So to me, the Pokerus has always been more of a myth to me, up until Gen 4. Has anyone ever obtained a pokemon with a pokerus?

I haven't. Isn't it weird how little threads there are here?

I finally caught Pokerus in ORAS, but had never had it before that. I've definitely seen pictures of it in gen III, and I know it can exist in gen II, but it's obviously rarer in the pre-wifi era because individuals have to catch it themselves and can't spread it easily to people all over the world.

And re: the second post, yeah, there aren't too many threads. This isn't the most active forum, but many of the discussions that are here are good.

Was lucky enough to happen across it after a few years of playing Silver. Figured out how to spread it too before it wore off thankfully.

THats great. how accomplished did you feel and what indication did it give to let you know it was pokerus?

to me pokerus will forever be the more mythical one than shinies.

I actually somehow got the pokerus once on my gold version. I don't even remember which pokemon had it, but I just remember playing it one day because I was bored and...something seemed a little different when I looked at my menu...

Yep. I couldn't ever catch a shiny pokemon in that game, but I somehow managed to get one of my pokemon to catch the pokerus. Go figure.

Didn't play much after that and of course that save is now gone. I've never seen it pop up again in any other game so far.

Well, there was the in-game text but I had already noticed the increase in experience from battles. At the time I had no idea it was completely random to catch it in the first place so it was a tad bit frustrating trying to work out the conditions for getting it.

When it passed to another party member though--mwahahaha! That was good enough.

The only way I've been able to catch PokeRus was through Wondertrade on AS. It would have been nice to catch, especially early on.

I do not recall ever having a Pokémon with Pokérus in any Gen. 2 games. The lack of global trading from the second generation makes it much harder to obtain Pokérus since many people on the GTS and Wonder Trade spread it like wildfire :P

I do remember getting Pokérus in Crystal once. I was told by the Pokémon Center nurse that my Quagsire had been infected, and I was like, "What? Is this bad?!" I would find out in later years that it isn't, haha. But at the time I didn't really know what it did, since Stat EXP is quite different from EVs.

I didn't even know that PokéRus existed in Gen. II, but after more than 10 years of playing, my Dragonite somehow caught it.

My first encounter with it was in Leaf Green. I think a poliwhirl or something had it. I was so glad because leveling for me at the time was annoying to all hell.

I do not recall ever having Pokerus in R/B/Y or G/S/C, but I did finally obtain a Pokemon with Pokerus in Pokemon Y! :D

Pokerus began in Gen 2....but that still would've been interesting to see.

I definitely did and the satisfaction of having was pretty awesome! I never really understood the concept myself when I was playing through GSC considering I was pretty young. But know that I look back I'd have to say I was pretty lucky to get one with the "disease".
