Starmie (Japanese: スターミー Sutaamii) is a starfish-like Water/Psychic-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. At the center of its body is a red core, which sends mysterious radio signals into the night sky.

## Appearance

Interestingly Starmie's "back-half" has been depicted several different ways. In the anime Starmie has the appearance of two starfish fused together; while in more modern games the back-half has been shown to spin wildly completely independent of the front-half of the Pokémon. Many fans tend to think of the anime's depiction as the more realistic of the two considering the rapid spinning would obviously get in the way of a trainer trying to surf on this particular Pokémon. Starmie's core shines in a rainbow of seven colors, some people value this core as a type of jewellery.

## In the anime

Main article: Misty's Starmie

In the anime, Misty owns both Starmie and a Staryu at the same time making it one of the extremely rare cases that trainer has both pre- and post-evolutions on their person at the same time. She later gave away Starmie to the Cerulean Gym to preform underwater shows, but kept her Staryu.

## Evolution

Starmie evolves from Staryu with the use of a Water Stone.
