Trivia

  • Yanmega and its pre-evolution, Yanma, are the only Pokémon whose names begin with the letter Y.
  • Yanmega has the highest base Special Attack stat, as well as the highest base stat total, of any Template:Type2 Pokémon.
  • Yanmega is the largest Bug-type Pokémon.
  • Yanmega is the last Bug-type Pokémon in National Pokédex order as of Generation IV.
  • In Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, Yanmega is said to spit gooey silk. However, it's unable to learn String Shot naturally.
  • Its Platinum Pokédex entry suggests that it uses physical moves, however, its Special Attack stat is higher than its Attack stat.
  • Although its Pokédex entry in HeartGold says it is able to easily carry an adult in flight, Yanmega is unable to learn the move Fly.
  • Yanmega and Yanma share the same Speed base stat.
  • Yanmega and its pre-evolution, Yanma, are the only pokemon that can learn all three versions of Ancient Power.

Origin

It is, as its name suggests, based on the Meganeura monyi, a particularly large, prehistoric species of dragonflies. It is also similar to Meganula / Megaguirus (メガギラス), a prehistoric dragonfly-like Kaiju.

Name origin

Yanmega's name is a combination of 蜻蜓 yanma, large dragonfly in Japanese, and Meganeura, a species of gigantic prehistoric dragonfly. Its Japanese name means the same thing, albeit in reverse. However, it could just simply be a combination of mega, meaning large, and yanma.
