For an unknown reason, Odd egg Pokemon can't be transferred if they know Dizzy Punch.

Due to an oversight by Game Freak, all of the Odd Egg Pokemon will fail legality checks during transfer because of the move Dizzy Punch. None of them can legitimately learn the move in the core series from Generation 3 onward, meaning the Pokemon Bank filters flag them as hacked.
Simply level them up or use TMs/HMs to overwrite the move and they will transfer perfectly fine.
It's annoying that you can't retain the version exclusive move, but if that's what it takes to transfer a shiny, it's a small price to pay I suppose.

Just delete Dizzy Punch.
