    Default also some facts too.

    1)Nintendo got slapped with the blame after this episode caused the seizures.

    2)this episode set guinis book of world records for most convulsions caused by animated show

    3)The seizures caused from this episode were used by the Simpsons in the episode "30 Minutes Over Tokyo.

    and last, There was originally going to be a New Year's Eve Episode of Pokemon. It was never shown, not even in Japan! Electric Hero Porygon caused this.

    also I have seen the screenshots too I would imagine how bright it is!

    Also in South Park >> I just thought i'd add.

    I've seen the scene on the 'net, but Computer quality =/= TV quality so whoever says "I saw it on the internet and I didn't feel anything" thats because its different on a TV >_>;

    YAY!! The seizure episode!

    Munchlax eater: Actually the seizures weren't 'used' in the show. They created a completely different cartoon and used it to poke fun at the fact that a Japanese cartoon caused seizures because there have been other shows to cause seizures, not just Pokemon.

    Default oh yeah

    Oh yeah I have also seen the seizures on sonic underground ep "virtual danger"
    it did'nt effect me though and I think its the same as the porygon ep.

    EDIT:
    porygon was never on the "poke rap"
    well acually he was on the poke-rap in the indigo saga.

    I hope this isn't breaking the rules:

    You can watch the entire episode on youtube.com (search porygon and scroll down a bit - it's in two parts). - And even with english subtitles! Really great!!

    It really is a great episode - really original! The red and blue lights are pretty intense, so I wouldn't recommend you seeing it - if you absolutely will, then go back a little from the screen or close your eyes a bit when they're coming (and they come A LOT in part two!).
    I do understand why those kids got seizure - but it is a really, really great and unique episode! One of my best, in my opinion!

    The seizure scene only hurt my eyes a little, but then again, the screen was small and probably edited. There really were alot of unnecessary flashing lights in this episode. Other then the seizure incident, the episode was fantastic.

    - The PC was given the biggest role in the entire series, and we were introduced to a cool computerized world.

    - Porygon was given some cool abilites, like the fight with Porygon Zero (Tr's Porygon).

    - Liked the finale, when the missle went through the portal and blew the mansion to smitherines!

    Same here! The seizure part when Pikachu blows up the missles hurt my eyes a little bit!

    Ditto.I don't see why this episode had to be banned all together. I would have just replaced the flashing with a bright light, maybe put a warning before the episode.

    - Porygon was given some cool abilites, like the fight with Porygon Zero (Tr's Porygon).
    Porygon's Conversion was very cool. And how he keprt changing into different weapons (Spear, sheild, hammer) was also pretty neat. Too bad we will never see him in the anime again, because he has some real potential.

    Well they didn't ban Porygon, they just banned the episode for the flashing lights.

    Yay! I saw this over the summer, and the episode was so entertaining. Too bad the episode will never be dubbed anywhere else and the shame of the flashing lights did to the kids in Japan.

    But too bad they never made another Porygon episode, not even Porygon2. Its a shame how this episode so good won't be seen many people, and why Pokemon anime series was so good at back of the day.

    Really? I had heard Porygon was banned as well. For one, he hasn't really been back in the anime (a couple of cameos, but only a few seconds worth). Maybe it was just an assumption I heard.

    I miss porygon, but I think that the ban on our technological friend should be destroyed.

    Lol watched this episode on YouTube out of curiosity.

    No, it didn't give me a seizure, but yes, the sudden flashing lights did make me
    stare at the computer and I kind of had a slight headache for a few seconds.
    But that was all.
