Nevermind on the Darkrai. I found your events forum. Darkrai shows everything like the event. I'm still cautious on the Arceus though...

Darkrai looks legal. The complete red ball is called a Cherish Ball and most events come in it.

Your Arceus is hacked. PokeEdit is a computer program similar to PokeGen that creates hacks and sends them to the game. Release Arceus; it's a bad hack.
 
Thats what I figured. Took forever to find and it turns up hacked. Thank you for your time.

Is this Bellsprout shiny? And also, does it have a completely flawless spread, or only 5 IVs?

I'd say legit. I get a lot of good pokemon on wonder trade, so this wouldn't surprise me. He could have been breeding for a shiny, so he didn't need it. I got a 5 IV kangaskhan a while back, missing sp attack. Sometimes you get lucky.

WHICH stats exactly did the IV judge say can't be beat? If it's a 5IV flawless shiny with those 5IVs in random stats that don't match its nature, I'm going to go with legal. If it has 6IVs, I'm going with hacked.

If it's shiny with 6IVs from Unova, chances are that it's hacked. 6IV shinies are extremely rare in the first place, but getting them from Unova is almost impossible unless they were RNG'd. If it were Kalos, it would be a different story, but I'm suspicious of all flawless shinies from Unova.

So basically, this Bellsprout could potentially be RNG'd, or it might be hacked. If I were you, since I can't find any data on this trainer, I would wait until PokeCheck comes out for Gen VI before releasing it. Upload it and see what PokeCheck says about it. But I'm not getting my hopes up that it's legitimate.

Or a failed egg RNG, either way it appears legal.

You can fill a Pokemon's EV via the Super Training, get the Ribbon, then use Reset Bag/EV-resetting berries to erase all the EVs.

But that doesn't matter, that Rayquaza is hacked anyway, for reasons mentioned by the others above.

It also has the Record Ribbon, a Ribbon not available anywhere except via hacking. And let me guess, it also has all the battle and contest ribbons lol

Along with all the reasons stated you can also tell it's hacked as it has 6 Japanese characters in its name which wasn't possible without hacking before X and Y. All of its IVs are 0 as well.

Besides questioning the Trainer ID, I looked up on the data and everything seems to check. I'm more than likely assuming this was RNG abused since it came from the Hidden Hollow (since it's very rare to find an Imposter Ditto in there). Otherwise, I'd say this is legal for the time being, but I'd also suggest to get another opinion or two just in case.
