    The only time I remember getting PokéRus was when I was very young so I didn't really know what it was and I ended up not using it to my advantage when I had it. Even now I wouldn't really care about having it since I'm so used to not having it.
  4. When my Pokemon got Pokerus (don't remember which one it was) in SoulSilver, I was like "Pokerus? That can't be good..." But, apparently, it wasn't even anything bad. It just makes your Pokemon grow faster. Then I was like "oh, okay. That's cool."

    How come when people get an STD, it's dangerous/lethal, but when Pokemon get an STD, it makes them stronger?

    My first Pokerus encounter that didn't come from random Pearl trades (I never touched the GTS in any other version save for like, once or twice in a few versions,) was my Vespiquen in Platinum... I was gonna use it in my party, but I couldn't be bothered to EV train at the time, so it's still sitting in my PC.

    the first thing i thought was "why is nurse joy talking to me about checking my pokemon for a virus or something?"

    I remember I wasn't expecting it and I normally try to rush through what Joy says, and then she said something like, "...Uh oh." or "...Oh!" I can't remember what, and for some reason it really startled me. I'll never forget it! lol.

    I have never jumped into a freezing lake. That's stupid because you can literally die from it in like 10 seconds if you don't get out.

    I was confused when she said it made them grow faster, I thought it was like a Lucky Egg.

    I caught a Ralts with Pokérus in my old Ruby version (rather early game too, I might add). I was younger, though, so when Joy gave the speech...:

    "Your Pokémon may be infected with Pokérus.
    Little is known about the Pokérus except that they are microscopic lifeforms that attach to Pokémon.
    While infected, Pokémon are said to grow exceptionally well."

    I was startled/orly?! Can't really remember what I did with the Ralts, but I don't think I kept the Ruby game file around long thereafter getting Pokérus. Shame...
