To be fair, we're never gonna see all Generation II Pokemon in the anime, because that would entail a Porygon2 appearance. All other Generation II Pokemon have appeared in the anime, though. That said, some of them could stand to appear more often. The only time Qwilfish has appeared outside of Johto was a cameo in Hold The Phione. A cameo so unbelievably brief that Serebii's episode pictures missed it. Seriously, the anime needs more Qwilfish. Ash needs to catch a Qwilfish. Qwilfish for Iris, Qwilfish for Cilan, Qwilfish for Jessie, Qwilfish for James, even a Qwilfish for Meowth! QWILFISH FOR EVERYBODY! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!!
That made my day XD.

I've never understood why they couldn't just appear without the seizure inducing effects.
Same here... considering that said effects weren't Porygon's fault.
Yeah, I never understood that. Why is Porygon blamed for the seizures when it was Pikachu's attack that caused them?
The most likely reason was that screening out Porygon was the easiest way to make people forget. Pikachu, though he was the one at fault, was synonymous with the series and many people could have many other memories of Pikachu that did not include strobe flashes. Porygon? That was its episode debut. The only memory people would have of it...would be the "Pokemon Shock" phenomenon. It was more convenient to phase out Porygon than Pikachu (not to mention probably the better idea).
