First of all.... Once your Pokemon's PKRS is gone, it is over. It cannot have it again. PKRS is a beneficial virus that doubles the number of EVs you will gain by battling a certain Pokemon. It cannot be healed by the Pokemon Center and can be given to another Pokemon of your team. It wears off after a certain time but will stay on your Pokemon if you put it in the Box, though the other Pokemon in the Box will not be infected. The chances of getting is really based upon luck, but not as much as the luck of getting a Shiny Pokemon. The Nurse in the PokeCentre will tell you after healing your Pokemon that it has PKRS.

MewwithPKRS

See that little Purple thing beside ''STATUS''? That is the sign which means your Pokemon has PKRS.

I can't believe i am the only one that answered!
So there is no percentage of getting Pokerus? There is a percentge of getting a shiny, so there should there should be a perecentge on getting Pokerus. :p
Well, i believe there is none. I didn't find it.
it is about 1/3 of chance of getting a shiny
Kangmin, that is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY off, JCM, Thanks for the answer, but no percentage makes me sad face. :(
Faked, i think Kangmin meant 1/3 of 1/8192, which is the fraction of chances to get a Shiny Pokemon. And no problem for the answer.
Pokérus has a 3 in 65,536 chance of being generated on a Pokémon, either wild or bred. (about 1/3 of the chance to encounter a Shiny Pokémon) -bulbapedia
so there is a percentage
most of the information and the question itself are already asked and answered on about 3 other questions. you can find out stuff there if you guys have trouble here. Just type in "pokerus" in the search box.
