No seizures here!

It's too bad it caused them, i really liked this ep (lol X-wing)
all that red and blue flashing seemed really unnessesary though. :P

I loved this episode, it's my favourite so far. I didn't get a seizure but I'm wondering what the difference between Porygon and Porygon-Zero are.

I understand why this episode was banned, it must have been scary for the little kids

Awesome episode, I loved it! Yup, no seizures here either! :D
New ending song, better than the last one.
I also liked the segment at the end of the episode which was shown right before episode 39, 4 months later.
If you don't like me, acquire some taste

so, funny story. when i watched this episode (you can check my pokemon completed date on my list) i wasn't diagnosed with epilepsy. i didn't have a seizure. i just watched it again, after being diagnosed. didn't have a seizure. it should be mentioned that even if you're epileptic, just because you see some flashing lights doesn't mean you will have a fit. only certain types of epilepsy would be affected. for example, i'm not photosensitive.

uh, it wasn't banned because it was scary, it was banned because over 600 kids had seizures while watching this episode (pretty obvious which scene it was).

Obviously watching on an LCD / LED TV has the effect different from what you see on a CRT TV from that time (1990's). Flashes and your FPS are much more offensive to the eyes on a CRT TV.

To be honest the lights did end up making me feel a bit funny, can't imagine seeing this on an actual TV. They were far more intense than I remembered. Too bad they couldn't have re-edited this episode before it got globally banned because the concept for the episode is great.
