -- thanks to the Normal and Dark typing -- and it's almost not even worth using. Almost.

It gets the Ability Hustle, which powers up Physical moves at the cost of 20% accuracy. Pair this with Sucker Punch -- a move that never misses -- and Raticate commands a presence that causes Psychic and Ghost types to tremble in their boots.
