"You missed the Pok?mon" is just one of the many messages that appears whenever you fail to catch a Pok?mon, not something that the game says when you are unable to catch a Pok?mon. When trying to catch legendaries or similarly hard-to-catch Pok?mon (Chansey comes to mind) the same message may appear. The "capture ratio" (or whatever number is used to determine how hard a Pok?mon is to catch) of MissingNo. and other Glitches is glitched, much like all of their other stats, making them ridiculously hard to catch with anything but a Master Ball. It can be done, though.

If you have a Master Ball, putting it in the 6th slot in your item list will multiply it when you encounter MissingNo., allowing you to catch it and keep your Master Ball. If you don't have one, put the Ultra Ball in the 6th slot and multiply it. You may go through 100 Ultra Balls or so before catching it, but you eventually will.
First to discover and name the following glitches:
* Super Glitch
* ZZAZZ Glitch
* Q Glitch
* Level-100+ Glitch Evolutions and Moves

Missingno. seems to jump up and down levels. In Pokemon Yellow my Ghost Missingno. would level down.

If it was a Ghost Missingno. you caught, you can use it to clone other pokemon's stats.

I like to remind people that Block Missingno. has bad stats, except for a somewhat over-average attack stat. :P

You'd be better off with a Ghost or Fossil.

Give Missingno. a lot of items that boost the defence and speed stats (can't remember what it is called) and get more badges.
