History

Yung as the Mirage Master

Dr. Yung invites Ash and his friends, as well as Professor Oak, to visit him at his castle so he can demonstrate his Mirage System to them. He later challenges Ash and Misty to battle with him using a Mirage Aggron his system had generated. Misty eagerly accepts his challenge and uses her Staryu, but she is easily defeated when Aggron demonstrates one of the Mirage System's features - the ability to use any attack, in this case Bullet Seed. Ash challenges him next with Pikachu, but before the battle can begin, the Mirage Master (Japanese: ミスター・ミラージュ Mr. Mirage) captures both Dr. Yung and Professor Oak by commandeering the system.

While Ash and his friends attempt to rescue them, Mirage Master threatens Oak with the intent of gaining the access password to his laboratory database. Revealing his insanity, he speaks of his contempt for the flaws inherent in every Pokémon, and of his desire to create a Pokémon free of these flaws. A Mirage Mew appears to Professor Oak, and the Mirage Master snaps at the sight of it, viciously attacking it with his Mirage Magnemite and declaring it to be a "flawed specimen".

Oak initially resists the threats and refuses to give the password. As a backup plan, Mirage Master uses some of his Mirage Pokémon to capture Pikachu after ambushing it. He then straps it to a table and uses a special machine to scan its memories for data, causing it great pain. This finally breaks Oak's resolve, and he surrenders the password, "REDGREEN." Using a combination of his new access to Oak's laboratory database and his ability to hack the servers of Pokémon Centers worldwide, Mirage Master begins forming his perfect Pokémon.

Yung unmasked

When Ash, and later Misty and May, arrive to confront him, Mirage Master completes the experiment, creating a Mirage Mewtwo. He demonstrates its power by immediately destroying all of the other Mirage Pokémon. He then attempts to kill Oak, who defends himself with a Dragonite. Oak urges the group to escape, becoming resigned to the fact that they cannot save Yung, but Mirage Master has another trick up his sleeve - he deploys 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 summons a Mirage Entei, Mirage Articuno and Mirage Zapdos.

Feeling confident in his impending victory, the Mirage Master declares his Mirage Mewtwo to be the result of "many years of hard work". This, along with his previous tangent about Mirage Mew being a "flawed specimen", allows Professor Oak to unmask the Mirage Master, revealing him to actually be Dr. Yung. It is revealed that Yung had been a student at the Pokémon Institute when he invented the Mirage System, but because his research was considered cruel and disrespectful to Pokémon, he was expelled from the Institute, thus leaving him bitter and hungry for revenge. He battles against the group using Mewtwo and easily takes the upper hand, but with some timely help from the "flawed" Mirage Mew, Pikachu is able to defeat Mewtwo using Volt Tackle, destroying the Mirage System as a result.

After being defeated, he escapes into his burning lab. Oak tries to pursue him, but falling iron blocks the entrance, and Yung is never seen again.

Character

Dr. Yung first appears to be a polite and intelligent scientist. He invented the Mirage Pokémon system, a project he spent many years on, as Professor Oak acknowledges. He 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 repeatedly shown to think nothing of casually attempting to kill both humans and Pokémon.

Mirage Mewtwo
Mirage Mewtwo
Mirage Mewtwo is the pinnacle of Dr. Yung's work, the "perfect Pokémon" created from data that had been stolen from countless databases around the world. As the ultimate Mirage Pokémon, it is capable of using any move, even morphing parts of its body into other Pokémon to do so. Ash and his friends try to stop it with Ash using Pikachu, Oak using Dragonite, Misty using Gyarados, and May using Combusken. However, Mewtwo easily defeats the latter three, leaving Ash and Pikachu to take care of it and Dr. Yung on their own. When the Mirage Mew sacrifices itself to restrain Mewtwo, Pikachu is able to defeat the Mirage Mewtwo (and Mew as well), thus destroying the Mirage System.

Mewtwo's used moves are Shadow Ball, Flamethrower*, Solar Beam*, Hyper Beam*, Hydro Pump*, Bullet Seed*, Thunderbolt, Psybeam*, Ice Beam, Iron Tail, Quick Attack* and Mega Punch.

Mirage Mew
Mirage Mew
This Mirage Mew, unlike the rest of Dr. Yung's Mirage Pokémon, exhibits its own free will instead of mindlessly obeying its programming; this leads Professor Oak to speculate that it has a soul, while Dr. Yung disregards it as a "flawed specimen" for the same reason. It follows Ash and his friends throughout the castle and protects them from Mirage Mewtwo's attacks. At the climax, Mew sacrifices itself to restrain Mewtwo, allowing Pikachu to defeat it with Volt Tackle and destroy the Mirage 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.
