The Master Ball bypasses the formula for capture in Generation 1, therefore it cannot miss.

Hope I helped!

Didn't they have like a 1/10 000 chance of missing because of a mistake or something? Or was this not in gen 1?
No, because it bypasses the formula. All Poké Balls can miss, however the Master Ball doesn't even take the formula into consideration, it just catches it.
But I have seen it said in multiple YouTube videos

No it is not. Master balls always hit the mark and have a 100% chance of catching the Pokemon
