1. That the supposed "donuts" in the PokeMon T.V. show are actually riceballs? People in Japan eat rice -- and lots of it, too.

2. That the Pokemon comic book outsells any other comic book, including X-Men? This feat has been acomplished by selling the comic at toy and video stores.

3. That after Pokemon was released, sales of Nintendo's GameBoy system jumped 249%!

4. Even though Jessie and James act like they're all cool and old, they're both actually only 17 years old!

5. Contrary to the beleif of "PokeMon" being a japanese word, it's not. The word is actually an amalgram of the two English words: "Pocket Monster". The name was changed because people felt the name was too close to an existing property called "Monster in your Pocket".

6. That the maximum amount of points you can receive in Pokemon Snap is 17,378,000.

7. That when Poliwag evolves into Poliwhirl, its swirl changes direction.

Electric Soldier Porygon: "Dennō Senshi Porygon" (でんのうせんしポリゴン ,Dennō Senshi Porigon?, literally "Computer Soldier Porygon", although most commonly translated as "Electric Soldier Porygon") is the thirty-eighth episode of the Pokémon anime's first season. It was first broadcast in Japan on December 16, 1997, and has since not aired anywhere else. In the episode, Ash and his friends find at the local Pokémon Center that there is something wrong with the Poké Ball transmitting device. To find out what's wrong, they must go inside the machine.

The episode is infamous for using visual effects that caused seizures in a number of Japanese viewers, an incident referred to as the "Pokémon Shock" (ポケモンショック ,Pokémon Shokku?) by the Japanese press. Six hundred eighty-five viewers were taken to hospitals, but only two people remained hospitalized for more than two weeks. Due to this, the episode has been banned worldwide.

After the shock, the Pokémon anime went into a four month hiatus, and it returned on TV Tokyo in April 1998. Since then, the episode has been parodied and referenced in cultural media, including an...

Contrary to popular belief, the Pokemon TV series isn't how the craze was started. It was actually started with the Game Boy game called "Pocket Monsters" in Japan in 1995. It was an instant hit and it eventually got it's own TV series of the same name in April of 1997.

The TV series itself was a huge hit in Japan, at least.....until the infamous December 16, 1997 incident which left about 700 some people sick and forcing the cancellation of the series until the following April (1998). It has continued onward with no further incident.

Also in 1998, 4Kids Entertainment, with Summit Media Group as it's distributor, picked up rights to dub and release the show to the rest of the world. It made its debut in September of 1998, and because it was in syndication at first, started out slowly for some of its timeslots were odd.

In November, Pokemon Red and Blue were simultaniously released for the Game Boy platform....and at the height of the Christmas shopping season. Sales of that (up in the millions) made it the highest selling game ever for the platform.
