Since generation II, there has been a virus called "Pokerus" which is beneficial if a Pokémon comes in contact with it. It boosts the evs of an infected Pokémon by double than what's normal, and the only way to cure it is with time.

But, what exactly IS Pokerus? Apparently, "little is known about it". Could it be a Pokémon itself that is too small to be visible to people? I've seen some very cute fanart of what people think said Pokerus Pokémon could look like.

Whether or not Pokémon ever gives us more details about what Pokerus is beyond "a virus that helps Pokémon grow exceptionally well" remains to be seen, but it's really interesting to think about what it is, no?

but what if the pokerus virus has pokerus :thinking:

in reality though, it's kinda hard for me to talk about the nuances of what pokerus really is. i'd almost go the route of a positive affliction of some sort (since it does help your pokemon grow stronger), but even that sort of thing seems hard to understand, because i dont think anyone knows where it comes from or why it even happens.
