Yanma (Japanese: ヤンヤンマ Yanyanma) is a dual-type Bug/Flying Pokémon.

It evolves into Yanmega when leveled up while knowing Ancient Power.

Biology

Yanma is a large, red dragonfly Pokémon. Compared to its long, thin abdomen, its thorax is short and wide. It has three pairs of two-toed legs and two pairs of wings with red bands on them. A bright green mask marking covers most of its face, and it has two spikes on top of its head. Its blue eyes can see all around its body allowing it to have a high evasiveness. The end of Yanma's tail has two flat extensions from the sides and two gray spikes in the center.

Yanma is a skillful flier. It can make sudden stops, turn in midair and hover in place by flapping its wings at a high speed. It can also generate shock waves capable of breaking glass by flapping its wings very fast. Yanma is often found in wooded and swampy areas. It hunts insects for food, using its eyesight to spot and its flight abilities to pursue prey. Yanma is also territorial, flitting around to guard its territory.

In the anime

Yanma in the anime

Major appearances

Jessie's Yanma

In The Thief That Keeps on Thieving!, a rookie Trainer named Tyler was about to capture a Yanma that his Piplup had weakened, when Team Rocket showed up, and Jessie captured it instead. They sent it to Giovanni; however, Team Rocket already had obtained a large number of Yanma and so Giovanni returned it to them. When Jessie used Yanma in battle, it used AncientPower and evolved into a Yanmega. During this time, another weakened Yanma got away. A third Yanma appeared afterwards, and Tyler finally captured that one.

Other

Yanma first appeared in Wings n' Things. It was carelessly breaking glass in a town.

A Yanma appeared in All in a Day's Wurmple, under the ownership of Forrester Franklin.

Minor appearances

Yanma also made a cameo in Pikachu's PikaBoo, and another as one of the Pokémon to appear in Latios and Latias' garden in Pokémon Heroes. Multiple Yanma also appeared in the same movie where they flew over the Tour de Alto Mare competitors.

Multiple Yanma appeared in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew living in the Tree of Beginning. Also, one appeared in the opening of the movie.

A group of Yanma also appeared in The Rise of Darkrai.

Yanma also appeared in Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! Part One.

Multiple Yanma made a cameo in Arceus and the Jewel of Life.

Yanma appeared in Zoroark: Master of Illusions as a few of the many local Pokémon who lives in Crown City. Three of them took part in surrounding Zorua in the park along several other Pokémon to attack him, angry at Zorua for what Zoroark did to the city. Before a fight broke out, the Yanma, along with the other Pokémon, were calmed by Celebi.

Trivia

Origin

Yanma is based on a dragonfly, possibly the red-veined darter. Because of its size and weight, it might have been inspired by extinct giant dragonflies in the Meganeura genus.

Name origin

Yanma and Yanyanma derive from 蜻蜓 yanma (large dragonfly).
