    • At 86, this is the lowest instance of a base stat that is the highest within its type.
  • Despite having significantly higher Special Attack than Attack, Yanmega gives out 2 Attack effort values when defeated.

Origin

It is, as its name suggests, based on the Meganeura monyi, a particularly large, prehistoric species of dragonflies. Its species name suggests it's based on a Green Darner.

Name origin

Yanmega and Megayanma are a combination of 蜻蜓 yanma (large dragonfly) and Meganeura (a genus of gigantic prehistoric dragonflies). It may also be a play at mega yanma.
