Yanmega (メガヤンマ) is the 184th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Bug/Flying Type, and is known as the Ogre Darner Pokémon.

Yanmega can use one of two Abilities: Speed Boost, which increases its Speed by one stage for each full turn that it is in battle; or Tinted Lens, which doubles the power of moves that the target of said moves would otherwise resist. A third Ability is available to Yanmega from the Dream World, the Frisk Ability. This Ability reveals the opposing Pokémon's Hold Item at the start of a battle if an opposing Pokémon is using a Hold Item.

Yanma can evolve into Yanmega if it Levels Up with Ancientpower in its moveset.

Yanmega is in the Bug Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Yanmega One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Yanmega is a part of the Borderline 2 (BL2) tier of competitive battling. With two great abilities in Speed Boost and Tinted Lens, Yanmega can act as either a cleaner or a wallbreaker depending on which ability it chooses. It has a strong base 116 Special Attack and a good 95 base Speed that can be further bolstered with Speed Boost. Yanmega's best set is its Choice Specs Tinted Lens wallbreaker set that can deal heavy damage with its STAB attacks while blasting through Bug and Flying resists. A Speed Boost Life Orb set is also an option that allows for Yanmega to get progressively faster and wreak havoc on weakened teams. However, Yanmega is not very bulky and suffers from a bad defensive typing that leaves it x4 weak to Stealth Rock.
