Burmy (Japanese: ミノムッチ Minomutchi) is a Bug-type Pokémon. It is available in Generation IV games. 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, 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, otherwise it 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 insulator.

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.
