Ash caught it as a {{p|Starly}} in ''[[DP002|Two Degrees of Separation]]'' while searching for {{AP|Pikachu}}, who was missing due to the antics of [[Team Rocket]]. {{TP|Dawn|Aipom|Ambipom}} was swinging through the trees and accidentally bumped into Starly, so the two Pokémon battled. Weakened by Aipom, Starly was captured and immediately used in the search for Pikachu. In ''[[DP003|When Pokémon Worlds Collide]]'', Starly had its first battle against another Starly belonging to [[Paul]] and lost.

In ''[[DP013|A Staravia is Born]]'', Starly evolved into a {{p|Staravia}} during a battle with [[Team Rocket]]. Immediately after its evolution Staravia had perfectly learned {{m|Aerial Ace}}. Evolving has also allowed it to grow much stronger and become very useful in searches.

Staravia was the only one of Ash's Pokémon who didn't participate in Ash's first Sinnoh [[Gym]] battle against [[Roark]]; however, Staravia helped out in Ash's second Sinnoh Gym battle, defeating [[Gardenia]]'s {{p|Cherubi}}. After seeing [[Reggie]]'s {{p|Staraptor}} use the powerful {{m|Brave Bird}} attack, Ash was inspired to teach it to Staravia. In the third Sinnoh [[Gym]] {{pkmn|battle}}, Staravia defeated [[Maylene]]'s {{p|Machoke}} and {{p|Meditite}}, as well as successfully mastering Brave Bird.

In ''[[DP186|Familiarity Breeds Strategy!]]'', it was used against Paul's {{p|Gastrodon}}. Ash realized that Paul's Gastrodon could use Counter Shield, and Staraptor was hit by the technique. When Gastrodon slammed it on the ground, it managed to use {{m|Close Combat}} on the ground to get away, but was hit with an {{m|Ice Beam}} in the process. It started to show signs of tiring, so Ash decided to recall it in place of {{AP|Buizel}}. Later on in ''[[DP187|A Real Rival Rouser!]]'', after {{AP|Buizel}} fell to Paul's {{p|Drapion}} Ash called it out again. However, it was unable to triumph against the superior power of Drapion's {{m|Cross Poison}} and {{m|Toxic Spikes}}.
