After finishing the intro of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you will be able to leave Mesagoza and the Naraja Academy to begin the Treasure Hunt. To find a Starly in the Paldea region, make sure to leave Mesagoza via the West Gate. This means going west and beginning the quest toward the Cortondo Gym.

Starly can be found in between the West Gate entrance/exit and the South Province (Area Two). A number of other Pokemon, like Hoppip, Mareep, and Happiny, can also be found in this area. Here’s a look at the map, for reference:
