Staraptor (Japanese: ムクホーク Mukuhawk) is a dual-type Normal/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves from Staravia starting at level 34. It is the final form of Starly.

Biology

Staraptor is a grayish-brown, avian Pokémon similar to a large bird of prey. It has small, red eyes and a thin, yellow beak with a black tip. There is a circular white patch on its forehead, which is smaller on the female. Larger white markings cover the front of its throat and chest, separated by a black ruff encircling the shoulders. A red-tipped, black crest extends over its head, nearly reaching the tip of its beak. Staraptor is fussy about the shape of this comb, which it uses to appear larger and frighten enemies. It has large wings, five black-tipped tail feathers, and yellow feet with black talons. Its powerful wing and leg muscles allow it fly effortlessly while carrying a small Pokémon. Upon evolution, this Pokémon leaves its flock to live alone. It can be highly aggressive, persistently attacking even larger foes in spite of illness or injury.

Staraptor is one of the Pokémon used by the Advanced level Grunt of Team Galactic. It was first used to take the Grunt to the destroyed camera machine used by Saturn in his fight against Paka and Uji. It was later used in the mugging of Mr. Berlitz and later to battle Diamond at the Galactic HQ.

Staraptor was later used by Castle Valet Darach in his battle against Platinum. It used a combination of Double Team and Roost to tire Platinum's Empoleon, but Empoleon's Blizzard eventually won out.

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga

Staraptor is one of the Pokémon owned by Jun. It was used in battles against Hareta and Koya.

Trivia

Origin

Staraptor is based on the white-cheeked starling, a common species of bird found throughout Asia, combined with a bird of prey. Although it largely resembles the starling in appearance, much of its inspiration comes from hawks and falcons, particularly its predatory nature and aerial speed. It also has strong similarities to the harpy eagle. The feathers hanging over its face are similar to the long-crested eagle.

Name origin

Staraptor is a combination of starling and raptor (a predatory bird).

Mukuhawk is a combination of 椋鳥 mukudori (gray starling) and hawk.
