If a Pokemon with pokerus on a black/white cartridge had one day of pokerus left and it was transfered to x/y, would the amount of time pokerus has remaining stay the same?

For example, if you had a pokerus caterpie in black/white and you used up 6 out of 7 days of pokerus (since pokerus takes about a day to wear off) If you transfered that caterpie, would you have 1 day of pokerus left still, or would it reset?

I know this seems like an obvious question, but you never know.

Pokerus doesn't work that way; it just has a chance of being cured when your game passes midnight and the Pokemon is still in your party. As long as it's in the box, it'll always keep its Pokerus.
For god's sake Gligurr, did you have to use that profile pic?

OK, here's the thing:

Pokerus does not really work that way

Pokerus does not have fixed hours of stay, rather, if the Pokemon is in the party when the clock strikes 0:00, the disease will fade away.

So coming to the question, if the Caterpie you say has been transfered over to your game and the time in the DS clock is 0:00, it will go away. If not, Pokerus stays. It does not depend on how many hours it has stayed.
