Though Staraptor is confirmed to be male, in the Czech and Latin American Spanish dub, Staraptor is female.
Upon his final evolution, Staraptor became the 50th Pokémon that Ash has obtained, including evolutions, Seaking and Haunter. However, Haunter was not officially his and Seaking was released as part of contest rules.
Out of all of Ash's Bird Pokémon, Staraptor took the longest to reach his final form with 116. Pidgeot taking 78, Noctowl being fully evolved upon capture, Swellow taking 76 episodes and Unfezant taking 66 episodes to fully evolve.
When Staraptor entered as a Staravia, Staraptor was the second of Ash's Pokémon to evolve during a PokéRinger tournament. The first was Swellow, who entered as a Taillow.
Out of all of Ash's Bird Pokemon it's the only one to learn a fighting-type move.
