Pokédex Description

Generation 1
Red, Blue

An enigmatic POKéMON that can effortlessly regenerate any appendage it loses in battle.

Yellow

As long as the center section is unharmed, it can grow back fully even if it is chopped to bits.

Generation 2
Gold

At night, the center of its body slowly flickers with the same rhythm as a human heartbeat.

Silver

Even if its body is torn, it can regenerate as long as the glowing central core remains intact.

Crystal

When the stars twinkle at night, it floats up from the sea floor, and its body's center core flickers.

Generation 3
Ruby

STARYU’s center section has an organ called the core that shines bright red. If you go to a beach toward the end of summer, the glowing cores of these POKéMON look like the stars in the sky.

Sapphire

STARYU apparently communicates with the stars in the night sky by flashing the red core at the center of its body. If parts of its body are torn, this POKéMON simply regenerates the missing pieces and limbs.

Emerald

It gathers with others in the night and makes its red core glow on and off with the twinkling stars. It can regenerate limbs if they are severed from its body.

FireRed

It appears in large numbers by seashores. At night, its central core flashes with a red light.

LeafGreen

An enigmatic POKéMON that can effortlessly regenerate any appendage it loses in battle.

Generation 4
Diamond, Pearl, Platinum

If its body is torn, it can grow back if the red core remains. The core flashes at midnight.

HeartGold

At night, the middle of its body slowly flickers with the same rhythm as a human heartbeat.

SoulSilver

Even if its body is torn, it can regenerate as long as the glowing central core remains intact.

Generation 5
Black, White

If its body is torn, it can grow back if the red core remains. The core flashes at midnight.

Black 2, White 2

As long as its red core remains, it can regenerate its body instantly, even if it’s torn apart.

Generation 6
X

Even if its body is torn, it can regenerate as long as the glowing central core remains intact.

Y

It appears in large numbers by seashores. At night, its central core flashes with a red light.

Omega Ruby

Staryu’s center section has an organ called the core that shines bright red. If you go to a beach toward the end of summer, the glowing cores of these Pokémon look like the stars in the sky.

Alpha Sapphire

Staryu apparently communicates with the stars in the night sky by flashing the red core at the center of its body. If parts of its body are torn, this Pokémon simply regenerates the missing pieces and limbs.

Generation 7
Moon

This Pokémon gets nibbled on by Lumineon and others. Thanks to its red core, it regenerates fast, so it’s unconcerned by their snack attacks.

Ultra Sun

In many places, there are folktales of stardust falling into the ocean and becoming Staryu.
