So I got an Ho-Oh from the GTS in ORAS and I wondered if it is hacked, although I'm 99% sure it is hacked, maybe I missed an event I didn't know about. Here are some details:

It is lvl. 9
It is shiny
It has no IV's or EV's at all
OT: Rory
No Ribbons
"Seems to have traveled across both time and space to reach you from the Hoenn region"
It has the moves Sacred Fire, Recover and Brave Bird (no 4th move)

I'm pretty sure it's hacked since Ho-Oh doesn't even get Sacred Fire until lvl. 43, and Recover until lvl 71. It also is lvl. 9, and as far as I know is that the lowest level you can get a Ho-Oh at is lvl 45, in Pokémon HeartGold. But since it came from Hoenn, it must've been lvl 50 or higher. I think it is hacked. Please let me know if I'm right

As SadisticMystic pointed out, it is possible to get Ho-Oh at lv 5 from Dream Radar, but it will always have it's HA (You didn't list what ability it had so I can't use this to tell whether it's hacked or not). However, as SadisticMystic also pointed out, it would not be possible for it to be from Hoenn, so yeah, still hacked.

If it's a Dream Radar transfer, you can actually get Ho-oh as low as level 5 (by sending it to a game that doesn't have any badges yet), but it will come with the Regenerator ability in that case, and certainly won't claim to have originated in Hoenn.
oh, heh.  Never actually participated in dream radar, so I really have no idea how it works :P
but yeah, fixed
It has Pressure ability so ye this one is hacked ;P
