Staraptor (ムクホーク) is the 12th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Normal/Flying Type, and it is known as the Predator Pokémon.

Staraptor uses the Intimidate Ability. When Staraptor enters battle with this Ability, the Attack of its opponent(s) decreases by one stage. A second Ability is available to Staraptor from the Dream World, the Reckless Ability. This Ability increases the power of its recoil-causing moves by 20%, but the amount of recoil damage that it takes increases as well.

Starly evolves into Staravia at Level 14 and a second time into Staraptor at Level 34.

Staraptor is in the Flying Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Staraptor 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

Staravia appears at a variety of different locations in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia and Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, in the Present.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Staraptor finds itself in the Borderline Tier of Competitive Battling. While it has a high Attack and great Speed, it doesn't have the defenses to take too many attacks, especially Special Attacks. In UnderUsed play, though, Staraptor could easily destroy many Pokemon, and was deemed too broken for play there.
