'''Mirage Pokémon''' (Japanese: '''ミラージュポケモン''') are {{wp|holographic}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}, first seen in the anime special ''[[The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon]]''. They were created by [[Dr. Yung]], the Pokémon scientist who invented the Pokémon Mirage System, a machine that generates Pokémon holograms. The Mirage System was initially created for the purpose of creating a new species of “perfect” Pokémon. It was later used by Dr. Yung in an attempt to get revenge on the members of the Pokémon Institute who expelled him after he presented them with the Mirage System, claiming that it was a cruel and disrespectful way to treat Pokémon.

*{{p|Mew}} was the only holographic [[Pokémon]] who had a heart and who wasn't able to be controlled.
*"Mirage Pokémon" also refers to [[legendary Pokémon]] and {{p|Mew}} in particular, although this is mainly a coincidence. In Japanese, the term used for legendary Pokémon is '''まぼろしの ポケモン''' ''illusory Pokémon'', using the Japanese word ''"maboroshi"''; meanwhile, Yung's mirages are '''ミラージュポケモン''' ''mirage Pokémon'', which uses the English word "mirage."
*Even though the Mirage Pokémon are often described as holograms, both they and their attacks are made of actual physical {{wp|matter}} rather than light.
