Hamstar is a Normal-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Snuffuzz starting at level 19.

Biology

Physiology

Hamstar are round, brown rodent Pokémon that show striking similarities to hamsters. They have two bobbled ears that are a pale sandy color and brown at the base, which are generally used to add cuteness and the ability to hear a lot better to them as a whole. They have black eyes with white pupils, 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. They have a large pale sandy colored star-shaped marking on their backs, which is said to bring good luck to those who touch it.

Gender Differences

None.

Special Abilities

Hamstar can use its front two teeth to bite into any enemies, but only if they feel threatened. Therefore, along with their soft fur, Hamstar is favored as a pet. The large star-shaped marking on its back is said to bring good luck to anyone who touches it.

Behavior

Hamstar always seem to compete with other Hamstar about who is the cutest out of the group. They very rarely fight other Pokémon, unless they are feeling very threatened. Because of their soft fur and gentle nature, Hamstar are favored as pets. Also, touching the star-shaped marking on its back is said to bring you good luck.

Habitat

Hamstar are found in both the wild and as pets in trainers' homes. They can also be found across the Rikoto region in grassy areas. Wild Hamstar are found in the grass in the Mossy Forest, in the Serpentine Garden, in the Dullfern Forest, and on Routes 1, 3 and 4.

Shiny Coloration Differences

For Shiny Hamstar, the brown turns teal.

Trivia

  • Prior to Version 1.0.1, Hamstar used Caterpie's cry.
  • A couple of Hamstar's old designs show it having significantly different ears, having no brown at all at the base.

Origin

  • Hamstar is based off a hamster, a rodent commonly owned as a domestic pet in various areas.
  • When trying to think of an animal that could be a Normal-type and is found very commonly, I was lost on what to do, until I saw a show on TV that had a hamster in it, and that's where the idea came from. I wanted it to stand out and not be just "normal" looking, so I gave it a star-shaped marking on it's back to be cute. That's also how its name came to be. Hamstar's base design has never changed, even though its sprite has a few times.

Name Origin

Hamstar's name comes from a combination of the words Hamster and star. The word star is obviously referencing the star-shaped marking on its back.
