[1.16.5 - 9.0.1] Hidden Ability resets to Normal Ability after evolution fix completed

Ticket description:
I bred a HA Gligar for a tournament and ev trained it before evolving it. I didn't check its ability after evolution because I assumed it was fine - but found later during the tourney that its ability had become Sand Veil. I had an admin restore its ability, but this shouldn't happen!

Hi there,

I've been able to confirm that evolving a HA Gilgar sets the ability back to a Sand Veil upon evolution, and this is definitely a bug. Testing with several other pokemon though, this seems to only be the case where the evolved pokemon has a different hidden ability to the pre-evolved form. Most likely, the game attempts to set Immunity as Gliscors ability, but upon finding this is not a valid ability defaults back to the first ability (a non-hidden one).

Passing this ticket to internal now, thanks!
