Startling Staraptor/VS. Staraptor (Japanese: VSムクホーク VS. Staraptor) is the 376th round of the Diamond & Pearl chapter in the Pokémon Adventures manga.
At the opening of this round, the scene cuts to the Galactic building. Cyrus comes to see Galactic's bomb. His servant explains the situation and he decides to start his plan the next week. Then, Platinum is seen sitting in front of the Canalave Gym. She is still shocked and cannot continue to stay with Diamond and Pearl. However, her father is still in the cage, so she cannot yet leave the Gym.
That night, Platinum is still thinking, and she is so tired that she falls asleep. Then, the cloaked Galactic grunt appears and explains the plan to Platinum and tells her that he had come to release her father. Platinum has a nightmare from that interaction. When she wakes up in the morning, she starts writing something. The scene then cuts to Diamond and Pearl as they prepare to leave followed by their having a conversation with Byron. Before they can leave, their Pokédex makes a sound and Platinum approaches. She starts to read what she had written.

At the end of the chapter, she decides to travel to stop Galactic's plan.
