What... IS that? by warupua What... IS that? by warupua
Medium: Oekaki

Drawn Jan. 30th of '06.
I had this revelation last year... I'm one of those kids who still likes Pokemon, see. Back when I was younger, I was a Gameshark freak with my Blue version, doing all sorts of dangerous things. x:

I was also a Missingno. fanatic, you know, that famous glitch from R/B/Y? Man, I had this one Missingno., he was amazing.
One morning, I think I was hallucinating or something but I was like... 8 at the time, so maybe I was imagining, but anyway... I heard Missingno.'s cry outside my window MULTIPLE TIMES. And, thinking it was a sign from God or something, I turned on my gameboy and my save file was gone. D;
It was traumatizing, but... okay, it's funny now that I'm remembering it.

So anyway, I made a design for him 'cause I love him too much. His stats say he's Bird/Normal, so...! I MADE HIM A BIRDY. :3

that story is really freaky....if that happened to me I would be the same way, and freaked out in a way.

i wish missingno would be the victini of X and Y!

looks like Ho-Oh! :meow:
G4rdevoir Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2013
I'd rather say a fusion between Ho-oh and Fearow.
EeveePikachuChan Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, Maybe

MissingNo. *-* Omfg cutie cute! I never met him but I know almost everything about it :3 +Fav!
Agrotera-Thanatos Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It was Missingno. taunting you! D:
MalamiteLtd Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
It's like someone mixed Pokemon with Dr. Seuss. The end results are very cool tho. :3
Chaos-Master Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah, Missingno., how I have missed you. Even if you DID erase my Red, you bastard. But anyway, this is a great rendition of it!
MegaCameron Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
awesome rendition of him

If i catch a Misingno. in D/P Platinum, do my game will crash? because i want one!
Chaos-Master Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
It's only available in Red, Blue, and Yellow, and eventually it eats your save file.

Heh, I love this design for Missingno.
tenko72 Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2009
I like your design. I always saw it as a bird too.
Anthro7 Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
*late* lol That's awesome! Good job, dude!
pnpmario Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2009
[link] It seems Missingno. can transform into a little boy too. Probably in the same way Latias was able to?
warupua Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2009
Oh yeah, Missingo.'s party icon changes every so often... occasionally it'll look like the stay-puft marshmallow man. D:
pnpmario Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2009
Oh god, that makes me think of the Ghostbusters movie...Missingno.'s terrifying.
Ice-blood93 Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2009
ooh! nice depiction of missingno.!
Chargal4 Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2009
Aww, he's cool! *offers him a cookie*
Serebi Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2009
Missingno makes a pretty bird. xD
Magnetohydrodynamic Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2008
Nice, but I couldn't connect it to Missigno. before you mentioned it. Maybe it should have been more glitchy-looking? But, ah, it is your design, you do whatever you wish with it.
warcrafter12 Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
Ah, I remember Missingno. Except I knew to never catch it. I used it to get a hell of a lot of master balls and and rare candies.
MysticalCreatures Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2008
nice, but he kinda looks like murkrow
hellview666 Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2008
This would so work as a MissingNo XD

I love it, it's like Satoshi's vision of Ho-oh at the start of his journey, but for the gothkids. Ahaha.
Pidgeot Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2007
Gah, you heard MissingNos cry? Thats seriously freaky, but I love this....thingy 8D It's kinda like a different version of Staraptor in a sense.
Charshi Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2007
dude, I love your interpretation of Missingno. XD it's hella awesomecore. My friend sent me a video of the glitch and I was like, 'NOSTALGIA!' so then I started wondering what missingno would look like. lo and behold, dA answers my prayers. XD;

prolly gonna do my own version sometime..
Phazonaddict Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2007
Awesome :D
Love it :)
eternalsaturn Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Heh, great design for him, way better than mine. ;D He looks suitably evil here. I can imagine him being a Ghost or Poison type for sure.

Yeah, Missingno freaked me out too the first time I saw it o_O I imagined it as something HORRIFYING under all those random pixels. XD
nicknards Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2007
:wow: awesome design. When I first saw this I thought this was a picture of some Zelda boss or something.

I remember I was told to keep feeding a missingno. rare candies and it would evolve into a togepi. It was pretty cool because even though it didnt turn into a togepi it evolved into a kangaskhan that knew how to fly.
TheMoonman Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2007
Awesome design and just plain awesome to begin with. I bet everyone would want this thing to be Dark/Flying, I for one think it should be our first Poison/Flying type =)
trogdorboy Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
zubat already did that
TheMoonman Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2007
oh, woops.

Zubat's so common nowadays I just sorta forget he exsists.
cayaa Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2007
Ohmy, he's totally awesome! I wish your Pokemon were real pokemon!
Robot-Lust Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2007
First off, love missingo and the design. Also, this thing could kick ho-oh's ass.... e_o
rupted Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
I like him birdy. he looks about as dangerous as that glitch sounds.
n3ko Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2007
LOL. Very creative. Dang, coincidence or not.. that's kinda scary. D:

I did catch one once too.. but it died when it came out of the ball. > >;;;

Nice design though! I wouldn't have thought of a bird like that. =)
PurpleMuffin Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2007
that is a clever idea! Bird type yeah I remember that
RauniKai Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2007  Student Digital Artist
I think MissingNo. looks cool that way. If it actually looked like that, then maybe nintendo COULD use it as an official pokemon ^^;
winglessdragon Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2007
whoa......that's kinda...scarey...xDD i wish i didn't read that dsfklflskj

well anyway THIS picture is one of the pictures i liked most from you, the watercolours is so amazing. your style wins so hard. x_x
Code5 Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2007
Wow, that's one crazy experience. Dude, I think your Pokemon game is haunted! 0_0

Well, paranoia aside, that is one bitchin design of Missingno. At first, I actually thought it was an offical pokemon you drew there.^^ So yeah, bloody fantastic.

And don't worry, many older people still like pokemon these days. There's like a grown community or something.
Hinatta Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2007
design pokemons for nintendo pplz plz.
Mitzuke Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2007  Student Digital Artist
Ah, I had a Missingno once. I don't remember what it was...water maybe? I don't know why but I thought the bird was from the Lion King or something. XD
