It's my first post here, but I have been doing research on Missingno. and I was looking for a decent Pokemon research MB where I can ask this question:

When you catch Missngno. and look at his type, it doesn't say water/sky, it says water/BIRD..! Why?!?

Is there a bird type?!?

I've always wondered that myself.

Reason (IMO) that it says that: the trash that creates it comes from that infernal Weedle, which is in itself screwed up with the type department. So take the influx variables for types, and subtract the limitations of the game from that, you get the flying/bird mixup type that MissingNo./'M is.

Also, if you understood my babble, then you have too much time on your hands.


PS, SKY type?! And you wondered if there was a BIRD type?! Holy Yamikarasu!

Ooops, I guess I mixed those two types up. Sorry. ^_^

Another thing about Missingno. is that it has more than one hexadecimal number; also, it seems that is number is completley irregular.

Missingno.s are pokemon that were deleted in the process of developing the game; the game cannot find the requested pokemon and switches to default (#000 - Missingno.). 'M?
It is only a glitch. Don't confuse 'M and Missingno....'M never existed, but Missingno. did.

One of the missingno.s appears right next to
Raichu...could that be the infamous Pikablu?!?

"deleted in the process of creating the game?"

How about "don't map to anything, and so pull random data out of RAM, data that was never intended to be referenced as a pokemon?"

I think that the "Bird" type was the predecessor to today's Flying type. At least from my point of view.

any questions?

No can do. If that was the case, we wouldn't be having
54 Pikachu
55 Raichu
56 Missingno.
57 Missingno.
58 Dratini
59 Dragonair, we'd have

54 Pikachu
55 Raichu
56 Dratini
57 Dragonair

See? The blanks would not even be there if no pokemon number 56 and 57 would exist.

They don't, but they DID.

(BTW, those numbers are hexadecimal data. It is not the same as pokemon number.)
