Like the shinys, it's pure luck.

Pokerus boosts EVs.

But what does it do? I heard somewhere that it's a beneficial virus. Is that true?

Yes,it is a benefic virus,because doubles the acquired EV.


But it's too rare,and when you have one affected by the Pokčrus,he heal himself and acquire an immunity.

Which is why once you get it, you put it in the PC and infect everyone else in there too =D

And it doesn't run away, last I checked, if you leave it in the PC

Yeah, I've got some that have been in stored in the PC, in an infected state, for years. They never get over it.

Just to make sure I keep the infection around (and can pass it to friends' carts) I keep a whole box of infected caterpies. I also infect all my legendaries and store them infected, since I never use them after I catch them. They make good infection pools.

I've been really luck with pokerus. It's been on every cart I've ever owned except one (including r/s/fr/lg/e). I recently sent that one to somebody else, with a couple infected pokes in the PC.

If only I was as lucky with shinies

lol, I think you might have used up your luck for the next 40 years pokemon wise XD

Although you could just bargain for them. Tell your friends you'd trade them pokerus for prices as low as 5 shinies! :OOOOO

Well, your kid friends anyways :p

I was afraid of that! I had some good friends in the small town I was living in, and we traded pokes almost every weekend. I have pokes from like 45 different trainers (G/S/C) But now that I've moved to another city, I only know two othere people into pokemon, and only trust one of them not to shark his pokes. Bummer.

Post Re: Poke'rus Question

when i got the virus i was scared my pokemon were dying. when it started passing to everyone in my party i was going nuts cuz i didn't know what it was or what it does to them. eventually they started losing the virus and i was so realieved. finally, when only one more poke had it my girlfriend read that it was good and what it actually does so i ran and put the poke in a box to keep him from losing it. about 20 pokemon of mine had the virus, didn't make use of it and will now never enjoy it's benefits. that is my tale.
