But the 22-year-old Victorian will take any opportunity he can get to put the wind up India's pint-sized batsmen Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag in the Test series starting on February 22 in Chennai.
"I like to bowl fast and with aggression so that won't change much," says Pattinson, who is yet to play a Test in India and picked up 1-24 off nine overs in the drawn two-day game against India Board XI which finished on Wednesday.
"Every bowler is going to have something a little bit different, whether that's (being) the enforcer or ...
"When I go out there and cross the line you're playing a Test match so it's pretty fiery."
Pattinson said he was heartened by the bounce and carry on offer for the quicks at Chennai's Guru Nanak College Ground, where Australia made 241 and 0-15 and the home side scored 230.
Pattinson and seam-bowling all-rounder Moises Henriques (4-12) claimed half the wickets to fall in the home team's innings.
Australia will play a three-day game against India A starting on Saturday.
"They talk about it being slow and low but there was a little bit of carry with the new ball," Pattinson said.
"I was a bit surprised. You can use your bouncer quite effectively early on.
"Seeing that's pretty exciting.
"You'll see us probably use that more often over here, especially to the openers to try to unsettle them."
Pattinson says the ball tends to start reverse-swinging early in the day's play in India which is also a tactic Australia's bowlers will be keen to exploit, as Henriques did on Wednesday.
After missing the last four Tests of Australia's home summer against South Africa and Sri Lanka with a side injury, the right-armer says he's feeling confident he's back in the rhythm of red-ball cricket again.
Skipper Michael Clarke, who batted in the nets on Thursday, is keen to prove his fitness for the three-day game after missing last Sunday's fifth one-dayer against West Indies in Melbourne with a sore hamstring.
Opener David Warner (fractured thumb) didn't bat on Thursday.
