Pokerus gone!

#1gamerazPosted 12/9/2013 4:22:19 AM
The hour was around 6 PM, I took a pokemon with Pokerus outside it's comfy PC, and the second I log off the PC and check it's status, the pokerus was cured! Same thing happened to ALL my other 5 pokemon with pokerus on my team!

I thought it is cured only upon midnight, not in the middle of the day!
What happened???

Of course not... Heck, I even pressed HOME button to check the time, it was true to the real world time as expected.

Also this isnt the first time such a thing happened... a few weeks ago I took a pokemon with pokerus out from the PC to my team, had a battle or 2, and then BAM the pokerus was gone!

This time, however, it happened right in front of my eyes!

It's active for so many hours then it cures. Always keep an active poke in a box to spread it again.

I have like a million of them infected, that's not the problem here.

I thought it only cures at midnight, not after, say, 72 hours of "outside activity".

My gloom is my Sweet Scent Dazzling Glem pokemon meant for horde EV training, but he lost his Pokerus, so now I have to "sacrifice" a slot to infect others.

It is just inconvenient...

Don't the affects of boosted EV gain still remain after it's cured?

the only thing lost is that its no longer contagious, the EV boost is suppose dto be permanent

Maybe it's been changed to work off # of hours from infection?

He uses it to spread the Pokevirus around while he is EV training other Pokes.

^ Correct.

Well it may really be true then.... Pokerus now has a life cycle of X active hours (maybe 24) and it is gone regardless of "time freezing" it in the PC.
