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.

It's very rare. From What I read It's chances are around the same region as a shinys

It's pretty rare since it makes your pokemon slightly stronger.

It's pretty rare, but it's something I could care less about. I don't plan on raising my own team for competitive play, but just using one I already have. lol.

Shiny > Normal > Pokérus.

Haha, this Shiny Salamence I got off of the GTS in Diamond had Pokérus. It was obviously hacked though, since you'd have to get EXTREMELY lucky for that to happen.

Not really if he got It shiny them levelled up to Salamence then put him in a party with Pokérus. Thats one way It could have got It on the shiny Salamence.

What are the odds of even that happening? The odds of it being shiny and having Pokérus when caught are 1/16384000.
