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."
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.
Hi, I'm Rose. I love music, alcohol, pointless Internet debates and being a snob about my choices in entertainment. I write a lot. You can read some of my writing at Autostraddle.com, the best site for LBTQ women on the Internet, where I am a staff writer. Or the funhouse that is my tumblr. I also write music sometimes, and post the better fruits of my labors on my SoundCloud.
I agree with the other poster: you have a cool uncle.
Thanks for reading.

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.

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.
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.)

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.
