A pokeseizure is an epileptic seizure, induced by the flashing of red and blue

that occured in episode 38 of the anime Pokemon. The original airing of episode

38 saw the seizures of 700 japanese adults and children as a result. Since then,

the episode can only be found on the internet, often with the frame-rate reduced

on the infamous scene.

Often this scene is referred to as, "SEIZURES EVERYWHERE"

Specifically, the scene involves the protagonists trying to rescue the

geometrically inclined pokemon Polygon. A hovercraft/rocket/spaceship/thing

fires missiles at the heroes. In responce, pikachu shoots a thunderbolt at the

projectile, causing it to explode. The main scene that was responcible for the

seizures was one where satoshi(ash) and his friends are standing near an opening

and the majority of the frame is filled with alternating blue/red flat color


The same effect (FLYING COLORS: meant to create dynamic flashing/explosions) is

utilized a few times in the much more-acclaimed anime, Evangelion, a few times,

but those instances are far less likely to cause seizures do to the brevity and

slower frame rates of their animation.

This episode has been all but removed from media distribution but, due to the

internet, has been viewed by many a nostalgic/foolhardy otaku.

In non-Epileptic viewers the scene has been know to caused head aches,

especially loops of the scene with music.

Other banned/unaired episode of the series include #18 and #19 as well as #23,

due to sex, violence, and 9/11.
