I think we could make vague reference to that in the description, just something like, "Scientists are interested in it's potential". I can totally imagine Aurumoth being encased in armour and maving it's wings removed (That sounds morbid...sorry)
"This ancient bug Pokémon was altered by Team Plasma. They upgraded the cannon on its back."
"This Pokémon existed 300 million years ago. Team Plasma altered it and attached a cannon to its back."
That could so be Aurumoth
Actually if you look at Kabutops and Genesect they actually have the same body type, Genesect is a few inches taller (the cannon), same basic facial features. Although its not a bug type it does have the same look.
I would have to say I prefer Aurumoth as a stand-alone pseudo-legendary, without any ties into former Pokemon.
