Those with epilepsy or other light-sensitive conditions may have to avoid the long-awaited sequel to The Incredibles, which debuted this week. The movie is "filled with tons of strobe/flashing lights,"
which could be dangerous to those who suffer from migraines, vision impairments, seizure conditions, vertigo (specifically flicker vertigo), autism, ADHD, and PTSD. Disney has asked theaters to warn patrons of such scenes, one of which lasts for at least 90 seconds.

So far, no incidents as a result of watching "Incredibles 2" have been reported. In 1997, 685 children were sent to hospitals in Japan after an episode of "Pokemon" flashed red and blue lights to animate a scene in which Pikachu blows up missiles in cyberspace. Nintendo’s stocks took a hit after the incident, which became known in Japan as "Pokemon Shock," and the show was taken off the air for nearly four months.
