Staravia is an avian Pokémon that is grayish-brown in color with black and white patterns. It has a black head and upper body with a “M”-shaped pattern across its white breast. A grayish-brown patch on its forehead, which is smaller on the female. It has a white mask-like marking on its face with a spike design down the bottom edge. It has a long, orange beak with a black tip and tiny, black eyes with white pupils. A large tuft of feathers bends forward on the back of its head. It bears black bottom half to its wings and black tail feathers with a single white feather in the middle. Its anisodactyl feet are orange with black talons.
Staravia like to dwell among woods and meadows, where it hunts Bug Pokémon. Aware of its own vulnerability, it creates flocks of its own kind and screams loudly if left alone. These flocks, however, may be quite territorial. Territorial conflicts will erupt when two opposing groups meet. The plume on the head of a powerful Staravia may be used to identify it.
