When the Mirage Pokémon are not in use they can be "stored" in the mirage system until they are needed. This is similar to how real Pokémon are kept in Poké Balls. A trait that is unique to the Mirage Pokémon is the ability to use the data of other Mirage Pokémon to give them an edge in battle. This ability was used by the Mirage Mewtwo when it battled {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}}. During the time that this ability was being used, it was revealed that any mirage Pokémon whose data is being used are still fully conscious, this became evident when the Mirage Mew acted out and stopped Mewtwo from attacking. However it should be noted that the only reason Mew was able to do so is because it had the free will that the other Mirage Pokémon lacked.
If a Mirage Pokémon suffers critical damage, it reverts into data represented by hexagons floating in the air that then returnsreturn to the system through the hologram generators. If there is an overwhelming amount of data for the generators to absorb - seen when the Mirage Mewtwo with the entire database written into it is destroyed - the system overloads and explosively crashes.
The system is also seen to be capable of creating mirages of other things besides Pokémon, as Dr. Yung used it to create a mirage of his Mirage Master persona in order to misdirect suspicion from him being the Master's true identity.
