MISSINGNO  MELTAN by Takoto MISSINGNO  MELTAN by Takoto
Glitch, data placeholder, error handler - whatever they are, they're effectively akin to the cryptids of the Pokémon world. And just like "real world" cryptids, I find them super interesting.

After a pretty fun Community Day, my fiancee and I found the PokéStops in our town completely swamped with the Niantic's odd creature, and honestly it was super interesting even though they disappeared, transforming into Chikorita and Ditto after we caught them. 

Also, regarding the title, I don't think the little creature /  Nutto / Missingnut is actually a placeholder!! I want to believe it's going to be a real Pokémon... :3c

Which is actually the same thing. The difference is that one has made it to the real games and the other one is a bad-outcome error (you choose which one is what) :facepalm:

Oh wow! Such an interesting take on Meltan. I was not there nor participated when it happened but I did see the Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee trailer for it. I love how you added the lines for the glitch effects. Seeing Missing art is rare and the only time I did see it was in a comic. You even made the shape look like glitches and it reminds me of the old days when where there was no cable we'd see something similar if not for specks of white and grey and black on TV. Meltan came out pretty cool and it looks as if they are just hopping from something. Their little cable 'tail' is cool too! Meltan's head looks metallic as there are some traces of a shine and shading with lines. Their eye is looking at the viewer in an interesting way. Almost in an ominous way. The background is cool too and you even have their shadows on it. Fantastic job and thank you for sharing!

Thank you so much!!
When I was a kid I was super interesting in Missingno. and the glitches around it, so I wanted to capture the odd glitching around it's shape. Even though it wasn't animated, sometimes it felt like the glitchy blocks were shifting about, so ^^

Can you imagine if Nintendo actually made this a Pokemon? That would be great!

No ones sure yet! As time goes by there's more and more evidence that it's not a placeholder or an error, and that the event's in GO the last couple of days were semi-planned by Niantic. Hopefully GameFreak will give us an announcement soon, so we can know for certain what's up!

I'm really hoping it is too!! Even if they say it's just an alternate, more stable form of it... it's be so cool.
