Things you were wrong about in Gen 6

I'm sure we all placed a few guesses on things we figured would or could happen that ended up not being true through leaks and reveals. So lets put on our humble caps and just admit a few things that we ended up being wrong about.

For me the biggest ones I can think about are Flabebe not being just a single stage Pokemon, and Helioptile losing its Normal subtype upon evolving.

Nor Honedge or Trevenant to have any evolutionary relatives.

flabebe evolving thrice wasn't something i expected

Also didnt expect the start final evos :(

I thought Fennekin would be a quadruped but was pleasantly surprised by its final evo.

I thought Doublade would become a group of floating swords or a set of 3-4 swords connected by a central quad sheath. However the actual final was far more amazing.

I thought binacle was this generation's ugly pokemon that no one would use but it turned into the awesome barbaracle.

I thought Fennekin's evolutions would look awesome, I was wrong.

It isn't disproved yet, but so far it is. Nintendo cash cowing over DLC (but not all of it), adding payed DLC event pokemon/shinys/former starters/etc etc. Who knows, it may happen in the future.
Everything in life is a battle. Even peace itself is a battle to maintain it.

Expected water fighting and grass dark...
Pretty sure everyone expected it too

There once was an ugly barnacle

but then it evolved

and everyone who made fun of it died.

For me I got Goomy's 3rd line wrong, I really wanted it to be dragon/fairy and it doesn't appear to be a pseudo legendary either.

I really didn't expect Honedge to evolve.
