Missingno. is a pokemon eldritch abomination, plain and simple.

How?

It comes from seemingly nowhere out of the ocean to inflict it's unintelligible mass of garbled horror upon your character's mind, breaking it in the process of trying to understand what he's seeing. This is shown, as the glitch has side effects after seeing it, like the mangled up hall of fame and somehow believing he has infinite copies of some item in his bag. Furthermore, when you meet him in the later versions, Gold and Silver, the poor guy's been rendered so insane that he can no longer speak, and has become a recluse in a cave.


...Well that's my theory anyway. XD ;

Beneath the seas, beside the flame,

Off the coast where the Lost Beast came

To bring the world misery and shame,

A piece of the world is Missing.


The path you should have never crossed.

The beast exacts a heavy cost.

The number of the beast is lost.

You will know it by its hissing.


The bones from Hell you cannot tame

Devour your life and all your fame.

That is the price to play its game,

And all while you're reminiscing.

He met the Pokemon equivalent of a Digimon. It's that simple.

Funnily enough, I was listening to the Hall of Origin music from Diamond/Pearl/Platinum when I found this and I thought the music fit.

I LOVE IT! Your theory that is, about Missingno being the Pokémon version of a Lovecraftian being. :clap:
