PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Bug Bite or Wing Attack + Aerial Ace and Bug Buzz

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.

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. The nerf to Ancient Power following the April 2020 rebalance removes its viability. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 0 / 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: 0 / 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: 0 / 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.
