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

Biology

Physiology

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 has 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.

Behavior

In modern times, these Pokémon make their homes in damp woodlands and swamps. They are brutal attackers, equipped with myriad abilities to take down foes (and often violently so). For example, they can rapidly beat their wings to create shock waves strong enough to dislodge trees; such blasts can easily cause internal injuries in surrounding life.

They are also skilled at using their powerful jaws to tear apart foes in mid-flight. In battle, these tactics manifest as moves like Sonic Boom and Bug Bite. Yanmega are strong enough to carry adult humans into the air. They use the wings on their tails to keep balanced while flying. Yanmega are extraordinarily swift fliers, capable of nearing the speed of sound when unburdened. They are a territorial species and will defend their homes viciously when threatened.

Natural Abilities

Yanmega are strong enough to carry adult humans into the air. They use the wings on their tails to keep balanced while flying. Yanmega are also extraordinarily swift fliers, capable of nearing the speed of sound when unburdened.

Evolution

Yanmega is the evolved form of Yanma. Yanma can be evolved into Yanmega as soon as it learns the move Ancient Power or levels up while knowing the move.

Trivia

  • Yanmega and its pre-evolution are one of only a few insect-based Pokémon to have six legs like real insects.

Origin

Yanmega is based on a dragonfly, more specifically a green darner, with elements of Meganeura (a genus of extinct giant dragonflies, hence why Yanma can only evolve if it knows Ancient Power). The extra wings on its tail, combined with its regular wings, give it the appearance of a helicopter, as dragonflies, like helicopters, can hover, fly backwards and sideways, and turn in midair.

Etymology

Yanmega and Megayanma come from 蜻蜓 (yanma, darner dragonfly), mega (big, may also mean "million"), Meganeura, and possibly omega.
