#120 Staryu / #121 Starmie
Staryu and Starmie are, well, starfish. Or sea stars, if you prefer. Anyway, their jewels were turned into proper eyes to give them a more relatable face—and to make them look a little like Beholders, from Dungeons & Dragons.
To add some variety to the family, Staryu is based on a starfish larvae. They can swim, and have bilateral symmetry.
Starmie's spines come from the crown-of-thorns starfish, and its jewel shape was adjusted to maintain its five-point symmetry.
