A little more insight into Hidden Abilities

From TVTropes:


And based on theories thanks to Bulbapedia:


-Gloom gets Stench. Duh.
-Doduo and Dodrio get Tangled Feet. Whose feet wouldn't get tangled if you have, say, two or three heads fighting to take control?
-Snorlax and Munchlax's Gluttony is a little obvious.
-Sneasel and Weavile have Pickpocket. Sneasel and Weavile are known for their tendencies to steal things and cause mischief.
-Skitty and Delcatty get Wonder Skin. Skitty and Delcatty are known for being aristocrat-sort of pokemon (Aristocats reference, anyone?). It's no wonder they wouldn't want anything to tarnish their skin.
-Sableye and Purrloin's line get Prankster. No surprises there.
-Zangoose gets Toxic Boost, the only pokemon to have that ability. What's Zangoose's arch-rival? Seviper.
-Exeggutor's line and Tropius get Harvest. Both are known for having fruit-things that are edible, Tropius in particular.
-Beldum's line gets Light Metal. They wanted to ditch their heavy weight and float around weightlessly. Manga reference to the max.
-Drifloon and Drifblim have Flare Boost. They're based on hot-air balloons.
-Solosis' line gets regenerator. Solosis and its evolutions are based on cells, which can....regenerate.
-Axew, Fraxure, and Haxorus get Unnerve. Who(other than myself) has not pissed their pants on seeing a giant dinosaur with axes for teeth and an attack stat of 147(three points lower than some legendaries) ready to slice you and your pathetic pokemon to shreds?
-Beartic gets Swift Swim. Polar Bears are known for being relatively good swimmers, and with the melting polar ice caps---you get me.
