Porygon Caused Seizures
Pokémon took the world by storm in the 1990’s with their mega-hit GameBoy games and television show. One particular episode known as “Electric Soldier Porygon” aired in Japan, and gave over 600 children seizures with its flashing strobe lights. It caused such a panic that Tokyo pulled Pokémon from the television schedule for four months. The United States and other countries collectively agreed to never air the episode.
