In my Pokémon Gold game, My Pokémon with PokéRus doesn't infect others stored in the PC, and doesn't even become immune unless it's in my party. For me there's only a chance that others become infected when I heal at the Pokémon Center, not automatic as the article implies. My Pokémon take about two days to heal. But before I edit the page, I wanted to ask if it is possible that PokéRus can act different for different trainers? -- Slim

That's how PokeRus should act. It spreads within the party, and a pogey in the PC will not lose PokeRus status. evkl 14:21, 6 October 2005 (CDT)

Pokemon Rocks America

I got a Ho-Oh and Lugia from Pokemon Rocks America 2005, and a Metang, but none of them have PokeRus, as it states in the article. Lukario 18:19, 28 November 2005 (CST)

Glitch?

Wait, is PokéRus a glitch? -- Ryguy 19:34, 29 July 2007 {EST}

No. PokéRus is not a glitch. Jonah 00:39, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Telling if a wild pokemon has pokerus

i heard on a website that to get pokerus that you had to catch a pokemon with it, and to tell if it had pokerus ( while it's still in the wild) that it would have a status condition when it first appears. is this true?

No. You can't tell if a wild Pokémon has PokéRus, however, you can catch the disease from it without catching the Pokémon. TTEchidna 08:35, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

Day care?

Does the virus wear off in the day care center? I just got a Tangela, and I want to breed it but I want the virus to spread to my team too. >_>; User:TinaTheKirlia/Sig 23:23, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

I think it will, but you could just spread it around before throwing it in the daycare by leaving it fifth in the party and battling random things. User:TTEchidna/sig 01:52, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
Oh shi-- good thing I got a good natured Tangela within the fifth egg. *runs off to Day care grabbing Tangela and sticks in party* User:TinaTheKirlia/Sig 01:55, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Egg

Is it possible to get a pokerus from a egg. My friend told me that he had. --133Darth196Cookie197Monster471 23:51, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

My sister got PokéRus from an egg.. the virus spread to the egg, though, then the egg spread it around the party. When it hatched, however, it was immune. User:TinaTheKirlia/Sig 23:55, 6 January 2008 (UTC)


I mean the egg hatched from the daycare, and it had pokerus. --133Darth196Cookie197Monster471 00:00, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Eggs can get it, you likely got it on the egg soon after getting the egg from the daycare, and didn't check it until after it got the rus. User:TTEchidna/sig 01:54, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

No middle caps

This is an excerpt from Pokémon Diamond at the Pokémon Center:
(...)
Little is known about the Pokérus except that they are microscopic life-forms that attach to Pokémon.
While infected, Pokémon are said to grow exceptionally well.
It's only two ocurrences of the word. Where did it appear with middle caps originally anyway? In some summary of the Oaknapped episode? --Johans 06:26, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

That's how everything with Poké is spelled. It's a Poké Ball, it's PokéRus. Etc. User:TinaTheKirlia/Sig 06:29, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
Well, this one resulted being an exception :). I'm just trying to help by using spelling from the game. --Johans 06:35, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
You know? I believe it's because "-rus" is a suffix and not a word. You can bet /pokevirus/ would be spelt "PokéVirus" for sure, hehe. --Johans 07:04, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Conditions for immunization?

I have the impression that the immunization of my infected party happened too early... I didn't walk too much, and closed my DS without turning it off by about 30 minutes. In Generation IV, does it depend on certain number of steps, or on real time? Remember that the DS does have a clock. Sadly I saved twice, and never noticed that my party was already immune before the second save (I managed to store only 1 infected Pokémon). --Johans 06:35, 12 January 2008 (UTC) File:Example.jpg

In FireRed

I have a Tauros in Firered, but I can't make it infect my other pokemon in the party. How is this? Hfc2x 00:25, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Have they already had it?User:Darth Cookie Monster/Sig

nopes. I know that pokemon get a black dot when they already had it 'cause my brother has PokéRus too, so I asked him to infect my pokemon too. I traded him my tauros, so he infected it and traded it back, but I can't make my pokemon get it too. =( Hfc2x 04:57, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
