Here's a Wikipedia link of a list & details of episodes of "Pokemon" that's been banned outside of Japan.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon_episodes_removed_from_rotation
The most controversial episode is "Denno Senshi Porygon" which rushed 685 Japanese children to hospitals due to red & blue strobe lights.

Believe it or not, you can actually find clips of that episode is on Wikipedia & YouTube for all the world to see.
So maybe it isn't banned at all (sort of).
I must have seen it about 10 times and nothing bad happened to me (except for a bit of a headache).
After watching years of anime & playing videos games, I think I'm immune to flashing strobes effects.
Brad mentions on the "Turkish Star Wars" review that he takes Tegretol for epilepsy.
I consider this to be a warning for Brad NOT to see that controversial episode himself.
In other words, VIEW IT AT YOUR OWN RISK.

I have all of the "Pokemon" VHS tapes in my collection.
One contains the episode titled "Tentacool & Tentacruel".
It was the first "Pokemon" episode to be banned in the United States after 9/11 happened.

Here's another clip of a "Pokemon" episode banned in the United States.
I can very easily understand why.

I don't see what the big deal is with that pokemon episode not being suitable for americans, it has guns! It makes perfect sense to be airing on american tv Twisted Evil

i'm sorry i can't stand pokemon. i tried to watch it when i was younger to see why people loved it. and i couldn't believe how bad and annoying it was. but to each their own i guess. if you like it that's fine. it just isn't my thing that's all.

I used to like Pokemon back when i was a kid and it got super popular(belive it or not it got huge here in puerto rico to). I outgrew it by the time i was in middleschool but i still find it kinda intresting home many controverseys this show had. I still play the oringal games every once in awhile though.

well it was HUGE here for a long time in the states. so at work about 10 years or so ago. they place had DISH so some of the peeps i used to work with were fans of the show. and so they'd put the cartoon network on which played it. and i believe it still does. and that's when i tried to watch it i gave up after like 5 minutes or so.

it doesn't bother me that a lot of my favorite cartoons were made in japan in the 80's. like say 'Transformers' i believe the original show. but when they brought it back a 3rd time. Generation 3. since i think it was in (1993) when we had Gen. 2 which was terrible honestly. i watched a bit of the reboot which i think started In (2002) wasn't it?

and i gave up after few episodes cause i got tired of the mouths NOT matching the people who voiced it. at least with the
cartoons in the 80's and 90's. you the mouths matched the words. they looked more american i guess you could. or did Japan only distribute them?

I haven't watched an episode of POKEMON in over ten years. I own the first two movies, which have their moments. I lost track of the series as I grew older. I think the last I can remember was when Ash won the Orange League tournament. I don't know squat about the new series, aside from the different voice cast. I think the original english voice of Ash was the same woman who voiced Sailor Jupiter on SAILOR MOON.

I still own all my Pokemon trading cards. My brother sold his off years ago, but I kept mine. Guess I have a rather nostalgic appreciation for old school POKEMON.

Here are images of one of the Pokemon trading cards that were changed by orders of the Anti-Defamation League.
The original Japanese version had a counter-clockwise swastika (a symbol for Buddism) that turned out to be extremely offended by the Jewish community in the United States.
