The True MissingNo by Cerderius The True MissingNo by Cerderius
Note: If you want to figure out the true just go to the last bit of this info :D Because there is alot

Everyone knows about MissingNo. An L-shaped block, or Marowak Ghost, or Kabuto Skeleton that appears on the left side of Cinnabar Island. People don't really know what this glitch is, but I have found the real reason to its existence.

Note: I am working with R/B/Y MissingNo

What most people observe:

Appearance:

L-Shaped Block
Marowak Ghost
Kabuto Skeleton
Aerodactyl Fossil

Location Found:

I haven't done much research but these are the know locations.

Cinnibar Island - Old Man Glitch

Route 11 - The Gambler. Found using the Mew Trick

Type:

Water/Normal
Water/ 999

Moves:

Water Gun
Water Gun
Sky Attack
Sky Attack

What I know:

Everything above and then some.

So why have I posted this picture. Well first off, I am a lover of all Pokemon, except the newer stuff >...<

I was 7 when I first got Pokemon Blue. And at that age was my first encounter with MissingNo. Never really looked into it because, well heck I was 7(or 8) So at the age of 18 I tend to download ROMS and Emulators of the games of yore, which have mysteriously disappeared. But anyway I downloaded Red, Blue and Yellow as reminders and time consumers.

Now if you don't know the Mew Trick the I'll briefly explain.

The Mew Trick is a small glitch in which you find Mew right when you get to Cerulean City. In the grasses next to the Nugget Bridge you can encounter wild Abras. Catch one without battling the trainer in the grass. Stand next to the water where if you take another step he will see you. The moment you move into his field of vision pause the game and Teleport using Abra. The trainer will notice you and you will teleport back to the PokeCenter. Go up Nugget Bridge and fighter the Youngster with the Slowpoke. The teleport again. Make you way to Nugget Bridge and a speech bubble or Menu will appear. Exit it. Wild Mew Appears.

Simple as that.

So by using that trick you can encounter Mew and various other wild Lvl. 7 Pokemon depending on the trainers you fight. (Example: Blastoise, Moltres, Dragonite. Just to name a few(Want proof, ask me)) Including a MissingNo(See above).

This picture was inspired by the various forms that you can encounter. This one being from Pokemon Yellow.

Note: Mew Trick in Pokemon Yellow works, but beware the MissingNo.

Many people argue that its just a glitch. It sounds like a Nidoran(M), Evolves into Kangaskan blah blah blah blah blah

No you are all wrong.

As seen in this picture, the Yellow Version MissingNo has very prominent features similar to Pokemon G/S/C Versions Ho-Oh Sprite.

Ho-Oh was in fact to be programmed into R/B/Y. Now you might say I can't see that. Well Pokemon Red and Blue came out two years before the Anime. The first episode of the anime had Ho-Oh in it.

I know the programmers would never admit to such a conjecture but proof is proof in a solid form.

Anyway that is the truth of MissingNo.

MissingNo. = Ho-Oh

End of Story.

I do not own Pokemon.

Actually it was confirmed by Nintendo, Game Freak, and Creatures, Inc. That Missingno is the lost code that allowed Marowak to evolve into Kangaskhan. But I can see that the Ho-Oh sprite was used to form Missingno, proving that Ho-Oh was supposed to be in R/B/G/Y.

Well, yes and no.
R/B MissingNo. = Marowak -> Kangaskhan.
Y MissingNo. = Ho-Oh.

Interesting theory

Considering Ho-oH is the only Flying pokemon seen but not named in the first season of the anime and Missingno. is a bird type with Sky attack.

what I heard was that missingno is a deleted pokemon but they didn't deleted well and missingno came.
So it's possible that they wanted ho-oh in kanto as like the ruler of acticuno/zapdos/moltres but they decided to delete him but instead that ho-oh missngno thingy came

Hi, I have noticed that you submitted this into the wrong category. The category you have submitted it into is for Digital Dolls and Bases (pixel art done with body templates provided by other people)

If you have to this, it belongs in Scraps since you did not contribute to it in any artistic way.

For more information, or if you still think that your piece should be in this category, more info is here - [link]
Respectively, a very helpful "dolling dictionary" defining many terms you may be confused about can be found here - [link]

Please don't take this offensively, I am sorry if you do. I am just trying to help out and keep the categories organized.

:pokeball: The Yellow Missingno was really designed as a Golden colored Ho-Oh. It screwed up for some reason, like other Pokemon that were made for Kanto, and their places were filled with Missingno.s as a debug feature. Kanto was supposed to have 190 Pokemon. :pokeball:

Did you know that Arceus was born from an Egg placed where there was nothing, and when it hatched, it shaped the Planets and stars; and five pokemon; Three on earth, and two in the darkest and loneliest reaches of space. The three pokemon shaped the earth's seas, continents, and the sky. The pokemon creating the seas started creating seas too fast, resulting in the earth being covered 75% by water

The pokemon creating the land got angry and started creating land rapidly, which eventually turned into a fight between the two. Then the pokemon creating the skies got angry and put them both into deep sleeps.
__The two pokemon created in the darkest reaches of space, were very important, because, as one of the pokemon's heart beats, time flows. And as the other pokemon breathes, space expands.
Well you know the whole story, don't you?=p

Missingno. was actually the pure golden colored Ho-Oh that Ash saw in the first episode of Pokemon. It was supposed to be the first Pokemon ever made. But then, it was canceled and it later became Ho-Oh in Johto. It was on Nintendo's website and in an edition of CoroCoro. So your deviation is actually true. The yellow Missingno. is actually a glitched Ho-Oh.
And the theory of it evolving into Kangaskhan is actually true, since it has a form of Marowak's ghost. Marowak was intended to evolve into Kangaskhan. Now this was quite surprising to me but I believed it at last when I read it on Nintendo's website.
Cubone is actually a baby Kangaskhan whose mother dies. It wears its mother's skull on his head and carries a bone from the body. When it evolves into Marowak, the skull fuses with the Marowak's head. And Marowak was intended to evolve into a Kangaskhan. When it evolves into Kangaskhan, the skull fuses into its skull forming a plate that you can see on Kangaskhan's head. But Marowak evolving into Kangaskhan was canceled due to the fact that a Kangaskhan would not give birth to a Cubone, thus ending the species. Therefore, Cubone was declared a different species, with Male and Female genders, Whereas, Kangaskhan are only Female, they have no Males. If you don't believe me, the internet is crawling with clues. Take this picture for example: [link]
or this one: [link]
And if you want more clues, then here they are:
1.Notice the spikes on Cubone's back. Similar spikes are on Kangaskhan's back.
2.Notice Marowak's eye. Its quite similar to Kangaskhan's eye. In fact its almost the same.
3.Notice the spike on Marowak's tail. The same spike, you can see on Kangaskhan's tail.
4.Notice the divisions on Marowak's belly. You'll notice that the top division is larger than the lower ones. Which, ironically, is the pouch that Kangaskhan has. Kangaskhan too has divisions below the pouch.
5.Notice the color similarities.
6.If you look carefully, you'll notice that the skull Cubone is wearing is quite similar to Kangaskhan's head without the plate on Kangaskhan's head.
Thus, The theory of Missingno. (Which has a form of Marowak's ghost) evolving into Kangaskhan.
Moreover, The Golden Ho-Oh Missingno. was also supposed to be a Legendary Bird in Kanto, along with the three others.
All the above^information is not a lie.

i really like your idea and now i know but ho-oh is fire so how can it know water gun and y does missing no evolve into kangkhaskhan (cant spell TT_TT) but i think your right and the people that say its marowak which explaining it evolving into kangkhaskan so even though this makes sense im still confused

Cerderius Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thats the thing. Water gun and sky attack can't be learned by both. So it definitely at topic that only programmers could answer. How I look at it is that when in the process of putting in Ho-Oh, they just preset the moves and evolution process for a base and would edit it as they see fit. Its not that MissingNo./'M was supposed to be a water/flying type. Its just the basic layering to start the proper programing. Well atleast in my opinion.

Now I do enjoy and fully believe the theory that Cubone is a baby Kangaskhan. But the thing is Kangaskhans are only female. A baby can be male or female. If it is female and the mother didn't die then it would become a Kangaskhan. If it was mal or female and the mother died then it would become a Cubone to defend itself. Hence why Cubones and Marowaks can be both genders. If a Marowak breeds and has an egg technically the baby would still be a baby Kangaskan. When the mother Marowak dies the baby wouldn't take the skull that she was wearing, but the actual skull of the Marowak.

Now this my advanced theory on that topic.

Ash's Japanese name comes from someone important in GameFREAK: Satoshi Tajiri. I forget if he's in-charge or not, but he's very important in GameFREAK. And you know the breeding mechanic to increase odds of Shinies in eggs? A real person who works for the company that makes the Pokemon games is named Masuda. The Masuda Method was named after him. Also, GameFREAK has this habit of putting themselves into their Pokemon games. Usually as useless NPCs, but in Heart Gold and Soul Silver, they are where you get the item to change the game's music to classic Pokemon music. It can be turned off and on as you see fit. I believe they only give it to you once you talk to the right person when you have all 16 Badges.
