  • This has got to be the most comprehensive, complete, and informative Glitch Pokémon Bulbapedia has to offer. Surely a precendent to be set for all the stub-esque Glitch Pokémon articles with little more than an infobox, vague information, and MAYBE a learneset. I'm Missingno. Master, and I approve this message. 15:45, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
  • I agree with Missingno. Master. That, and i love Missingno., awesome Glitch. ~~Takoto タコト| サソデイ = 愛 15:58, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Very detailed, very self-explanatory. I nominate. Θρtιmαtum♏Talk|Links02:49 6 Sep 2008

  • MissingNo. was one of the most significant elements of Pokémon in the early days of Red/Blue in America. I believe that information on Ketsuban and how it was viewed in the Japanese perspective are the main missing information that would make said article perfect. Despite this however, MissingNo.'s significance far outweighs any other game element, at least to the players of Red/Blue; I highly doubt that there is anyone who played Red/Blue who knew not of MissingNo. at some point or another, though the truth about MissingNo. is still largely unknown to the general populace, and it is still looked down upon for the deeds of its fellows such as chiisai-u and 'm. For it's importance in the Rare Candy Code, it's reappearance in the Mew Glitch, and its infamous nature to Red/Blue players, MissingNo. is the ONLY Glitch Pokémon notable enough to be featured. And it IS notable, and worthy of being a Feature Article. Satosuke 13:43, 15 October 2008 (UTC)
  • MISSINGNO. was the original OG, and not FA'ing his/her/its/your mom's article is a major disservice what could quickly dissolve into a riot. 欠番 18:42, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Not only is this article the most detailed Glitch Pokémon article (in my opinion), it is also one of the most detailed articles of all. I greatly support the idea of this being a featured article. ZanderX 08:39, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Very detailed and very bright, I think that this article represents what we are looking for at Bulbapedia.--Smartkidhen 2:54 12 November 2008 (UTC)
  • While I don't classify Missingno as an actual Pokémon (I can't see why anyone would), it is indeed the most noteworthy glitch in the history of the series and has a fantastic, thoroughly detailed article. Agreed. Marlowe 20:06, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Everything I was going to say was said already in greater detail. The Dark Fiddler - Smarter than the average bear! 22:49, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
  • The page has a lot of research information and is quite well written (though could use some more polishing), so I think it's worth a Featured article tag. UltimateSephiroth (about me · chat · edits) 19:40, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
  • Who the hell says it is not a Pokémon? It has a set of sprites, base stats and its own cry... the only thing it lacks of is a Pokédex entry, but wathever. Face it people (and Nintendo, Yeah!)... IT IS A REAL POKéMON!!! hfc2X 07:55, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
It’s not a Pokémon, more like the instantiation of the Pokémon class. In a programmer’s parlance, it is to Pokémon as "" is to std::string. It is a piece of data, not a creature that supposedly exists within the fictional Pokémon universe (unlike, say, Sandshrew). That’s my main beef with the article, and with all glitch articles really (although again, Missingno. is not a glitch either). IIMarckus 17:16, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
  • MissingNo. is probably the most popular gaming glitch in history. I even did a science project on it once! It's been featured in magazines, it's been made into fake cards, it's been on the news... And on this very clever article. FA away. User:Dusknoir477 17:40, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Informative and good article.--Sher-e-Bengal- 06:15, 26 February 2009 (UTC)
  • Um, widen your horizons objecters, just because it is a glitch doesn't mean it isn't good, look at it (I didn't even know what Missigno. was till I saw this and now I know everything about it)--Pokemonguy1 Pikachu 02:49, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
  • This is probably one of the most comprehensive articles on Bulbapedia. It should be used as an example for all the other articles, as it is descriptive and tells you many, many details on Missingno. I could not know who the heck Missingno. is, read this article, and be very knowlledgable on this subject. Covers all standards for FAs, and I support it! Just because you think it isn't real(which of course it is), doesn't mean it isn't worthy of being a FA. Missingno. rules! --Snowfire 16:11, 11 April 2009 (UTC)Snowfire
  • Ditto to Snowfire. Yes, you people are only voting object just because this wasn't supposed to exist, it's just a glitch, blah, blah, blah. Vote for the worth of the article. Alpha Totodile 22:51, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Hey, it's a very well-written article, not to mention it actually makes sense to people unfamiliar with the game's inner workings (like me :P). I'm all for it gaining featured status. --Turaga Dlakii (Talk!) 10:49, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Glitchs are really are things Nintendo doesn't approve of. I personally think the article is good, but not enough for a FA. Aura-Knight
Ah, but Nintendo doesn't run Bulbapedia, does it? I'm Missingno. Master, and I approve this message. 02:06, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Biology and Physiology sections indicate this is a living thing in-universe. Those bits should be renamed to reflect Missingno.'s nature. Other than that, it's actually a pretty good article. --Martonimos((Argh|Blargh)) 08:43, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
  • I am quite sure that we should not have a fake Pokémon's article on our mainpage.--Diby 08:47, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
  • Sorry I agree with Diby. Pokemonboy 08:49, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
No, no, no, no, no. Pikablu is a fake Pokémon. Mewthree is a fake Pokémon. But Missingno..... He's real, whether Nintendo likes it or not. I'm Missingno. Master, and I approve this message. 10:28, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
Missingno. has a huge place in Pokémon history. Worthiness shouldn't even be in question here. --FabuVinny |Talk Page| 19:11, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
  • It's the best glitch related article in Bulbapedia, but I don't think it should be a FA. User: Dialgalover
  • The article acts too much as if Missingno. were a real Pokémon (this is my problem with most of the glitch articles, not that Missingno. is really a glitch). Treat it as what it is—a placeholder for sprites and unused Pokémon, with no moveset and no Pokédex entry. IIMarckus 20:01, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
  • No. I'm so sick of the stupid Missing No. and I don't want it to be a FA. --ケンジガール 22:17, 29 December 2008 (UTC)
  • See the above three comments.User:DCM 22:32, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
  • What? Why would we feature an article about something that wasn't even supposed to exist?--Starlight the ampharos 03:20, 15 March 2009 (UTC)
    • because it does exist and it deserves an article just like anything else does (anything good that is)--Pokemonguy1 Pikachu 02:50, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
      • I don't agree with that reasoning. It's just there...placeholder...glitch...without it, nothing happens, if anything, it's better... ht14 03:06, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Object. See above. ht14 03:06, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
  • I agree with aura-knight.Glitch=cheat, as in not good, not approved, etc.Besides a F.A.?

  • I move that the vote be closed. 欠番 17:00, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
  • I agree. Overwhelming majority rules. I'm Missingno. Master. See my new and improved user page, and comment on it! 20:04, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
  • The majority of objections is because of its glitch status.--Pokemonguy1 Pikachu 02:51, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

This article should be featured.Missingno. really deserves a featured article. :P Sanni 17:10, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

  • I agree with Pokemonguy1. Votes should be made according to the features of the article, not what it's about. Many think just because Missingno. is a glitch, it shouldn't be a FA. It's very annoying. --Snowfire 16:20, 11 April 2009 (UTC)Snowfire
