Spreading Pokerus Love (EV Train Faster!)

#1 Posted by ThaMilkMan (385 posts) -

Hey everyone! I have just been made aware of a new (faster) method to EV training multiple pokemon at once and want to enact it but it does require this little thing called Pokerus (which doubles the EVs gained through battle) pokerus is found randomly from wild pokemon and I wanted to see if anyone would be willing to start a pokerus train here to help everyone out on a tedious process.

One thing to note about Pokerus is that a pokemon with it can spread it to others it is in battle with and that a pokemon with pokerus will stay contagious as long as its in the PC. Pokemon out of the PC keep the effect but lose its contagious value after out of the PC for a few days.

Here is a link to the EV Training guide I'm refering to

and here is my FC: 3093-7398-3347 if you care to start spreading the Pokerus Love

Happy EV Training!

Note: If anyone would like to make a table for this sort of thing if it becomes popular that would be great (I don't know how to do such a thing)

I have an affected Flabebe I might be able to spread to some undesirable pokes in my box should you want it? It's going to take me a little need to finish breeding for this shiny. Shoot me a PM if I somehow forget ;)

This is a good virus? Really?

#5 Edited by ThaMilkMan (385 posts) -

@aegon: Yes, it's another one of those Pokemon things that they have never come out and explained but all the competitive players figured out.

Alright, making it now -- shoot me a FR: 1349 5757 1964. It'll be on a Gastly, that cool? Remember to store it in your PC and keep it there otherwise it'll loose it's contagious-ness. Only take it out when you want to spread it.

OH....that explains things. I wondered why all MY pokemon had Pokerus while most others didn't. I did see something about that at the pokecenter nurse said "Its appears one of your pokemon has contracted a virus it can spread to others!" I only caught the last bit and missed anything else since I was just tapping away going "ye heard this all before...wait what was that?"

#8 Edited by perfectlizardwizard (115 posts) -

Yeah so, as long as you deposit the still contagious pokes in your PC before midnight of any given day (if you have them still in your party) it'll keep the virus for another 24 hours to spread. Once it looses it, it's only cured the viral nature of it -- it'll still say it's infected by it; just can't spread it anymore.

Can someone infect me? My friend code is 3780-9657-6078. My trainers name is Valerie.

#10 Posted by perfectlizardwizard (115 posts) -

Add me, I can only do it right now though.

#11 Posted by PandaBear (1484 posts) -

I remember back in 2000 I got it in Pokemon Gold and my friend (who had Silver) and I were thinking it was harming it. Then I talked to the Professor in the game and we did some research online ... but I couldn't get my head around EV training haha

Anyway, I'd appreciate an infected Pokemon! My friend code is 4382-2149-1567 ... if you have Pokemon Y I have Clauncher from X you can have.

Anyone can add me for trades/battles, etc.

You can max EV in 30 mins using Super Training.

You don't need to grind anymore.

You don't need to grind anymore.

You can max EV for up to 6 pokemon in 10 minutes with this method. It's crazy.

Does pokerus double super training gains by chance? Traditional ev training never sounded like a fun process to me, especially keeping track of everything manually since those numbers aren't easily surfaced to my knowledge.

#20 Posted by ajamafalous (12448 posts) -

Does Pokérus work on Super Training EV gains? I'd rather just Super Train. I'm so over grinding the same wild Pokemon for hours to EV train.

#21 Edited by Flappy (2404 posts) -

@ajamafalous: @alanm26v5: From what I understand, it doesn't affect the gains from Super Training.

Edit: My game is practically a Timid Fennekin Pokerus farm at this point.

It's fucking disgusting.

It does not, sadly.

Seems pretty useless this gen then. Super training is so easy and fast (and I'm even left handed) that I'd rather do that instead.

May I also receive an infected Pokemon? I have multiple Gible and Larvitar. I also have a Reuniclus and Pupitar to trade as well. FC 1392-5255-7038. Inugamii

#43 Posted by Petiew (1380 posts) -

Is there any point to pokerus now that Super Training lets you max out EVs? The only time I can see it being useful is for training up a full party of pokemon all at once with exp share.

Also, all these 1 post dudes!

#44 Posted by phampire (292 posts) -

@petiew: With the right items, pokerus and fighting hordes only (using sweet scent or honey) lets you max out evs far quicker than super training alone. The link in the OP is a youtube video guide with all the relevant details.

Hey guys, I had a huge army of pokerus infected pokemon on white 2 (50+), but with this pokemon box thing not coming out til December I'm not looking to wait that long, so I'd love if someone could hit me up with an infected pokemon.
