'''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”"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.

The Mirage System is capable of creating virtually any Pokémon assuming data on those Pokémon has been acquired. These Pokémon essentially have no weaknesses and are invulnerable to attacks from normal Pokémon. They are able to know and use any move, even ones they would naturally be unable to learn. This is comparable to a Pokémon in the [[main series]] games which is [[cheating|hacked]], such as a {{p|Mewtwo}} with {{m|Quick Attack}}, a {{p|Beautifly}} with {{m|Aeroblast}}, or a {{p|Walrein}} with {{m|Meteor Mash}}. Pokémon that were created during the events in The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon include {{p|Machoke}}, {{p|Machamp}}, {{p|Magnemite}}, {{p|Omastar}}, {{p|Kabutops}}, two {{p|Aerodactyl}}, {{p|Articuno}}, {{p|Zapdos}}, Mewtwo, {{p|Mew}}, {{p|Ursaring}}, {{p|Houndoom}}, {{p|Entei}}, {{p|Mightyena}}, {{p|Aggron}}, {{p|Armaldo}}, and {{p|Absol}}.
Although the main area that the Mirage Pokémon can travel is held inside Dr. Yung’sYung's laboratory, it can be expanded through the use of holographic generators that are launched from the laboratory in a fashion similar to that of missiles. This expanded Mirage System allows the Mirage Pokémon to travel outside the laboratory and battle in different environments. The extent of this expanded area is unlimited.
