    Default How or where did you first get Pokerus ?

    For me personally I was level grinding a Sandile in Castelia Sewers. An infectious disease caught in the sewer ?! So epic

    Random hunting in Diamond. Went to heal up my pokemon and Nurse Joy said something about a disease. Have been deliberately spreading it around from game to game since

    In Platinum when I was trying to train my Pokemon. Just got the nurse saying something about my Pokemon having some disease or something like that, and then I remembered talking to some people about something called Pokerus, and that was it.

    I got it through a trade in Pokémon Diamond.

    I thought the purple sign was a glitch, but then I remembered being told about PokéRus back in middle school, during the Gen 3 days.

    I later got all of my pokemon infected. SUPERPOKÉS!

    No idea what I was doing or where I was when I first got it.
    All I remember is the first time I got it was in Soulsilver.

    When I traded a Eelektross into W2 or B2 from Japan, it had it then when I Pokebanked it into XY and then it was stuck on it, like a permanent attachment.

    When I was EV training in XY with hordes, I didn't realise until I took my Pokemon out of my party.

    The first time it happened for me was when I had let a friend borrow my copy of Silver, he then somehow managed to find Pokerus on it. This really surprised me because I did at that time not know that Pokerus existed in Gen 2. I also got it on my own later on (not counting the times I obtained it through trades) last year when I was playing Sapphire. Not really sure what I got it from, I was just checking my party members and noticed that some of them had it, I believed back then that I must have gotten it from a wild Pokemon, but since I couldn't remember defeating any wild Pokemon at that moment I thought it might have been from a Secret Base trainer that I battled. Which feels very unlikely, but I suppose it shouldn't be ruled out completely.

    I believe it was in Shoal Cave during my second Ruby playthrough that I encountered it.

    I got my first encounter with Pokerus in Diamond. I got a Vaporeon from the GTS that was infected and I was terrified. I thought it was what a boy told me from school (the Missingno. virus) that corrupts your save. Luckily, I was able to do proper research on it and I was happy to have found it!

    I think the only other one that's notable was that I actually encountered Pokerus on my own once in W2. I was in the Castelia Sewers and I guess I had fought a Pokemon that had the virus. It was pretty cool.

    I found it on a Mr. Mime randomly one day in Diamond. I knew it was good at the time, but I don't know what it did...

    I was just organizing my Boxes in Pokemon XY and I suddenly found out my French pancham had pokérus. Pretty cool.

    A random Pokémon encounter in Ruby, I think.

    It felt really special back then. XD

    I got the Pokerus for the first time on Emerald. Don't know where I got it, I just noticed that my Pokemon had it one day. I lost the ability to spread it pretty quickly, though, when I left all my infected Pokemon in my party and then forgot to play for several days... x_x
    But fortunately, I recently caught the Pokerus on my Emerald again! I was looking through my PC not too long ago and noticed that a few of my Pokemon had it.

    I also got Pokerus in Gen 4 (on either Pearl or Platinum) and Gen 5 (Black). So, I've managed to get it four times on my games, which is pretty cool.
    In Gen 6, I got it off a Pokemon from Wonder Trade.

    It was a random Pokemon I got off the GTS on Platinum. I think it was one of the Sinnoh starters who had it.

    I was doing a Nuzlocke in Pokemon White and I caught a Lillipup on Route 2 that had a PokeRus.

    It was in either Sapphire or Emerald I think. . . I didn't know I caught it until Nurse Joy told me about it, but I had noticed my Golbat was kicking more b*tt then usual.

    I believe it was traded to me in gen IV? It's common courtesy to infect pokemon you're going to trade with pokerus if you have it, so that's where it started.

    I can't believe so many people managed to find it randomly. Aren't the chances ridiculously high? Like double a shiny except you can't visibly see it? Crazy.

    My first experience with Pokerus was my Wailord on my Sapphire cartridge.

    My Croagunk caught it in Platinum, probably from a wild Gible. I transferred the Pokerus over to my Drifloon, and it still has it in the PC box.

    First got it while I was training my Pokémon in Pearl, also have caught Pokerus in Platinum and Soul Silver as well. I have since made it a mission to spread it to all of my other games.

    I got my first Pokérus on a Budew in one of my Gen 5 games when I received it on the GTS.
