I know that finding a shiny Pokemon with pokerus is a 1/178,956,971 chance. I kno that finding a shiny Pokemon is a 1/8192 chance. If you leave a male and a female at the daycare that can actually breed and the male has pokerus, will the offspring have pokerus and can it be a shiny with pokerus? Also can the offspring have pokerus if you breed a Pokemon with a ditto or will it just have pokerus?

If the parents have Pokerus it'll be passed down, so just use the Masuada method.....but with Pokerus as well
Gdi Typo >_>
Yes, technically, you can catch a shiny Pokémon with Pokérus. But it's EXTREMELY rare and so the rarity has got to be something like 1/178,956,971+8192. Shininess I think can be passed down via breeding but I'm not sure about Pokérus. [here is a very similar question that has a perfect answer.][1]

All in all, **it is possible to get a shiny Pokémon with Pokérus.**

Hope I helped! =]

Well, I was trying to breed a shiny Shinx (Japanese Shinx and English Ditto, I also have a Japanese Ditto and a English Shinx incase the day care guy say's they dont get along), I was checking the summary of my eggs to see how close it was to hatching, and beside the egg it said Pokérus. I was amazed to find Pokerus on my egg that the parents didn't have :D

Hope I helped!

The only reason it got it was because it got passed down from a different pokemon. You can't just receive it like that
What I mean is it didn't get it from the parents it got it from a pokemon with pokerus in your party with your egg and it happened to get passed down

Yes it is possible though the chances are still pretty low.

No you can't just get an egg with pokerus. It can still get it but it won't happen right when you get it. If you have the egg in your party and go through a few battles with a different Pokemon with pokerus. It will get passed down to the egg
