Is it just me, or does the Red/Blue sprite look like the Gold sprite, except flipped and less color? PL12 01:16, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

I do not see itUser:Darth Cookie Monster 01:18, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
Spr 1b 120.pngSpr 2g 120.png I think they look similar. PL12 01:20, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
I still do not see it, but whatever floats your boatUser:Darth Cookie Monster 01:21, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
Guess it's just me. PL12 01:22, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
I am also slightly colorblind, so yeahUser:Darth Cookie Monster 01:23, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
I see it!! but I don't think it is flipped...just turned. MoldyOrange 01:23, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
Yay! I'm not crazy! PL12 01:24, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
YAY! COLORBLIND EYESUser:Darth Cookie Monster 01:25, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
They look similar because it's the same Pokémon and Staryu isn't very expressive. The Gold sprite has different shading. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 07:07, 23 April 2008 (UTC)


The gem in the center of Staryu looks like a PokéBall. Could someone add this to the trivia secion? ryan 17:56, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

I;m sorry, I don't see it. Even if it does, I doubt it would be note worth. The Dark Fiddler 18:01, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
Not so much...color-wise, yeah, but that's like saying Wurmple looks like a PokéBall since it's red and white. --gabbie | talk 18:04, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
How about shaped like a PokéBall? ShinyPiKa 20:49, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

It's simply just a round gemstone. Besides, we don't even know if it's completely spherical or flat on the back. ~$aturn¥oshi THE VOICES 14:53, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Egg Moves

I was thinking we should list Staryu's Egg Moves for Gold and Silver, assuming, of course, we note that they're only for Gold and Silver. Would that be too much? Rawr I say! 20:37, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Staryu has egg moves in Gold and Silver? I'm Missingno. Master, and I approve this message. 21:36, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
It does? Aren't they, uh, only moves it can learn by level anyway? TTEchidna 05:26, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Well, the article says it does, and I don't know if it can only learn them by level up anyway. That's the point to my question. Rawr I say! 15:11, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Staryu's Points

Staryu has a pentagon-shaped tip at the end of its points as shown at the bottom tip here:

Should this be added to the "Physiology" section? Rpp 23:52, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

I was wondering something about location

I see that for every pokemon, there is a helpful box that tells us where to retrieve this pokemon, and in what version. I would like to suggest that we also include the level you meet it at. I'd do it for a lot of articles, and for all the Pokemon who I do know this information about. - Zelrio

This wouldn't be the place for it, because some Pokémon are just so common. We do list, however, the locations you can find every Pokémon and if you go to that article (i.e. Route 220) you can see it there. If this page is missing information be sure to add it if you can. —darklordtrom 21:08, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Back side

In back side it seem that part of front gem covered attach to one of its leg side.Does it mean anything? Meearaimeng 10:38, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

No, not really. Just a design thing I guess...Ataro 10:57, 31 December 2010 (UTC)
It's been in the Physiology section for ages guys =P (Ash zane 00:11, 3 March 2011 (UTC))

The Orb

Could it be Mentioned in the trivia (when we can add it again) that the Orb in the middle of Staryu has Changed size throughout the generations? it's small in Gen 1 and 2, and in Gen 3 it's considerably bigger Buizel1991 13:41, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Reflect Type Trivia

Maybe it could be added to trivia section that Staryu is the only non-legendary Pokemon that can learn Reflect Type without need for an event. Also, that it's the only non-legendary Pokemon that can learn Reflect Type by leveling up.--Sylveon (talk) 02:15, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

Since only three Pokemon learn it at all, without events, I personally feel that it's not particularly notable. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 02:48, 20 March 2013 (UTC)
Fair enough.--Sylveon (talk) 03:42, 28 March 2013 (UTC)

Wrong Location

Staryu is not on Route 223 in Platinum. Staryu is in Sunyshore City in Platinum.

Name origin

I know it's a little late to say this, but I was wondering if the "ryu" from "Staryu" could derive from "ryuusei" ( 流星; りゅうせい )? Ryuusei means shooting star/meteor in Japanese, and I think this fits Staryu perfectly-- seeing how it moves around and uses Swift in the air. Then again SM already has Minior, which is the true Meteor Pokemon. What do you guys think? - unsigned comment from DecafSnorlax (talkcontribs)

Ultraman Reference

I wondered why this article made no mention of the reference to Ultraman. Its Japanese name is Hitodeman which seems to be a riff on Ultraman. It seems to be extraterrestrial like Ultraman. Its cry is similar to Ultraman's "Hiya" rather than a traditional Pokemon cry where it says its name. Its red jewel even blinks like Ultraman's when they are both low on health!
