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.
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.
- Yanma weighs exactly the same as the male player character in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. It shares this characteristic with Sudowoodo, Skuntank, Togekiss, and Fearow.
- Yanma shares the same base Speed stat with its evolved form, Yanmega.
- Yanma is the last Pokémon in Johto Pokédex order that has the same number that it has in the New Pokédex, due to its evolution and the evolutions of Aipom, Lickitung, Piloswine, and Tangela all being added to the Johto Pokédex.
