Marshadow received a motivation in I Choose You!. Pokemon don't need some sob backstory (re: every XY mythical) or history with humans to be unique. The very first chapter of Marshadow's legend was written with that movie. Thematically, I feel like this was very appropriate for a movie attempting to channel a remake of the Shudo-led OS anime. Pokemon have their own world, too, and it's only something humans are a small part of.

If there's a problem, it's that Marshadow's connection to Alola wasn't made clear by the anime. Marshadow can use a Z-Move, and he doesn't need a crystal, ring or trainer to use it. There wasn't enough time in the movie to explain it, but Marshadow cameo'd in Alola, making him the only other mythical aside from Darkrai to appear in the anime. There was opportunity to explain this that wasn't utilized properly.
