If I remember correct MissingNo doesn't have a standard TM/HM set...

Ehem. If MISSINGNO has a hex, it has a HM/TM list as well, asigned to the HEX. WHEEE


I am also unsure about the validity of the HM/TM list and for its base stats too. In my opinion these values are semi-random, depending on the memory part that affects its appearence. Maybe someone can run some research on that? On and please don't come up with another "if it has a hex" line again... --Arty2 20:00, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

I added more TMs to the list, as seen on [1]. They did extensive research into such glitches as Missingno., and came up with that TM and HM list. --Missingno. Master 10:53, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Either missingno. or some other glitch somehow did permanent damage to my Red.

The bit in a rom storing the color pallete for GBC/GBA/Super Game Boy was somehow modified, and so my game has screwed up colors. Does anyone know how it's even possible for this value to be modified? I assumed it was hardcoded. Also, is there a gameshark code I could use that will correct this value? --1338h4x 23:36, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Does it affect the entire game? Or only happen when your game is loaded? MK 02:17, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
The whole game, no matter how many times I erase data. Aside from the strange colors though, the rest of the game functions fine. --1338h4x 23:41, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
Well, that's strange. I always thought the default GBC colors were coded into the system. Maybe it depends on the game. --Libertyernie 19:36, 4 November 2006 (UTC)
If you press buttons while the GBC is booting up, you can change the palette. I take it this defines a set handful of colors for the game to draw upon, each one assigned to a value. --1338h4x 00:58, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Power Plant coast?

Is it possible in Pokémon Red & Blue to catch Missingno. or other non-water Pokémon on the coast near the Power Plant rather than the Cinnabar coast? I broke my Blue (by foolishly using a Game Genie) so I can't test it out. --Libertyernie 19:36, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

I doubt it. The reason the missingno glitch occurs is that Cinnabar has no Pokemon defined for surf encounters, despite the existance of one stip of water, the coast. As such, the variable for encounters is set at whatever it was last, like the safari zone. Old Man's weedle is either M or Missingno, I forget which. Your other encounters are determined by your name, since that's where the game chooses to store the string while replacing your name with OLD MAN. --1338h4x 00:58, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

DP Missingno.?

I've seen that video on YouTube before, and I figured that it needed mentioning here in Missingno.'s article, since it has the similar appearance. Anyway, does anyone have DP who's tried the glitch who can give a firsthand account? Tom Temprotran 13:06, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

MissingNo. in the Japanese green verison?

Does MissingNo. appear in the Japanese green verison? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Asukagirl (talkcontribs).

Far as I know it does. Our Blue was based off Green's wild Pokémon, so if it's there in Blue, it's there in Green. Tom Temprotran 03:21, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Remember the old rumors?

I remember back in the day, like... eight years ago? Anyhow, I remember the stories that were circulating around GameFAQs and Pokemon fansites about... well, this and other things, but this one especially. I remember the best being that if you see missingno., you needed to immediately kill it to prevent your game from being fried. I dunno about you guys, but since this was before the internet was really huge, I start selling people khangaskans. Never hurt me, except I lost a file on my Red once. But I had like, ninty kangaskans, so I would trade them to other kids for like, twenty bucks. I was rolling in dough for several weeks. It was great.

Seafoam Islands

Why isn't the fact that MissingNo. can also be found at Seafoam Island mentioned here? Even mentioned this fact once when they mentioned the Safari Zone glitch. Of coarse, they did make a mistake when they said that MissingNo. can appear if you preform the Safari Zone Glitch and not the MissingNo. glitch itself. I'd like to add that part to this article, however, I won't until someone else agrees with me on this issue or better yet, adds it themselves. --Jake 19:49, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

I think it's not in here because you can't find Missingno. at Seafoam Island. Yes, its coast has the same programming error as Cinnibar, but you can't get to Seafoam Island directly from Viridian like you can with Cinnibar. You have to SURF from Fuchsia or Cinnibar, and entering a route with wild Pokemon during the glitch process effectively nullifies it. Fsilone 02:32, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

You can. Routes 19 and 20 only have data for Pokémon found while surfing. No grass. Grass data is used for the coasts. User:TTEchidna/sig 02:58, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Spacety space space

Note there is an extra space in front of the Ghost Missingno.'s name. Compare it to the regular. Thought I'd give a mention. TinaTheKirlia 22:26, 20 September 2007 (UTC)'re right... huh. Odd, because MISSINGNO. is the ten-char limit... TTEchidna 06:15, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Missingno. or MissingNo.?

Seriously? TTEchidna 05:23, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

How can we ever really tell? I mean, all names in the games are in capitals, and Missingno. is not an official character, so there's no references or published stuff to check it against... --DarkfireTaimatsu 05:27, 23 September 2007 (UTC)
That's my question, what was so wrong about leaving it as Missingno.?
As for references, well... we COULD ask Nintendo their stance on the name... I've had Insomniac answer more meaningless questions. TTEchidna 09:41, 23 September 2007 (UTC)
I've seen an email by Nintendo about Missingno... and I've pretty sure they spelled it "MissingNo.". (Not that I spell it that way, haha.) TinaTheKirlia File:281MS.gif 15:47, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

I dont think it really is a glitch, really! File:Ani491MS.gifKPF 16:49, 14 November 2007 (UTC) Um. But it IS a glitch. o.o; 281Tinaδ282 18:31, 14 November 2007 (UTC)


if you look closely at it, its pixels will somehow look like mewtwo, at least for me.

Other forms?

Can someone upload sprites of Missingno.'s other forms? You know, the ghost (and the Wild MISSINGNO. appeared! screenshot doesn't count), the Aerodactyl skeleton, and the Kabutops skeleton? I'd do it myself, if I knew how. Missingno. Master 23:57, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

PLEASE??? Without them, the page just doesn't seem complete. ??? 21:44, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

In the anime

OK, whose bright idea was it to completely erase the "in the anime" section??? --

Glitch Pokémon and Official Pokémon

There is no real difference between the two. In my opinion, the two should be considered equal!


01:40, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

Because, seriously, Missingno. didn't appeared in the anime. Those were ghosts created by Ghastly which was strong enough to confuse Ash's Pokedex. Does Ghastly have a move that can instantly create a Missingno. in the games? I don't think so. >_> File:Ani026MS.gifMudkipchanFile:Ani392MS.gif

Does it have a move that can create ghosts instantly? Didn't think so. Besides, why do you assume Gastly created them? For all we know, it could be its minions.

Glitch Pokémon and Official Pokémon

There is no real difference between the two. In my opinion, the two should be considered equal!


01:47, 31 December 2007 (UTC)
Because, my dear Wattson, the skull ghosts were gathered there and turned into Gastly. Apparently, at the same time, the lady disappeared. User:Optimus35/sig 04:35, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

The Japanese name

Do Ketsuban come from the kana within the old japanese games? Because, a "ketsuban" is a kind of annoying moskito wich dwells in lakes and rivers. I'm mentioning this because this "non-pokemon" uses some water and "flying" attacks, wich perhaps are related to being that moskito. Someone get this? --Gaudhi 20:05, 3 January 2008 (UTC)


Missingno =/= real Pokémon. It's basic only purpose is filler data. e____e User:TinaTheKirlia/Sig 20:56, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Can you prove it? Are you absolutely positively sure?!?!!?User:Pokemaniac102/Sig 20:57, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I'm sure. It's only obtainable through a glitch, you can't get it from events, it didn't appear in later games under the name of Missingno., (Others are dubbed Missingno, however they are not, they are more minor filler data), etc. User:TinaTheKirlia/Sig 21:00, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Are you absolutely sure that Missingno will never appear in the anime?!!!? Are you sure that the writers won't decide to put it in an episode?!!!!? Are you sure???!!? Did you write the storyline of the Pokémon Anime Series?!!!!! NO.User:Pokemaniac102/Sig 21:11, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Did you write the anime? User:TinaTheKirlia/Sig 21:12, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Oh.....Toché 21:15, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Argh #2

We... we really need a page protect for this page. e_e User:TinaTheKirlia/Sig 21:03, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

....I'm telling Sketchies right now.....User:Theryguy512/Sig 21:08, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Why would this page need protecting? Just leave the Biology section and stuff alone, and we have no problem! -- Glitch and Official Pokémon. There is no real difference between the two. In my opinion, the two should be considered equal!-- quoted by Missingno. Master 21:10, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

The biology section isn't needed, though. User:TinaTheKirlia/Sig 21:11, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Also, can't you see the fairly-obvious revert war going on? That's why I want a protection request. User:TinaTheKirlia/Sig 21:11, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
That would slow down Project Glitchdex.User:Pokemaniac102/Sig 21:12, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
It'd stop this horrible revert war, though. User:TinaTheKirlia/Sig 21:13, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Sketchies is doing it as we speak....User:Theryguy512/Sig 21:14, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

No, you know what? I'LL stop this horrible revert war. I'll stop reverting the darn thing, OK? *waves white flag of defeat* -- Glitch and Official Pokémon. There is no real difference between the two. In my opinion, the two should be considered equal!-- quoted by Missingno. Master 21:14, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Uh... *waves another white flag in defeat as well* Who knows.User:Pokemaniac102/Sig 21:15, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

What's the Glitchdex? User:Agggron/sig

Bulbapedia:Project GlitchDex This. -- Glitch and Official Pokémon. There is no real difference between the two. In my opinion, the two should be considered equal!-- quoted by Missingno. Master 21:17, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

I think Theryguy said that he was doing it as we speak to scare us to quit.User:Pokemaniac102/Sig 21:18, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

I was gonna quit anyway. A few relatively pointless sections aren't worth it. -- Glitch and Official Pokémon. There is no real difference between the two. In my opinion, the two should be considered equal!-- quoted by Missingno. Master 21:21, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Yea...about that....we kinda have a problem....Sketchies doesn't know how to protect a when the next admin is on Aim, I'll tell them to portect it.....User:Theryguy512/Sig 21:23, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

WHY??? I already said I'd stop the stupid revert war! -- Glitch and Official Pokémon. There is no real difference between the two. In my opinion, the two should be considered equal!-- quoted by Missingno. Master 21:25, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! User:Pokemaniac102/Sig 21:25, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

And if this page is protected, as mentioned above, Project GlitchDex will be slowed down considerably! -- Glitch and Official Pokémon. There is no real difference between the two. In my opinion, the two should be considered equal!-- quoted by Missingno. Master 21:26, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Because MissingNo. is like the main Glitch.User:Pokemaniac102/Sig 21:27, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Well, LOL, I'm teaching Sketchies how to protect a page, it may take a while.....User:Theryguy512/Sig 21:37, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Finally, it's protected.....User:Theryguy512/Sig 21:39, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Not from me. But I'm not gonna do anything.User:Pokemaniac102/Sig 21:43, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Nope nevermind. I guess fourth time's a charm.User:Pokemaniac102/Sig 21:46, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

WHY DID YOU HAVE IT PROTECTED??? I must've said a million times I'd stop reverting it! Is my word worth NOTHING????!?-- Glitch and Official Pokémon. There is no real difference between the two. In my opinion, the two should be considered equal!-- quoted by Missingno. Master 21:48, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

I think Sketchies thinks that it is nothing. And that's my word too!User:Pokemaniac102/Sig 21:49, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Don't yell at Sketchies, yell at me. I was the one who told him to protect it. User:Theryguy512/Sig 21:54, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Then I redirect that comment at you.User:Pokemaniac102/Sig 21:55, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
This is fricking loony. User:TTEchidna/sig 03:29, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Okay, just looking back through history, I personally have no qualms with what Missingno. Master was adding to the page, I didn't see any thing wrong with it. What WAS so wrong with it? Glinn32px 03:39, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Missingno. isn't really a Pokémon.. it doesn't have gender differences, it doesn't need a Biology section, etc... User:TinaTheKirlia/Sig 03:41, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

It's a glitch Pokémon, it's there, it's in the game, you can not deny that. There is no problem in having biology for glitch Pokémon, because they are still actual Pokémon. What do you have against game location of Missingno.? Or it's special abilities? There is no problem with them being there. Glinn32px 03:47, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Nintendo does not consider it a Pokémon, and consensus seems to be that we don't either. We don't need a "gender differences" section for a (glitch) Pokémon that has no gender. The info in the "Special abilities" section repeated what is said in Rare Candy cheat, as did "Habitat". File:Ani201QuMS.gif abwayax (t/c) File:Ani201ExMS.gif 03:52, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

True, but that is a more detailed explanation, where as the one Missingno. Master was putting was just simple. If people wanted more information, they could just scroll up/down the page. Yes, Ninetendo doesn't consider it a Pokémon, but the fact of the matter is that t's in the game, and it CAN be used in battle. That's at least a bit of a Pokémon, no? (Also, just make this page unprotected, as there won't be any more reverts, that's already been said) Glinn32px 03:59, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Which is why it has battle data. It needs no other data because it has no dex entry, never appeared outside of Red and Green/Blue, and was never intended to be FOUND.
I don't think the protection is going to last very long, though. MM agreed to stop edit warring, and as mentioned before it's locking the article from good-faith contributors. File:Ani201QuMS.gif abwayax (t/c) File:Ani201ExMS.gif 04:08, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
