What is it? I think it's +6 Shuckle with assault vest in a sandstorm, but I'm not sure.

Do you mean base stats, or with items and stat boosting attacks?
With items and attacks

You are correct.

Shuckle with Maximum SpDef is 614.
Since 6 stages multiplies this by 4, you now get 2456.
Assault Vest multiplies this by 1.5, and this turns into 3684.
Also, in Sandstorm, SpDef is multiplied by 50% (1.5). This turns your number into 5526!

Therefore, the highest Special Defense stat possible is 5526.

2 Cherrims not 1 is more than 50%
The effect does not stack if two Pokémon have Flower Gift and even if it did the species clause would prevent you from using two Cherrim's.
You must realize you need the stat boosts to be baton passed
The assault vest .....
so 1% damage every time I assume? lel
