Staravia, the first evolution of Starly, is the easiest Flying-Type Pokemon you can catch in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. You can easily find Starly at early locations like Route 201, 202, 203, 204, 209, 212, as well as on the Great Marsh and Lake Verity. And then simply train it to level 14, and you got yourself a Staravia. If you want to skip the training, Staravia itself can be found at Route 209, 212, Lake Valor, Sendoff Spring, Trophy Garden, and Valor Lakefront. Now the question is when Staravia starts to evolve into Staraptor in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl?
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl: Staravia Evolution
To evolve Staravia into Staraptor in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, you need to level it up to level 34. Compared to its Normal/Flying-type peers, Staraptor really shines thanks to its Intimidate Ability and surprise Close Combat and Final Gambit to deal with pesky Ice, Steel, and Rock opponents. Aside from its stylish mohawk, anyway. Read on below for more details about Staraptor.
