Arbitrary code execution with missingno sprites?

On the bulbapedia article about missingno, it says "In Pokémon Yellow, capturing MissingNo. will commonly cause multiple player sprites, and sometimes other NPC's, to walk around the screen. If the NPC is aligned to the grid, it is possible to talk to them. Doing so may display text from the area, or may cause glitch text.

Off the edge of the console

Is it possible to move the program counter somewhere so that it gets to the end of all the data and can't move any further? What happens if you do that? Does it loop around to the beginning? Does it start executing code based on what's outside the device? Does it freeze? Does it fall of the edge of the console and start executing random code until it executes a command to start executing actual data? Does the console explode? (that is very unlikely).
