Wormadam changes

Pokédex entries

Plant Cloak

Diamond When BURMY evolved, its cloak became a part of this Pokémon’s body. The cloak is never shed.
Pearl Its appearance changes depending on where it evolved. The materials on hand become a part of its body.
Platinum When evolving, its body takes in surrounding materials. As a result, there are many body variations.
HeartGold
SoulSilver
It is said that a WORMADAM that evolves on a cold day will have a thicker cloak.
Black
White
Black 2
White 2
When evolving, its body takes in surrounding materials. As a result, there are many body variations.
X
Omega Ruby
Its appearance changes depending on where it evolved. The materials on hand become a part of its body.
Y
Alpha Sapphire
When Burmy evolved, its cloak became a part of this Pokémon’s body. The cloak is never shed.
Brilliant Diamond When Burmy evolves, its cloak becomes a part of its body. Wormadam’s cloak is never shed.
Shining Pearl Its appearance changes depending on where it evolved. The materials on hand become a part of its body.
Legends: Arceus The cloak—fashioned from plant matter—has merged with the Pokémon and is now part of the body, like fur or skin. I suspect this fusion is an effect of the energy involved in evolution.

Sandy Cloak

Legends: Arceus Its earthen skin is reasonably hard—it has no problem repelling a Starly’s pecking, at least.

Trash Cloak

Legends: Arceus Its body, composed of refuse, blends in to the scenery so much as to be inconspicuous. This seems to be the perfect way for the Pokémon to evade the detection of predators.
