I was able to see this whole episode, and actually the real original version with the controversial lights that actually did cause kids to go to the hospital. This was the 1 and only Japanese episode that I got to see live on tv. Unfortunately it just had to be this 1... I have epilepsy so I was 1 of those affected.
Woah, really? That must have been scary.
I saw this episode on the computer some time ago, and I had a little anxiety about watching it at first, even though I knew that watching the flashing lights on a computer screen wouldn't be as bad as watching them on TV.
But I watched the episode with no problems. My sister watched it with me and was perfectly fine, and she has a rare form of epilepsy.
Even though I can't understand Japanese, I thought this was a pretty good episode. I love hearing Meowth's Japanese voice, it's so funny.
