Starmie (Japanese: スターミー Starmie) is a dual-type Water/Psychic Pokémon.

It evolves from Staryu via Water Stone.

Biology

Physiology

Starmie, like its pre-evolved form, resembles a sea star. This time its main body is violet but it still retains the gold formation on its front. Starmie’s red jewel core is larger than Staryu’s and has developed to resemble a cut precious stone. The major change that took place upon evolution to Starmie was the growing of a second star on its back. It is semi-attached being able to spin 360°.

Gender differences

Starmie is a genderless species.

Special abilities

Starmie’s central core shines with the seven colors of the rainbow when looked at from different angles, but usually shows up red more than any other color. It can also emit electrical waves from the core that are powerful enough to reach the furthest parts of the universe.

It uses it second star to propel itself through the water and even to launch out of the water and fly through the air for short periods of time. This also allows it use attacks like Rapid Spin.

Starmie still has all of the abilities of Staryu including re-growing limbs, changing its skin's color and texture, and using its core for energy attacks.

Behavior

As Starmie, the Pokémon’s behaviors hint more and more to it being an alien from another planet. At night it becomes active, just like Staryu, although now it will send off mysterious radio signals while its luminescent core flickers.

Habitat

Starmie are a rare sight in the wild, as they require a Water Stone to evolve from Staryu. Not only this, but they are nocturnal, usually only appearing at night. If they are ever found in the wild it is in the deepest parts of the ocean among many other Staryu.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Like most Pokémon, Starmie’s eating habits are unknown but it’s very probable it filter feeds considering the Pokémon’s lack of a mouth.

In the anime

Misty's Starmie first appeared in The Water Flowers of Cerulean City.

A trainer named Marina used a Starmie to battle Misty in Bye Bye Psyduck.

Rudy, the Gym Leader of Trovita Island, used a Starmie in his battle against Ash's Squirtle in Misty Meets her Match.

In the manga

Pokémon Special

Starmie is one of Misty's Pokémon, it makes a cameo in the Red, Green & Blue chapter in Gyarados Splashes In! in one of her Poké Balls, however it debuts later in its round Suddenly Starmie defeating Red in the Cerulean Gym.

In the TCG

Main article: Starmie (TCG)

Other appearances

Trivia

  • Starmie is one of three Pokémon (the others being Staryu and Zubat) that have no apparent eyes.
  • Starmie is tied with Floatzel for the fastest Water-type Pokémon with the base speed of 115.
  • Despite being a genderless Pokémon, it was still able to learn egg moves in Gold and Silver. This was fixed in Crystal where it could no longer breed with any Pokémon except Ditto.
  • Due to restrictions in the Game Boy Color's palette, only two colors, along with white and black, can be used in a sprite. This is the reason for the purple color of the center gem in Starmie's Generation II sprite.

Origin

It appears to be a stylized seastar. But on account of the second star on its back, it bears resemblance to a crown of thorns starfish.

Name origin

Starmie's name is derived from star, referring to its shape, and mie, which may be a misspelling of me, in opposition to the yu in Staryu. Its name may also involve 珠, which can be read as mi, meaning gem or jewel, obviously referring to its core.

In other languages

  • German: Starmie
  • French: Staross - From the English words star and us.
  • Korean: 아쿠스타 Akuseuta
