I had just gotten a Latias from Southern Island. I came back to Lilycove and asked the nurse to heal my Pokemon. But she said, " Your Pokemon appear to be infected with PokeRus.They have strange life forms attached to them. Little is known about PokeRus, except that Pokemon infected with it grow exceptionally well." I have heard about this before but I've never experienced it. What should I do?

You can't get rid of the Virus, you have to let it run its course. Other than that, you may heal your Pokmon as normal.

You're right. I just tested it. Do you think it was put in the game purposefully?

No no. It'll run out in time. Then the Pokmon that had it become immune to getting it again. ^_^

It was put in on purpose on these and Gold/Silver/Crystal

I think it happens when your Pokemon comes in physical contact with a wild Pokemon that has PokeRus.(When it does a move such as Take Down or Tackle to the wild Pokemon.) But I don't know for sure.

Oh, and something you may want to know before the virus wears off. If you put an infected pokemon in the box, you can pretty much keep it infected forever until you bring it out again. I think if I remember right it wears off in four or five days, because my pokemon got it in the desert. I still have pokemon in my box that still have it, though. I suggest you give it to a pokemon you want to raise up some levels and fight people like crazy! Just my two cents, take it or leave it... :paranoid:

I had had MUCH experience with PKrs. I have a Kyogre which was infected with if from level 45 to 95. This is what I noticed, Kyogre gained about 1 to 2 more points in every stat each time he leveled while the virus was in effect. This my only be my immagination or my luck but I know it happened because as soon as it wore off my Kyogre went from get 5-6 in every stat per level, to 3-5. This I have also see this in my friend's Minun and my Tyranitar on Gold. The major reason I noticed on my Kyogre was that it was getting 4-5 attack per level being Modest. Believe me or not.

the Pokerus doubles all Effort Values gained. That is why an infected Pokemon gains more stats (until its EV is maxed out, then Pokerus will not matter).

What a waste D3th 1n@rn@te...+5 attack for modest Kyogre? Ouch... that's 20 EV lost out of 512... ouch!

A friend of mine had it once. None of my pokemon have never been infected though. It's kinda odd that the rule book and other stuff never mentioned this status condition. By why call it a virus? I thought viruses were bad. This thing helps you out.
