Eons ago, flies were the size of Volkswagons... or something. Well, when Yanma learns AncientPower, it grows to a similarly vehicular size and improves greatly in every regard. Most impressive is its Speed Boost move, previously the sole domain of locust Pokémon, Ninjask, which makes it faster every turn. Yanmega learns a number of powerful moves, including a powerful new Bug-type move, Bug Buzz.
