So I got a sheer force bagon from a trade and evolved it into a salamance but it had intimidate instead of moxie. and unless I'm mistaken sheer force is the dream world ability for bagon as moxie is for salamance.
What happened?

Well lets see. When it evolved into shelgon, did it have the overcoat ability? It should have. At any rate, I have some hypotheses.
-glitch: sometimes the simple answer is the right one
-hacking: not on your part but on on the trader. A lot of people hack, using pokegen or similar methods, to obtain dreamworld Pokemon. These hacked Pokemon tend to have issues like this.
its not dream world: it never had a hidden ability in the first place. Your trader deceived you without you noticing
