Genshin Impact is a game that doesn't shy away from teasing characters that will be released in the future. Yaoyao is an interesting case because she was teased early on. However, Yaoyao is still pending release and remains a mystery to many gamers.
Yaoyao is a character from Liyue who has dendro vision. She works with both Xiangling and Ganyu, who both mention her in their voice lines. She's a young character, who seems to be around the same age as Klee, and so far she doesn't seem to be a follower or a zombie like Qiqi.

Her official weapon has yet to be revealed, but some lore suggests she learned how to fight from Madam Ping. This can easily mean that she could be another polearm user.
When will the Yaoyao Banner be released?
Yaoyao will likely be released right before the Sumeru release and around the Chasms release. No dendro characters have been released in the game so far, with only Baizhu making an official appearance. Baizhu and Yaoyao could be released under the same banner, with one being a five-star character and the other a four-star. The first version that Yaoyao should now release is version 2.6.
