The "Welcome back" message only appears if the Pokemon you're receiving matches your own ID. Event distributions, such as Zarude, come with a preset trainer name and ID that almost certainly doesn't match your own. No reason for it to display the altered message in that case.

When someone asked how they knew it was the exact same gorilla, the Trainer said: “When you get a Pokemon from a trade, it says “Take good care of (Pokemon Name/Nickname)!” But when you recieve a Pokemon that you’ve previously traded before,like when you do a trade back to evolve Pokemon, it will say “Welcome back (Pokemon Name/Nickname)!” source: dextero.com

So, the message will say welcome back Zarude.

Hope it helps!
