M and Missingno do NOT mess up your game if you catch them. They only mess your game up if you SAVE with them caught. Don't save (or save and reset) and you'll be fine. If you're goig to save, just release the M/Missingno and you're still gonna be alright... --- "Owned by a Rat." ~ My friend on Final Fantasy XII.
Wrong. When you encounter M or MissingNo, garbage data is written to your save file (hence the lag when you encounter them). Most of the time there is no ill effects, but sometimes it DOES cause problems. If you play on Stadium you can see that happening. The "Saving" dialog appears when you encounter MissingNo. --- Will somebody please give George Bush a blow job so we can impeach him?
The one time I've ever had a problem with M OR Missingno was when my brother saved after he caught one of them. Other than that, I've never had a single problem at all. And I abuse the glitch every single time I play. --- "Owned by a Rat." ~ My friend on Final Fantasy XII.
