First of all, I'm guessing your shaymin was land form - since his defense is much higher than sky form's. Here are some other possibilities:
1) Your shaymin's defense/sp. defense could've been maxed out or have a nature that boosts it.
2) Greninja could've had zero sp. attack boost or a nature that lowers it
3) Your team could've raised it's defense/sp. defense or use a move like "light screen"
4) You could've lowered your opponents sp. attack.

Maybe you were just lucky, but who knows. Hope this helped! :)

Not maxed out def/so def. I was the standard Timid set with HP Water.
No Screens

 Don't have confide or any of that sort
like I said, the opponent's greninja could not of been fully trained or co-operated with (bonds). Therefore, it could of been the opponent's pokemon that was the flaw to the attack. Or - like I said - luck!
