Actually, these are probably legit.
The Pokemon Dream Radar was an application for the Nintendo DS that was kinda similar to Pokemon Go. Players could use the application to capture Pokemon by activating their DS camera and using it to scan the room and capture Pokemon. With a specific extension, you could encounter the Therian forms of Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus.
The Pokemon obtained via the Dream Radar can be caught at levels 5, 10, 20, 30, and 40. Once a Pokemon was caught using the application, they were put in your PC box.

In this video you can see somebody catching a lv. 10 Tornadus.
In your case, somebody probably caught the two legendaries with the Dream Radar and then leveled them up a little bit before trading the game in.

Since the Gen 5 games are now considered "old news", all Wi-Fi connect-ability with the games have been cut. Meaning you can't trade or battle people online, or download the Dream Radar app. So these Pokemon you have are actually pretty valued trade-wise if you can level them up a bit more and transfer them to XY/ORAS/USUM.

Thank you!!!! I knew what Dream Radar was, but I didn't know it was possible to find level 10 legendaries!!!
Yeah me neither, until I did some research. Pretty cool.
Glad I could help!
I use Dream Radar to troll people asking for level 10 Giratina on the GTS.
Actually, you can still get Dream Radar and transfer pokemon from that to b2w2, it's just most people don't even know about it
Yeah, you can transfer Pokemon from Gen 5 because it doesn't require internet -- they cut the wifi for BW/BW2. You can use Dream Radar if you already have it, but you can't purchase it or the event that allowed to catch the Kami's anymore, I didn't think.
Actually you can still purchase it.
Well, I'll be damned.
