WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a SPECIAL ROOM to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a Monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death.
Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 minutes someone will say i love you or I'm SORRY

Wait. If they have blood like a horseshoe crab, why are their blood vessels still red? Flesh too, come to think of it.

These realistically anatomical pokemon seem a little different from their anime counterparts, do they evolve the same way, or are they just different breeds of the same creatures? You mention ancient ancestors of Pokemon too, did they evolve from more primitive forms like real animals, as well as their leveling evolution? Like maybe a prehistoric Staryu was originally gigantic compared to their modern counterparts?

English is not my first language, so I'm a bit confused. If I understand correctly, each "arm" is its own organism. They can regenerate damaged or lost body parts.
"Should a detached limb survive,it is often capable of fully regrowing the organism from which it was lost". Does this mean that an arm can fully grow into a new Staryu? That's freaky in my book :O

That's how real life Starfish reproduce. The leave an arm behind, then a new starish grows out =D

Had no idea. I don't think of the oceans as being full of starfish, or in the pokemon world, Staryu.

There's a little typo: you wrote Shelldar, but it should be Shellder, in the first body description.

And I'd like to say that you are doing an amazing job. Keep up with the good job!

I mean, I hate to be that guy, but Staryu are genderless, so they can only breed with Ditto to reproduce. ^^;

Still love it though!

Ah, I said they could reproduce sexually. That doesn't necessarily mean they have genders. They could all be hermaphroditic.
