ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY.......1997
An episode of Pokemon that aired in Japan induced seizures in 685 Japanese children.
Towards the end of this episode, Pikachu stops missiles with its Thunderbolt attack, resulting in a huge explosion of flashing red and blue lights.
The TV show was put on hiatus for four months after this......and that episode never aired again.
