    Dr. Yung, also known as the Mirage Master (Japanese: ドクター・ユング Dr. Yung), is the supporting character in the 10th Anniversary special mini movie Pokémon: The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon which is set during the events of Pokemon: Battle Frontier and a former student of Professor Oak while being the hidden true main antagonist of this special.

    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 depicted as strongly 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. He is one of few characters that can be described as pure evil.

    Why He's the Mastermind of Moronic Evil Plans

    1. First off, Dr. Yung/Mirage Master is just another “evil mad scientist” with generic evil plans to take over the world while being way too dark to be an antagonist of kid's show like Pokémon, even for an Anniversary Special, he comments on so many actions that are downright evil, which will be explained in the list.
    2. His being the Mirage Master unleashing the rest of the Mirage Pokémon is way too obvious, even the intro spoils it.
    3. When being revealed as the Mirage Master, Yung is utterly heartless, cruel, and an embodiment of pure unadulterated evil, even more so than Tobias and Shamus to the point that he makes them look like mere Togepis in comparison, sure, Tobias may have overpowered Ash with a Mythical and a Legendary Pokémon in the Sinnoh league, and Shamus may have abused Tepig, but Dr. Yung actually attempts to murder Ash, co, and their Pokémon.
    4. At one point in the Special, it's revealed that Dr. Yung was an expelled student because his experiments on Pokémon were his cruel tendencies for no real reason, and just wants revenge.
    5. His hair style, while decent and basic, looks too similar to Syrus Truesdale from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX with the glasses and the hairstyle and the same hair color.
    6. As the Mirage Master, Dr. Yung's only care was just to kidnap and torture other trespassers going to his castle-like laboratory like when he took Ash's Pikachu and tortures him on an electric rack until his mentor, Professor Oak tells him the code.
    7. During the climax of the Special, Dr. Yung has his Mirage Mewtwo KILL Mirage Mew and rafting other trespassers like when he took Ash's Pikachu and torments.
    8. His goal is unclear and very generic, but the closest is that he wants to experiment with Pokémon in his cruel ways while also replacing them with his Mirage system to take over the world, but why does Yung want to replace organic life with holograms, and how is that supposed to help him take over the world?
    9. Character Derailment: As the Mirage Master, he hardly does anything but command the Mirage Pokémon.
    10. Like other villains, he monologues and talks way too much about his evil schemes.
    11. Despite all of his ungrateful actions, Yung barely gets his comprehend for his evil and sinister actions as after Ash's Pikachu defeats his Mirage Mewtwo, Professor Oak...lets Dr. Yung off scot free by going back to his burning laboratory, making him a Karma Houdini.
    12. He barely has any connection with other primary villains such as Team Rocket, Team Magma, and Team Aqua during the events of Battle Frontier whom the three factions were supposed to be more villainous, twisted, and evil than Yung.
    13. We learn nothing about why he wanted to experiment Pokémon for his cruel tendencies, instead it's never addressed after going back to his burning laboratory to possibly die or not.
    14. He is rather one of the most forgettable characters and villains in Pokémon history along with being the most hated and weakest.
    15. His name is racist as it's offensive to Chinese people.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. Dr. Yung's design is decent along with his Mirage Master outfit.
    2. His voice acting is pretty good.

    Trivia

    • Considering the titles (Dr. Yung and Mr. Mirage) he was given in the Japanese version, he may have been a play on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. His name and duality might also be a reference to Carl Jung.
    • Dr. Yung is very similar to Colress, in the sense that both are scientists who appear friendly but are secretly villainous and obsessive over the power of Pokémon. In the Pokémon Adventures manga, Colress' alter-ego of Hood Man also bears a striking resemblance to Yung's Mirage Master identity.
    • Dr. Yung shares the same Japanese and English voice actors as Dr. Kenzo.
