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.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Yanmega is more than capable of holding its own in the Under-Utilized and Over-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling thanks to having access to two abilities that are amongst the best in the game. Speed Boost will increase its Speed by one stage at the end of each turn in battle. This boost really helps in terms of outrunning opposing Pokémon with relative ease. Tinted Lens allows for hitting opponents that would otherwise resist its attacks for more damage than usual, and can be paired with Choice Specs for even more damage.

Once the opposing special walls and counters have been addressed, Yanmega makes for a powerful Special Sweeper that is quite capable of tearing through teams. One must be wary of Yanmega's crippling weakness to Stealth Rock when using it.
