Yanmega is quite the bad ass looking Bug/Flying type and is probably the BEST in that extremely large dual combo group due to his AMAZING Special Attack, the ever so incredible "Speed Boost" ability and the fact that it gets TWO incredible STABed moves to complement it in that of Bug Buzz and the potentially "Flinch" crazy Air Slash.
It is in the OU Tier of Diamond & Pearl as it's quite a solid Hypnosis user, it's other ability "Tinted Lens" (Which allows it to do 2x as much damage with it's attacks on a type that resists it) with a Choice Specs boost can be quite deadly and capable of 2HKOing most Pokes provided it has a MAX 252 Special Attack EVs. Usually it has a "Hidden Power" Ice to dismantle the many 4x weakness dragons such as Salamence, Garchomp and others. It's even known on the RARE occasion for setting up Substitutes & packing a surprise "Reversal" with a Leichi Berry Attack boost.
In the Pokemon D/P Anime, Jessie of Team Rocket ends up catching a Yanma and eventually it evolves to Yanmega as seen below.

Member's opinions on YanmegaEdit
- Resurgence believes this is the ULTIMATE Bug/Flying pokemon and that if anyone wants an amazingly fast hard hitting Psychic/Dark crippler, look no further then Yanmega.
- Sonic thinks Yanmega is a good Pokemon; as Yanma was one of his favorites of the Second Generation.
- Kiske thinks that it has a lot of good potential, but that is it.
- Chopstix says, "OH GOD, WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS? GOD IT'S HIDEOUS AND IT'S REALLY FAST."
- Rey thinks Yanmega is no fun at all.. not fun to use it or to go against it..
- Yanmega is the 2nd Bug/Flying type to be granted the ability "Speed Boost". The other is the infamous Baton Passing Ninjask.
- Ironically, Yanmega being a Dragonfly doesn't learn any Dragon moves.
