I used to love this episode, but now I don't, because they don't have a computer virus as the main villain and only make reference to one. Sure, Team Rocket are the villains of Pokémon, but they could be working in cahoots with the virus, and that way both the virus and Team Rocket could co-exist. Only problem is, in Ash's explanation, there is a literal virus. Meowth does say humans and viruses are the same thing to the vaccine, but it's probably like the white blood cells in Fantastic Voyage Plots and viruses look like literal viruses, because the antivirus is a vaccine. This was 5 years before Swayzak and 4 years before the Phantom Virus, mind you. However, there was The Omega Virus, but that was a board game and I dunno if that was released in Japan. And there was ReBoot, which received a Japanese dub. Perhaps they could've based the virus off Megabyte, but this show was meant for young children and I doubt they'd want a "scary" virus like I prefer.

The part you are probably looking for is at 19:05. Obviously if you're prone to seizures I wouldn't look at it though.

Everyone knows where they were...
When they first heard they showed a cartoon in Japan that gave kids seizures!
