Name

I always thought Yanmega/Megayanma was Yanma (obvious) and Mega, as in great, large, better, not this odd prehistoric insect. Couldn't Mega be the source? ---Sk8torchic

  • Considering it evolves by knowing Ancient Power like Piloswine which also evolves into a pokemon that seems to be based off of an extinct animal, chances are it is based off the prehistoric insect.--Shinin 11:39, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Naming Issue

Shouldn't there be a mention of the renaming from Megayanma to Yanmega on this page, it's perfect for trivial.

Ogre Darner Pokémon

What the heck does this mean?! --i herd u liek Treakos? 21:10, 30 January 2010 (UTC) Kimori-Hinoarashi

Darner is apparently some sort of insect species according to Wiktionary and an ogre is something ugly...so it's probably saying that its an ugly bug to put it simply, I guess...--Psyライダー 21:17, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
Darn those stupid ogres! Should this go into the name origin section? --i herd u liek Treakos? 21:36, 1 February 2010 (UTC) Kimori-Hinoarashi

EVs

Could you please decide what kind of EV points does Yanmega give to your Pokémon? You say "2 special attack points", but every other Pokédex you have a link to states "2 attack points".... Piotr mil 11:43, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Lol, we do that sometimes. It's ATK. —darklordtrom 11:47, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
Well, that was a quick one [insert Speedboost joke here]. Piotr mil 11:56, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Possible Trivia

Despite the fact that the HG pokedex entry explicitly says that it can carry a person in flight, it can't learn fly. However, considering the inconsistencies in what can and can't learn fly, I'm not sure if this is notable enough to be trivia? Harumei (talk) 14:17, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
