Who's that Pokémon? It's MISSINGNO.!

Even Ash should know better. Catching MISSINGNO. is tempting, but it’s too risky if you’re worried about your save file being corrupted!

    Looks like someone read the Let's horribly break Pokemon Blue thread on SomethingAwful.com. (It's a good thread if anyone is actually interested.)

    Look on the brightside. Now you have 128 copies of your sixth item!

    Even Engie thinks catching MISSINGNO. is a bad idea!

  6. Shawn Handyside on November 10th, 2010 9:38 pm

    That's funny I actually did read a good deal of that article today! I didn't know it had anything to do with SomethingAwful though…

  7. Kaylem on November 10th, 2010 9:41 pm

    You travel around Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh and catch every pokemon but Mew. You go back to Johto and activate the Old Man glitch. But you mess up. And instead of finding Mew, who shows up, corrupting your save and causing you to lose over 400 pokemon?

    MISSING MUTHA FUCKING NO.

  8. Gaytits on November 10th, 2010 9:50 pm

    Not the front page of SomethingAwful, mind you. It's from their forums, more specifically from the Let's Play subforum! The thread was really popular when it was going on.

  9. KamikazeGible on November 10th, 2010 10:11 pm

    Ash, you dumbass! Everyone knwos you're not supposed to CATCH Missingno.! Only Gary Motherfucking Oak is allowed to do that!

  10. KamikazeGible on November 10th, 2010 10:12 pm

    MISSINGNO. Not even once.

  11. Newbonzy1 on November 10th, 2010 10:24 pm

    Whenever I see this, I just have to think of nurse joy who keeps on putting pokeballs and eventually flowers and random crap into the poke healer.

    It's been scientifically proven that the only person who can stop and/or catch MISSINGNO. is GARY OAK.

  15. Daifuku on November 10th, 2010 11:09 pm

    Hopefully it will glitch Ash out of existence. Or at least glitch him to age properly.

  16. Link4all on November 10th, 2010 11:13 pm

    Brock: "Hey Ash, I found this neat Pokémon for you. I think you'll like it."

    Anyone else see a resemblance between MISSINGNO and Creepers?

    OH SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

    it will join the ranks of CSI jokes and not letting people do things, and we'll laugh at like 1/3.

    In the future, people will make CSI jokes about not letting you do that while drinking Dos Equis.

    I don't believe anyone expects ash to do anything important and be trolled for the rest of exsistance by Gary motherfukin Oak, which means he's living up to expectations.

    I actually wanted to start a petition awhile back to get MissingNo official recognized as a real pokemon (with an assigned number of 000 or ???), but two things prevented this from occuring.

    Firstly, it worked, only the existance of MissingNo corrupted reality in a similar manner as the proposed result of the Large Hadron Collider, causing particles so abhorrent to nature that they went back in time and sabotaged their own creation, thus stopping the other Lovecraftian horrors from entering our world (funny story: some of that is actually true science).

    Second, the group I planned to organize this under was to be call "MissingNo More." My compulsive punning proved too much even for me this time (I blame those time travelling particles), so I shut down the entire thing. Why not do the simple thing and change it's name? If PokeProblems were really so easy, I'd be able to delete Joey's fucking number and/or catch MissingNo and battle it against his "top percentile" Rattata, causing the collapse of the universe in a way that ensured that I saw his terrified face right before it happened.

  36. Zyquux on November 11th, 2010 3:17 am

    It looks like the Most Interesting Man in the World….

    I was JUST about to type down "Now, all I want to is, what does MISSINGNO. evolve into? =0!" But fuck it, this answer is good enough for me!!!

  43. Gamage on November 11th, 2010 6:13 am

    Just how many lives does he have?

  44. demospyro on November 11th, 2010 11:59 am

    But… it's a water type! or flying/normal?

  45. HeavyDDR99 on November 11th, 2010 12:06 pm

    he'll not only corrupt your game file but he'll also make all trainers Gary oak

  46. Barry Allen on November 11th, 2010 12:31 pm

    One may think that, but have you replied that on every comment who has not put the whole thing? I believe not, so good day sir.

  47. Fhantinabox on November 11th, 2010 12:58 pm

    the attack doesn't have to be fire; thunderpunch will work fine

  50. Marzen on November 11th, 2010 3:19 pm

    It's funny, cause Missingno actually doesn't do that to your game. It only corrupts your Hall of Fame data, but who really cares about THAAAAT? :3

    Now, M BLOCK on the other hand…

  51. A_Creative_Name on November 11th, 2010 6:33 pm

    That is the most badass Pokemon picture I've ever seen.

    I'd go into "graphic detail" on just how wrong this picture looks to me, but I probably shouldn't.

    Oh crap, I just gave you ideas.

    Actually, you can just kill it, and your rare candy will still duplicate.

  62. Ataeru on November 12th, 2010 12:41 am

    A friend told me years ago, that MISSINGNO evolves into a kangiskan with 2 water guns and a sky attack. but you guys should not consider that, as he also told me that there was a crystal onix/stelix at Mt. Silver in Crystal >_>

  67. BackwardsSneeky on November 12th, 2010 7:12 pm

    As great of a running joke it is, Missing No. isn't really dangerous. In fact it's more beneficial than harmful due to the item duplication, so long as you don't duplicate something like the coin case.

    .4 on the other hand can be quite harmful if not handled exactly right, mostly due to having the SUPERGLITCH move, which'll pretty much rape the game up the ass until it drowns in its own tears of agony.

  68. HeavyDDR99 on November 13th, 2010 2:44 pm

    well the face is the same as Garys but not the bodies
