I'm not sure if this is the kind of thing that goes here, but if one of my pokemon got Pokerus from a hacked pokemon that I got over WiFi, would the pokemon/its Pokerus be considered hacked?
No it would not.

Nothing seems out of the ordinary; just a Smeargle that somebody got from a link trade as an Egg.
It would be best to check IV's though, because it could be hacked to have 6 31IV's.

You just trade eggs either through wifi or wireless trading.

colachuckgirl we need the HP stat as well but from what I can see it doesn't look like a hack. The IV's that I could determine are normal.
?/ 11 / 14 / 30 / 20 / 29
My guess is that this is a RNG pokemon. Other than the legitimacy of this pokemon are there any concerns you had?

this is not directed at you dear but
Rant on: Why do people keep forgetting the health point stats? I stopped checking this thread because people would forget this stat. It is necessary to determine the IV's. Rant off.
Sorry about that but it's been bugging me.

Does it really say egg obtained at Twinleaf, like you wrote? You can't get eggs in Twinleaf...

No, it actually says the egg was obtained in Twinleaf Town.
Then I would say that it is a hack on those grounds.

I am unsure of EVs / IVs though the current level is 34. I feel a bit dumb but I forget how to check EVs/IVs :(

e] There are currently not any EVs on the Deoxys. Am checking the IVs now
e2] I used the IV calculator and it said either the nature or attack was wrong and the IVs are (Hp,atk,def,sp.a,sp.d, spd) 16, 30,26, 9, 20, 22

That's definitely legit. Chansey have ridiculously high HP, only surpassed by Blissey.

EDIT: It's attack and defense are also extremely low, they can be as low as 13 at LEVEL 100. That's just... wrong.

Yeah, Chansey's stat distribution is pretty off but those stats seem very normal to me. And the location data and everything else look perfectly legit.
