This Staraptor is a normal/flying-type Pokémon owned by Ash. It is the first Pokémon Ash obtained in the Sinnoh region.


Ash captured Staraptor as a Starly, and it evolved into Staravia when battling Team Rocket. Then, when they were battling Paul in a Pokéringer Contest, Staravia soon evolved into Staraptor and learned Close Combat, defeating Paul's Honchkrow. When Ash finished the Sinnoh League and decided to begin a new start in the Unova region journey, he sent Staraptor to Professor Oak's Lab.
