Default MISSINGNO.: All Questions Answered

OK, I can only do this with a mod's help. Please lock this thread, and sticky this in th RBY section, so ppl would once and for all stop talking about missigno.

Note: The Missingno. glitch works only in Pokemon Red and Blue. You can only encounter Missingno. in Yellow Version by altering the Mew Glitch.

Heres how Missingno. works.

The first part of the cheat involves you to go to Viridian, and talk to the old man who teaches you to catch pokemon. So, your name is changed for the duration of THAT ONE BATTLE to "Old Man". But, where does your actual name go?

Well, it goes into what the game creators call... The pokemon you can meet in the current grass. You see, every time you enter a new grass area, this program is updated by the grass with the possible catchable pokemon. So, the program only updates when you enter a new area.

So, the game creators thought it would be smart to code your name as Pokemon and Levels, because there are no wild Pokemon in Viridian City, and your name data would be overridden with the proper data when you enter a new area.

Your name is encoded as HEX code. Hex consists of two-digit numbers bearing a value from one to sixteen. Observe:

0=0
1=1
2=2
3=3
4=4
5=5
6=6
7=7
8=8
9=9
a=10
b=11
c=12
d=13
e=14
f=15

See, sixteen numerals (programmers like to use Zero as a numeral)

So, for example, HEX code a2 would be 162. Or, a(10)x16+2=162.

So, the first letter of your name is converted to the first Pokemon being able to meet and the second by its level.

For the pokemon equivalence to the letter, use this chart:

A: Golduck
B: Hypno
C: Golbat
D: Mewtwo
E: Snorlax
F: Magikarp
G: Missingno.
H: Missingno.
I: Muk
J: Missingno.
K: Kingler
L: Cloyster
M: Missingno. ('M)
N: Electrode
O: Clefable
P: Weezing
Q: Persian
R: Marowak
S: Missingno.
T: Haunter
U: Abra
V: Alakazam
W: Pidgeotto
X: Pidgeot
Y: Starmie
Z: Bulbasaur
a: Missingno.
b: Missingno.
c: Missingno.
d: Ponyta
e: Rapidash
f: Rattata
g: Raticate
h: Nidorino
i: Nidorina
j: Geodude
k: Porygon
l: Aerodactyl
m: Missingno.
n: Magnemite
o: Missingno.
p: Missingno.
q: Charmander
r: Squirtle
s: Charmeleon
t: Wartortle
u: Charizard
v: Missingno.
w: Missingno. (KABUTOPS FOSSIL)
x: Missingno. (AERODACTYL FOSSIL)
y: Missingno. (GHOST)
z: Oddish

Note: If you want to try the glitch, DO NOT use one of the special characters in your name. If you do, you might end up facing a Trainer. You will not be able to get out of the match, and eventually one of their Pokemon will be a glitch that can freeze (and possibly erase) your game.

For the level, its the numerical position of the letter + 127 for uppercase or 159 for lowercase (so, A is 160, b is 129, etc).


also, here are the others, independent of upper-lower case rules, and NO ADD-ONS!!

( 154
) 155
: 156
; 157
[ 158
] 159
e 186
' 224
PK 225
MN 226
- 227
? 230
! 231
<Male> 239
<MonetaryP> 240
<TimesSign> 241
. 232 or 24289-
/ 243
, 244
<Female> 245
<Numbers> 246 + number
At the end of every name, the game inserts an 80 (HEX 50) to designate "End of
Name".

Example:

Test #1- Name: PIKACHU
Letters 2, 4, and 6 (levels):
2: I = 9 + 127 = 136
4: A = 1 + 127 = 128
6: H = 8 + 127 = 135
Letters 3, 5, and 7 (species):
3: K = Kingler on chart
5: C = Golbat on chart
7: U = Abra on chart
Combining the numbers, the name “PIKACHU” should yield L136 Kingler, L128 Golbat, and L135 Abra. Test it out; it does.

BUT, theres a problem. You see, there are WAY less pokemon than the possible HEX-codes. So, the other leftover pokemon are what were called "Missingnos". Get it, Missing-Number?? So, they are the pokemon that are put into the grass program when your letter has no adjacent pokemon.

So, how can you ALWAYS meet a missingno??

Like I said, the program always puts a HEX code 50 at the end. And, that just happend to be a missingno code. So, no matter the name, you will ALWAYS get a Missingno.

Now, Fly to Cinnabar. When you Surf on that little strip of land, there is no grass-program in there, but its possible to still meet pokemon. So, you meet your namesake pokemon. Neat, huh?
This can also be used to help catch Kangaskhan. Use that strip right after the Safari Zone, to be able to use normal Pokeballs and attack it.

ANYONE WHO CAN UNDERSTAND THIS, USE IT WELL.

IF YOU CAN NOT, THAN ITS TOO COMPLICATED FOR YOU ANYWAYS

Have fun, everybody.

Source: a long time of trying to figure out my Blue version, hacking, and LOTS of deleted games.

ALSO
A thanks goes out to Pokemon Trainer Sarah for getting me a letter->pokemon chart. Thank You!!!

I thought your game would mess up if you tried Missigno.

It's good of you to write a guide but if lots of people are going to be using it maybe you should quickly go through and check your spelling ^^

Also, you should post a warning for people who try to do the Missingno. cheat on their games because it can stuff up their game.

Oh, and here is a proper list of HEX codes, taken from http://www.trsrockin.com/ The best site for all Pokemon glitch-related things ^_~

A: First off, look at letters 2, 4, and 6 of your name. Those letters will determine the levels of the Pokemon you can run into. First, take the NUMERICAL equivalent (A=1, B=2, etc.) of those letters, and add 127 for uppercase or 159 for lowercase. In addition, the symbols are as follows:

( 154
) 155
: 156
; 157
[ 158
] 159
PK 209
MN 210
? 239
P(monetary symbol) 240
x(times sign) 241
. 242
? 245
Also, at the end of your name, the game inserts an 80 (HEX 50) to designate "End of Name". Because of how the variables are used, this means that one of the levels your Missingno. (or glitched 'M name) will be is always L80.

Q: Species determined by name? Cool! I'll get a new name and try that so I can get Mew WITHOUT SHARKING!
A: Hold it right there. While it is determined by name, the lowest number assigned to a character (other than the 80 that is assigned to the "End of Name" character) is 128, for a capital A. In EVERY variable that designates a Pokemon, Mew is assigned the number 21 (HEX 15). If you can make the connection, that means that NO name you enter will result in Mew being a possibility. The low numbers like 21 represent glitch characters that are not available for naming anything and can only be found with a Shark. For convenience, here is the table of what Pokemon will appear for each letter. Letters 3, 5, and 7 are used to determine this:

A: Golduck
B: Hypno
C: Golbat
D: Mewtwo (BIG OPPORTUNITY HERE!)
E: Snorlax
F: Magikarp
G: Missingno.
H: Missingno.
I: Muk
J: Missingno.
K: Kingler
L: Cloyster
M: Missingno. ('M)
N: Electrode
O: Clefable
P: Weezing
Q: Persian
R: Marowak
S: Missingno.
T: Haunter
U: Abra
V: Alakazam
W: Pidgeotto
X: Pidgeot
Y: Starmie
Z: Bulbasaur (Get all the starters without trading!)
a: Missingno.
b: Missingno.
c: Missingno.
d: Ponyta
e: Rapidash
f: Rattata
g: Raticate
h: Nidorino
i: Nidorina
j: Geodude
k: Porygon
l: Aerodactyl
m: Missingno.
n: Magnemite
o: Missingno.
p: Missingno.
q: Charmander (Get all the starters without trading!)
r: Squirtle (Get all the starters without trading!)
s: Charmeleon
t: Wartortle
u: Charizard
v: Missingno.
w: Missingno. (KABUTOPS FOSSIL)
x: Missingno. (AERODACTYL FOSSIL)
y: Missingno. (GHOST)
z: Oddish

Note: If you want to try the glitch, DO NOT use one of the special characters in your name. If you do, you might end up facing a Trainer. You will not be able to get out of the match, and eventually one of their Pokemon will be a glitch that can freeze (and possibly erase) your game. Also, species from 3 goes with level from 2, species from 5 goes with level from 4, and species from 7 goes with level from 6.

Q: How about some examples?
A: Okay.
Test #1- Name: PIKACHU
Letters 2, 4, and 6 (levels):
2: I = 9 + 127 = 136
4: A = 1 + 127 = 128
6: H = 8 + 127 = 135
Letters 3, 5, and 7 (species):
3: K = Kingler on chart
5: C = Golbat on chart
7: U = Abra on chart
Combining the numbers, the name “PIKACHU” should yield L136 Kingler, L128 Golbat, and L135 Abra. Test it out; it does.
Hope that helps you out. ^_^

If you fight and manage to beat Missingno the sixth item in your pack will be doubled(good for master balls and rare candies untill I found out that their are hiddden things that rare candy doesn't boost and in the end leaves your Pokemon weaker than most others at level 100) Also I know Missingno will show up on the RIGHT side of the Seafoam Islands though I don't know if the Pokemon thing works there. Also your game won't glitch unless Missingno is CAPTURED. If caught Missingno can screw up your Graphics. It's attacks are WAter Gun( I think or some other water attack) And Sky Attack twice.
