Burmy is unique since it has different formes you can capture depending on the area it is found in, these being its; Plant Cloak, Sandy Cloak, and Trash Cloak. The formes have different visual appearances, but they also have a different secondary type when evolving into Wormadam. It should also be noted that only female Burmy can evolve into Wormadam; evolving a male Burmy will result in a normal Mothim- Burmy evolves once reaching level 20. To encounter a Burmy, you will need to shake a "Shaking Tree," which can be found commonly throughout the region in different areas. Below, we will list the other formes of Burmy and common locations where you might encounter them.
