Computer Soldier Porygon[]

More than 635 Japanese children were hospitalized because of epileptic seizures on December 16, 1997. It was determined that the seizures were caused by watching an episode of the Pokémon anime called Computer Soldier Porygon, which contained bright explosions with rapidly alternating blue and red colors. In subsequent research, it was determined that the strobing light effects could cause some individuals to have epileptic seizures even if they have had no previous history of epilepsy.
