Staryu, known in Japan as Hitodeman (ヒトデマン), is a Water-type Pokémon that was introduced in Generation I that is located in the region of Kanto. It evolves into Starmie when exposed to a Water Stone.

 Pokémon description

Staryu is a golden-brown sea star-like Pokémon with five appendages. These appendages surround an exterior organ called the core, which is held in place by a golden ring looped around Staryu's left "leg". If any of Staryu's appendages are lost, it can grow them back with ease provided the core is still intact. The core resembles a red jewel and is similar to a madreporite. Staryu is a natural prey of some species of Pokémon, including Lumineon. However, due to its regenerative abilities, being preyed upon does not negatively affect it.

Staryu is one of the Pokémon that can be released from a Poké Ball in Super Smash Flash 2. Once released, Staryu will target one of the opponents, spin towards him/her and starts shooting star-like projectiles with Swift. It is rapid-fire, but the player can still move around while getting hit, so it can easily be escaped from with the correct directional influence.
