Hey I was wondering how do you get the Pokerus. Do you need a Action Replay to get it. Thanks.

PS:What are the odds of getting a shiny pokemon?

No you don't really need an action replay to get pokerus although it is one of the quickest ways. For the legit way, you just need to have a wifi battle with someone that has a Pokemon with pokerus and just use a physical move (the ones that have to have contact with each other but don't mind that,just use moves that looks like they have the orange kaboom picture instead of the purple waves) I would recommend to go to the Pokemon Trading Forum and start a request topic. The odds of encountering a shiny Pokemon is very slim actually so I wouldn't be so enthusiastic trying to find one in the wild when you can use the GTS. Hoped I helped.

The chance of finding a shining Pokemon is 1/8192

A good and easy way to get shining Pokemon is to do what is called abusing the random number generator and to get a japanese ditto to hatch shinies easier.
