Hello friends.

I am someone who is terrible when it comes to breeding moves upon baby pokèmon. This said, is it possible to breed thunder wave onto a baby Staryu? If this is something I've dreamed up...just let me down gently, o.k.?

Thanks once again!

Your pokèlogically challenged friend,

UberSchmack

No, since Staryu has no gender...

another enigma! (funny, enigma happens to be my staryu's name.) staryu has no gender, but can apparently breed with shellder and tentacool to get aurora beam, barrier, and supersonic. is this really possible without a gender?

As spunman pointed out, Staryu can get several moves through breeding. However, it can't get Thunder Wave this way, because (1) it's not on its bred moves list, (2) it's not a TM in G/S, and (3) it doesn't learn it naturally. If any of these conditions were met, Staryu would be able to get Twave through breeding. But they aren't, so it can't.

Another diminsion of this enigma (also my Espion's name, I may change it to avoid copyright infringement) is that people swear that Staryu can only breed with Ditto. Did anyone else hear about crossbreeding with Shellder or Tentacool?

since staryu has no gender, i ASSUME it doesn't matter what sex it breeds with. but please, correct me if i'm wrong! if i knew it beyond a shadow of a doubt, i wouldn't be posting this.

and how would your espeon's name infringe on any copyrights? you mean my staryu? or maybe the music group? either way, you're not breaking any laws. trust me.

hm.
it seems that Staryu can't learn any unique moves though breeding. Apparently Nintendo forgot that Staryu was genderless in gold/silver, and gave him breedable moves that he could never get because he's genderless. Anyway, i changed my mind about this once I saw the breeding list for Pokemon Crystal, in which Staryu's breedable moves list is wiped clean - looks like Nintendo cleaned up their mistake.

So now, Staryu cannot breed and therefore cannot learn Barrier, Supersonic, and Aurora Beam. Right? (Or did I misunderstand, as usual?)

So, it has been settled that you can:

a) Only breed Staryu/Starmie with Ditto

and

b) Only expect to see moves on your baby Staryu that Staryu will learn naturally

Also, the copyright infringement thing was a joke (which you probably understood, but I'm just saying for those who didn't). I'm just a little bummed that there are other Pokèmon who bear the name of Enigma. I feel so...so...unoriginal! <sniff>
