    I've beat the leader of mahagony town. Went to pokemon centre. I got out of the pokemon centre. Pr.elm called me and said that he discovered pokerus. Then i saw my meganium with pokerus. I heard that it's an amazing thing. What do i do now? Help me.

    Its a good virus that boosts your pokes stats... I think

    No need to worry, PokeRus is a very good thing to have. It doubles the effort values in your stats for each time you level up. So for example, you would gain +2 Attack instead of +1. If you don't want your Pokemon to have the PokeRus (for some crazy reason) then just leave it in your party until after midnight. If you want to keep it, make sure your Poke is in the PC by the time it's midnight.

    Really? I didn't think Pokerus was until 3rd gen...

    To put it simply and correctly... It's a good thing. It quickens your Pokemon's growth. Let your other Pokemon in the party catch it and store one of them in the PC so the PokeRus remains intact forever (as it goes away quickly). Then you could spread it to more Pokemon whenever you want! Spreading this virus is a good thing! :)

    Good on you mate!

    You got Pokerus.

    Even better since the second generation runs on the much less efficient Stat XP. It takes 656 pokemon with a base 100 in the stat you are out to train in order to max out said stat. Don't fret, however, the second generation doesnt call as strictly for evs as later gens do. Overall, nothing has changed. just spread the pokerus around, it doesn't damage you pokes, and your game is fine.

    You got Pokerus in gen II!? Back then the odds of getting the pokerus was far lower than it is now. A 3 in 65,536 chance of finding it, plus you had no idea that a Pokemon would have it. There is a 1 in 8,192 chance of getting a shiny Pokemon. You can see why this is a very lucky thing for you.

    I'm pretty sure the odds of encountering a Pokemon with the Pokerus in the newer games is still 3 in 65,536, just like in Gen II.

    Of course, wi-fi trading in gens IV & V can make it easier for people to obtain Pokemon with the Pokerus, so in that sense you are right about it being harder to get Pokerus in GSC. But the odds of finding a Pokerus-infected Pokemon on your game are the same in all gens.

    (btw, I have been infected with the Pokerus three times, on Emerald, Pearl, and Black. I don't want to think about what the odds are. o_O)

    Your lucky, Pokerus is pretty rare in 2nd Gen. I only ever got it once.

    It increases your pokemon's stats when they level up, so its really a good thing.
