If you thought that the re-releases of the classic Pokemon games wouldn’t be as great as the originals, you were dead wrong. In addition to the incredible gameplay, the Virtual Console versions of Pokemon Red and Blue have retained the famous MissingNo glitch.
For those of you who didn’t have an awesome childhood, MissingNo is a bugged Pokemon could be encountered after following a certain set of steps involving, flying, surfing, and old wise men. Created through programming short-sights involving name length in localized versions of the games, the unintentional Bird/Normal type Pokemon would appear as a glitched block, a ghost, or a fossilized Kabutops or Aerodactyl depending on the position of letters in the player’s name. After it was caught, the game would do all sorts of wacky things. You can see the MissingNo glitch performed in the re-released Pokemon Blue down below.
