So, how do your Pokemon contract Pokerus from the wild?

I know that keeping an infected in the PC will keep it infected, and how to spread it.

But how do you get it when you encounter a wild Pokemon with it?

Does your party Pokemon get infected when you catch it, or is only the captured Pokemon infected?

chances of encountering one is very rare and the best way is to trade with someone for the pokerus

I was asking because I recently picked up Emerald, but I don't have any local players to trade with <_<

Yes. It doubles the EVs you receive

I'm pretty sure only the captured pokemon will be infected, but you don't have to capture it. It can just appear after a wild battle on any of your party.

Don't take my word for it, but I'm pretty credible. I guess.

All you have to do is battle a wild pokemon that has it(ofc there's no way to tell until you're infected). I think you have to actually battle and defeat the wild pokemon to get the pokerus, but I'm not sure. Catching it will also work.

Trying to get Pokerus intentionally is probably a waste of time unless you get EXTREMELY lucky. Pretty much everyone who gets Pokerus is just lucky enough to get it by accident, like I was.

I'm fairly certain you can contract it just from battling a wild pokemon that's infected with it. I've had some really good luck with PokeRus and almost all of my Pokemon in White 2 have it, so I really hope GF succeeds in making a way to send them to XY.
