So I was rummaging through some old stuff I did for nostalgia and came across something I did called the "MissingNo. Journal", which is comparable to a typical review done by the Irate Gamer. I figured you guys might get a kick (or become consumed with rage, I dunno) out of seeing the stupid s**t I wrote.
And yes, when I first wrote this, I thought it was genius. And yes, I am aware of how smug and egotistical I sound. I apologize if the tone makes you punch your computer monitor in rage. If it makes you feel any better, I'm not as dumb as I was when I was 12.
"MISSINGNO. JOURNAL". There are two pictures of MissingNo., one as his normal pixel form, and the other as the ghost.
I was 11 years old at the time when I first heard about the Missingno creature. I had typed the name into Google and it said how to get it. I had also heard about the many dangers about it, and I wanted to investigate it.
(Sorry if this sounds like somebody already put this).
I had to talk to the old man who shows you how to catch Pokemon. I also had to make the item I want to make infinite of the 6th item in by Backpack. I had a BIKE there, so I replaced it with Rare Candy. I went to Cinnabar Island and surfed up and down the right edge. I found nothing but Electrod over level 100 for about 5 minutes, but then my screen went blank for about 5 seconds. I found something that looked like a half eaten Kit Kat bar. Its name was all messed up, but it was over level 100 too. I ran from it and tried surfing again. I found something that looked like the same thing, only this one had the cry of Zapdos. It said on my screen MISSINGNO. APPEARED. I thought: That looks like the same thing I saw earlier. Before I battled it, I checked my items. I had 100 Rare Candies!! I decided to run from this one too, and duplicate my Master Ball.
The next day I made my Master Ball the 6th item. I found M, and caught it. I kept on surfing, and I found a Tentacool, only it wasn't facing me! My Charizard, Spud, wasn't facing the Tentacool, either! I got to thinking: Why would the game designers put this creature in the game? Then it hit me. It wasn't put in there. I later found out it only exists due to an error in the game program. Just because my pictures were messed up didn't stop me. I shut off my game and tried again.
I wanted to see what would happen if I nicknamed it. I heard that if you name it a Pokemon (I.e: Mew), it would evolve into it. It didn't work. My HOF, (Hall of Fame), though, had a Mew in it. It also had a bunch of weird stuff, but the weirdest one was that all over my screen, it said this:
This made no sense. I also saw something that said LYNX SUCKS. My name was Lynx, and Missingno. had said I sucked.
Missingno. had caused some problems in my game, and I took note of them:
Your graphics will be messed up.
Your game may crash (Thank God it didn't)!
Releasing it will still have your game messed up.
I had once heard about a guy who caught so many M's, that his game was messed up and he had to throw it out.
Since it is known Missingno. can only be found in Red and Blue, there is no way you can find it in Yellow, Crystal, Silver, Gold, Ruby, Sapphire, Firered, Leafgreen, or Emerald. But you can find it in Yellow somehow. This is what I think you have to do.
1) Don't battle the Gambler near the Underground Path
2) don't battle the youngster with the level 7 Slowpoke
3) Go to Lavender Town and Battle a chaneller. (Make sure she walks up to you)
4) go to the route with the Gambler you were supposed to avoid. I think M will appear (Or Mew)
Missingno. isn't the most famous Pokemon for anything other than messing up your game. It will, however, evolve. On Red and Blue, it'll evolve into Rhydon. On Yellow, it evolves into Kanghaskan. I am not sure if this is accurate, but it's the closest I can get. It won't matter if you name it a different Pokemon. It'll still evolve.
Theories on Missingno.
What would make the game designers put M and Missingno. in the game? Well, that is still a mystery. There are many mysteries surrounding it, and this is what I have to say.
Evolution- Why Kanghaskan and Rhydon? This is what I think. Missingno. is a Pokemon that's name is actually Missing Number, because it isn't in the PokeDex. The type is Bird/normal. In other words, normal. What Pokemon is slow and normal? Kanghaskan. When M evolves, it becomes Kanghaskan. As for Rhydon, I'm not quite sure on that one.
Why is it in there?
Missingno. is believed to be in the game as a game error, or as a purposely put glitch. 80% or more believe Missingno. exists due to a program error, and about 20% or less believe it was put there on purpose.
Missingno. has four shapes: An Aerodactyl fossil, a Kabutops fossil, a Ghost , and its normal shape. They are all Missingno., just a different shape. Their attacks may be different, but who's to say? Here's how you get them:
(These may not get you the one you want, so check the internet first)
Aerodactyl- when the 3rd, 5th, or 7th letter of your name is Y
Kabutops- when the 3rd, 5th, or 7th letter of your name is X
Ghost- when the 3rd, 5th, or 7th letter of you name is Z (I don't think the last one is correct)
This is one place you shoudl never
save in. To get access to it, this is what you do:
1. Go the the Safari Zone.
2. Exit, and when the guy asks "Leaving early?" say "No".
3. Go back in the SF
4. fly to Cinnabar, and when you hear DING DONG, you'll be back in the SF. Exit and you will be in Glitch City.
Don't send M or Missingno. in other games. Nothing will happen, but your game may crash.
A LETTER FROM THE AUTHOR
This is a simple run-down on the creature Missingno. This book should help you with finding it and what it can do. This book was very fun to make, and, as you can see, I know a lot about the creature (Bert note: Yes, I actually fucking went there). There are Websites that will tell you Missingno. These are your best bets:www.wikipedia.comwww.google.comwww.ask.com
These websites show great info on Missingno, and some even have multiple Links so you can learn more about it!
