Secret - Pokerus - A good virus that helps when training your pokemon
(This isn't really a cheat but rather a hint that some game users don't know about.)
Pokerus is a virus that any Pokemon can catch but it is very rare. You can get it by encountering a wild Pokemon that is infected with Pokerus. Yet, the odds of that are extremely slim.
"What does Pokerus do?" Well it doubles the amount of Effort Values (aka "EVs") that you gain in battle. If you want to start EV training your Pokemon, Pokerus definitely comes in handy. It isn't an item. It is more like a status (burn, frozen, paralyzed, etc.) that your Pokemon can catch but it isn't a bad thing and it lasts forever if your pokemon gets it.
"How can I get Pokerus if it is so hard to find?" The best was to get Pokerus without AR codes or cheats, is to go trade Pokemon over Wi-Fi with people from all over the world at the Global Terminal (located in Goldenrod City in SS). If you trade often enough, you're bound to come across a Pokemon with Pokerus.
"How do I know if my Pokemon has Pokerus or not?" If your Pokemon has Pokerus then, on the Trainer Memo info section of your Pokemon, there will be a purple label that says "PKRS". This means that your Pokemon has an infectious case of Pokerus. If you leave your Pokemon that is infected with Pokerus in your party and it becomes midnight, then the Pokerus will become un-infectious which means it is no longer viral and cannot spread to your other Pokemon. Then a symbol will show up on the Trainer Memo info section instead of the purple "PKRS". The symbol is a small orange circle that looks similar to a smiley face. This is how you know that the Pokerus for that Pokemon can no longer be infectious. The effects of the Pokerus will stay the same after it becomes un-infectious (2x the EVs).
"How do I spread Pokerus?" Once you have one Pokemon with an infectious case of Pokerus, then you can spread it to other pokemon. You have to be quick though and not waste any time (remember the Pokerus will not be able to spread after the clock strikes midnight). Take the Pokemon with Pokerus and place it in the first slot of your party. Then go out and battle a few wild Pokemon. Slowly the Pokerus will infect the Pokemon in the second slot of your party, then the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth.
"How do I preserve Pokerus so I can spread it to other Pokemon that I will obtain in the future?" To preserve Pokerus, simply place an infectious Pokerus Pokemon into your PC. This will freeze the Pokerus to the infectious stage for an...
