I was training my competitive Level 1 Eevee via Super Training and it had Pokerus (even though it didn't help my Eevee at all).
Then I leveled it up until it was a Level 46 Espeon, and I realized its Pokerus wasn't cured yet! Do Pokemon not lose their Pokerus when it's fully trained from Super Training? Or is it a glitch?

Pokerus curing has nothing to do with how many EVs you have.


Whenever the game creates Pokérus on a Pokémon, the value assigned to
Y (days) depends on the value assigned to X (strain). Specifically,
the number of days will be set to X modulo 4 + 1. In other words, the
higher two bits of X are irrelevant to the "strain".

Strain X values Duration
(Y value)
A 0, 4, 8, 12 1 day
B 1, 5, 9, 13 2 days
C 2, 6, 10, 14 3 days
D 3, 7, 11, 15 4 days

Source for table and text: Bulbapedia.

Basically, Pokerus will wear off after a certain amount of days depending on the strain, which is generated randomly. So Pokerus will wear off Espeon either 1,2,3 or 4 days after contracting it.

yeah , I dont have XY but I was going to answer that but with more details, so I simple didn't answer because i wasn't sure :(
I'd also mention that Pokerus doesn't effect super training :y
