Fear Ratata

I know this is sort of a noob question, but I've been aware of the Fear Ratata strategy for some time and decided I was going to abuse it in Battle Tower against the AI. But the thing is, how exactly do I go about getting a Lv 1 Ratata that knows quick attack and endeavor? It learns Quick Attack at Lv 4, and Endeavor at Lv 34 and I only have D/P so I can't use the move tutor. Is there a breeding strategy I can use to acquire one?

You don't need chain breeding for FEAR Rattata. Just get two Raticate of different gender from Route 225 (north of Fight Area) and they should both have Quick Attack and Endeavor, thus the baby will as well.

I'm sorry.  I'm thinking of R/S/E.

FYI, the strategy can also be used with Doduo, Taillow, Treecko, Smeargle (obviously), Phanpy (with Ice Shard), and several others.  A lot of them need Platinum move tutors for Endeavor and Sucker Punch/Vacuum Wave, like Wormadam, Chimchar, and Mankey.
