Starly (Japanese: ムックル Mukkuru) is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves into Staravia starting at level 14, which evolves into Staraptor starting at level 34.

Biology

Physiology

Starly is a bird with a brownish-gray colored body. The lower half of its wings as well as its head are black. Its face looks like it is wearing a white mask, with black eyes with white pupils as well as a thin orange beak with the tip of it painted black. On its chest is a white spot. Starly's feet are orange and also has three tailfeathers: two black and one white in the middle.

Gender differences

The white spot on a female's forehead is smaller.

Special abilities

Although small, they are described to flap their wings with great power.

Behavior

Starly are very complacent Pokémon, like most Flying-types. Cool and calm at nearly all times, they are also very sociable creatures, although they may bicker if their group becomes too big. Starly's calls are known to be very strident.

Habitat

Starly live in forests, indicating that they make nests in the trees like common birds. Despite this, they are more often found in the grassy roads near small towns that aren't very big. They have territories, but they are not as large as those of their evolved forms.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Starly prey on small bug Pokémon. Starly has also been depicted to consume the acorn-like Berries growing on the bushes of Grotle.

Other

Starly made its first animated appearance in Following A Maiden's Voyage!, with one being examined at Professor Rowan's lab.

Paul captured three Starly in When Pokémon Worlds Collide!. The first two were released because they didn't know Aerial Ace; although the third could use the move and easily beat Ash's Starly, Paul still deemed it weak and released it as well in the same episode.

Minor appearances

Brock healed a wild Starly in One Big Happiny Family!.

Three Starly were also seen under Reggie's care in Lost Leader Strategy!.

A Starly appeared in The Lonely Snover!. Another Starly appeared in Sliding Into Seventh!.

Starly appeared in Zoroark: Master of Illusions as a few of the many local Pokémon who lives in Crown City. A flock of them worked with the other Pokémon in surrounding Zorua in the park to attack him, angry at Zorua for what Zoroark did to the city. Before a fight broke out, the Starly, along with the other Pokémon, were calmed by Celebi.

A Starly made a brief cameo in SS024, outside Professor Rowan's lab.

Trophy Information

"A Starling Pokémon. It usually lives and travels in large flocks, so a single Starly will go unnoticed. To make up for this, its call is very noisy. It can often be found in places with heavy vegetation. Its small frame and cute appearance belie the incredible power with which it flaps its wings. When it levels up, it evolves into Staravia."
