The user claimed that a recent update to the game caused a "bright white flash" to appear when they tapped on a Pokemon. The user noted that they have epilepsy, and the repeated flashes triggered the symptoms that often preceded a seizure. The post received over 4,400 upvotes as other players commented on the issue, with some also noting that the game had caused similar pre-seizure issues or other issues such as migraines.
