Gen VI Pokemon reviews (Part 1)

I put it off a little, but not too much. Here I'll talk about the designs (and maybe a few other things, but we mostly just know designs right now) of the currently revealed Generation 6 Pokemon/Mega Forms. There are a little over 30, last time I checked. There's a limit of 20 pictures per post, so I'll link to the Bulbapedia article for each Pokemon (I'll link directly to the pictures for the Mega Pokemon).
Edit: I typed the above paragraph before I decided on splitting it up into different parts. Which is why the "20 pictures" thing doesn't make any sense. My bad.
Remember that this is just my personal opinion. There aren't any currently known 6th generation Pokemon I outright dislike, but there are quite a few I'm indifferent towards.
This is the first part, I'll post the second part reviewing the rest of them later. Hopefully tomorrow.
I don't care too much about Chespin. It has a decent design, and it's obviously unique in that it's the only mammal grass starter, and one of the few mammal grass-types in general. One thing I like about Chespin is that it looks very...woody. That's not exactly an adjective I use a lot. I'm not sure if any of the brown areas are fur, or what, but it's obviously supposed to resemble a chestnut, and to a lesser extent wood. Most grass types don't have seeds/nuts/wood incorporated into their design at all, so I think Chespin looks very unique for a grass type.
I'm not nearly as into Fennekin's design as everyone else is. It's quite similar to Ninetales and Vulpix, but it's less majestic looking and more outright adorable. I don't really know what else to say. It's a fire fox with really hairy ears. Like the Eeveelutions and Ninetales before it, being a fox pretty much makes it a fan favorite by default. I never really understood the fox obsession, but whatever.
This is my favorite of the new starters, largely because I love water types and because I prefer amphibians to mammals. It's similar to Seismitoad and Politoed, but not in a bad way. There needed to be a frog Pokemon anyway, Kalos is based on France, after all. I like how bubbles are incorporated into its design. The light blue and white color scheme is nice, and along with its neutral expression, makes Froakie one of the more calmer looking starters.
Yeah, I don't know if my reviews are actually any good, but I don't know what to say for half of these Pokemon. "Yeah, um...it's a fox." I'm attempting to go into more detail than that, but...eh.
...I'm not a fan of it. To be fair, I don't really like a lot of these legendaries, a lot of them are just so flashy and weird looking to me.
I'd state examples, but I don't want to be attacked any more than I might be already.I don't like how flashy the horns look, and its face is just...meh. I'm having a hard time describing why I don't like it much, but at least it's better than that other deer Pokemon. The "hoof blades" are cool, I can't deny that.
This guy, on the other hand, is a evil-looking badass. It's probably one of my favorite legendaries, though that isn't much on an accomplishment, really. It's just so dark looking, and I really like evilish Pokemon. It's flashy, but not in a weird way in my opinion, it's flashy in a "I will destroy you with red energy blasts" sort of way. I like how it's sorta flat, too, it makes it look streamlined. It also represents "Y" better than Xerneas represents "X", in my opinion. I don't love this thing, but it's cool. "Dark Aura" will also give Dark-type Pokemon a small boost in double battles, which makes me happy on the inside.
Sooooo cuuuute. It's probably my second favorite Eeveelution, second to only Flareon, though I think I might actually prefer Sylveon's design. Its eyes look cuter than the other Eeveelution's eyes, in my opinion. They also make it look more quirky, and I like quirky factors in Pokemon. The ribbons and feelers are really adorable, especially since it will wrap said feelers around its trainer, or something like that.
Pancham is alright. I don't really know what to say about its design, I'm pretty neutral towards it. The leaf gives it some more personality, which is cool....yeah.
I like Pangoro a lot more than Pancham. It's just such a badass. The totally dark eyes make it look so evil, though it's apparently more fair than its design would lead you to believe. The fur on its back resembles a coat or cape, which is cool. I can see this thing crushing skulls more easily than most Pokemon, heh.
Probably the most adorable early bird (Starly isn't bad either), assuming it is actually an early bird. It evolves into a Fire/Flying type, and all the "early birds" so far have been Normal/Flying, so I'm not sure. What I like about Fletchling is, while it doesn't scream "I evolve into a fire type", there are various hints towards it, such as the orange head and the ability to learn Flame Charge.
One of the cooler looking bird Pokemon in my opinion, along with Honchcrow. It reminds me a lot of Staraptor, only it looks cooler, especially with the flame patterns it has going on. While they are both fire birds, Talonflame looks nothing like Moltres at all, actually having feathers and looking somewhat more intimidating.
Eeeh, I don't really like this one much. The cap-like thing it has just looks...weird, in my opinion, and I think the random triangle in between its eyes looks weird. Weird in a bad way. I also don't understand why it's part normal. Girafarig, Bibarel, and Sawsbuck looked a lot like normal types (probably largely due to them being mammals), but I don't see why this one is part normal-type. Eh, I guess it's cool to have something to differentiate it from other pure electric types. I like the concept of a lizard "photosynthesizing", though, and I think its evolution might look awesome.
It's actually pretty cute, now that I look at it again. I like the idea of blending fluffy fur and a bush that looks like fur. Besides that, I dunno what to say.
I like Skiddo more. I'm not much of a goat person, and Gogoat, like Skiddo, is little more than a goat with "bush-fur", but Skiddo is cuter. It has some motorcycle characteristics, which is sorta neat, but it's not clever enough to make me like it more. I don't dislike Gogoat, I'm just indifferent towards it.
Noivern has a good design, combining a bat with a wyvern was a good idea. But for some reason, I don't like it much. It's just too "over the top" for my tastes. That said, there are some compliments I can give it. It succeeds in being a bat that looks absolutely nothing like Crobat or Gliscor, and it also succeeds in being a dragon that doesn't look too similar to any of the other dragons at all. The loudspeaker ears are a great play on echolocation, while also being offensively capable. It's such a badass.
Um, I...I dunno. I don't care about this thing. Its design is pretty basic...err, yeah. The buck tooth is sorta derpy, though, I like that.
It's fluffy, that's pretty cute. It's basically Scatterbug with a shitton of fur, and more blocky things. Again, I don't really know what to say about it. It has a fairly simple design, though less simple than its prevo's.
I really like Vivillon. It's adorable, for one thing. Two, it looks like it has pixels all over its body. Or at least, that's how I look at it, and for some reason I think that's awesome. Its eyes are also pixelated. All these pixels makes it look like a sort of "cyber bug" to me. Not in a robotic way, but in a Porygon esque way. Maybe they're just meaningless patterns, but I like to think they mean something cool.
