It's pure luck, just like when you try to encounter a shiny Pokemon. There's no high chance unless you use an AR (Action Replay) to hack. (Hope This Helps!) :)

The chances of getting Pokerus by battling wild Pokemon are 3/65356 chance. It its more rare to get It than a Shiny Pokemon, as stated here:

So it is rarer then a shiny pokemon which is really weird since I have never seen a wild shiny pokemon but got pokerus 3 times.
