Pokemon causing seizures?

Episode 18:

Dennō Senshi Porygon

"Dennō Senshi Porygon" (lit. "Digital Soldier Porygon"), although most commonly translated as "Electric Soldier Porygon") was aired in Japan on December 16, 1997, around 18:30 Japan Standard Time (09:30 UTC). The episode became infamous for reportedly causing more than 600 epileptic seizures in young viewers. As a result, broadcasts of Pokémon in Japan were halted for four months. Since the seizures, Porygon, and it's evolved forms, Porygon2 and Porygon-Z, have yet to appear again in another episode.

- from Wikipedia.

to see the scene go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-Ybd0Yby68

[NOTE: this has a very small chance of giving you a seizure (the youtube screen is very small, and it's bad resolution), but I'm can't make any guarantees.]

personally, it just gave me a headache >_<

this episode is now banned worldwide. watch the scene, what do you think?

Isn't this news too old?

Remind me, when was that episode again? Oh right, December 1997! What date is it today? That's right, May 2008! That's like 11 years apart. =.=;;
