Burmy (Japanese: ミノムッチ Minomucchi) is a Bug-Type Pokémon introduced in the Generation IV.

Biology

Physiology

Its cloak is based on what location it most recently battled in. If it battled in a grassy area, it will have the grass cloak. If it battled at a beach or in a cave, it will have the sandy cloak. If it fought in a building, it will have the trash cloak. Once a (female) Burmy evolves into Wormadam, its cloak becomes part of its skin, and decides the Wormadam's second type.

Behavior

If they have their cloak damaged during a battle, they will apply nigh materials to immediately create a new one.

Evolution

Burmy can evolve into either Mothim (male) or Wormadam (female) once it reaches level 20.
