We've talked about shiny Pokemon, one of the rarest finds in any Pokemon game. Today, Austin is going a step further in the rare department. Theorists, have any of you ever heard of the Pokemon virus known as the Pokerus? I'm going to guess even some of the most fanatic of Pokemon fans watching this have not. What is the Pokerus? What does it do? And why, Theorists, do you WANT to catch it? Austin, take it away!

When I took genetics for my BS in Bio, we had a whole debate on Virus and Prions being "alive or not". We determined that Virus' were Vampires and Prions were Zombies. This was a decade ago so I don't quiet remember how we came to that conclusion. My Prof had to put a stop to it cause it took over the discussion board in blackboard. It is indeed a fascinating topic. And a bit disturbing also given the nature of Prions.

Actually a lv 100 Pokémon’s stat only goes up by 1 for every 4 evs and you can only max out 2 stats with evs and any Remaining points into any other stat or distribute the 510 evs amongs the different stats but then you won’t be able to fully max stats to the limit so for every 100 evs a stat only goes up by 25 points not 100 Austin even with pokerus those limits still exist

I only (legitimately, without trading) got pokerus one time, back in... I think it was... Hm... it was either Crystal version, or possibly Leaf green. I'm leaning more toward Crystal, because I played it way more than Leaf. Edit: just remembered I had a sneasel I infected with it in Pearl. I'm really not sure what exactly happened, like if it was a glitch or if I did some weird specific thing that happened; but after I'd figured out how to evolve it (around lv.50 was when I found out about the razor claw).. the first time it leveled up after evolving, most of its stats went up by 15-20 each??? I don't know if it was because I evolved it so late, and the virus just caused the stats to jump to what they would have been if I evolved the sneasel at an earlier level? I know that pre-evolutions get less stat boosts than evolved forms; so that was the only reason I could think of that would cause it...

Then is it possible that just like computer viruses, real viruses are also created? By some extraterrestrial species who is altering every species' dna on different planet with their own dna and those whose physical immunity denies it fall sick.. Were we evolved by natural selection or someone manipulated our genes to evolve this way?

If viruses are living bodies? Yes, I think so. I like to think that they appeared on Earth, but separately from the first cells... another evolution branch that used the other to survive... Maybe that's totally messed up (which could totally be). Edit : It is not really a serious theory just a random thought that came of mu mind that's not serious business

When I was younger I remember my friend coming over to show me and my other buddy his pokemon had pokerus, I was very skeptical on it even existing because it sounded like b.s.and I've been playing since gen 1. Anyways I took a look at his pokemon and I was shocked so I asked him how did he get it and where he was at that time to see if I could get it but he insisted that it was just luck and location had nothing to do with it but I went over to the same place which was victory road (ruby version) and started battling random pokemon and ended up fighting a loudred after the battle I went to the nearest pokemon center and in my disbelief the nurse said my pokemon has it!!! I was so estatic what is the likely hood that 2 people in the same room getting pokerus within an hour of each other and mind you this was back in the gba days and me and my friends didn't have a link cable so there's no way I got it from him. I asked my third friend to go to the same area I was just to see if he got it but unfortunately he wasn't so lucky .even to this day I'm still skeptical on it being a luck thing.

Can I just point out that to what Austin was talking about whether or not viruses are "alive", many of the things there are not qualifyers. Several of these are just checking whether or not something is similar to other living things, not whether something is "alive" or not. We can get rid of the 1st, 4th, and 5th, at the very least.

Again with the Kanto Plurals. The singular and plural forms of a Pokémon's name are identical. Changing the spelling to pluralize the name was a localization error from the first few episodes of Season 1 of the anime. It was corrected in later episodes soon after it was discovered. If I've said it once, I've said it a million times: in terms of pluralization, the closest English word to a Pokémon's name would be _deer,_ as its singular and plural are identical under all circumstances. Here's an easy rule to remember when pluralizing the name of a Pokémon: _The plural of Pokémon name X is always X. No spelling changes, no pronunciation changes, no exceptions._

Honestly, when people say they "killed" a wild Pokémon, it annoys me to no end. Pokémon are only killed in certain cutscenes of the dark story for _Pokémon Insurgence,_ a scene where the protagonist rips off the head of a Nuclear-Type (I wish I was kidding) in the fan-made _Pokémon Uranium_ fanfiction _Adventures in Tandor,_ and the incomplete and abandoned fanfiction _Game of Champions._

I like to make my Pokémon blindingly fast. More specifically, with the Snivy line, I like to combine blistering Speed (taking advantage of its status as Unova's fastest starter) with mind-blowing Special Attack and go with moves like SolarBeam, Giga Drain, Energy Ball, and Leaf Storm, as well as getting it to hold a Miracle Seed to ramp things up even further.

EV training doesnt work the way they say it does. It is 4 EV = 1 stat. So 100 EV in attack would get you 25 attack.
