I was playing around in the Festival Plaza in Sun and Moon searching for people to battle with, and I got challenged my a random Japanese person. I accepted, chose a team and stuff, and the battle begun.

It was a pretty normal battle... until the very end. He actually send out a (Japanese named) shiny Nihilego. When I saw it, I was pretty confused since I knew the Ultra beasts in Sun and Moon are shiny locked. As far as I know, there is no way to get a shiny Nihilego, not even through event. I didn't knew much about it, aside from two moves being Power Gem and Sludge Wave. It also didn't have a hacked ability, it had just Beast Boost.

I didn't obviously know any of it's EV's, IV's or Nature either, but can anyone tell me if I was right? And if I'm not, how did this person obtain a shiny Ultra Beast?

Yes, you are correct. Shiny Nihilego cannot currently be legitimately obtained, so the Nihilego you came across was either modified to be shiny, or hacked in as shiny.

Okay, thanks for answerring my question. Damn, how do these people get through with their stuff? ;p
A lot of people can buy them off other people. One of my friends has done just that for a whole team. It works for ultra beasts so it is probs what happened
