Cry
Staryu (Japanese: ヒトデマン Hitodeman) is a gold, starfish-like Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It fires Water Gun from the top point of its body, and can release Swift from the jewel at its center. It evolves into Starmie with the use of a Water Stone. In the anime, Misty's Staryu has a cry which sounds like a ha! Staryu's core shines in a rainbow of seven colors, some people value this core as a type of jewellery.

Appearance

Staryu is a Star Shape Pokémon. It is star shaped, as its name suggests. Its "arms" are brown. It seems to have some kind of crystal or gem for a core. the core is surrounded by a yellow or gold "barrier."

Special abilities

Staryu can have the ability Illuminate or the ability Natural Cure. Illuminate causes wild Pokémon to be encountered more frequently when Staryu is in the top of the party. Natural Cure cures Staryu of any status effects when switched out. It can emit radio waves. It has the unique ability to regenerate its body if it is torn. As long as the core remains, it can regenerate. In rare instances, two separate Staryu can be created.

In the anime

Main article: Misty's Staryu

Evolution

Staryu evolves into Starmie by use of a Water Stone.
