Speaking of leftover ideas from a former topic, here's this!

Edit: The previous strip was also posted today, so in case you were unaware, you shouldn't be now.

Took you long enough.

April 21st, 2013, 4:03 pm

....I don't get it
o_o maybe i'm just stupid

April 21st, 2013, 4:06 pm

@Tijopi11: MissingNo multiples the first item in the inventory by 108.

April 21st, 2013, 4:14 pm

@Rochwell: I'd say I was right on time.

@Tijopi11: What dragonriderjh said. Although its more common location is surfing outside of Cinnabar, but I figured one could fish it up as well.

April 21st, 2013, 4:41 pm

You noobs, it's the 6th item in the bag.

April 21st, 2013, 5:05 pm

@anon: Does it really matter? :/ Missing No. multiplies an item by a lot.

April 21st, 2013, 5:36 pm

Wild MISSINGNO. appeared!

Strictly speaking, Missingno. can't be caught by fishing... but who cares! Missingno.!! AWWWWWW YEEEEEAAAAAAH!!!

April 21st, 2013, 5:38 pm

@dragonriderjh: Actually, it's the sixth item, and it gets multiplied by 128.

April 21st, 2013, 5:38 pm


@sonicstar4453: for anyone who wasn't aware of this glitch and wanted to recreate it, yeah it matters.

April 21st, 2013, 5:50 pm

There needs to be a squeal to this where Red does this glitch right to get 108 Nuggets but then reality breaks.

April 21st, 2013, 6:00 pm

godamnit silph scope go away!

April 21st, 2013, 6:07 pm

I think that he could donate them to a charity for homele- oh wait, they don't exist in pokemon because their entire world is perfect without problems or trouble other then stupid teams who pin everything on battles (Lavender town not included)! Economy! Nope! Politics! Nope! That mysterious blue flying pokemon! Hold the presses stop everything now we have something worth caring over!

April 21st, 2013, 6:08 pm


God I just sounded like a troll

April 21st, 2013, 6:09 pm

@IG_42: I hear that. For me, it was the Poké Flute, I believe. On the other hand, if you cloned the Helix/Dome Fossil or Old Amber, multiple Omanyte/Kabuto and Aerodactyl!

April 21st, 2013, 6:22 pm

Wow, everybody is wrong on MissingNO.. MissingNO. makes the 6th item increased by 128 due to a fucked up data buffer. However, it fails if the number is 128 or above. Also, fun fact, there's 39 different types of MissingNO., all of which work the same, but they may look different. Instead of MissingNO., they were supposed to be other Pokemon that were scrapped for <insert reason here>.

April 21st, 2013, 6:33 pm


I didnt know that misingno had that effect. I need to read up on it...

April 21st, 2013, 6:54 pm

It makes sense that I didn't get this one; I played first gen but I was always too scared to catch MissingNo. I didn't want to risk glitching my game. :P

April 21st, 2013, 7:57 pm

Wait, I didn't leave that comment! ö

April 21st, 2013, 8:29 pm

@Mundius: how interesting.

April 21st, 2013, 8:46 pm

@Dragoniteguy: I used to really love MissingNO. as a kid. For some reason, major flaws like these made me happy and interested in them. They still do, because it's a game of its own.

April 21st, 2013, 9:42 pm

@Mundius: I knew that... just phrased it wrong.

April 21st, 2013, 10:23 pm

last time he got a bike with the Nuggets

April 22nd, 2013, 5:18 am

@Snailcall!: It was killing him that caused the item multiplication. I'm not sure if catching him did it either. Fighting and killing had no lasting harmful effect on your game, but catching was known to sometimes screw it all up.

April 22nd, 2013, 6:48 am

Should have been Master Balls.

April 22nd, 2013, 12:08 pm

ehehe that's a good one. People who don't get it is clearly to young or new to Pokémon. Having been spending a lot of time with Pokémon Red myself, I find this simple but hilarious. Right in the childhood ;)

April 22nd, 2013, 2:28 pm

@dragonriderjh: 128*, not 108.

April 22nd, 2013, 11:58 pm


It doesn't really matter that much how much missingno multiplies with the 6th item, since you get 99 of it in inventory as maximum anyway, or did they change that in Heartgold Soulsilver? o-o...
Very funny strip, keep up the good work.

April 23rd, 2013, 12:16 pm

On the plus side, he'll be more than ready next time he runs into a Rhydon.

April 23rd, 2013, 12:52 pm

@Rochwell: The thing in the third panel is Missigno who when encountered increases the number of items in the 6th Bag slot by 128, the joke is he had a Pokemon doll in that slot.

April 23rd, 2013, 8:26 pm

Love this, been waiting for this comic to appear for a long time now.

April 23rd, 2013, 9:57 pm

@dragonriderjh: Actually, it multiplies item #6 :P

April 24th, 2013, 6:42 pm


hey, what if shelder bit slowpoke on somewhere else it's body. like, if it bit slowpoke's arm, would it evolve into slowdrill? comedic potential is... evident, but in low quantities

April 24th, 2013, 8:25 pm


Actually you can run from Missingno. and still get the item increase. Also, your entire Hall of fame record shows teams of only Missingno.

April 25th, 2013, 7:09 pm

Super Rod: Check!

Pokemon with Surf: Check!

Master Mall in 6th slot:...I knew I forgot something

April 27th, 2013, 10:53 pm

@Missingno. Master: 128 because of the subliminal nintendo 64 messages

April 29th, 2013, 9:13 am

@Random4infinite: Strictly speaking, the Hall of Fame can be changed to display more or less anything. Missingno. is a distinct possibility, yes, but so is pretty much anything in the Pokédex from Bulbasaur to Mew. And even other Glitch Pokémon, like .4, A, LM4, and h POKé.

April 29th, 2013, 1:51 pm

not quite

@dragonriderjh: it multiplies the item in your 6th slot, not first.

May 1st, 2013, 12:24 pm

haha as someone who made a profit from MissingNO by raising pokemon to lv 100 with duplicated rare candies while at school makes me love this strip all the more

May 1st, 2013, 5:24 pm

exclamation point?

I noted the lack of the exclamation point that appears over your head when you hook something on the fishing rod... maybe it would have looked silly here, but I at least would have appreciated it.

May 1st, 2013, 7:09 pm


@Missingno. Master: It gave me all Missingno. every single time I tried it as a kid. I wonder if that was just my bizarre luck at work again. I remember one time, when I forgot to switch the Rare Candies and ended up with 128 Old Rods.

May 2nd, 2013, 8:11 am


@dragonriderjh: Thanks a lot Greg!

May 2nd, 2013, 8:44 pm


oh i thought he bought those to get away from any more missingo...

May 3rd, 2013, 1:40 pm

@Bumbazzle: Seriously? All I could find was a level 128 Nidorino that I couldn't escape from, and would knock my pokemon out every goddamn time.

May 3rd, 2013, 10:44 pm

Not quite.

@org: The number of times that a MissingNo. duplicates an item is not a reference to anything at all. MissingNo. is an error handler and a glitch, so it's not going to be making any shout-outs because it isn't supposed to exist. Rather, it produces 128 copies because data is stored in powers of two. Most variables in the first two generations of Pokemon were stored using eight bits. Each bit represents multiplication by two, with the eight typically meaning positive or negative. Two to the seventh power is 128.

May 4th, 2013, 12:54 pm

Missingno.'s exact effect

Missingno.'s exact effect is to increase the quantity of the 6th item in your bag by 128, unless it is already 128 or higher. Therefore, 1 becomes 129, 2 becomes 130, etc.

May 7th, 2013, 8:20 pm

This is so funny, I've read all the other comics on here and love Pokemon! Keep on writing, you're amazing! :3

May 7th, 2013, 9:25 pm

@Atomic: hello

May 8th, 2013, 2:17 am


this took me back and made me laugh. great artwork.

May 8th, 2013, 9:27 pm


Why you no post new comic strip!

May 9th, 2013, 2:06 pm

@Alg: I see what you did there...

May 13th, 2013, 1:43 pm

I protest

The guy is Red from FireRed, where the MissingNo. glitch doesn't exist. He's also fishing, whereas when executing the MissingNo. glitch, you had to Surf. (LOL Just being a douche, but the strip actually made me laugh.)

May 14th, 2013, 3:02 pm

First seeing this, I thought he was pulling out pokedolls to make missingno. go away. still funny, but not as good as the actual joke. I never used missingno. myself, so i didn't remember it's multiplication effect until i read the comments.

If it had been a different item it would have been clearer for me. potions perhaps? maybe nuggets?

May 19th, 2013, 4:02 am

It can corrupt.
It can enrich.

May 19th, 2013, 7:40 am

Makes sense

The comic wasn't showing up, I had to refresh several times...

Darn you Missingno.!!!!
