This Staraptor is a normal/flying-type Pokémon owned by Castle Valet Darach.


Darach brought out Staraptor after Houndoom was defeated at the hands of Platinum's Empoleon. Platinum told Empoleon to use Blizzard, but Staraptor dodged it by using Double Team. Darach told Platinum that even if Empoleon grazes it, it can use Roost. Platinum order Blizzard, back-to-back, which was successful as it defeated Staraptor, causing it to be covered in snow all over its body, including its face.
