PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A
0 votes

I was using the GTS in Pokémon Ultra Moon and got a Scizor. It had max EVs, max level, and had Pokerus. Though I was just expecting a regular one for my shiny Trumbeak. The same thing happened. I was wonder trading until I found out that two other of my Pokemon had Pokerus: Malamar and Meowth. This is strange because they were all just freebees. So, do people not want them, or are they hacked?

pokerus is a beneficial pokemon disease which doubles the ev's it gains. It is totally legitimate and can spread to other pokemon. It does, however cure eventually, and cured pokemon cannot be re-infected. the virus will not, however, die in the pc. If you wan't more about this, look here. vvvv

Well, Pokerus spreads in the players party, so these people went to catch these pokes, and probably just had a Pokemon with pokerus in their party at the time hey went to catch, and it just spread to the newly caught Pokemon.
