Pokerus never gets cured or heals. It's always there. It just becomes non-contagious. If it got cured, you wouldn't be able to still get double EVs.

At any rate, this has apparently happened to some other people, and nobody really know why it happens. You don't even need Pokerus, though, since EV training with hordes is extremely fast.

Are you sure?
Welp; Shouldn't trust what I get from Wonder Trade...
At any rate... Does this mean that if I grab a Pokémon the Pokérus of which I know is original (As it is one of my own), would it work?

Yeah, that's true!
This is going to sound ridiculously whimsical of me, but truth be told...
I want the little "healed" face on my Shiny Glaceon's summary xD

If Powersaves is at fault, it probably gives the Pokemon an illegal Pokerus strain, which could be why it just disappears when the Pokemon should become non-contagious.

I'd say yeah, try infecting it with a Pokemon that you know has legitimate Pokerus. If it still disappears... I don't know what to tell you.

Well, from what I've tested the power save prus dissipates in a few days (less than normal I'm assuming, but when the pokemon infected with the psrus infect another, it's the real prus

It'll be midnight over here in 10 minutes...
I'll check if my entire party (all infected with the same -perhaps powersaved- strain) loses it.
I need to confirm something, just to see if I understand the logic behind it...

Yes! They, indeed, are no longer infected once the 12am mark passed!
So here's my theory now:
The Pokémon were, indeed, infected with an "invalid" strain of Pokérus, most likely a genned/PSd one. Once midnight comes and the game has to calculate whether or not to cure the infection, it detects the invalid strain and resets the bits related to Pokérus to their default, non-infected values so that the Pokémon's data doesn't get corrupted!
I'll try the legitimate Pokérus today and check again come midnight.
This is very interesting!

Okay, they're infected with the different strain now. I'll report next midnight!

Midnight's getting close over here...
Time to solve the mystery of these "illegal" strains!
