Burmy (Japanese: ミノムッチ Minomutchi) is a Template:Type2 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, the Sandy Cloak if it last battled in a cave or on a beach, and the Trash Cloak if it last battled in a building. In the wild it is always the Plant Cloak variation. Its cloak only affects what its second type will be if it evolves into Wormadam; it otherwise does not affect gameplay.

Biology

Physiology

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

Behavior

It usually hangs from trees, wearing a cloak made out of leaves and small twigs to protect itself from the cold. 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-types, 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.

In the anime

File:Burmy-anime.jpg
Burmy in the anime

Burmy has had cameos in the Japanese opening Together and in Two Degrees of Separation where Dawn tried and failed to catch one.

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.

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

Trivia

  • Burmy is one of four Pokémon whose evolution is based on gender (the other three being Combee into Vespiquen, Kirlia into Gallade, and Snorunt into Froslass). However, both of its genders have a specific evolution linked to them, unlike the other three.
  • Burmy and Wormadam share the same species name with Pineco and Forretress. They are all known as Bagworm Pokémon. Coincidentally, they also share types, if Wormadam is in her Trash Cloak.
  • Along with Wurmple and Clamperl, it is one of the only Pokémon whose multiple evolutionary paths are all Pokémon of the same generation as it is.
  • 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.
  • In Two Degrees of Separation! Burmy was shown temporarily without its cloak.
  • Burmy's evolutionary family is one of the most complex, with two factors deciding its evolutionary event: its gender and its appearance.
  • If Wormadam's three forms are considered different Pokémon (internally, by the games, they are considered to be), Burmy is one of three Pokémon able to evolve into more than two species, the others being Eevee and Tyrogue.

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's name may be a combinaton of "bag" and "wormy". Burmy's Japanese name may be based on 蓑虫 minomushi, the Japanese name for the bagworm.

In other languages

  • German: Burmy
  • French: Cheniti - From chenille (caterpillar) and petit (small).
  • Korean: 도롱충이 Dorongchung'i
