Hamstar are round, brown rodent Pokémon that show striking similarities to hamsters. They have two bobbled ears that are a pale sandy color, which are generally used to add cuteness and the ability to hear a lot better to them as a whole. They have pitch black eyes with white dots in, surrounded by the pale sandy color. They have two buck teeth visibly with their mouths closed. They have a large, fluffy sandy tail on its backside which allow them to tuck themselves up.
Hamstar can use its front two teeth to bite into any enemies.
Hamstar always seem to compete with other Hamstar about who is the cutest out of the group. They barely fight other Pokémon, unless feeling very threatened.
Hamstar are found in both the wild and as pets in trainers' homes. They can be found across the region in grassy areas.
This Pokémon is a favored pet because of their soft fur and gentle nature. It has been said that touching the star on the back of a Hamstar will bring you good luck.
Hamstar is based off a hamster, commonly owned as a domestic pet in various areas.
When trying to think of an animal that could be a Normal-type and very common, I was lost on what to do until I saw a show on tv that had a hamster and thats where the idea came from, I wanted it to stand out and not be just "normal" looking, so I gave it a star on it's back to be cute. That's also how its name came to be. Hamstar's design has never changed, even though its sprite has a few times.
Hamstar is a combination of the words "hamster" and "star". The word "star" obviously referencing the star on its back.
