So I received a shiny Mewtwo in Let’s Go and it looks to be hacked. If I use this in a online match will I be banned?

I dont have the game, but I'm pretty sure you will get banned by Nintendo/The Pokémon Company for using hacked Pokémon online, it's been like for all online modes. Or someone could report you and get you banned. Also, what does the Shiny Mewtwo look like (moves, stats, etc.)?
The shiny Mewtwo moves is
Ice beam
Calm mind
It's stats are
Hp: 553
Sp atk:544
Sp def:416
I think that Mewtwo is legitimately obtainable, but it still might be hacked.
Like sumwun said, It seems legit since, but it might be hacked.

Also, just in case this helps anyone:

Ability: Pressure  
Shiny: Yes  
Happiness: 70  
EVs: 200 HP / 196 Atk / 196 Def / 175 SpA / 196 SpD / 194 Spe  
Timid Nature  
IVs: 0 Atk  
- Psychic  
- Recover  
- Ice Beam  
- Calm Mind
This might be outdated information, but as far as I know, LGP/E have no hack checks. It it possible to use Pokemon in online battles with moves they cannot legitmately obtain. https://www.resetera.com/threads/81442/
Perhaps that would get you banned, but given the developers' overall inaction against hacked and cloned Pokemon in Gen 6/7, I think it is very doubtful.

This allows people to simulate Faraway battles in a balanced format, without worrying about Game Freak's lack of a hack check (seriously like, you can go into battle with Mega Mewtwo X and evolve it into Mega Mewtwo Y).

I guess you won't get banned.
