Can’t find any pest. Even the 6 basals that formed from this Nepenthes burkei x reinwardtiana.

From the looks of the leaves, I would be leaning towards sunburn to to water droplets on the leaves. If that is not possible, I'd hit it with a fungicide.

Yes, I have. The thing is the leaves seem to be deformed, compared to the other specimens of this cross that I have seen. I contacted the seller. I’ve had it for over a year and have tried numerous things, including keeping it in more shade, captain, Bayer 3 in 1, and thiomyl…. No change. New leaves always deformed and even the basal shoots. This thing makes crazy basals. Anyway, haven’t seen a single pitcher on it, so the thing is not happy that is for sure. I even took it out of the media, changed ratios of the mixture to make it even more airy, and soaked the whole thing in fungicide (roots and all) for 30 mins. Repotted it, and isolated it.
Hope it clears up. got the basals in isolation also. Same fungicide bath for them.
