Uh, no, I think he means that each pokemon you find might have a different aspect to them (curly hair, messy hair, different ear) that other pokemon can inherit.
I don't think breeding a pikachu with a ratatta with produce something like a pikachu with ratatta's tail or anything. Maybe if the ratatta has curly hair, the pikachu might inherit it.
