it is from korea and has a timid nature with the ability natural cure.
it has the moves Psychic, Dazziling Gleam, Shadow Ball, And Energy Ball. Has Pokerus and is in a Luxrary ball. it is at lv 42.

Your Celebi is probably Legit.

The Pokémon Bank Celebi is available worldwide to players that have accessed the Pokémon Bank application anywhere from the 25th of December 2013 to the 30th of September 2014.

Pokémon Bank was released in Korea on the 25th of December 2013.

You obtain Celebi at Level 10 inside a Luxury Ball and it receives a random nature.

My guess is that the player who your Celebi used to belong to has levelled it up from Level 10 to Level 42, changed it's move set and then infected it with Pokérus.

To be honest i think this answer is wrong. ALL Event pokemon are inside Cherish balls not luxury balls.
The Pokémon Bank Celebi isn't it's inside a Luxury Ball in every language. Check the link I provided for more details :)

if theres a little pentagon when you look at it in the Pokemon center pc (next to where all the markings and things are) then it is legit. the pentagon was a new thing put in place this gen to know when your Pokemon are legit, or if they are hacks

I see a blue pentagon on all my pokemon, including celebi.

It probably is real. The pokebank does distribute the celebis through the poke bank at level 10 with a luxury ball, as the other guy said the korean guy probably leveled it up a bit then traded it away for unknown reasons ( no point in speculating). So most likely it is not a fake and I'm not even sure how to get a fake Pokemon in the first place.
