Staraptor is a Normal/Flying-type Pokémon that evolves from Staravia at Lv. 34, which evolves from Starly at Lv. 14.


Staraptor is a grayish-brown, avian Pokémon similar to a large bird of prey. It has small, red eyes and a thin, yellow beak with a black tip. There is a circular white patch on its forehead, which is smaller on the female. Larger white markings cover the front of its throat and chest, separated by a black ruff encircling the shoulders. A red-tipped, black crest extends over its head, nearly reaching the tip of its beak. It has large wings, five black-tipped tail feathers, and yellow feet with black talons.

Gender Differences[]

The white spot on Staraptor's forehead is larger on males.


Staraptor can be highly aggressive, persistently attacking even larger foes in spite of illness or injury.

Staraptor is fussy about the shape of its crest, which it uses to appear larger and frighten enemies.

Upon evolution, Staraptor leaves its flock to live alone.


Staraptor's powerful wing and leg muscles allow it fly effortlessly while carrying the weight of two people.
