Will it still always show it as Iron Barbs until it evolves?

I would have thought it was impossible for Ferroseed to get its HA but Serebii says it's available...
That's the reason I'm asking. Bulbapedia confirmed that it will always show as Iron Barbs in Gen 6, and I'm wondering if it's the same in Gen 7. Though considering Nidoqueen and Nidorina still can't breed, the Festival Plaza is a thing, and every other thing that was a step back from and/or not fixed from previous games, I'm guessing the answer will be 'Yes'.

According to experience (¬_¬), Ferroseed's hidden ability is also Iron Barbs (has the same value). When Ferroseed evolves into Ferrothorn, it changes to Anticipation.
