MissingNo. by sedge MissingNo. by sedge
EDIT: D00d. I just found out that MissingNo. actually looks like that ghost thing you'd see Ghastly as before you got that one item. What I've got here is "M". Which is totally not how I remember it.

EDIT x2: Wait, no. According to this page, the name MissingNo. was used for both the ghost and the blob. So I don't totally fail. Yey.

Anyway, this here is for :iconpokedex:, which is a club for people who live in their parent's basement.

Also, for drawings of humanized Pokemon. Same thing.

Now, for those of you who aren't as OLD SKOOL as me (or spent the later portion of the 20th century outside with your friends), this is MissingNo, one of the many glitches to be found in the original Pokemon games. I think the deal was you had to talk to the guy who'd show you how to catch a Pokemon, then fly to Cinnabar Island (m i rite?) and surf up and down the coast until MissingNo. appeared.

I'm not entirely sure what it was supposed to do, and I'm fairly certain that you could also get regular Pokemon that weren't supposed to be in that area, or something called M (for... Maples. I dunno whut?). You could also use it to duplicate items, which is what I did. They always said that if you caught it, it would screw up your game. Well, I didn't, but it did. I had all 150 Pokemon, too. That was a big deal back then! :/

Man, I gotta go use that line on some 6 year olds. Back in my day, we only had 150 Pokemon, and we were thankful!

Here's some more coherent info on Missingno. that hasn't been addled by the passage of time and that fact that I was 8 when I learned all this.

If you only had 151, you didn't have all of them. Not counting the glitch pokemon. You forgot the Mew.

There's more than missingno. There's also bag eggs, ?????????, , ?, alt., etc. They really grunk up your game. ? is the safest, and in what I know it looks like the ? in a circle from the hoenn pokedex. Plus, missingno has been in all the first 3 gens. It's scary. My sis flipped out when I told her about it.

if you look at the baby kangaskan sprit then the cubone spirti they look aloth alike. put the cubone skull on a kangaskan head and it has the shape of a kangaskans head. female marowaks were supposed to evolve into kangaskan but they didnt wan to delet the code so they made MissingNo. a pokemon without a number

O RLY? Where did you get old 151? Under a truck? Maybe you rich kids could afford to be rollin' in yer flatbeds with a Mew ridin' shotgun, but us regular kids had to make due with the reality of only 150. AND IT WAS UPHILL BOTH WAYS.

There is actually a glitch in the game that you can encounter Mew. But you probably need to start over. Youtube video [link]

Possibly how this glitch exist was because in the Japanese version of the game, you can encounter a Mew if you caught all 150 Pokemon and show it to the Gamefreak guys. But in the NA region, they took that out.

Actually, Mew was completely obtainable through trade events that took place all over the world. It was in Red, blue, yellow and green. You just needed to be in a state or city that was holding an event at the time. XD Sadly they never came to perth west australia, but I still got one from a friend who attended an event over east.

Dude. Yer from PERTH. How can you call that "completely obtainable"? Did they even have an event anywhere on your entire countrontinent?

Yes, I recall reading of those magic, sweaty events-- how they mocked me! I was eight! How was I supposed to get to New York or whatever other high-fallutin' city-states they held those in? Hey mom! Drive me to LA so I can get this pink blob of pixels on my games box!

We had a better chance with the truck lie.

M for MissingNo.
And M/MissingNo. would make whatever item you had in slot 6 become 128 of that item.
Nicely done. Reminds me of Samara from the Ring.

This is a cool version of Missingno. he's always been my favorite pokemon. I would completely ruin my games just to have him. :D

Also I have a weird question. I can't remember if I used to talk to you or just be a fan of you. My username was WillowWhiskers...?
