Hints

PokeRus

You can get the PokeRus infection from a Yanma at Route 35, below bug catcher Arnie. Go up and down the grassy area. Add Bug Catcher Arnie to your list he will call you if he sees these rare Pokemon. You will know when you have the PokeRus because Professor Elm will call you and give you information about it (and tell you not to worry). Look at the stats on your Pokemon and you will see a shiny dot at the bottom right side (like a shiny Pokemon) and see the word PokeRus. It lasts two to four days and will spread to the other Pokemon in your party. Infect some and store them to keep the PokeRus going. Trade an infected Pokemon to the Pokemon Gold or Silver only -- it will not work on other versions. Take the infected Pokemon to a Pokecenter and heal. The nurse will say that your Pokemon has tiny bugs all over it -- but they do not seem to be harming them. The PokeRus virus is good, not bad. Pokemon that have it will gain twice as much experience after a battle. Getting the virus is extremely rare. You have a 3 in 65536 chance of getting it after a battle. The virus will wear off (healing at a PokeCenter will not end it). Once the virus is gone the Pokemon will be immune to future infections, and cannot infect other Pokemon. You will see a tiny dot in the corner. You can group infected Pokemon using Pokemon Stadium 2.
