Pages : [1] 2

Just curious. People post if they do, and, if they do, how they caught it.

I got mine from my little bro who caught a Ralts w/ the PKRS on Emerald, spread it around, and then let me upload. Got mahself some rare Pokemon that way, too.

28th April 2009, 12:03 AM
I got it from a Graveler on my Pearl in Iron Island

28th April 2009, 12:13 AM
I have it on multiple Pokemon because I wanted to spread it, but if I remember right it originated from a wild gloom on Pokemon Diamond.

I got Pokerus by catching a Mime Jr. in the Trophy Garden in Pearl. I then spread it and traded some infected Pokemon over to my Diamond and Platinum.

28th April 2009, 7:29 AM
I've found about 4 strains of pokerus. Twice in the 3rd gen games a the other 2 in my Diamond and japanese import.

28th April 2009, 7:41 AM
I have so much PokeRus it isn't even funny....

I think I got it from a wild Hippopotas.

28th April 2009, 8:18 AM
When I was on the GTS i felt trading some random pokemon, i saw a vulpix which i already got, and just traded it for my elekid then i realised it had peokerus
Lucky Me.

28th April 2009, 8:18 AM
In my first game on pearl, I caught a finneon in twinleaf lake, fishing. In my new game, I have alot of legendaries who used to have pokerus (the event kind, probably fake) that were traded to me for simple rattata and pidgey

28th April 2009, 8:44 AM
I caught Pokérus from a wild Nosepass in my Sapphire game. That was my first brush with the disease, so that was kinda neat. I don't think I have it anymore, though.

In Diamond, my first ever GTS trade landed me a Blissey that was infected with Pokérus, and I've managed to keep it alive for quite a while now. God bless boxed Pokémon XD

28th April 2009, 10:33 AM
I myself do not have pokerus, but some of my pokemon have it... It is soooo usefull for EV training!!!

28th April 2009, 10:37 AM
I got a Japanese Teddiursa off GTS that had it.

pokemon special
28th April 2009, 10:47 AM
Nope,Have't ever got a pokemon with it-_-

28th April 2009, 11:00 AM
I was training for the E4 when I found that my sudowoodo had it and have managed to keep it alive for now. Hope to be able to make much more use of it.

Anyone 4 Buttons?
28th April 2009, 11:06 AM
I've never caught it, because I play safe. My pokémon, however, the dirty swines that they are, have had it spread through as many as possible, from a Roselia I caught in Diamond within the first week of owning it.

28th April 2009, 11:10 AM
I had it in pokemon emerald but i had no idea what it was at the time and i didnt know which pokemon caught it because by the time i realised my team was infected with it, even pokemon in the PC had it.

I cant think of a name
30th April 2009, 8:05 AM
I got mine off the GTS from an infected Breloom, I love it because now it takes only about an hour to fully EV a pokemon.

30th April 2009, 8:11 AM
OH! Real quickly!!

About 95% of Pokemon infected with Pokerus were given Pokerus through a cheating device.

Ok, so if you have a Pikachu with a hacked Pokerus, is the Pikachu legit or not?

*I just got more LEGIT Pokerus in Valley Windworks!

1st May 2009, 12:49 AM
Like all other diseases, I got it over the Internet.

Through a Timid Nature Shiny Drifblim to be exact. A suspiciously legit Drifblim...

My Gorebyss had it in Emerald, but I have no clue what I got it from, even at that time. I think it was from a Solrock.

1st May 2009, 1:55 AM
I Had It In Ruby.
I Think It Was Zigzagoon Who Was Infected. I Didnt Even Notice Until All My Pokemon In The PC Had The Little Purple Dot.

1st May 2009, 2:53 AM
I got it in FR, I think, like, really early into the game. But I didn't know what to do with it, so it went away. That might've been before I reset the game, though...

1st May 2009, 4:31 AM
Yeah. i had it.
I got like 3 pokemon w/ pokerus off of the GTS, but they were hacked because:
Hatched at MysteryZone, or caught at the Pokemon league for a freakin Draipon, and a egg hatched a full week before it was obtained.
And i got one that was legit, but i released it because i wouldnt trust it.

1st May 2009, 4:46 AM
never had it, but I don't battle wild pokemon enough to find it I guess

3rd May 2009, 1:44 AM
Yes, I have it. I got it from a close friend of mine, but I think that I also may have got it off a random pokemon years ago and just didn't notice it.

3rd May 2009, 10:07 PM
I managed to get it somewhere in Turnback cave when still playing through the storyline from something in there (I wasn't really paying attention). I just know that when I was leaving my ;094; had it. Since then I have spread it around so that I can utilized it when EV training.

3rd May 2009, 10:16 PM
I have a Bagon I got from GTS, it has Pokerus. I don't know how to spread it.. Help?

3rd May 2009, 10:23 PM
i got it from a trainer on this website and eversince and since i am a breeder i get certain pokemon and use it on them to make them the way i want them to be and to get them really strong

3rd May 2009, 10:31 PM
I have a Bagon I got from GTS, it has Pokerus. I don't know how to spread it.. Help?

I usually spread it by placing a poke with pokerus in my party with other pokes that I want to spread it to and then battle a few times and before you know it the others will contract it. To keep it I just place a poke or a few of them that have it in a pc box, since as long as they stay in the pc they won't loose it and you can spread it at another time. This way I keep it to EV train with, making it much less of a pain.

3rd May 2009, 10:34 PM
My brother gave it to me.>.> No, seriously, he traded me a Pokemon with it at the start of my Pearl and I infected all my Pokemon with it.

Elmi101: You put the Pokemon with Pkrs next to the Pokemon you want to infect and do some wild battles. Your Pokemon should have it after the first 2-3 battles. Hope that helps!<3

15th May 2009, 5:16 AM
.....*sigh* yes... i am pokerus positive that damn monkey

15th May 2009, 6:04 PM

A couple of my Diamond and Platium Pokemon have Pokerus as well.

I got it with my turtwig XD

16th May 2009, 6:33 AM
if i remember right i traded some kid a 10ANIV Celebii for it, it's taken over alot of my pkmn so i can really say who had it first. Makes EV training a whole alot easier.

16th May 2009, 12:47 PM
I had it on my pearl. I got it off someone's uxie I got of trade.

16th May 2009, 5:17 PM
I got it from a wild Pokemon in Pokemon Ruby last week. I didn't realize until I went to heal my Pokemon.

Omastar ftw!
16th May 2009, 5:20 PM

16th May 2009, 5:21 PM
I got it from something called a Bad EGG on sapphire. as soon as Hollyoaks the espeon caught it, he was put on Pearl.

16th May 2009, 5:23 PM
No, but I do have Swinub Flu.

18th May 2009, 12:19 AM
I wish i had the PokeRus Virus that would help me so much!

Trainer Emily
18th May 2009, 4:53 AM
Had it since last year, from GTS.
And I let the rest of my Pokes get infected, especially the useful ones like the ones with good IVs, legends, etc...

18th May 2009, 5:10 AM
Yup. I have Pokerus. My bro. gave it to me via trade. =P

18th May 2009, 2:08 PM
Yep, I got it from a wild Seedot in Ruby. And I still have the Seedot. (Now a Shirtry)

18th May 2009, 2:52 PM
A friend gave it to me. Then less than a week later I got a Spiritomb off GTS with it as well.

19th May 2009, 3:47 AM
Got it through a trade.

mrrrrrrr KENNEDY
20th May 2009, 11:13 PM
Caught it off Iron Island. Also got it off the GTS

20th May 2009, 11:29 PM
Got it several times by myself, and a few from the GTS

20th May 2009, 11:54 PM
I've never had it. Been playing since Sapphire, and I've never had it.

21st May 2009, 12:09 AM
Yep I got it from a trainer. At least in R/S/E...now the Rus is in the freeze box or already in the 4th generation.
My first pokerus appeared in G/S and I was really shocked as the nurse told me of little animals crawling on my Poki...

21st May 2009, 12:15 AM
I've had it since Ruby, I've caught few poke with it just in the last few days.

21st May 2009, 7:51 PM
I must edit, now I have pokerus ^^

I don't know when or how, but my japanese charizard got it, and now I spread it over all my pokemon :)

21st May 2009, 8:03 PM
Yes. I got it from a friend.

21st May 2009, 8:26 PM
I have PokeRus on Pearl, after I got it from a wild Graveler in Iron Island.

Miles "Tails" Prower
21st May 2009, 8:32 PM
I don't have it, but my Pokemon do. In Platinum...

21st May 2009, 8:40 PM
Got it from a Solrock I caught in Emerald...Then I sent it over to Diamond...

26th May 2009, 7:50 AM
I found mine near Snowpoint City

26th May 2009, 8:29 AM
After a few years of not having it, I gave up looking and had a friend give it to me.

30th May 2009, 6:56 AM
I think I got it from a wild Shinx while trying to find a shiny.

30th May 2009, 7:06 AM
I got mine the day i started diamond. I got it from a wild geodude as i was about to talk to a girl in oreburogh mine. then she said that there was actually pokemon that were shaped like rocks, and if i could belive it. coincidence, no?

30th May 2009, 7:14 AM
im not sure what pokemon it was, i just kno i got it prettyy early on in my Sapphire Version. by the time i knew i had it, my whole party and most of my pc boxes had it.

30th May 2009, 7:33 AM
I traded it from the 3rd gen, Iwas lucky I got it and freeze it per box-storing^^

30th May 2009, 10:39 AM
I can't remember from which poke I got it from.

But how can you spread the pokerus among your other pokemon?

30th May 2009, 8:01 PM
I got Pokerus for the first time on Pokemon Diamond. I was just training at the time. I can't remember what Pokemon I defeated that had it.

30th May 2009, 8:02 PM
I can't remember from which poke I got it from.

But how can you spread the pokerus among your other pokemon?

Pokerus can spread to other Pokemon if you put the infected Pokemon in your team, adjacent to other Pokemon. It'll eventually spread to them while you're battling. AlLso, Pokerus doesn't spread in the PC.

30th May 2009, 8:04 PM
I got Pok&#233;rus first on Diamond, and it was my Staraptor IIRC who first caught it. I then spread it to as many other Pok&#233;mon as possible.

Mercury Lamp
31st May 2009, 3:13 AM
I got it from a Piplup i got at the GTS.

31st May 2009, 3:14 AM
yeah cause i migrated from emerald and they had pokerus

Sir Aaron
31st May 2009, 3:22 AM
Of course! I got it in Ruby and had no idea what it was at first.

31st May 2009, 3:41 AM
*Shakes head* I don't have Pokerus.

I have a few Pokemon that do though. Also have lots that had it.

31st May 2009, 3:44 AM
I got it from a friend's Abra. Most of my pokemon now have it.

31st May 2009, 1:47 PM
None of my pokémon have ever had it on Sapphire, FireRed or Pearl, but I'm sure one day they will. I can't be bothered to trade with someone else to deliberately get it, though. *shrugs*

Edit: I have it now. Did an item trade, and the pokémon I was sent had active pokérus. ^^

31st May 2009, 1:51 PM
I've managed to catch it on Emerald, Pearl, and now on my Platinum

31st May 2009, 8:35 PM
I was training my Donphan at Iron Island & when I got out it had pokerus
now I've spread it to all of my pokémon ^^

6th June 2009, 8:44 AM
i got one when i catch a octillery in my diamond, near the pokemon league (it's NOT in front of the pokemon league building itself)

Ze DreamGirl
8th June 2009, 2:01 PM
My pokémon got it in Pearl...I'v transfered it to Platinum using my Shaymin as the vector...

8th June 2009, 2:11 PM
I got while training in the forest of... I can't remember the name...

8th June 2009, 2:27 PM
I first got mine from a Japanese Regice that I traded over GTS.

8th June 2009, 3:10 PM
I need ANY pokemon with pokerus! Willing to trade x

8th June 2009, 3:22 PM
i had it in my sapphire, but not anymore

8th June 2009, 3:33 PM
I got a gengar with pokerus from Wi-Fi

8th June 2009, 3:36 PM
Yeah from WiFi...a few Pokemon in my PC have it so I can spread it.

8th June 2009, 4:04 PM
I got mine right after I entered the cave where Spear Pillar is located (I can't remeber the name right now). I was rasing my new Piplup so that I'd have a good water type for the rest of my first play through. I came back to heal, and it gave me the message. I just about freaked out. But yeah, I've got like 10 pokemon in each game with it, just to make sure I don't lose it.

8th June 2009, 4:38 PM
I do indeed. I caught it on Ruby back in 2006 and transferred a few infected Pok&#233;mon to Diamond.

Rogue Striker G
8th June 2009, 4:46 PM
Eving training my Quilava in the Old Chateau and a ghastly gave me it.

8th June 2009, 4:51 PM
I got it from a 10anniv Latios that I got from GTS.

8th June 2009, 4:59 PM
*cough cough*


8th June 2009, 5:07 PM
I originally got Pokerus on my Seviper in Emerald. I've been spreading it to my other Pokemon in Platinum ever since.

8th June 2009, 5:11 PM
I caught it quite a few times. I have a infected Mightyena in emerald in the pc at the moment.
I will transfer a Pokemon with it to platinum when i need it.

8th June 2009, 5:48 PM
Yes, I imported it to Pearl from Emerald, then caught it again in Platinum, then got it from a Skorupi on the GTS about half an hour ago.

8th June 2009, 5:56 PM
Got it from a Feebas I traded for over the GTS around a year ago on Diamond. I don't think I've ever found a wild pokemon with Pokerus, though.

8th June 2009, 6:38 PM
Yep, I have it in Diamond and Platinum.

10th June 2009, 11:10 PM
i got mine from a friend

Escape Reality
13th June 2009, 4:44 PM
i got it from someone who traded me a charmander with it, and then i just spread it around to a lot of pokemon. i always keep a few whose pokerus hasn''t disappeared in the PC incase i want to spread it around some more, since is disappears after 24 hours, i think. ;)
though it's only in my diamond, so i think i'll spread it to my platinum, when i feel up to it. ;)

13th June 2009, 5:02 PM

13th June 2009, 8:31 PM
I got it from a trade on GTS but I didn't know what it was...now I have it spread throughout my boxes:D

26th June 2009, 6:55 PM
I got it from a traded regirock :P

26th June 2009, 7:03 PM
I got pokerus from a wild Seedot in emerald, since then i've spend in to others. it's funny though.. i have it, but i haven't been using it for training... guess i'm too old school lol

26th June 2009, 7:05 PM
Yes my partner gave it to me

Well, here is a tragic story about PokeRus:

My Charm Ralts has it, and it will not come off, meaning that my collection is ruined.

Yes I have PokeRus :/

The Flash
26th June 2009, 7:06 PM
I got a shiny Ho-oh off GTS, then I spread it faster than the swine flu to everybody on my team, he still has it and so does an entire box. Its called the QUARANTINE BOX.

26th June 2009, 7:10 PM
I got pokerus from a wild Seedot in emerald, since then i've spend in to others. it's funny though.. i have it, but i haven't been using it for training... guess i'm too old school lol

same here....

26th June 2009, 7:12 PM
Used to have it on a Japanese Chansey I got from the GTS.. Spread it to my whole team. Then, my game broke so I don't have it anymore. :(

26th June 2009, 7:27 PM
I got it on Pearl from a wild Graveler in Iron Island. Spread it to Diamond and Platinum too. Kinda wish I had it in 3rd gen =(

26th June 2009, 7:45 PM
I had it way back in pkmn silver lol

Then in diamond i got to the pokemon center at the E4 building and nurse joy told me my pokemon were infected. Since it was victory road it could have come from anything i fought in there. Now my spare wormadams have it as i was evolving burmies when i had infected team memebers so they hold it for me and i take them out when i'm ev training ^_^

My boyfriend got it from a GTS heracross.

26th June 2009, 8:34 PM
No, i've never gotten it in any of my games :/

26th June 2009, 8:40 PM
My Pokerus came back from when a friend at school gave me a Pokemon that had Pokerus from his Ruby version. After that I migrated that Pokemon to my Diamond and lots of my Pokemon are infected. After this I chose one Pokemon that had Pokerus and sent it to Platinum.

26th June 2009, 8:52 PM
I got it from a random bibarel i met. spread it around before boxing and EVing.

26th June 2009, 8:58 PM
My Ampharos caught it first... then my Feebas, which evolved into my mighty Milotic, then my Manaphy, and then it infected my Empoleon O_O

26th June 2009, 9:07 PM
Yup. My Empoleon caught it. :P

28th June 2009, 3:52 AM
i do (i transfer it from emerald)

I<3 You
28th June 2009, 4:11 AM
My Chimchar(now monferno) had it.

28th June 2009, 4:13 AM
i got it from an ariados, from the 3rd gen safari zone, that i sent over from emerald.
i have a PC box full of pokemon w/ pokerus now.

28th June 2009, 4:17 AM
I caught it from a Wild Starvia or Gloom can't remember which. But anyway now my Pearl has almost all of my pokemon infected with it.

Team Magma Admin Honey
28th June 2009, 4:26 AM
I'm not sure where I caught my first Pokerus was, but I think it was in Victory Road, in Sapphire.

When I was battling What's-his-name-with-green-hair's Gardevoir.

Joe Vega #4
28th June 2009, 4:43 AM
I first got Pokerus in the Sky Pillar in Sapphire, but I thought it was bad, so I restarted it.

My sister got a Chimchar with Pokerus off the GTS, so I had her trade it to me and spread it to a few of my Pokemon.

29th June 2009, 10:42 AM
I received pokerus through a trade,
but i think it's awesome for when I EV train and stuff

29th June 2009, 8:21 PM
Got it today, when i caught the last pokemon for my team on Diamond, Snover :).
i played all 5 3rd gen games, and never got it.. then within a week of having Diamond, i get it..
Anyways, my whole team, + my fly/defog staravia have it now

1st July 2009, 3:09 AM
I do. The first time I got Pokerus was from a Barboach I caught in my Pearl game. I got it again later, but I can't remember what game it was in, or how.

1st July 2009, 6:43 AM
No Pokerus for me. :(

2nd July 2009, 10:51 AM
I used to have it. A very long time ago. So long so, I don't remember how it originated.

One thing I do know is that it was in Pearl version while I was training at Victory Road.

PKMN Legend Anthony
3rd July 2009, 11:54 AM
I have it.. Got it from a Skitty i caught back in Ruby.. ahh the good old days :)

3rd July 2009, 3:14 PM
I was lucky enough to get Pokerus through the GTS. I put up a Lairon for a Spiritomb, and the Spiritomb I wound up with had it! I was mucho happy; many of my Pokemon have been infected now, and I'm keeping a Magcargo with Pokerus in the computer permanently so I don't lose it. ;442;

3rd July 2009, 4:13 PM
i got it from a glameow i traded for on platinum.

its now absolutely everywhere now, because i spread it so i can give it to those i trade with.
i dont ev train so its no real use for me :p

Ends With A Bang
3rd July 2009, 4:24 PM
A Japanese Turtwig over GTS. :)

3rd July 2009, 4:32 PM
Do I have Pokerus? No.

Do My Pokemon, Yes!

I obtained it while training in Victory Road on a Sapphire Scramble Challenge! Whew!

3rd July 2009, 7:53 PM
Back in my Diamond two years ago, I managed to get a Palkia I believe that had it, which I spred to my team. I also managed to get another Palkia in my Pearl when I was chain trading after having my Dialga stolen when I was trying to clone it. Since then I have given several Pokémon Pokérus, and have spred it to all my games at one point or another.

3rd July 2009, 8:06 PM
I got my first pokerus from a grimmer on Ruby. At first I didn't know what was it, I even didn't know what EV was.

3rd July 2009, 8:13 PM
oh man, my first pokerus EVER was in Gold version. Lol but i ended up getting it in Emerald way back when, not like i really ever knew what it did until recently!

3rd July 2009, 8:15 PM
I got my first pokerus from a grimmer on Ruby. At first I didn't know what was it, I even didn't know what EV was.

Same for me. I really can't remember when or the first Pokémon I got with it. When I noticed, almost every Pokémon I had was infected. I saw that thing on the summary screen in almost every Pokémon in the box (something like 4 to 5 years ago) and I was like "wtf is this?" Just later when I afforded an Internet connection I had the opportunity to learn what was it about.

4th July 2009, 3:33 AM
I love how I got mine. I was sitting in the car on a rainy day, playing Emerald. Going mad training on my Skarmory I must of killed something with PKRS. Went to heal, got the message, prepared to migrate. Woot.

4th July 2009, 3:44 AM
I got mine when i traded a pokemon in the GTS, i went to the pokecenter and WOOT! i discovered that i had PkRUS xD

4th July 2009, 3:45 AM
Got Pokerus way back in sapphire somehow. Then got it again while playing Diamond.

6th July 2009, 1:10 PM
I got pokerus off a wobuffet my friend gave me; I don't know where he got it from.

6th July 2009, 3:13 PM
I first got it on my Sapphire game, but at that time I had no idea what it was. I then completely forgot who had it and such. Later on though, someone traded me a Pokemon with Pokerus on my Diamond version.

Kitty Aruseus
6th July 2009, 8:35 PM
I got PKRS on my friend's shieldon he gave me on diamond, from fighting an ace trainer on the route below the mansion and got it from his pokemon. When I'm actually EV training on pearl, I gotta spread PKRS around.

Thing is, PKRS spreads even when in the PC. I never took my Bibarel out when I had PKRS in my team, and a PKRS pokemon was in the pc, and Bibarel got PKRS!

6th July 2009, 9:23 PM
Same for me. I really can't remember when or the first Pokémon I got with it. When I noticed, almost every Pokémon I had was infected. I saw that thing on the summary screen in almost every Pokémon in the box (something like 4 to 5 years ago) and I was like "wtf is this?" Just later when I afforded an Internet connection I had the opportunity to learn what was it about.

For me a guy on an anime event went like crazy when he saw the pokerus. It helped me a lot since I wanted so many saphire exclusives.
He explained me a little about EV and IV, in 2003, only a few knew about it in my city. That opened some doors to good battles and understanding.
Pokerus always helped me, mostly out of the game.

Yes. I have it saved all throughout my pokemon. It is great. I couldn't wait forever though so I traded it with someone on wifi.

6th July 2009, 10:31 PM
Yes, I have it.
I got it from a Staravia I caught as a HM slave :D
I didn't realize it, though, until i went to the pokemon center, a few hours later.

6th July 2009, 11:27 PM
I FIRST got Pokerus by battling a wild Pokemon with my Butterfree on Crystal. It made me mad, too, because I couldn't port it over to Pearl.

But I got Pokerus on my Pearl version from a traded Pokemon and promptly infected half my potential EV candidates. Yay.

6th July 2009, 11:35 PM
I have it on my empoleon I got in a trade. It just won't spread!

6th July 2009, 11:37 PM
First take it to a Pokemon center so they inspect it. Then battle with it and other Pokemon in the party. Voila, you get it on other Pokemon.

Yes I have it, and I keep Pokemon with it in the box pour fin. It helped EV train my Lucario, Meganium, and so many others....

7th July 2009, 5:43 PM
I received mine from a friend over Wi-Fi Connection. I've always been overly cautious containing the disease, and only spread it to a couple of my other Pokemon.

3rd August 2009, 2:10 PM
ive had it twice one on platinum and one in ruby

3rd August 2009, 2:17 PM
My friend got a Monferno on the GTS with it, and then gave some to me on my Diamond. I've never had any in other generations, though.

3rd August 2009, 2:47 PM
got it in a trade but didnt know what it was at first, so my party had it and i didnt box them up for the night and theyre all immune now =( so i had to get new ones and retrain them with pokerus

3rd August 2009, 11:10 PM
I have it on my Diamond (and had it on Gold or Crystal) but can't remember how my pokes caught it.

Absol trainer
4th August 2009, 9:55 AM
Have it on my diamond and fire red and diamond, none off them from trades.

*Jean Grey*
4th August 2009, 3:51 PM
I had it on Platinum after fighting some male Kirlia (and catching the females)

4th August 2009, 3:56 PM
if i remember correctly I either got it from a wailmer i got in emerald, or a pikachu i got off the GTS

Crazy Chaos
4th August 2009, 4:05 PM
I got Pokerus in my Platinum from trading. I'm not sure where Pokerus came from in my Silver, but back then I thought it was bad, so I had a box full of infected pokemon. XD

4th August 2009, 4:16 PM
ive had it on crystal!!!

4th August 2009, 4:20 PM
A Gulpin I transferred from Sapphire has it, and it's been infecting my Pokemon ever since.

4th August 2009, 4:31 PM
I got it from a traded Shellos and a GTS Latias.

The Thunderbird
4th August 2009, 5:02 PM
I got in in a trade on Diamond and a Registeel from that game began to infect my Pokemon on Platinum.

4th August 2009, 5:14 PM
I got it in diamond, when my friend got lucky and got it on the dialga he caught.

he spread it around some of his pokes and gave me it, so yeah.

this was back in '07.

4th August 2009, 8:37 PM
I got it from a Burmy over the GTS. I haven't moved him or spread it yet. I'm waiting for it. This is the first time I've ever gotten it.

4th August 2009, 8:59 PM
I have it on Pearl (courtesy of the GTS, iirc; I have several carriers, including an Azelf iirc) and on my Platinum; the female Piplup I received on the GTS had it, and I gave it to a Yanma I caught in the Safari Zone.

4th August 2009, 9:06 PM
I got pokerus from a friend off Wifi. He was the first to get it at our school and I informed him it'd help him earlier that day so I got it for free with a Spinarak :P

5th August 2009, 3:22 AM
I seem to get shiny Pokemon more often than I get Pokerus... The only game I have ever had Pokerus in was my Diamond. And I didn't get it there until I had 500-something hours of game time, the longest time of any of my games.

In Diamond, I was training a Sudowoodo in Route 215 one day. At some point I opened the menu and looked at all my Pokemon's summaries, and I saw that Sudowoodo had a purple Pokerus icon! I don't know which Pokemon he got it from, but judging by the location, it was either a Geodude, Ponyta, Abra, Kadabra, or Gligar. I'm pretty sure it was a Kadabra though. Anyway, I spent the next few days spreading Pokerus to most of my other Pokemon, including all the ones I'm training for the E4. I might spread it to Pokemon I'm planning to trade as well, just to be generous. However, so far I haven't traded any Pokemon since I got Pokerus...

Thanks to the Pokerus, just recently I witnessed the highest level-up stat boost I've ever seen on a Pokemon: a +9 Speed boost on a Drifblim! That same Drifblim got +7 for Attack on that same level-up. Fighting all those Machokes and Medichams probably did the trick...

(Hmm, I should try the same thing with my Rash Mismagius, training her in the Old Chateau...)

5th August 2009, 3:28 AM
I have it from a few pokes that I sent over, and I also caught a Pelipper with it.

7th August 2009, 9:43 PM
i got it in the wild by luck the first time i played diamond then i found it again on a different copy of diamond since i lost the first copy of the game and i get shinies once in a while so i guess i have some luck and today i got 6 shiny pokemon from wifi all legit and ut

PKMN Legend Anthony
8th August 2009, 4:54 PM
caught it from a skitty on ruby :)

9th August 2009, 8:08 AM
Yup. My Cleffa has Pokerus.

IDK what it does though.

9th August 2009, 5:28 PM
I came in contact with a Pokemon who had it when I was in Stark Mountain on my Diamond... I had no idea what it was.

Now I'm spreading it around to all my pokemon... I'm sure like half of them have been infected by now.

9th August 2009, 5:42 PM
Unfortunately no but my friend does

9th August 2009, 5:47 PM
I have multiple pokemon with it. Some in my party others on my box. Cant remember how in satan's name I got it, but I think it was from my S/R games...I think

9th August 2009, 8:10 PM
I got pokerus back in my silver. ^^ This was so far back the common theory was you could only get it if a golbat used 'bite' on you. XD Anyway, I didn't know what it was, so I asked around. T.T I was told it was a super virus that would mutate all of my pokemon into legendaries eventually. So I kept releasing them as I saw they got infected, and eventually just released all of them. LOL Imagine how stupid I felt after i found out what it really did.

Anyway, I got pokerus again on my sapphire and wisely saved it. So now I have many many diseased pokemon.

9th August 2009, 8:17 PM
I have pokerus.
From a person here on these forums.

I EV train with it.

10th August 2009, 7:25 PM
Don't have it, not really looking for it either.

10th August 2009, 7:45 PM
i had it once. i didnt know what it was so it was wasted. but i got it somewhere in victory road

15th August 2009, 4:08 AM
Total accident for me. I got it in Platinum, from I think a Volbeat, in one of the Battle areas. It was so random, I had no idea I had it. Then, before I knew it, it spread across my entire team, so now I think almost all my Pokemon have/had it.

Several of mine still have it.

15th August 2009, 4:18 AM
I got pokerus on like 8 of my pokemon

15th August 2009, 5:03 AM
2 Pokemon I got from GTS are infected but I have yet to spread it among my Pokemon.

15th August 2009, 5:15 AM
Got it from my ingame diamond cressellia.

15th August 2009, 5:29 AM

I think I got it from a wild Hippopotas.

That's how I got mine in Diamond! [coinkidink] I also got a strand of PKRS in my Ruby from a Zangoose soon after.

18th August 2009, 8:48 PM
I got them all from GTS a torterra and a dewgong (first one I got with the virus) . Then I spread it around some of my pokemon. When I first saw the Pokevirus I freaked out thinking it'd kill my game and pokemon then I read it and saw it was good. lol its a cold for pokemon that doesnt hurt them.

18th August 2009, 9:03 PM
I got a Diagla off GTS. How do you spread it?

18th August 2009, 9:13 PM
The first time I got Pokerus was after I got a Japanese Turtwig off of the GTS.

I didn't know what it was at first so I looked it up on the internet.. and the first thing I saw was "Pokemon Virus" which caused me to freak out thinking that my game now had a virus on it lol
Upon further reading though I came to learn that Pokerus was actually a good thing.. so now I have a boxful of Pokerus-infected Pokemon all thanks to that Torterra. yay.

I encountered it in-game a while later on Emerald after battling a random fisherman. At least I actually knew what it was that time.

27th August 2009, 11:18 PM
I didn't realise I had it, but I have a Bulbasaur that I must have traded.

Now I just need to get my Skorupi and then find the best way to EV train them xD

it all started with eevee
27th August 2009, 11:43 PM
I got Pokerus from WiFi trades in Diamond.
Then I traded a Kingdra from my Sapphire game, and realized it had Pokerus. That was the second time I had ever gotten Pokerus on my own. The first time was in Crystal, and I restarted the game cause I didn't know what it was and thought it was something bad.

27th August 2009, 11:58 PM
My cousion got it,who infected me with it.
It's all thanks to that Pikachu.

28th August 2009, 2:43 AM
I had it on multiple occasions and around about 60%-70% of my Pokemon on Platinum have it but I never really use it to its full advantage(My first one on Platinum was a wild Kricketot)

28th August 2009, 6:43 AM
My team in Platinum has just infected Pokerus. :D

25th September 2009, 6:01 PM
my nephew got it on his ruby version, infected his party, and sent it to me. He got it from a shiny Zigzagoon.

25th September 2009, 6:13 PM
I have had 32 different pokerus infected pokemon at the moment i have a drapion infected with pokerus

25th September 2009, 6:27 PM
I got a cyndaquil with it by trading with a really cool guy named Josh I met on Serebii's trade/battle chat thing. I then infected the rest of my party.

25th September 2009, 10:14 PM
The first time I got it was in Firered. I was freaking out for a good minute trying to figure out what it was. Then the nurse told me it my pokemon stronger, so I got over it.

In Diamond I got it off of the GTS. Don't remember all the little details, but I've got.

In Platinum I got it off some wild pokemon while I was training my Psyduck (who now infects everyone else with the lovely little virus).

29th September 2009, 6:56 PM
this update! I got pokerus two times in 1 day from GTS trades!

1st October 2009, 2:00 AM
I have it!
MY buttrfree got it from something in the wild o.o
I was like WOAQH whered that come from?! cause it wasnt at the head of my party. weird

1st October 2009, 5:41 PM
I got a pokemon with pokerus from the GTS, but for the life of me, I can't remember what it was, lol! It's been awhile since that happened, it was on Diamond. But I still have "active" pokerus pokemon that I use to spread it for EV training purposes.

I'm constantly making sure that I put them back in the box when I'm done. I'm always scared I'll lose it.

Sapphire Phoenix
2nd October 2009, 12:40 AM
A long time ago I got PokeRus from a Dialga I got off the GTS. Now, I have about 10 Pokemon in the PC that have it :/

2nd October 2009, 2:16 AM
I got it in Platinum... I tried to heal my Pokemon and it said they had Pokerus... I was like, what the heck is that? One quick search showed me how awesome it was since I use the Macho brace. It also broke up my team though because I don't want to infect some with it just yet and the ones that are, I stashed in the PC Box so I could train each one at a time so I didn't use all of the time for each simultaneously.

I think it was a Mr. Mime that had it.

Wigglytuff FTW!
6th October 2009, 4:57 AM
I had it in a few of my pokemon, but I didn't realise it until it was 11:59 PM.

granbull guy
6th October 2009, 5:05 AM
I've had it before but I don't have it now

8th October 2009, 5:36 PM
Yeah I got it from either a bidoof or starly in Diamond a while back. It spreads to my team mates left and right. It's far too itchy as well.

8th October 2009, 5:58 PM
I remember shortly after I beat the league, I was walking around in between fight area and survival area checking out the pokemon there and battling a few. When I went to the pokemon center in survival area, nurse joy told me I had it :D

9th October 2009, 4:19 AM
I've never caught Pokerus in the wild....I've gotten many Pokemon off the GTS who have it, but I have no idea what stage of Pokerus they're in, so I don't bother to spread it around.

Can you catch it just from battles? Or do you have to catch the Pokemon who has it?

9th October 2009, 4:23 AM
I've only got pokerus via a wild encounter once... though I can't remember which game that was in. Before the current gen, anyway.
And you can get it just from battles, I believe.

9th October 2009, 4:33 AM
While I traded pokemon with some guy, he gave me a pokemon with Pokerus.
I never really cared for it before but now its a HUGE help, thank you mystery guy ^.^

9th October 2009, 4:40 AM

On Diamond, I'm pretty sure my Empoleon got it, and I spread it.

On Platinum, my shiny Riolu randomly got it.

9th October 2009, 4:52 AM
got it from trapinch in emerald

17th October 2009, 1:55 PM
Got it off a Chimchar off the GTS on my Diamond. It now has spread to my Platinum.

17th October 2009, 2:21 PM
Yes I do. My Monferno randomly got it on Pearl (I've abandoned the game though), and I got it off a random Pokemon on Route 209 on Platinum (as well as a traded Regirock). I've since infected my entire "battle" team, several of my legendaries, and all my Eevolutions.

28th October 2009, 9:49 PM
Caught a Budew first pokemon i caught in this gen it had Pokerus

28th October 2009, 9:58 PM
My Budew (now a Roserade) got Pokerus from a wild encounter. I think it was a wild Bidoof. It happened around the time I was coming out of Eterna forest and entering Eterna City. The nure said my pokemon had pokerus and I spread it ^_^

28th October 2009, 10:53 PM
Sadly I don't. :( But thankfully I don't need it now; my team is all at lv 100. :)

28th October 2009, 10:59 PM
I traded a junk Ekans for a Phione with Pokerus, at the same time I traded a shiny Bidoof for an Adamant Groudon with good IVs.

31st October 2009, 2:03 PM
Yes I do....I first got it from a Charizard over GTS.

7th November 2009, 5:47 AM
I have, through a GTS trade. I think it was either an Elekid or a Spiritomb that had it.

7th November 2009, 5:52 AM
Yes, I do, in a fair number of my games. I guess I am very lucky, though I'm not sure of the odds of getting it are. ^^

7th November 2009, 6:38 AM
I got it while training in Gold version a few years ago. Just a few months ago, I got it again while training in Diamond at Victory Road. Too bad it's really not that big of a deal since you can get it so easily from somebody here on Serebii or from the GTS.

8th November 2009, 12:50 PM
I was looking for a pidgey and I found a Pidgeotto. So I caught it. When I looked in my team to check it, I saw it was infected with PokeRus. I was so proud =D

9th November 2009, 1:22 AM
I've never randomly encountered a wild Pokemon with Pokerus before, though I have gotten two Pokemon with the virus off of the GTS. Apparently, they were a Swablu & Latias.

9th November 2009, 1:27 AM
Yes, I do have pokerus. I got it from a trade in GBA from my friend, and spread around in diamond, pearl, and finally platinum. And I intend on spreading it to HGSS.

9th November 2009, 1:32 AM
i have never gotten pokerus in the wild i just got one off the gts

No. 1 Machop Fan
9th November 2009, 1:45 AM
I got Pokérus on my Porygon in Diamond while we were training at Route 201. I think it came from a Bidoof because that's who we were battling (Training in HP EVs).

9th November 2009, 4:15 AM
I got it on my Pokemon Pearl somewhere in Mt. Coronet, while I was on my way to Snowpoint City for the first time, I originally got it on my Luxray and spread it.

9th November 2009, 11:57 PM
Yes. I got by a LEGIT SHINY MILOTIC from the gts.

10th November 2009, 12:06 AM
I myself do not have pokerus, but some of my pokemon have it... It is soooo usefull for EV training!!!

thats a win I got my pokerus from serebii and I hope it doesn't screw with my computer >)XD

10th November 2009, 12:12 AM
I always told my Pikachu to be careful, but last night he came home and told me he had gotten "The Rus". We we're a little shocked to be honest, but we told him we still loved him and asked him if he had been to a pokemon center. He said yes, and that Nurse Joy had told him it was only contageous for like 48 hours, but that it's effects would linger for a lifetime. We asked him if he knew who he had gotten "The Rus" from, but he told us he didn't know. It could have been several wild pokemon he met a couple of nights ago. That kind of set us back too, but we've gotten over it now. He's growing up and this stuff just happens.

The moral of the story is kids, always, wait what?

Oh, that's not what this is about???

Oh, yeah, I got one poke with "The Rus" and have been incubating it in my box to spread it to others when I need it. >:P

10th November 2009, 12:49 AM
yes, and i have the stat ev and iv calculator that helps balance a pokes stats wit ev's, i have no idea wat its called

12th November 2009, 11:55 PM

...That story just made my day. I can't even come close to topping that one. XD

I traded for pokerus a long time ago. :P

13th November 2009, 12:03 AM
got pokerus from a spiritomb on da gts

14th November 2009, 9:17 PM
YES! Got pokerus from a wild Weezing that killed my Golduck with Explosion. :P

14th November 2009, 9:32 PM
I have had to many pokemon with Pokerus and only one was given to me through a trade, my first ever pokerus infected was a lv.26 Ekans

Xx Flare xX
14th November 2009, 9:44 PM
I've had it twice (well my pokemon has ;)(I use protection!))
And I never notice till AFTER I heal my pokemon, and I still don't know much about it:P

15th November 2009, 12:43 AM
Yep, I just recently got it from my cousin. Was quick to spread to my Infernape, Sceptile, and Arceus.

Hopefully this wasn't a short life pokerus one so I can spread it more than just a few.

15th November 2009, 12:48 AM
I always seemed to get PKRS by accident no realizing how hard it is actually to get. Oh well about 50 something of my pokemon have it all incubating in my boxes.

surfer treecko
15th November 2009, 9:20 AM
Yup, almost half of my pokemon now have it. I can't remember how I got it though.

15th November 2009, 9:26 AM
Yeah, I got it from a Japanese Teddiursa off GTS nearly two years ago. That Teddiursa is now an Ursaring and I have nearly forty Teddiursas with the egg moves the original Japanese one came with (I was trying to do the Matsuda method successfully a second time). That Ursaring/Teddiursa is now an integral part of my game.

15th November 2009, 9:36 AM
I got it from my swellow that I migrated to pearl.

Clayton Japes
16th November 2009, 8:14 AM
I came across it by accident in Plat and now I've traded it onto my new Diamond game. It's useful, but I feel it puts too much of a pressure on me to EV train at an early stage in the game where I feel the fun is more story/goal oriented. But that's just me.

25th November 2009, 7:31 PM
I got it from an arcanine I received from GTS. Now it's spread to most of my pokemon, but I'm not really sure what it does. :/

25th November 2009, 7:59 PM
Indeed I do :)
I got it from a shiny Electrabuzz! :D

25th November 2009, 8:07 PM
Just curious. People post if they do, and, if they do, how they caught it.

I got mine from my little bro who caught a Ralts w/ the PKRS on Emerald, spread it around, and then let me upload. Got mahself some rare Pokemon that way, too.

i got it when i was playing my ruby version. my zigzagoon got it from a wild zubat in granite cave. it was the first and only time i ever got it. it went away after a couple hours though...

25th November 2009, 8:26 PM
Sadly, no I have not.
Not that I really want it or anything, I don't play the games much anymore, but it would be nice to have one Pokemon with it.

25th November 2009, 10:35 PM
I've never had it. :(

26th November 2009, 7:43 PM
I got a Pokerus Arcanine from the GTS :D

26th November 2009, 7:48 PM
i love pokerus, its all the rage these days

26th November 2009, 8:07 PM
yes, i got pokerus from a Spiritomb over GTS on my first Platinum save and i got pokerus from a wild pkm on the game I'm playing now...

27th November 2009, 2:32 AM
I have gotten it from a Turtwig over GTS

27th November 2009, 2:41 AM
During my playthrough of Pearl, I caught a sneasel with Pokerus. That one pokemon gave some pokemon on Platinum my pokerus today!

27th November 2009, 10:10 AM
I received Pokerus 3 ways:
I first got it in FireRed on 6 island I believe from a random Skiploom.
Then I traded for a Kangaskhan on the GTS and got it again.
Then my friend traded me a Zangoiose with Pokerus so I have plague going around.

27th November 2009, 4:57 PM
Nope, I haven't =/
I am still hoping I'll find a Pok&#233;mon with it someday.

27th November 2009, 5:54 PM
I got pokerus after battling a wild pokemon that had it. I didn't know what it was at the time and even now I'm not completely sure what it does. It's probably something to do with uni-pre-duo-EV-IV-AV-DVD-special-stat-mega-ultra-master training where you can get the best pokemon in the universe or something. But I wouldn't know 'cos I don't even know what an EV is.

newmoon island
27th November 2009, 5:54 PM
I used too. My friend traded me an armaldo with it. Unfortunantly, I forgot to put it in the PC so other pokemon would get it.

27th November 2009, 6:31 PM
I found it on a wild Graveler in Iron Island in Pearl about 3 years ago. From there, I spread it everywhere I could. I still have plenty of infected pokemon on my Platinum.

28th November 2009, 7:29 AM
Oh, gosh...

It's been so long I've forgotten when and how I first got Pokerus...

But the helpful little virus is still going strong in the PC of my Platinum game. =)
