Just how rare is this virus!?

This is my second time catching Pokerus from a Wild Pokemon, except this time, all of my pokemon caught the virus.

I know how to keep it for later usage, but is the virus common, or extremely rare to run into? This happened a few weeks ago with my Platinum Version.

i really want to get pokerus someone help with this

I think the best way to save it is to get 2-3 Pokemon with pokerus and put them in the PC. Then once the pokerus from your party has gone away, you might be able to get it back from the ones in your PC.

Pokerus is actually very helpful, since it gives out double the EV's given to you by a pokmeon. I always keep at least 1 pokemon in my boxes with pokerus, since it never goes away there.

I actually got Pokerus on my original copy of Silver.

I was confused so bad what had happened, I got it around getting to the Lake of Rage and thought that I ahd done something wrong. ;p

If you really have a complaint, report it to a moderator or something. They don't know better yet if they are guests or have a mere 4 posts. No need to have a meltdown.

didn't read through the thread, your questions have already been answered

Guests, please refrain from bumping dead threads, it is irritating, and soon, I will go on a freak rant on you all

and no Tigra, Pokerus effects will last forever, there are 2 stages of pokerus, I will basically break down this lecture into 3 parts

How To Get It

Pokerus can be "caught" after multiple battles by your pokemon, and I don't mean 3-4, I mean after a while, such as 100-120 battles(around), catching a pokemon with pokerus in the wild is a 1/2000 chance however. You will be aware of Pokerus when you heal your Pokemon in a Pokemon Center, Nurse Joy will tell you that your Pokemon has been infected. Your Pokemon will now gain double the EV's from their battles once infected.

Stage 1

This is the initial stage. When your Pokemon has it, if you check in your Pokemon's summary, you will see "Pkrs" somewhere. This means your Pokemon is in stage 1. Your Pokemon at this point can spread Pokerus at this point to any and all Pokemon in your party, eggs excluded. This stage can be frozen by depositing your Pokemon into a PC Box and will remain frozen as long as it is inside the PC. EV gains are doubled at this point.

Stage 2

This is the final stage. This will be shown by when your Pokemon no longer has "Pkrs" in its summary and instead a small smiley face replaces it. Your Pokemon can no longer spread Pokerus. However, the double EV gains will remain. As long as your Pokemon has been infected by Pokerus, all the EV gains for it will be doubled.


-It is recommended to keep a Pokemon with Stage 1 inside a PC Box at all times to keep a way to spread the virus.

-Pokerus disappears upon the midnight of that day. If the Pokemon is infected at 5:06 A.M. it will pass to Stage 2 at Midnight. If the Pokemon is infected at 11:59:59 P.M. it will lose the virus at Midnight.
