PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

Ok, so I noticed that my Pokemon Moon game is glitching. I know it's not that I have an old or wrecked 3ds because I tried playing Alpha Sapphire on it and that game doesn't glitch. So, I'm thinking I have a hacked Pokemon.
I got this Weavile in a trade in Pokemon Y and somehow was able to transfer it over to Moon. It didn't seem suspicious then so I think I taught it new moves and made it gain a few levels, but I can't remember because it was so long ago. I'll just tell you its moves and level anyway, though.

Weavile (female) lvl. 59
Ability: Pressure ("By putting pressure on the opposing Pokemon, it raises their PP usage")
Moves: Dark Pulse, Power-Up Punch, Ice Punch, Poison Jab
HP: 169/169
Sp. Atk: 67
Sp. Def: 124
Speed: 207
Defense: 99
Attack: 222
Nature: Adamant
"Seems to have traveled across both space and time to reach you from the Kalos region."
Characteristic: Takes plenty of siestas
Ribbons: Kalos Champion Ribbon
Caught in a regular Pokeball
Seems to have had Pokerus
Markings: Blue circle, blue triangle, blue square, pink heart, blue star, blue diamond

So, is this Weavile hacked? If not, is there any other reason why my game might be glitching?

Glitching: the screen suddenly going black and the music stopping, then randomly coming back on again after a couple seconds. The game did that multiple times.

I know what's going on here, and it's not the Weavile. In fact, I have this same exact problem. My 2DS is pretty old as well, and every now and then the screen and sound go black. This seems to be the system's sleep mode being spotty, because it always seems to be fixed by forcing the sleep mode slider to the right a bit, and then it works fine. The Weavile and your game are both perfectly ok; it's the system having issues.

This Weavile seems perfectly fine. I'm pretty sure that it's not hacked.
Also, what do you mean by "glitching"? The newer Pokemon games, from what I know, are pretty stable and shouldn't have regular glitching without modifying anything.

Thanks, but by glitching I mean the screen suddenly going black and the music stopping, then, a second later, the screen lighting back up again and going back to normal. It did that a few times before I finally decided to turn it off.
I doubt that a hacked Pokemon would do that to your game. Your cartridge or system is probably damaged.
Well it's pretty stable now that the game doesn't crash when using Z-Parting Shot online...

If your game is glitched, it has nothing to do with weavile. The 3DS may not be old or ruined, but the game chip may be.
