Mega Pokemon and what I think of them.

Now, I'm looking forward to XY, like anyone else. But there is one, ONE thing that didn't click with me: Mega Pokemon. Not only the names, but the concept and designs. This is what I think of each Mega Pokemon:
MegaAmpharos- Could they be any less creative? All they really did was put thick weave on its head, and then add curly fur on its tail with red gems. Oh, and it's Electric/Dragon. Would have been awesome if we didn't have Zekrom. At least Mold Breaker is good.
MegaAbsol- Decent. I like the fur/wings, hair, and more scythe-like tail. The extra layers of fur on its legs are a nice touch too. Magic Bounce is great, but would have preferred it as a DW ability for the original. Still prefer Absol.
MegaMawile- Just a palette swap with a *fiercer* face on it...and it doesn't even look that great. Don't really like the fact that they messed with its type, either (both of them are now Steel/Fairy). Huge Power should be interesting, though.
MegaLucario- Ew. It looks like someone was trying out a Pokemon fusion with Yveltal and Lucario...and this happened. Adaptability would have been better on a normal typed Pokemon. Not bad by itself, though.
MegaBlaziken- Looks okay. I like the furry X around its face, but everything else, not so much. It still has speed boost, which is good/bad.
MegaKangaskhan- Looks good, even though it's jsut the baby in its pouch being passed off as a Mega.
MegaBlastoise- Not bad, the three cannons are a nice touch, even if they're not the most original (it turns out a search for MegaBlastoise on Google showed some fanart depicting it with at least one extra cannon.)
MegaVenusaur- Lame...its back flower looks more detailed, which is good, but the flower on its head just MURDERS it. Without the unnecessary head flower, it would look better.
MegaCharizard- I thought this would be the worst one, but it's not. I like the middle horn on its head, and the sharper wings.
(Not much change for the Kanto starters overall, which is probably a good thing, as the simpler, the better.)
MegaMasquerain- PLEASE LEAVE IT ALONE
Absol > Blaziken > Kangaskhan > Charizard = Blastoise > Mawile > Lucario > Ampharos = Venusaur
(The bold > is the cutoff between good Mega Pokemon and bad ones. Didn't mention MegaMewtwo because he's been out for a while.)
