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.
when i got my emerald version the very first time i went into the pokemon center my new mudkip got pokerus. the next time i turned on my gba my game was corrupted and i had to restart

I hope not.I've gave my best pokemon Pokerus
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...
