Today I was training my Roselia and Misdreavus for SP.ATK and Speed Effort Values, when I noticed Roselia started to glow green.

Then I went to the pokecenter and the nurse said my pokemon was infected. I got kinda scared, then checked my entire party.

Everyone was infected! it all said PKRS on the status of all them.
Then searched online and found out it was a good virus that doubles Effort Values gained.

So far I've followed directions and infected every pokemon I have and deposited some of them in the stasis PC for future use.

o: has anyone gotten it. I thought something bad was gonna happen lol.

I've never caught Pokerus on my Pokemon before, but I want to so badly just to say that I got it.

I've had it traded to me, but other than that, no.

EDIT: Wait! I remember my Togepi in Gold had it. xD

I got it (I think) when I migrated all my emerald mons to heartgold. Was going through the elite four for some training, and thought i just should heal my mons if they didn't got full pp and such. And then the nurse said my mons had it o.O

The first time I got pokerus was when I got a level 1 glameow at the GTS.

If I remember right, I got it from a wild Roselia that I'd caught on my Emerald game (that I'd borrowed).

Now I only infect my Pokemon with it if I want to, 'cause I got along the thinking of "If this Pokemon of mine was real would I really want it to have it?"
So I'd pretty much stopped it altogether. Though I do keep a few of my unwanted Pokemon (with my Roselia stored in the PC) with the active PokeRus on it. ^_^

Haha, that's funny. If you think about it being along the lines of being real I'm sure you'd want your pokemon to have it regardless. xD
It's kind of like being extra hyper when having Pokerus. It doesn't do any harm to your pokemon and in fact just boosts their power but only lasts for so long.


Anyways, the first time I got Pokerus was in my Fire Red. I don't remember which pokemon had it but my first thought were pretty much the same. I was like what the hell?! A virus?! What is that supposed to mean?! I don't remember how I found the answer out but I was relieved once I did. xD

I remember that one of my pokemon in Pearl got inflected with it. I was a bit surprise when the nurse told me but thought it was cool. What I did afterward was inflect a Shinx with it and take it out of the box everytime I need to inflect EV training Pokemon with Pokerus. I think for my Platinum I either traded somebody from Pearl with Pokerus to the game or I found it by accident.

I've never got Pokérus, I've also never seen a shiny.

My Pokémon never really got Pokérus legitimately. xD I did use AR for it once, but that was two or three years ago, and I probably don't have those Pokémon in my PC box anymore, sooo, I don't think that should count. xD
I really want my Pokémon to have Pokérus, but, I don't want to trade with others who has Pokémon infected with PKRS though, since taking the easy way out can ruin the fun of the game, and that's one of the reasons why I've stopped using my Action Replay.
I think I need to battle a lot of wild Pokémon in order to get it, but that can take a very long time. d:

I found Pokérus while playing my Silver at the same month I found a shiny Donphan. (December 2010).
Yes, Silver. Not SoulSilver.

I've found it twice.

First was in my Sapphire, after battling. The second time was in HeartGold, again, after battling.

HeartGold is really lucky for me - I found a shiny Tauros on accident. As a bonus, I was going through a "Tauros fad" at the time too XD

I've been playing since one of my kids gave me Red in Japanese. Long time. I've got at least one of all the games, and I've had pokerus on every one of them. I thought for a long time all carts have it, because all of mine have.

On the other hand, I've only had, in all that time 2 non-game shinies -- and such cool ones -- a tentacool :rolleyes: and a MAGICARP :crackup:

And the worst part with the magicarp was one of my cousins EVO'd it.

I was so mad. Commonest in-game shiny ever. Duh.

I found it in Diamond while I was in Mt Coronet xD Surprising since I hadn't found a Shiny yet...

My brother also found it in Silver version a long, long time ago. Back then there was really no info on it around which inspired me to start researching it myself. I actually thought it might have been some kind of weird glitch at first. xD

I encountered it the first second I played SoulSilver, luckily enough :D :D The first pokenurse I met told me my Pokemon got the mysterious virus ^^ Later on, when I got into EV training, I learned myself everything about it :) Ask me anything if you want to.

In general, NO, Pokerus doesn't harm your Pokemon in ANY way. It only doubles every EV it gains, so basically you're pokemon gets some stats more EARLIER ON then normally.

Also, it can come in very handy when EV training your pokemon :biggrin:

That's quite interesting. In my entire gaming lifetime of pokemon, I bumped into 3 shinies and 1 pokerus in total. Ironically 2 of the shinies were geodude (the last was a magikarp >.<). o_O

It worked out, since I wanted a pokerus pokemon in my SS game when I killed that graveler. Now I'm spreading that pokerus like it's the plague.
