Burgh contemplating
Burgh was first shown wrapped up in his green poncho and hanging on a rope to live like a forest Pokémon. Ash and Iris see this and were obviously surprised, before he unraveled and told them not to make too much noise. Burgh is also a fashion designing genius prodigy, but was having a hard time coming up with new ideas, so he said he goes to the forest to find inspiration. He also teaches Ash and Iris about studying Pokémon and getting to know them before capturing them. After seeing Sewaddle and Ash's bonding in front of the sunset, he gets his latest inspiration and heads back to his hometown to create new designs and waits for Ash to arrive and challenge him.

  • In the games, Burgh's gym resembles a beehive while Bugsy's gym resembles a Forest and a spiderweb.

  • Unlike the Anime, where his Gym has just an indoor forest, the in game Gym has several of Burgh's paintings stuck to the walls with honey.
