Yanma is a Bug/Flying-type Pokémon that evolves into Yanmega via knowing Ancient Power.


Yanma is a red dragonfly-like 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 hunts insects for food, using its eyesight to spot and its flight capabilities to pursue prey.


Yanma is often found in wooded and swampy areas.


Yanma is territorial, flying around to guard its territory.


Yanma is a skillful flier, able to make sudden stops, turn in midair and hover in place by flapping its wings at a high speed.

Yanma can generate shock waves capable of breaking glass by flapping its wings very fast.
