Default Re: What is Pokerus, and how can I get It

Effect: Doubles any and all Effort Values infected Pokemon recieves upon defeating an opponent. STAT EXP in G/S/C!

Time limit: 24 hours. Storing in PC pauses time limit, but uncertain to whether storing in PC resets time limit. It has to reset it... i've had infected pokes i was training for weeks, and, a few times i forgot i left it in my party and they were there until 11:30pm from the morning/afternoon so the total time they were in my party would have been like 35 hours or something.

Infecting: Keep infected Pokemon in party while walking/battling. Other Pokemon will get infected.

Thanks to Ashkelon, I have Pokerus on many Pokemon, but have yet to begin training them. Infected Pokemon include Sneasel, Deoxys, and others I intent to EV train. If you don't know about EV training (i.e. Manipulating in-game mechanics to strenthen your Pokemon and increase selected attributes) then either learn about it, or don't bother wishing for the Virus. PokeRus is useless otherwise.
just some extra thoughts...
