Yeah, several times. My first level 100 had Pokerus, but I didn't know it until later.
I am in the process of leaving PC and IRC channels associated with it.

I've had it happen only once... and that was during the Christmas Stocking Stuffers' challenge in December. I was using a Hakuouki themed names, and for those who know the series, I thought the PKRS infection was quite amusing considering that most characters get "infected" through the Ochimizu (which has roughly the same strenghtening effect). Unfortunately they healed pretty fast.

I hope to get it once on my real games (as I was Emerald ROMing at the time)... and encounter a shiny... Because I'v never had that happen before.

Is the Pokérus meant to be more or less rare than shininess?
I've encountered several shinies, but never once have I encountered Pokérus. Shame, really.
Turnips shall rise.

Never. I would probably freak out when getting it if I didn't know what it was, though.

I was restarting my White game a year or so ago, and transfered some pokes and items i wanted to save to my friends game. whilst searching for more trade fodder on her game, to transfer items with, one of them turned out to have Pokerus. i left the infected poke on her game as an extra thankyou, but infected a pidove for my own game :) it was a first for both of us!

Back in Emerald I had a Minun with Pokerus, but since I was around ten years old when the game came out, I never bothered to learn about it or read whatever Nurse Joy had to say about it at the Pokemon Centers, so I thought it had a negative effect, being a virus and whatnot. I simply boxed it and forgot about it. At the time, I had no clue what EVs were and it didn't really much matter to me, as long as I could defeat the Elite Four.

I'm still not much for competitive battling and EV training today, so even now, I would probably just box the infected Pokemon.

I think I might have had a Pokemon with pokerus in my Sapphire but its been so long that I might be wrong. Other than that I don't think I've had a pokemon with the pokerus virus.
