X = Sub-optimal moveset with zero viability

Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Water Gun paired with Hydro Pump allows Starmie to be Water-type glass cannon.

  • Tackle, Quick Attack, and Hidden Power are inferior; lack of STAB, coverage, and DPS make them non-viable.

  • Even a Water-type Hidden Power is strictly worse than Water Gun on offense.

  • Psychic is on par with Psybeam, although Starmie is not a great Psychic-type attacker.

  • Power Gem is inferior, offering neither STAB nor meaningful coverage.

     

Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Hidden Power is the preferred fast move for its high defensive DPS and surprise typing factor.

  • Psybeam and Power Gem are Starmie’s only real usable defensive charge moves; the former has STAB and hits earlier.

  • Hydro Pump and Psychic hit hard and early, but Starmie is far too frail to use them on defense.
Rating Explanation

When picking from the plethora of Water-types, Starmie holds a slight Atk advantage over top tier ‘mons like Vaporeon and Omastar. The obvious reason Starmie doesn’t see wider use: it’s made of wet tissue paper. The addition of Waterfall to Gyarados and introduction of new Gen 3 Water-type species with similar Atk further pushes Starmie into irrelevancy.
