Burmy (Japanese: ミノムッチ Minomutchi) is a Template:Type2 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 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, 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 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.

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 Burmy and Wormadam are in their 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 the wanted cloak to evolution.

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. Its French name, Cheniti, comes from chenille.
