    Woaw, i'd never heard of that before :S

    I don't think it's Pokerus, but, being my curious self, I would like to know what happened to Alder's Pokemon, but then I'm the type of guy who'd like to see backstories for every single character in the whole damn game.

    Well, in-universe its very rare, and loses its ability to spread very quickly, and as players of the game, we strive to keep the virus alive, but realistically, would probably die off very quickly

    And I guess here's the final nail in the coffin for this conspiracy.

    -The virus spreads from wild Pokemon to your Pokemon through battle
    -Your Pokemon has a very high chance of spreading it amongst your team.

    Now, if the virus was lethal, Alder would not have had one, but all his Pokemon die from it. Perhaps it was Pokerus, and Taio may be onto a very plausible explanation that individual differences between and within different species may have caused Alder's Pokemon to die from it. However, if that were the case, then it would likely have been an isolated incident. It's almost like causing mass-panic in a safe neighborhood about walking out in the streets due to a person tripping and cracking their skull open.

    In short, an isolated incident is not a mass cover up.

    And......?

    As for the theory, it makes some sense, but I don't see how it can be both good and fatal to a PKMN. It's one way or the other, unless there's a real-world disease that's beneficial and lethal at the same time.

    Well, every species will cure themselves of the virus rather quickly, so it may be that pokémon have developped a resistence to it, but what about older pokémon who did not have this resistence, how long ago did Alder start his journey? We'll never know, but perhaps at the time, pokémon had less defense against the infection...

    Also, Pokérus seems to wear off even faster in the Unova-based games, which also happen to be the most recent games in the timeline, that could lead to some interesting conclusions...
