    Oh, and it took me forever to realise that Bellossom was even related to Gloom, probably had something to do with them looking nothing like one another.
    I thought the same thing for all three of those cases :P

    When I first saw the title of this thread I thought it would be about corrupted evolutions of Pokemon, like a corollary to Digimon's SkullGreymon and other "dark digivolutions."

    Anyway...

    Back in the ancient times of when Gen 2 was first debuting, I remember there were a lot of people who thought that Marill (or, as it was popularly known before it debuted, "Pikablu") was some sort of water evolution of Pikachu. I also thought, like others have mentioned, that Plusle and Minun would be related to the Pikachu family in some way when I first saw them in Gen 3.

    I had a similar misconception (mentioned here already), except I attempted a trade with Slowpoke instead of Slowbro, so I was surprised this evolution happened because I didn't expect it.

    I agree with the other poster: you have a cool uncle.

    Thanks for reading.

    That sounds like a cool uncle.

    My friend thought Trapinch was a stand-alone pokemon and didn't believe that it was the pre-evo of the Flygon family. I evolved a Trapinch in front of her for proof.

    Way back when I barely had enough information about Pokemon, I thought Mew evolved into Mewtwo.

    To tell you the truth, I thought that Sylveon looked like that it could evolve from Victini. While I was aware that legendries cannot evolve, Sylveon just looked too much like a Victini in form of a fox.

    A few seconds later, I looked at the information about Sylveon, saying that it evolves from Eevee.

    Back before the Gen V mons were completely revealed, I thought for sure that Alomomola was an evolution of Luvdisc. None of the others really caught me off guard, although I did try to get an Umbreon by giving Eevee a Moon Stone. Was very surprised when it didn't work...

    I thought Shedninja was an alt evolution of Nincada until last week (I never bothered getting or evolving one until now)

    I have two Ninjasks now :|

    There's actually a glitch in Red/Blue (no surprise there) where that happens if you have a Growlithe in your party.

    I thought that Throh evolved into Sawk. So when I caught Sawk, I attempted to breed a Throh...

    In grade school, when Ruby and Sapphire first came out, I had an argument with another student over Plusle and Minun (I had the guidebook so I already knew they couldn't evolve), but the other kid said that the evolution line went Plusle -> Minun -> Pichu -> Pikachu -> Raichu.

    Also, when I first saw it, I thought Lickilicky looked too stupid to evolve from Lickitung and thought it was a pre-evo instead.

    Aside from the obvious Luvdisc/Alomomola and Tauros/Bouffalant connections, I thought Remoraid evolved into Mantine due to Remoraid sticking underneath Mantine in Colosseum and XD. I also thought that Zigzagoon evolved into Furret because of the color similarities.

    I think Gogoat is a Tarous evolution.

    Also, @^, Remoraid is required for Mantyke to evolve into Mantine.

    I was told about the whole Pikablu thing when I was nine, but didn't believe it.

    One of my friends thought Togepi evolved into Chansey before Togetic was released.

    As for me, I used to think Plusle evolved into Minun, and that Arbok evolved into Seviper. (Note: I believed this before I saw the infamous episode in which the dub claimed it, because Jesse had a Seviper and it was a snake, and even had the same voice that Ekans did, at least as far as I could tell.)

    I thought that for a little while too but then I realized that if Slowbro reverts back into a Slowpoke if Shellder lets go of its tail then there's no way that a Slowbro can become Slowking.
    I read somewhere (a false rumour) that Slowking was from Slowbro; i assumed that the same Shellder let go of the tail THEN clamped onto the head. It wasn't until i saw artwork for the TCG that i learned the truth.

    I too assumed a relationship between Shellos & Lapras. I got a Shellos TCG card before playing any gen IV games.

    When i first saw Shuppet (in Colosseum) i thought it was a Misdreavus prevo. Also i thought that Illumise was the male only and Volbeat was female only; since Illumise looks like Mozart and Volbeat resembles a ladybird's colouring - even though there are male ladybirds the name automatically implies femininity.

    Wait, it doesn't? I have never owned a Sawk or Throh but I thought they were a family...
