In games:

Unlike other status ailments, Pokérus cannot be healed at a Pokémon Center or with any status ailment healing item, and can only be obtained by the Pokémon in question once. When a Pokémon has the Pokérus, it gains double the effort values from battling (i.e., fighting a Magikarp will give two Speed EVs, rather than one). Effort points gained from vitamins and wings are not doubled. The infected Pokémon can infect other Pokémon with the virus for a period of about two days. However, the Pokérus timer can be delayed by several methods including placing the infected Pokémon in a PC Box.

Pokérus has a 3 in 65,536 chance of being generated on a Pokémon, either wild or bred. Through battling or capturing this wild Pokémon, players could get this helpful virus onto their own Pokémon, and subsequently spread it around. Due to the overwhelmingly low chance of encountering the virus (about 1/3 of the chance to encounter a Shiny Pokémon), and the fact that most would not even recognize a Pokémon with the virus and may flee from it, many players would never have a Pokémon with the virus.

In later generations, the Pokérus became more accessible, with worldwide trading facilitated by the Nintendo DS’s Wi-Fi capabilities beginning Generation IV. In fact, it is common courtesy to infect Pokémon to be traded on the Global Trade Station with Pokérus within some parts of the fandom. Also, a Pokémon’s chances of being infected with the virus very slightly increase when a Pokémon has been traded from another game.


When infected, a Pokémon’s status screen will indicate it much as it does any other status condition (with icon being different for Generation III and IV, while Generation V has the same as Generation IV and Gen II having no icon at all). When another normal status condition, such as Sleep, affects the Pokémon, the Pokérus icon will be replaced. As long as the Pokémon is infected with Pokérus, it can spread the virus to the other Pokémon in the player’s party. The infection may spread if the infected Pokémon is in the main party after a battle. An uninfected Pokémon must be next to a Pokémon infected with Pokérus in the main party for the virus to spread. If Pokémon that have already been infected and cured from Pokérus are in the main party and are on either side of a Pokémon currently with the disease, Pokérus will not spread after any amount of battles. Pokémon that are put into the PC will keep the status indefinitely.

After the virus:

Once a Pokémon’s immune system has fought off the virus, they cannot spread it further, nor can it be spread to them by other Pokémon. In Generations II and III, a dot will appear on the Pokémon’s status screen to indicate that they have had the virus previously, while in Generation IV and V, it will be a small smiley face. Though the virus is gone, its positive effects will remain, most specifically the ability for that Pokémon to gain double EVs.

Any Pokémon on the player’s party at the moment the system clock reaches midnight after a certain number of days in that position (number of days depends on the strain and generation) will become immune. An easy way to keep a „vessel“ for future spreading is to always send the infected Pokémon to the PC, Day Care, Stadium 2 (in Generation II), Pokémon Box Ruby & Sapphire (in Generation III), or My Pokémon Ranch (in Generation IV) before midnight. The game also recognizes immunizing if the system is turned off and on again on the next day.

Genertion V info on Pokerus:

The mechanics remain more or less the same, sharing similarity to the strain phenomenon in Generation II. However, a difference would be that the icon that would appear if a Pokémon has previously had Pokérus would be a pinkish color instead of the former yellow/orange color.

To determine if any Pokémon in the player’s party is to be infected, the game calls the Mersenne Twister table and then discards the lower half (16 bits) of the 32 bit number, then does & 0x3FFF (bitwise and) on the result. If the result is 0, a Pokémon in the party will be infected.

To determine what party member is to be infected, the game takes another value from the Mersenne Twister table, multiplies it by the party count, then discards the lowest 32 bits of the result. If that party member already has been infected, nothing else will happen.

Now that the given Pokémon is to be infected, the game takes the next value from the Mersenne Twister table, discards the lower 24 bits, then enters a loop to determine the strain. The strains are biased towards the lower number strains. Once a strain has been determined, the duration the infection will last is determined. For a given strain s, the duration is s+s%4.

Refer to the Generation II table for strains and duration, as it is exactly the same. However, strains 0x0 and 0x8 are not obtainable legitimately.

Ruth asks…

In Pokemon Black, can released Pokemon return in the wild? Is PokeRusalsi a possible chance in Pokemon Black?

I threw out my crappy Zekrom because he sucks and I never wanna see him again. Is there any chance he will return? Also, is PokeRus obtainable in Pokemon Black?

admin answers:

No, you won’t be able to recapture Zekrom. Released Pokemon are released forever and never come back. Pokerus can be obtained, but the chance of catching a Pokemon with it is 3 in 65,536.

Lisa asks…

I still dont get the concept of ev training in pokemon do I ev train?plz help me?

I’ve tried putting calcium an the other things and also I battle like 50 patrats and 50 lilipups but when it grows a level It still says +3 on speed or attack help me plz?

admin answers:

The EV system was redone. Those massive jumps you may of known about in 4th gen no longer happen. They are now applied as they are gained so the overall stat gain is incrimental and not easily noticed at first unless you’re an expert.

There are plenty of online guides for EV training. It’s not that difficult in practice but can be hard getting started.

When you use a vitamin on a pokemon in gives 10 EV’s to the stat in question. Only can be used to 100 which is why it tops out at 10. The rest have to be done via battling. You seem to know what pokemon give what EV’s. Pokerus and macho brace double gain and power items give 4 to a particular stat regardless of what was battled. And these can be used in combination to get larger gains such as 10-12 per battle.

Steven asks…

Does anybody have a Pokemon with pokerus on black or white or black2/white2?

I’ll give you something for it like a heatran idk lol. . My friend code is
1077 8826 0104

admin answers:

Oh! I definitely have one of those. Do you have a preference as to the Pokemon? I can breed and infect just about anything you would want (or the first stage of it, anyway).

And I wouldn’t want a Heatran. A Pidove or Patrat or whatever spare junk Pokemon you have / could catch would be fine with me.

Mail me (from my profile) if you’re interested, and we’ll set up details – particularly a ‚when.‘

Edit: Also, please only ask questions once. Especially within the same five minutes.
