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

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

Biology

Starly is an avian Pokémon with primarily grayish-brown plumage. There is a white marking on its face, resembling a mask, and a white spot on its chest. The top portion of the mask marking is smaller on the female. The rest of its head and the lower half of its wings are black. Starly has a long, orange beak with a black tip and oval, black eyes with white pupils. A small tuft of feathers curls over the back and its head, and a small, pointed ruff surrounds its neck. It has two black tail feathers with a white feather between them. Its feet are orange with three toes in the front and one in the back. It preys on small Bug Pokémon and Cherubi. In the anime, it has also been seen consuming the acorn-like Berries grown on the bushes of Grotle.

Although capable of flapping its wings powerfully, Starly is weak and inconspicuous when alone. It forms large flocks to protect itself. However, individuals will begin to bicker if the group becomes too large. This Pokémon's cry is harsh, and its singing can become annoying. Starly congregates in mountains and fields, where it hunts for bug Pokémon.

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."

Trivia

  • In Generation V games, Starly's Hidden Ability is the same as its first Ability, Keen Eye, unlike its evolutions, which have the Hidden Ability Reckless. A Starly which will evolve into a Staravia with Reckless can be bred to produce Starly that will evolve into a Staravia with Reckless. If a Starly that will evolve into a Staravia with Reckless is transferred to the Generation VI games, its Ability will become Reckless.
    • This means that in Generation V, Starly is the only unevolved Pokémon without a Hidden Ability that evolves into a Pokémon with a Hidden Ability.
  • Overworld sprites of Starly are shown in the intro of Pokémon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum and before the player and their Rival encounter them in battle. They are the only non-legendary Pokémon to get overworld sprites in the Pokémon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum series that are not allowed in Amity Square.

Origin

Starly is based on a young white-cheeked starling.

Name origin

Starly is derived from starling.

Mukkuru is a combination of 椋鳥 mukudori (gray starling) and クルクル kurukuru (onomatopoeia of a bird's call).
