I know there are a few cases of certain Pokémon’s stats being slightly buffed between generations (for example, Masquerain in Gen 7), but has the opposite ever happened?

Note: I am not counting any nerfs as a result of the Special stat being split in Gen 2.

I don't know any cases of this.
Not to my knowledge,no. Probably so that a Pokemon's stats between games don't go down when transferring.
Well, there are Pokémon that have had stat buffs between Gens, and GF seems to have no problem with those Pokémon's stats increasing when being transferred. I don't see why they would have a problem with a Pokémon's stats decreasing upon being transferred.

Some of Aegislash's base stats were 150 in gen 7, but they decreased to 140 in gen 8.

Aegislash is the first Pokémon to have its base stats lowered in a generation after its introduction and the only Pokémon whose base stats changed in Generation VIII.

Not sure about it... But I think Ninetales used to have base 100 special attack, while nowadays has 81.
The question says special stat splits don't count.
Ah OK, jajaj... Sorry.
