This Event Raikou has Classic Ribbon, which prevents it from being traded on GTS

It is possible you could tell an event form an original by the pokeball the pokemon is in, because normally event pokemon are in cherish ball, it’s impossible to get a cherish ball through regular game play without cheating. On the other hand a raikou that is caught in a game would be in a regular pokeball or a masterball.

Also some event pokemon have special ribbons that cannot be obtained through regular gameplay or even by cheating, I don’t know if event raikou came with ribbons though.

This isn’t a sure fire strategy but it is another way to judge.

Hope this helps, sorry if it doesn’t
