Here's a little idea: Pokerus vaccine.

Basically, you pay tons of money (this would be the most expensive thing in the game) to give one of your Pokemon the "Pokerus cured" status. With this, you get the EV boost, but it can't be spread.
It would be just like if you let Pokerus cure naturally, but it's put on your Pokemon that way.
Pokerus itself would still exist, but it would be free (very much unlike this vaccine) and it would spread like usual.

What do you guys think?

Good thing it's for your Pokemon then, isn't it?

Imagine giving azurill a vaccine.

I'll think of a good signature someday.

It should just be a service provided for you in exchange for a collectable item, in much the same way as the move relearner and move tutors work.

I think it should be a hit-or-miss one time item like the masterball in r/s

I think this is more appropriate.

Why would you want to do that? The only reason I can think of is if you can't somehow get Pokerus yourself, but that... isn't exactly difficult.

Not difficult. Just ludicrously rare.

Not exactly. With the whole Wi-Fi trading thing, it's pretty darn easy to get Pokerus. Granted, not everyone does that, and not everyone has access, but I'd imagine most people do, and for them, it's not an issue.
