Pokémon M can be found in Pokémon Red and Blue, which was developed by Game Boy. As the first installment of the Pokémon series, it was released in Japan in 1996.
“M” is a name shared by a limited number of glitch Pokémon found in the Generation 1 Pokémon games. It’s generally used to refer to the most common of these glitches.
Players who successfully capture “M” will continue to fight against another “M”.
Nicknamed “Cousin of Missingno” Pokémon M is often mistakenly referred to as Missingno. As one of the most popular glitch Pokémon, it can be found through the Old Man Glitch.
Catching “M” for the first time will result in the player unlocking “M”’s Pokedex data but actually obtaining a Rhydon.
Catching a second “M” will earn the player a perfectly normal Ditto.
“M” will also always appear at level 0 if the player didn’t choose a pre-made name and it can also appear at level 80 if a player’s name has an odd number of symbols.
Pokémon M can evolve into Kangaskhan, meaning it can evolve at any level. It is often the Bird/Normal type and it knows Sky Attack and two water guns.
With a Pokedex number of #000, Pokémon M has an altered cry of a Zapdos.
What glitches does Pokémon M cause?

The rise in popularity of the Pokémon brand once again can mostly be attributed to the release of augmented reality game PokemonGo.
Pokémon Red and Blue have been released in 2016 on Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console as a commemoration of the franchise’s 20th anniversary.
