High hypersonic is:
At those speeds, friction heating quickly becomes a serious issue. Real life hypersonic craft have to cope with friction heating issues and they deal with it by using exotic ceramics that can withstand temperatures capable of softening or melting steel. Ninjask would probably burn itself up trying to even approach those speeds.
Ninjask can probably reach speeds equal to a WWII jet plane (~500 mph). I have Dragonite capable of supercruise (at Mach 1.5) and Pidgeot capable of hitting Mach 2 in a short burst.

Cynthia once had it all: powerful pokémon, fame and hordes of adoring fans. But Ho-oh's campaign tears her life asunder. Now to survive this deadly new world, she must do the one thing that she never wanted: kill. Follow her trials through a world at war in Poké Wars: Downfall of a Champion
If you believe the 'Dex, Golurk can fly at Mach speeds. The big guy can probably hit around Mach 2--which is a bit weird, when you think about it. (Slow on the ground, speedy as heck in the air. Kinda weird if you ask me.)
Maybe in the pokemon world miles are shorter? Because a kid can walk from one side of it to another fairly quickly.
I don't think the speed stats are a representation of a Pokemon's top speeds under ideal conditions, but factor in acceleration, maneuverability and agility as relevant to combat situations. For example, it's possible that Pidgeot can reach Mach 2 speeds, but not while confined to a battling arena.
I'm pretty sure that most of the Dex's entries about the speeds of Pokemon are way, way, way over-exaggerated. And how on earth do can you control yourself when you are at Mach speeds? I'm pretty sure no Pokemon can reach a speed faster than 300 MPH.
