Sorry lad, Pokerus is a lot more common than shinies. I've had that.
Not a winner anymore.

Weird. I've found three wild, non-pokéradar shinies, but I've never had Pokérus.

I have a friend who restarted his game thousands upon thousands of times to get a shiny starter.

Then did it again because the shiny was male and he wanted a female.

This took him an entire weekend for a rather pointless status symbol.

You heard of the people who save before Dialga/Palkia and fight them thousands of times for a shiny?
No way dude, you're trolling me.

If I remember rightly, shinies are significantly more common than pokerus. Shinies are roughly 1/3000 chance of encountering them, whereas pokerus is more like 1/65535.

I thought it was 1/8000, or 1/80000, while Pokerus could be find simply by fighting enough wild pokemon on a certain route.

Plus the fact that Pokerus is as contagious as all get out. Especially in this age of online trading the thing can spread like wild fire.

Well, I finally got this game.

Love it already. It's near-orgasmic nostaliga mixed with the freshness of the new; like some kind of perverse Toothpaste made in heaven.

Doesn't Bidoof annoy you?

Joking aside, I agree. Well not on the I just got it bit, but the bit about loving it. This this the first game, apart from maybe WoW, that's had me playing for over 230 hours.
