Dr. Yung (Japanese: ドクター・ユング Dr. Yung) is a scientist from the special The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon.

Character

201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201

Yung is shown to have a combination of great intellect and battling skill, but still has a sort of mysterious air about himself. However, it is later shown that Yung is corrupt and a sociopath. He is generally incapable of feeling genuine emotion and is shown to be megalomaniacal, power-hungry, delusional, embittered, cruel, heartless, and cynical.

In his true persona, he is one of the few characters in the entire series to be depicted as purely and irredeemably evil. He has little concern for life, whether natural or artificial, and is seen to think nothing of casually attempting to kill both humans and Pokémon repeatedly.

History

Dr. Yung invented the Mirage Pokémon system. This appears to be a project he spent many years on, as Professor Oak acknowledges.

He challenges Ash and his friends to battle with him using a Mirage Aggron his system has generated. Misty eagerly accepts his challenge and uses her Staryu, but she lost easily when the Aggron showed off one of Yung's system's features - the ability to use any attack, in this case Bullet Seed. Ash challenged him next with Pikachu, but before the battle could begin, the Mirage Master (Japanese: ミスター・ミラージュ Mr. Mirage) captured both Yung and Oak by commandeering the system.

As the Mirage Master

While Ash and his friends attempted to mount a rescue mission, Mirage Master tortured Oak with the intent of gaining the access password to Oak's laboratory database. Revealing his insanity to the protagonists, he spoke of his contempt for the flaws inherent in every Pokémon and of his desire to create a Pokémon free of these flaws. He is especially enraged when a Mirage Mew appears, which he declared a 'flawed specimen.'

Oak initially resisted the torture and refused to give the password. As a backup plan, Mirage Master used some of his Mirage Pokémon to capture Pikachu after ambushing it. He then strapped it to a table and used a special machine to scan its memories for data, causing it great pain. This finally broke Oak's resolve, and he surrendered the password, "REDGREEN." Using a combination of his new access to Oak's laboratory's database and his ability to hack the servers of Pokémon Centers worldwide, Mirage Master began forming his perfect Pokémon.

When Ash, and later Misty and May arrived to confront him, Mirage Master completed the experiment, creating a Mirage Mewtwo. He demonstrated its power by instantly defeating all of the other Mirage Pokémon, then he attempted to kill Oak, who had to defend himself with a Dragonite. Oak urged the group to escape, becoming resigned to the fact that they could not save Yung, but Mirage Master had another trick up his sleeve - he deployed missiles to create a much larger field for the Mirage Pokémon to move around in, allowing him to unleash his Mirage Mewtwo on the world. To aid in this endeavor he also summoned a Mirage Entei, Mirage Articuno and Mirage Zapdos.

Yung unmasked

Later, after the Mirage Master declared his Mirage Mewtwo to be the result of "many years of hard work", Professor Oak successfully unmasked him to actually be Dr. Yung. It was revealed that Yung had been a student at the Pokémon Institute when he invented the Mirage System, but he was expelled because his research was considered cruel, thus leaving him bitter and hungry for revenge. He battled against the group using Mewtwo and easily took the upper hand, but with some timely help from the Mirage Mew that Yung had declared a "flawed specimen", Ash's Pikachu was able to defeat it using Volt Tackle.

After being defeated, he escaped into his burning lab. Oak tried to pursue him, but falling iron blocked the entrance, and Yung was never seen again.

Mirage Mew
Mirage Mew
The Mirage Mew, unlike most of the Mirage Master's Pokémon, chose not to do evil deeds. The Mirage Master classifies it as a flawed specimen due to the fact that it exhibits a soul instead of mindlessly following commands in its programming. It followed Ash and his friends throughout the castle and protected them from Mewtwo's attacks. It, like other Mirage Pokémon, got destroyed after Pikachu's Volt Tackle defeated Mewtwo and destroyed the system.

Mew's only known move used was Protect.

Trivia

  • Considering the titles (Dr. Yung and Mr. Mirage) he was given in Japanese, he may have been a play on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. His name, and duality, might also be a reference to Carl Jung.
