Yanma (Japanese: ヤンヤンマ Yanyanma) is a dual-type Bug/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves into Yanmega when leveled up while knowing Ancient Power.

Biology

Yanma is a large, red insectoid Pokémon that resembles a dragonfly. Compared to its long, thin abdomen, its thorax is short and wide. It has three pairs of gray two-toed legs and two pairs of wings with red bands on them. The see through wings are described as frail and thin. A bright green mask marking covers most of its face, and it has two spikes on top of its head. Its blue eyes can see all around its body at 360 degrees without even moving its head. This allows Yamma to have a high evasiveness. The end of Yanma's tail has two flat extensions from the sides and two gray spikes in the center.

Yanma is a skillful flier. It can make sudden stops, turn in midair and hover in place by flapping its wings at a high speed. Yamma's eyes ensure the prey will not escape its sight, even when behind. It can also generate shock waves capable of breaking glass or even launching a house skyward by flapping its wings very fast. Yanma is often found in wooded and swampy areas. It hunts insects for food, using its eyesight to spot and its flight abilities to pursue prey. Yanma is also territorial, flitting around to guard its territory.

Jessie's Yanma

In The Thief That Keeps on Thieving!, Tyler was about to catch a Yanma that his Piplup had weakened when the Team Rocket trio showed up and Jessie caught her instead. They sent her to Giovanni; however, Team Rocket already had obtained a large number of Yanma, and so Giovanni returned her to them. When Jessie used Yanma in battle, she used Ancient Power and evolved into a Yanmega.

Yanma debuted in Wings n' Things, under the ownership of Zachary Evans.

Trivia

Origin

Yanma seems to be based on a dragonfly, possibly the banded darter. Because of its size and weight, it might have been inspired by prehistoric ancestors to modern dragonflies and damselflies in the Meganeura genus, commonly referred to as "griffinflies". This is further supported by its evolution, Yanmega, which is much more closely linked to ancient dragonflies, and whose offspring did not have a larval stage, instead hatching directly into a smaller version of their adult phase, as Yanma is a fully formed dragonfly. This connection is further referenced by its evolution method.

Name origin

Yanma and Yanyanma derive from 蜻蜓 yanma (large dragonfly).
