Glitches are funny things. Funny as in odd, not as in comedy though doubtless it is sometimes.

Sometimes they ruin games, other times they make games (did you know combos were originally a Street Fighter glitch?) and sometimes the game makers try to forget them but they become part of legend.

Fun Fact, all the glitch effects were made with one Missingno. jpeg.
Though I think I may have inadvertently made our comic into SBaHJ using it.

Aww man, this brings me back. In late elementary school, I performed every glitch I could find with the Gen I Pokémon games. Missingno., 'M, Glitch City, the Mew glitch, the truck in the harbor... *sigh* Good times.

Oh, and by the way...

So, did anyone else feel like they should have moved the master ball to the 6th backpack slot?

Ahaha! Hooboy, Missingno. is just too great.

And Giganerd, if you haven't noticed, I sent you a guest comic on TCoD, since you put the links to each comic on TCoD every week (and I don't know how to contact anyone on ComicFury), so I'd figured you'd see it there.

Thanks, DarkAura! Server seems to be down at the moment, but I'll add it to the cache as soon as possible. Thank you so much~!! ^_^

If DFC is still having problems you can send it to us by getting a Comic Fury account and private message it.

The glitch Pokemon have always fascinated me. It's weird that one form of MissingNo will give you over 100 of a certain item in a certain slot of your bag, where another will completely drain the cartridge's internal battery.

I wonder what would've happened if Dr. Gardevoir was 'infected' from the sneeze. Is that how a Missingno. would make more of itself?

I can think of two glitches, one that made the game (and made itself an icon for the game), and one that made a change in the genre, both from Minecraft 1) Creeper model was a glitched model for the pig, 2) Floating Islands, Notch (creator of Minecraft for those who don't know) couldn't get the world creator to not make areas that seemed to fly (mostly in Extreme Hills biome) but people liked it so he just left it

::puts on Science glasses::
The Creeper was created because of a coding error, not a glitch. Basically, Notch made a typo and swapped bodyLength with bodyHeight on a pig. Typo, not hole in code or exploit. Still fun.
When are creepers fun? (Guest) edit delete reply
