Burmy is a Bug-type Pokémon that evolves at level 20. Male Burmy will evolve into Mothim, while female Burmy will evolve into Wormadam.

To shelter itself from cold, wintry winds, it covers itself with a cloak made of twigs and leaves.

Forms

Burmy has three different forms:

If Burmy participates in a battle, it will change its form depending on the ground that the battle took place on.

Block/Material Form
Grass, Wood, any plants Burmy.pngPlant
Dirt, Sand, Clay, Stone Burmy-Sandy.pngSandy
Other Burmy-Trash.pngTrash

Burmy's form only changes its appearance; it has no effect in battle. However, if Burmy evolves into Wormadam, its form will become permanent and affect Wormadam's type, movepool, and stats. Burmy's form does not make a difference if it evolves into Mothim.
