It occurs to me that in the nearly three years I've been playing GSC, I've never once caught the PokeRus.

  • I know the chance of catching it is 3 in 65536. Can you catch it from trainer battles (like the Viridian Trainer House) or only from wild battles?
  • Nurse Joy will tell you your Pokemon has it if you heal them at a Pokemon Centre, but does that get rid of the PokeRus?
  • Are the PokeRus and "immune to PokeRus" status indicated by Stadium 2's "List" view in Prof. Oak's Lab? It occurs to me that I might have caught the PokeRus and never realized it.

It persists until the end of the fourth day regardless of healing. I think you have to defeat (not run from) a wild Pokemon to potentially catch it.

There's also more, I once caught the pokerus when I had only my 3rd badge, but when I put the pokemon with the pokerus in the box they never seemed to get healed from it. I still have it and that was like this March I kept all this time because it's rare. Also when you put the pokemon in the box the pokeRus does not spread to the pokemon in the box, it only infects the pokemon in the party. When I caught it it was from a wild snubull that I beat when I was training tyrogue and togetic, so I'm not sure if you can get from a trainer but I doubt it. I don't have nintendo so I can't solve the 3rd question. Like Rolken said it can't be healed by nurse joy.

If you put a pkmn with pkrus in a box, atleast in GSC, it will NEVER heal as long as it's in the box. You can then take that pkmn out from time to time, put it in your party, and hope it spreads, then put back in box...
