Ok here's the deal:
I've heard and read many things about "Missingno." All I really want to know is about catching him. Can you catch Missingno. And put him in your PC? What if you catch Missingno. But don't put him in your PC? What happens if you do? PLease answer these questions and any others relating to Missingno. And it's mystery!

No never catch Missingo even if you are not going to put him in your pc it still coruptes your game. Missingo is a basic virus for your game please do not catch it. I once caught all 150 Pokemon including Mew,then I caught Missingo the next time I tryed to load my game it said no data so what ever you do don't attempt to catch it

Missingno is created by using a cheat device and something to do with the way the info was stored for each pokemon.

It has to do with Hex code... 256 slots allotted in the code for Pokemon, but there were only circa 150 Pokemon in blue and red... So the other numbers are other things... Bits of landscape, so I am led to believe, and other data... Which are referred to as missingno.

And it has to do with the name you chose at the start (when you are stuffing about looking for missingno) as to what missingno will be available to find in your game.

The rest of what I know is a bit sketchy...

There is a lot of info found around the place that refers to missingno and how to find and catch them, but it is seriously dangerous and can stuff a perfectly good game up.

Also, just for reference, newer versions of Pokemon, that had more than 256 Pokemon in them don't use hex code for storage... As far as I have been told, so they use a different system, thus negating missingno.

To find Missingno, talk to the person in Viridan City that teaches you how to catch pokemon. Then go and surf on the eastern shore of Cinnibar Island. DO NOT CATCH AT ALL COSTS!!!!!!!!!! REPEAT DO NOT CATCH IT WILL CORRUPT YOUR GAME!!!!!!!! Kill it instead and your sixth item in your items will increase so much that the game cannot read the number of items in your bag.

Ok, what you do to get to Missingno. Talk to the man in Viridain City and make him show you how to catch a pokemon. Fly to Cinninbar Island and surf along the right side of it. You find stuff like L:123 Marrowak, L:132 Starmie, L:128 Missingno. Don't catch them! But if you beat the Missingno you get whatever is in the 6th slot. You can catch it but don't.(Already said it but second warning). It screws up your game and you can't do anything on it or save or start a new game. I haven't witnessed it but I heard it does that.

Do not catch Missingno, if you catch him you will see him as a "Bad Egg" in your bag. If you caught him, release him into the wild quickly, if it don't let you, just hope he doesn't mess up your game.

Well as you read above on how to find him. And what not to do. I will add a bit.

Besides that you can find him in victory road if you do what they said above. After you beat him off the shore of cinnabar island head to Victory Road and just run around in there if you get in a Pokemon battle run from it. After a couple battles you have run from, I have no idea how many, you will run into a ditto that is named missingo. You can catch it. It's lv 1.

Once caught it will become Lv. 100. And it will randomly tranform into Missingo during battles. Pretty much instant win and the whole multiple item thing will happen. The only problem is that sometimes when you log on your ditto will have become an egg. In other words you have to repat this over again.

Don't listen to these guys, go ahead and catch him. He is actually VERY helpful and can learn almost all the moves. He is also very powerful. The only real problem is the Elite 4 thing on your PC is messed up, nothing else sever really happens. Trust me, I use Missingno. all the time and nothing has happened to my game. He does tend to mess up the way your Poke'mon look, but it doesn't really do anything to mess up your game.
Hope I Helped

never catch missingNO AND NEVER HAVE A Bad egg! bad egg freezez you game but doesn't kill your game.if you find missingNO IT WILL HAVE NO HP AND IT WILL BE LV.0! IF YOU RUN INTO IT IN POKEMON DIAMOND/PEARL/PLATINUM IT WILL BE A SHINY. YOU NORMALY NEED THE AR CODE THAT MAKES YOU GO THROUGH STUFF AND THEN YOU RUN INTO HIM. NOTE: if you nickname him a pokemons name example: Mew.summary him and he will be a mew.

Step 1: Encounter
