Burmy Forms

  • Plant Burmy
  • Sandy Burmy
  • Trash Burmy

Forms only affect appearance, although they become permanent upon evolution. Wild and newly-hatched Burmy are always in a Plant Cloak. Burmy's cloak changes to match the terrain after a battle it participated in: Plant Cloak by default; Sandy Cloak in sandy or rocky areas, such as beaches, caves, and trails; and Trash Cloak in buildings.
