    This seems to be a Dialga soft-resetted from the Sinjoh event in HGSS. It having the ideal nature is sketchy (as well as being obtained in a Link Trade), but if it doesn't have 31 in any IVs, then it's probably legal at best.

      IVs (Individual Values) are basically hidden values that determine the final value of a stat. IVs can range from 0 to 31. For example, if your Timid Dialga has a Speed IV of 31, then, at level 100, it's the fastest Dialga you could possibly obtain (as Timid nature increases Speed and decreases Attack). Whereas a Brave Dialga (+Attack -Speed) with 0 Speed IV is the slowest stat-wise. Here is a link to the Bulbapedia page that describes how to find the NPC in-game that can check your IVs.

      As for if it's rare... Well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, no? A shiny Dialga from the Johto region itself is pretty rare, but in my personal opinion, anyone who's wanted one has probably already caught it in the wild in gen 6 or 7, or obtained one from the SUM2013 shiny event distribution. It is still very valuable to someone who likes collecting regional shinies, as well as newer players who missed the event or haven't caught a shiny one in the wild yet. It's definitely worth at least a shiny legendary in return, if you decide to trade it. This is all assuming it doesn't have perfect IVs and is therefore a blatant hack, of course.

        Um... What do you mean by '7 in all categories'? Those are standard level 1 Manaphy moves, and event Pokemon can't be traded over the GTS so that makes sense (it should have a special Ribbon like other event Pokemon do).

          Stats at level 1 are pretty much useless, as a huge number of Pokemon have the same stats whether the IV is 0 or 31, and for those that don't, there's usually only 1 or 2 points difference so the only thing I'd be able to tell you is "the IV is higher than 15 at least" (for example). Manaphy falls under the first example; using an IV calculator and assuming neutral nature, a stat of 7 could be any IV between 0 and 31 inclusive for each stat.

          However, the first bit is the more interesting point. There's only one Manaphy event I'm aware of that is obtained as an egg, and that's the one from Pokemon Ranger. So if the Manaphy is from the Sinnoh region and has no unusual stats (even RNGing it to have good stats is hard for that specific egg, so if it has good stats then it's dodgy), then it's possibly legal. Else it's definitely a hack.

            If the OT is フウラシティ, then there's nothing fishy as it seems to be a normal event Zeraora (assuming it doesn't have perfect IVs, once again). There is the possibility of the Wonder Card being injected via PowerSaves though (which is not allowed on PC). Wonder Cards injected this way always have the same claim date (for example, 20th Anniversary event Keldeo injected with PowerSaves will always show the claim date as 2016-10-04 no matter who injects it on what cart). I'm not certain of the predetermined date for Zeraora, but I might be able to check if I can find where I put my PowerSaves. If the date of the hack and the date of yours match, then yours was most likely injected with PowerSaves considering it was obtained from a random Link Trade.

              Once again, without the Pokemon's IVs, I can't accurately tell you if it's a blatant hack or not (remember, you can find out where the IV judge is and what his analysis means in this link here). The details you've given me match the 10th Anniversary distribution, but these specific event Pokemon are quite rare these days; at best, it's definitely a clone.
