Shining Pearl If its cloak is broken in battle, it quickly remakes the cloak with materials nearby.
Legends: Arceus If its cloak is even slightly damaged, Burmy will immediately repair it with whatever is close at hand. The Pokémon within the cloak is scrawny and vulnerable to the cold.

Sandy Cloak

Legends: Arceus It creates a cloak by weaving together sand, mud, and silk it has spat out. This earthen cloak is ruined by wind and rain, so the Pokémon hides away in caves and other such places.

Trash Cloak

Legends: Arceus When confronted by a lack of other materials, Burmy will create its cloak using dust and refuse. The cloak seems to be more comfortable than one would think.
