Ash's Staraptor is one of Ash's Pokémon.


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.

  • Despite the fact Ash's Staraptor and other members of his evolution family know Gust, it is impossible for Starly, Staravia, or Staraptor to learn it in the games. This error was also present in the Japanese version. The dub changed it to Whirlwind in Starly's initial appearance, but left it as Gust until Getting the Pre-Contest Titters!, after Starly had evolved into Staravia, when it was dubbed as Whirlwind again, and has been since.
  • Though Staraptor is confirmed to be male, the Czech dub refers to him as female. The same happens in the Latin American Spanish dub.
  • Upon evolution into Staravia, he was the 40th Pokémon species Ash has owned, counting the technically unofficial Larvitar and Haunter.
  • Upon his final evolution, Staraptor became the 50th Pokémon that Ash has obtained, including evolutions and counting 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 amount of episodes to reach his final form with 116. Pidgeot taking 78, Noctowl being fully evolved upon its capture, Swellow taking 76 episodes and Unfezant taking 66 episodes to fully evolve.
  • When he 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.
