Been playing Y for about 3 days now and have 6 Pokémon on my team infected with pokérus. Is this as rare as previous games?
It definitely seems like pokerus, as shiny pokemon and perfect IV pokemon are a lot easier to encounter in X/Y. First I thought it was just this world-wide release with more people reporting it, but last gen was only 2 days apart for europe and america, and there weren't reports like this. I think GameFreak went for an easier experience in these games, when it comes to mindless shiny searching or breeding (or training for that matter, with the new Exp. Share)
