How Can I Get Mothim?

Mothim is an evolved form of a male version of Burmy, Unlike the female version of Burmy the male version only evolves into Mothim (No Variations) in the end.

On the other hand, if you evolve a female Burmy of any type it evolves into the respective color and type Wormadam.

If a player evolves a shiny male Burmy they will get a shiny male Mothim. That means female Mothim doesn’t exist, nor the variants. Mothim is a bug and flying type Pokemon, unlike its Burmy form which is only a bug-type Pokemon only.

How do I know which form my Burmy has?

You can easily identify the form of your Burmy by its current cloak appearance. If Burmy is in a grassy area, it will have the Plant Cloak. Similarly, if it’s in a desert terrain or near trash, you’ll find the Sandy or Trash Cloak, respectively.

Can Burmy change its form in the game?

No, Burmy cannot change its form once caught. Its form is set at the location where it is encountered and remains so until evolved.

Can I influence Burmy’s form at evolution?

Choices Burmy makes in its environment trickle down to you through the evolution process. There is no direct way to influence the form changes during evolution beyond capturing Burmy in different areas for each cloak variety.

Are certain forms more powerful than others?

Each form has its own strengths and weaknesses due to their distinct typings. The decision between which form is more powerful depends on the context and strategy of your battles. Experiment with each one in combat to discover their unique benefits.

What happens if I transfer or trade my Burmy?

If you transfer or trade your Burmy, the recipient will receive it in the same form it was in before the transaction. With trading, you could potentially receive a Burmy in a different form from the one you traded, depending on where the other player encountered it.
