Opps, looks like I made a mistake. Taodragon, you are right, Mega is a dub term. Here's the digivolutions names.
Main Digivolutionary Stages (English adaptation terms with Japanese terms in brackets):
Fresh (幼年期 I Younenki I?, lit. "Baby I")
In-Training (幼年期 II Younenki II?, lit. "Baby II")
Rookie (成長期 Seichouki?, lit. "Child")
Champion (成熟期 Seijukuki?, lit. "Adult")
Ultimate (完全体 Kanzentai?, lit. "Perfect")
Mega (究極体 Kyuukyokutai?, lit. "Ultimate")
... -_-' What, were you expecting a cookie?
I can't say I like these "Mega Evolutions," but my opinion doesn't matter to Gamefreak anyway.
I do have a question, though: Are these "Mega Evolutions" equivalent to a fourth evolutionary stage, or are they just usable in battle?
Also, I don't like most of the designs either, as they seem lazy and unimpressive. Literally all they did to ampharos was add a few pieces of fluff. The only one that I did like was MegaLucario, but its dreadlocks do seem weird.
Another thing I'm wondering about is the prevalence of these evolutions. Will every Pokemon get one, or just a select few? I'm assuming all the starters will have one, as it would be strange to just single out blaziken.

Monorpale is my favorite Gen 6 Pokemon so far. If you have a problem with it, you can talk to the tassel hand.
1) People who don't care about their existence.
2) People who dislike their existence because of their close similarities with Digimon.
3) People who dislike their existence because they feel it wasn't really necessary.
4) People who love their existence because of their awesome similarities with Digimon.
5) People who like their existence because it's something new.
A) People who definitely will not use them.
B) People who will definitely use them.
C) People who will use whatever they find, whether they're Mega-Pokémon or not.
Of course, there are some in-between cases, but the majority of people fall into one of the combinations of numbers and letters. I just so happen to be 1-A.
And you questioned my sanity. My Anime List
I really wish people wouldn't view this as a 100% positive or 100% negative. Instead, they can see the potential of this is executed properly and discuss it based on that. Yes, it's different, and perhaps not entirely necessary, but it is something we must get used to, so we might as well see the potential in it, and talk about the potential negatives.
Also, MegaAmpharos did not grow hair!!! It's the much wanted wool that was missing from its original form.
I've talked about the potential in evolite, and how I've desperately wanted GF to return to older generation Pokemon and "fix" some of the evolution lines, give some of the older Pokemon, or the early game Pokemon, purposes. I felt like items was a realistic approach to this, but seeing as they created a new way to evolve during battle, I feel like this could just be an additional way to push players to be creative, develop unique teams, and fix problems with UU/NU Pokemon.

MegaAmpharos has beautiful hair. They should make a move just for its hair.

I just want a MegaGardevoir! Then I'd die happy (depending whether the art for her is good or not).
I'm really loving Mega Evolution; it is somehow fresh and trhilling.
I was kiddin with a friend a few months ago and we ACTUALLY said "What's next in X/Y? Chou Shinka?" (Reffering to Digimon) and when I saw Mewtwo's "new form change" trailer, I said "hunn... That's an evolution! look those swirling beams! just like in BW anime!" But well... Moving on, They are super cool... no! MEGA cool!
Maybe this "Mega Stone" is related to that odd bracelet the trainer has... You know, it has the DNA symbol, and we saw that symbol in the last trailer, so maybe what we saw was the -in battle- evolution of Mewtwo to Mega Mewtwo...

As for the Mega evolutions, everyone has said what I'd have said.
It's time to return to the old, soaring back to Hoenn!
It's occurred to me that assuming its stats don't change any, Mega Mawile is likely going to have the highest unboosted attack stat in the game, beating out a Thick Club Marowak by a couple points.
It would still need its other stats to be increased in order to make it usable, though, because it's not getting anywhere outside of Trick Room with below average HP and defenses on top of horrible speed.
I also despise the fact that they don't gain new names but instead all just get 'mega' stuck to the front of their current names. That too isn't very pokemon at all. It's again very Digimon-like, hence the oh-so-hated yet completely appropriate comparisons.
My only gripe with Megas is that they've seem to given it to pokemon with a notable fanbase of their own, Mawile aside. I'm thinking they showed us the Megas of popular pokes just to get older fans in the swing of things (so far it seems to have to opposite effect, though -_-''), so I highly doubt these guys are the only Megas we'll see this Gen.
...However, if I see a Mega Pseudo Legend of any kind, I will get pretty annoyed. XD
...A wise one once told me love was like a pokemon battle. You can fight it, you can run away from it; or you can end up without any balls when the opportunity arises.
