Just on inspection of the given data, the Pokemon appears fine, matching the Shiny Genesect event from Gen V. It could very well have been attained via RNG abuse, but likewise might not have. Do you know where/from whom you obtained it from?

Welcome to Smogon! It's almost assuredly hacked (you don't know where it came from and OT info is sketchy at best). It's against the rules to trade hacked Pokemon or those bred from them here, so personally I wouldn't bother using it for anything.
Ok, thanks. I guess I can use it for roulettes and hackmons unfortunately it is hacked it would've been great for competitive breeding and thanks for the welcome.
 
I wish to know if all three of these GTS pokemon are not hacked. This is all in Ultra Moon.

Aegi and the Bergmite look completely innocuous (non-Shiny, imperfect IVs), so they're probably alright, but I wouldn't trust them (at least with regards to trading on these forums). The Shuckle looks extremely suspicious, though, and I would advise you to treat it with caution. (edit: The Shuckle's TID number is the one that corresponds to PKHeX's default, so it is an essentially 99.9% chance it is hacked.)

A clear verdict on legality (edit: for Aegi and Berg) cannot really be given just on those details, though (a more thorough check would be needed).

Ok so to determine legality on Aegislsh and Bergmite what else would you need? Thanks for the reply.
A more thorough check using external methods; however, in seriousness, that is probably a bit overkill given they are both non-Shiny and have imperfect IVs.

Are you looking to use them for official battles or anything?

Can't really see anything wrong with it just on the details alone, and those IVs could possibly have been RNG'd. I'd be very cautious if it is from WT, though. Nevertheless, it is difficult to say anything with finality without a more thorough check.

well, it's hacked because it doesn't have the Classic ribbon, probably removed to bypass the WT check ^_^

Lack of Classic Ribbon is a dead giveaway, this Celebi is a hack based on this event.

That's what I assumed. Release it shall go. Didn't see anything on Serebii mention the ribbons, but assumed it was supposed to have one. I have one more I'm skeptical on.
