What if I have a level 100 Shuckle, with maxed out defenses. Can any more damage be done if the following criteria are met:

-His attack power is boosted all 6 stages with stat boosting moves.
-He uses power swap to switch attack and defense.
-He is holding a metronome.
-His partner uses helping hand in the same turn.
-His partner is a Cherrim, and flower gift is active.
-He has skilled swapped the ability "huge power" or "pure power
-He uses defense curl +rollout (double power and STAB.)
-His target is a level 1 Ledyba (4X weakness to rock)
-The ledyba has a minimum possible defense stat (58) and has had screech used against him three times.
-The fifth strike of rollout lands a critical hit.

Is there anything I'm missing that could possibly make this do any more damage? Can you imagine this happening in a battle, as unlikely as it is?

The damage level...
9001, AT LEAST.
And thus, Will=Vageta
ITS OVER 9000!!!
You know the first rollout would ko him, right???
its possilbe in a triple battle.
indeed shuckle has the greatest def & spdef but no atk. power swap really helps

If Ledyba could learn Power Trick it could have 20 base Defense instead of 30.

Actually, if I'm not mistaken a Power Tricked Shuckle would have 20 HP and 10 Defense, with a 2x weakness to Rock. So it would take more damage than Ledyba which has 40 HP and 30 Defense, with 4x Rock weakness.

You are not completely mistaken, but: This would be true for higher Level Pokémon, but since the target is only Level 1, any base Defense below 50 will result in the same effective Defense: 4. Thus, the Ledyba could just as well have been a Delibird, Combee, Yanma or Ninjask, since these also have base Defense < 50 and are 4x weak to Rock.

213,896,052 is the amount of damage actually. And let me guess, the Shuckle trivia page, last bullet point on bulbapedia? So nope, max amount of damage.
