Yanma is a Bug & Flying Pokémon. It is vulnerable to Rock, Flying, Fire, Electric and Ice moves. Yanma's strongest moveset is Wing Attack & Aerial Ace and it has a Max CP of 1,470. Yanma evolves into Yanmega.
"Yanma is capable of seeing 360 degrees without having to move its eyes. It is a great flier that is adept at making sudden stops and turning midair. This Pokémon uses its flying ability to quickly chase down targeted prey."
Wing Attack and Quick Attack have identical stats, but the former benefits from STAB.
All of Yanma's charge moves cost the same 45 energy, which means it doesn't need to shield-bait. Ancient Power and Silver Wind have identical stats for PvP, both offering different type coverage, and both also have the small chance to increase Yanma's stats. However the nerf following the April 2020 rebalance have heavily affected these two moves. Aerial Ace benefits from STAB to offer greater damage output, but is still unimpressive.
Yanma isn't a good candidate for PvP, with a relatively poor defensive stat resulting in less bulk and a Bug/Flying typing which gives more weaknesses than resistances. To make matters worse, Yanma isn't equipped with the best moveset either, which is also unfortunate. A loss against Kantonian Exeggutor (Confusion) which from a typing standpoint shouldn't happen, lowers the overall expectations of Yanma. Overall a rather poor choice considering that Yanma needs to be maxed out to level 40 to fully reach its potential; perhaps consider other Pokemon instead.
Yanma's max CP is 1470 which is not enough for Ultra League.
