Burmy (Japanese: ミノムッチ Minomutchi) is a Bug-type Pokémon.

Burmy's evolutions are gender dependent: female Burmy evolve into Wormadam and male Burmy evolve into Mothim, both starting at level 20.

It changes its cloak based on the location where it last battled.

  • It will be the Plant Cloak if it last battled outside or in tall grass.
  • It will be the Sandy Cloak if it last battled in a cave, on a beach, or faced a Pokémon from a Honey tree.
  • It will be the Trash Cloak if it last battled in a building.

In the wild it is always the Plant Cloak variation. The cloak only affects its form upon evolution into Wormadam; there is otherwise no effect on gameplay.

Biology

Physiology

Burmy without any cloak on as seen in the anime
Burmy without any Cloak on as seen in Pokémon Adventures

Burmy has a black segmented body with a coil-like appendage on the top its head. It has a beak-like mouth and yellow eyes. Burmy has six stubby legs (the first two pairs are black, while the back pair is yellow). Burmy's body is normally covered by a coat of leaves, sand, or pink building insulation.

Gender differences

A female Burmy evolves into a Wormadam while a male Burmy evolves into Mothim. There are no visual differences between male and female Burmy.

Special abilities

Even if it is born where there are no cocooning materials, it somehow always ends up with a cloak. If a Burmy is female, when it evolves the materials used to compose its cloak become a permanent fixture on its body, and give it varying types and movesets depending on which material was used.

Behavior

It usually hangs from trees, wearing a cloak made out of leaves and small twigs to protect itself from the cold, although its cloak will be thinner when the weather is hot. It will not hesitate to collect nearby materials to construct a new cloak if the old one breaks or falls off.

Habitat

Like most Bug-type Pokémon, it is found mostly in forested areas, particularly trees. However, it'll make itself at home in rocky places or even in urban environments if it gets the opportunity.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

It probably feeds on the tree sap that it camouflages in. This makes it easy to attract with Honey.

Major appearances

Cheryl's Burmy

Burmy also starred in Some Enchanted Sweetening!, the episode Cheryl made her debut. She caught a wild Burmy that was lured to the Honey she put on a tree. After battles with Team Rocket, the Burmy evolved into a Mothim.

Other

Burmy made its debut appearance in Two Degrees of Separation! where Dawn tried and failed to catch one.

Minor appearances

A group of Burmy also appeared in The Rise of Darkrai.

Trivia

  • Burmy and Wormadam share the same species name with Pineco and Forretress. They are all known as Bagworm Pokémon.
  • Burmy's coat does not change if leveled up with an Exp. Share, making this a viable option for keeping a wanted cloak to evolution.
  • Burmy's evolutionary family is one of the most complex, with two factors deciding its evolutionary event: its gender and its appearance.
  • It is unknown how Burmy changes cloaks, since it is not shown in the anime. It is seen putting back on a cloak that fell off, however.
  • Burmy is the only Pokémon that has a base stat total of 224.
  • Although Burmy have been confirmed to have feet, they do not have a footprint, likely due to their feet being concealed by their cloak.
  • Although seen in the anime and Pokémon Adventures, Burmy does not have a cloakless form in the games, and as such, a Burmy hatched from an egg will be born wearing a cloak.

Origin

Burmy is based on a bagworm pupa, which will metamorphose into a moth if male, or remain a pupa-like creature if female.

Name origin

Burmy may be a combination of bag and worm.

Minomutchi may be based on 蓑虫 minomushi (bagworm).
