    The mainsite states that Pokerus infected Pokemon should be placed in the PC, but do they need to be placed their permanently in order to keep the Pokerus, or is this to just spread the virus?

    If you get pokerus what you should do is spread it to a few of your pokemon by keeping them in your party - by placing the infected poke in your pc it indefinitely keeps the status of pokerus with the symbol PKRS in purple I believe. If you keep an infected pokemon out of your pc, it is possible for it to get over the pokerus and the symbol will turn into a little face on their summary screen. The effects of pokerus still remain but it can no longer be spread.

    In short - they dont need to be there permanently, only if you are concerned with being able to spread the PKRS.

    let me summerize, unless theyre in the pc (which pretty much freezes them, and it doesnt spread in cyberspace) they loose pokerus spreadability in about 3 days. to prevent loosing this just spread it to several useless pokemon like a bidoof or zubat and stow it in the freezer to preserve ur pokerus supply

    Also note they tend to lose that spreadable factor with Pokerus around Midnight.
