Yanmega (Japanese: メガヤンマ Megayanma) is a dual-type Bug/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Yanma when leveled up while knowing Ancient Power.

Contents

Biology

Yanmega is a large, dark green dragonfly Pokémon. Its large eyes are red with black lines that make a sideways "T" shape in each one. It has two large, white fangs or mandibles next to its small mouth. Its immense jaw power allows it to bite apart foes while flying by at high speed. Each of Yanmega's segments have a red spot on them, while the last tail segment has a black triangular plate. It has two similar plates on the back of its thorax and a third on its head. Yanmega has six black thin legs. It has four white, oval wings with red tips, and there are two smaller white wings on the end of its tail. Yanmega can create shock waves by beating its wings. These shock waves are so powerful, they may inflict critical injuries on the foe. These wings are powerful enough to carry an adult human. Yanmega is very rare in the wild, though it can be found in wooded and swampy areas. It has very strong jaw power and bites apart its prey's heads while flying at high speed.

Major appearances

Jessie's Yanmega

Jessie has a female Yanmega that debuted in The Thief That Keeps on Thieving!, which also served as the species' main series debut. After catching her as a Yanma, Jessie used her in a battle against Ash and his friends, where she evolved into Yanmega in the same episode. Yanmega was then used in several Pokémon Contests before Jessie left her at the Team Rocket HQ when she headed to Unova, so she would not attract attention by using a Pokémon foreign to the region.

Other

Starting in A Slippery Encounter!, multiple Yanmega served as Florges's minions. They were ordered to attack Ash's Goodra's homeland and its friends. They have since made further appearances in Pokémon the Series: XY.

Minor appearances

Trivia

  • Despite having significantly higher Special Attack than Attack, Yanmega gives out 2 Attack effort values when defeated.
  • Two generations after Yanmega's debut, Mega Evolution was introduced. Pokémon that Mega Evolve have the word "mega" in front of their names, similar to Yanmega's name in Japan.

Origin

Yanmega is, as its name suggests, based on the Meganeura monyi, a particularly large, prehistoric species related to dragonflies and damselflies. Its species name suggests it is based on a green darner. Its dulled green color, robust body shape, and ability to transport humans may be inspired by certain military helicopters.

Name origin

Yanmega and Megayanma are a combination of 蜻蜓 yanma (large dragonfly) and Meganeura (a genus that is a member of an order commonly referred to as "griffinflies", gigantic prehistoric relatives of modern dragonflies/damselflies). Megayanma may also literally be "mega yanma".
