Pretty sure 6IV on this event is not possible, also Lv. 100 with EVs as well is strange. Hack.

I just wanted to make sure, if a Pokemon does not transfer to a Pokemon bank and it doesn't know any HMs, it's hacked right? Pm me if possible.

I'm posting this here because I didn't see a thread like it for SwSh. This is the Pokémon:

Pokemon Species: Ditto
Pokemon Gender: N/A
Nickname: (Japanese katakana transliteration: metamoso)
OT: (Japanese katakana transliteration: zuki)
IDno: 34497
Shiny?: yes
EV's: (unknown)
IV's: 6 best
Nature: Modest
Characteristic: It takes plenty of siestas!
Ability: Limber
Moves: Transform
Level Caught at: (unknown)
Current Level: 100
Stats: HP - 300, Attack (blue lettering) - 129, Defense - 144, Special Attack (red lettering) - 159, Special Defense - 144, Speed - 144
Location Caught: It seems to have traveled all the way across space and time to join me from the Johto region.
Date Met: (unknown)
Egg?:
Pokeball Caught In: Love Ball
Ribbons: None
Blue Pentagon? No origin mark
Any other notes?: I got it from a copy of Omega Ruby I bought in GameStop. I am pretty sure that the previous owner was a serious breeder because of the amount of eggs and Pokémon (including shinies) with Pokérus. They left multiple legendaries with varying IVs, some with multiples of those legendaries, including shiny Xernias and Yvetl that match perfectly the description of the ones from the 2016 event. From what I have gathered, it seems almost legit, but what throws me off is the lack of an origin mark. I'm confused about whether or not there could be a gen 2/remake pokemon without one. I'm trying to breed competitive Pokémon, but I don't want to use offspring of genned or hacked Pokémon.
