I watched this https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=T9pHWEmQVrw and he said "porygon" I thought porygon was banned so pokemon couldn't use it becouse of the seizure incident. Yes, I know porygon are in some of the games but those are the games and not the anime.

Why did the guy say "porygon" in the episode!? I thought it was banned from the anime forever but not the games

    The episode in which it appeared was banned for giving children seizures. They didn't ban it from appearing or being mentioned. – Torisuda Mar 4 '17 at 6:29

    I'm okay with the question as framed. Its premise is silly but IMO nothing worthy of a downvote. – Makoto Mar 4 '17 at 23:52

No. It is definitely not illegal to say the word Porygon. You can also say Porygon2 and Poryzon-Z!

The debut of Porygon in the TV series episode EP038 resulted in a large population of children watching it to have epileptic seizures.

Unfortunately, the mistakes by the EP038 animators has lead to the digital Pokémon to not feature again in any episodes. It's only appearance, along with Porygon2, is in the Movie: Kyurem vs the sword of justice. But it has appeared in Manga and Games very frequently.

In fact, a third stage evolution of Porygon was added much later in generation 4: Porygon Z.
