Huge thanks to Blue Dragon for my EPIC avatar & sig
Oh, is that only for official tournaments, then (don't know too much about online battling)? In that case, it could have been hacked.
I don't think it's possible to hack beyond the limits of the Pokemon.
I have a question about Gyro Ball. You know the damage that move deals depends on how big the difference between battlers' Speeds are, right? Let's say I'm using my Ferrothorn against a Dragonite, who keeps using Agility. Dragonite's Speed is increasing, right? Does Gyro Ball's damage increase every time Dragonite uses Agility? Or let's say someone uses Cotton Spore on my Ferrothorn and my Speed decreases. Does that increase the damage Gyro Ball will deal?
And I also have a question about Swagger. That move increases the target's Attack by two stages, but leaves it confused. After the target snaps out of its confusion, do they keep the Attack boost they got earlier, or do they lose it?

@Anser; Since Gyro Ball's damage calculation is based on both parties current speed when the attack is used, any modifiers such as Agility and Cotton Spore would be taken into account. For Swagger, the attack stages remain raised until the end of battle or another ability changes them.
Next up is the hacked Thundurus. The hack checks for pokemon are done for GTS Battles/Trades. WiFi/IR Trades/Battles don't have the same checks. It is possible to raise EV and Stat Values above the Pokemon's normal values. It would revert to its true stats if leveled or moved from box to party. I don't believe the level adjustment from flat battles reverts the value.
Has everyone somehow forgotten that Thundurus's ability is Prankster? (I'm assuming, naturally, you didn't battle it in therian forme.)
All of his moves get +1 priority, so that you can only beat him to the punch if your pokemon is faster and has prankster as well; or if your pokemon uses a priority move like pursuit, extremespeed, or aqua jet.

Arceus and the game auto adjusted the stats back to the maximum for the nature boosted stat, mid-range for the neutral, and low range for the nature resisted stat. Thus leaving me to conclude that it's impossible to max out all the stats at one time.
Starmie's Speed is 358, which is faster than Thundurus's Speed limit.
