Staryu is a water-type Pokemon that looks like a brown starfish with a red jewel in the center. Staryu, being a water Pokemon that cannot adapt to land, can only be found by fishing. Staryu can recover missing parts as long as its jewel remains intact. In the anime, Staryu was one of the Pokemon Misty owned. Staryu is genderless, and evolves into Starmie with the use of a Water Stone. Staryu's only appearance in an animutation was in a Pokemon screenshot, and even then, only one of its legs was visible.
