PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Bug Bite should be paired with Bug Buzz to fulfill Yanmega's role as a Bug-type attacker. 

  • Wing Attack can pair well with Aerial Ace to fulfill a Flying-type role, but there are usually better options. 

  • Ancient Power doesn't have a use on Yanmega. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Wing Attack is superior to Bug Bite on defense. 

  • Bug Buzz has the highest base power and can deal a chunk of damage if undodged. 

  • Aerial Ace is more likely to be used before Yanmega faints. 

  • Ancient Power has a late damage window and is more easily dodged. 

PVE Overview

Yanmega looks a lot cooler and meaner after its evolution form Yanma, but unfortunately that's about all it has going for it. While it does compete with the top Bug-types in the game, it doesn't necessarily surpass them in performance. As a Flying-type, Yanmega got blessed with a double STAB Flying-type moveset, but is cursed with a lackluster Aerial Ace. Overall the dragonfly is quite good as a Bug-type attacker during Rainy weather, but Bug-types aren't really worth investing in.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Bug Bite + Ancient Power and Aerial Ace

Bug Bite and Wing Attack are very similar; the former sports the typical 3.0 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 3.0 EPT (Energy Per Turn), while the latter trades a slight 0.5 DPT loss for a bit more 0.5 EPT (less damage for more energy gain). While both fast moves are viable, the difference in typing and expected matchups can result in one being more preferable than the other. Ancient Power is almost always preferred as it offers coverage and ties with Aerial Ace for the lowest energy cost. Aerial Ace is chosen in this moveset to diversify Yanmega's coverage, though Bug Buzz isn't a terrible move if extra Bug-type damage is needed. 

Wing Attack + Ancient Power and Bug Buzz or Aerial Ace

A slight change up in the moveset, with different typings and a slightly faster energy gain, though Bug Buzz costs considerably more energy than Aerial Ace. Ancient Power is usually needed to bait shields if Bug Buzz is required to KO opponents weak to Bug-type attacks. Aerial Ace can be chosen instead if extra Flying-type damage is needed. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 1.5 / 5

Yanmega is a great choice as a Bug-type attacker in PvE, but unfortunately doesn't bug a lot of opponents in PvP. A relatively high ATK stat reduces its overall bulk, while its Bug/Flying typing gives it more vulnerabilities than resistances. Even though its Flying-type moveset could be of use in Great League, there's other competitors who can fulfill that role a lot better. Overall not too exciting for PvP, and while its name is mega cool, it'll mostly return mega losses. 

Ultra League: 1 / 5

Yanmega's typing isn't really relevant in Ultra League due to the sheer dominance of Giratina and abundance of Steel-types. Consider other Pokemon instead. 

Master League: 1 / 5

Yanmega can get wins against Grass-types and Groudon if the latter doesn't have Fire Blast. It's probably better to use Yanmega for PvE.
