I just went on the Burmy page, and I saw all three together on the same picture, instead of having seperate forms, I could've sworn that at some point, Burmy had different forms, Like Burmy Leaf Cloak Grass-Bug, Sand Cloak Ground-Bug, and Trash Cloak Steel-Bug. Is this not the case, or has it changed throughout the games, if so, we don't have it on our Burmy Changes. Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question.(Also, I know Wormadam has the forms, so don't say I'm confusing Burmy with Wormadam.)

Yes, Burmy is a full bug type. It does have different forms and it depends on where it last battled

It changes its cloak based on the location where it last battled
It will be the Plant Cloak if it last battled outside or in tall grass, or it is encountered on a Honey Tree
It will be the Sandy Cloak if it last battled in a cave, or on a beach
It will be the Trash Cloak if it last battled in a building
In the wild, it is always in its Plant Cloak. The cloak only affects the form of Wormadam it evolves into, otherwise having no effect on gameplay

Wormadam is the one that has different types depending on the cloak

It has one of three different secondary types: Steel, Grass, or Ground, determined by its cloak. Its cloak is permanent and determined by the cloak that Burmy was in when it evolved


Thanks First Sinner.
