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.

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.

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.
