    My top favorite is definitely Mega Evolution. It was something completely new and unexpected, and it gave several formerly useless Pokemon a chance to become useful in a new way. One of my favorite features in the series.

    Some others I really like are these:
    Battle Maison: An improvement over the Subway, it made it easier than ever before to get BP, though it is a bit easier to "break" since you can use Megas while your opponents cannot.
    Battle Chateau: Excellent place for training and level grinding.
    Looker Missions: A good post-game story which I appreciated since I wasn't too fond of the main story.
    Hordes: Made EV-training easier than ever before.

    I picked the Friend Safari cuz it was the most useful feature in terms of Dex filling and it was also useful for shiny hunting since shinies could be found easier there.

    The Trainer Customization. And I am so so glad it will be back in Pokémon Sun and Moon.

    I can't pick just one thing, so I'll mention a few (a lot work for both XY and ORAS, but whatever):

    Horde battles: I am terrible at Super Training, so I'm glad XY also introduced these to make EV training easier/quicker. I've also caught several shiny Pokemon on both XY & ORAS from Hordes, so there's that too.
    Mega Evolution: Probably my favourite battle change/mechanic/thing since the Physical/Special split in Gen 4. It's encouraged me to use Pokemon I haven't used much before and/or wouldn't put on a main team before, e.g. Mawile on my Y team.
    Battle Maison: (Very) frustrating at times, but I find it to be a very easy and fast way to earn Battle Points (Y is the first game where I've ever maxed out my BP).

    Other things: Destiny Knot IV breeding, Battle Chateau & Lumiose Restaurants, Pokemon Amie

    My top picks would be Mega Evolution, the Friend Safari and Pokémon-Amie. Mega Evolution because it at least several Pokémon a chance that otherwise would be severely overshadowed. Friend Safari due to how rewarding it was because HA Pokémon can be encountered there and all wild Pokémon in the Friend Safari are guaranteed to have at least 2 perfect 31 IVs. Pokémon-Amie because it was so fun to play with your Pokémon and it made Yveltal look cute and allowed me to own a Sylveon horde in Y. But the most notable out of these to me was Mega Evolution because it had a severe impact on the competitive scene, giving Mawile and Kangaskhan a spot in Ubers.

    I can't believe Pokemon Amie wasn't up there.

    I hope you have a good day!

    Mega Evolution is easily the top choice for me, and as a shiny hunter, the PokéRadar and Chain Fishing were close. It felt good to start chaining again.

    Mega Evolution was my favorite Gen VI feature because it helped make old Pokemon more relevant and special.

    Mega Evolution was my favourite because it made Pokemon that were boring cool again. Also, I loved the exp share because now I didn't have to switch pokemon in and out. However, it made elite 4 a bit too easy.

    Man, the looker episode really added something and kept me playing. It was nice and mysterious. I hope Sun/Moon will have something like that too!
    I liked the mini games in pokémon amie, for when I had nothing to do.
    I liked the character customization alot.
    The mega evolution was really fun. The animations looked very cool and to search for the stones was nice too. I had to get used to it though.
    I also liked that you had so many friends/rivals, but they should have appeared more often through the storyline.
    I liked the rollerskates, and the overall graphics of the game.

    Actually, I did like Character Customization as well, now that I've used it 2 (or 3, can't remember) times already.

    I voted "Other" because I liked the 3D graphics and the trainer customization. Everything else was "eh" to me.

    Trainer customization, trainer customization, trainer customization!!!
    And Battle Chateau so I could quickly raise lots of cash for clothes!
    And Lumiose Restaurants/Hotel Risschime so I could play house with that girl character of mine! She'd eat at the restaurants and work at the hotel!
    And of course there's the money being made from those places so she could continue expanding her wardrobe!
    It's not a good idea to get too emotionally invested in the repetitive 20-year-old commercial that markets the Pokemon games. Be invested in the actual Pokemon games instead!

    I'd have to go with Mega Evolution. It was great to see some old favourites get new designs and new typings. I also enjoyed hunting around Kalos for the Mega Stones (although the game exclusive versions were kind of annoying)

    I did enjoy the Battle Chateau too. I always enjoy features that enable a rematch with the Gym Leaders. And of course, I am a huge sucker for trainer customisation. I loved being able to change clothes and hairstyle at my leisure,=.

    Trainer customization.

    IMO, mega evolution is a nice concept, but they could've implemented it better. Some pokemon were better off with a normal evolution, some pokemon were already OP even before getting a mega and some of the megas are just broken and have underwhelming designs. I still like M.E and want S&M to have them though, bc i love some of the designs and the concept of your pokemon transforming in the middle of the battle just like a Magic girl haha

    There's at least three I enjoyed a lot. Trainer Customization, Pokemon-Amie, and Mega Evolution.

    Trainer Customization: Love that I could be unique with my own outfits this time around. I got bad fashion sense, but no matter what I combined it still looked good lol.

    Pokemon-Amie: When XY came out, I couldn't stop playing in Amie. I would play the Yarn Tossing game every damn time I opened up the game. I don't do it as much now, but I do enjoy looking at my pokemon in it once in a while. Feeding it and such.

    Mega Evolution: I really liked the idea that Pokemon could evolve further when they had a really great bond with their trainer. I felt closer to my Pokemon this way which was really nice.

    Easily Mega Evolution. I also liked Looker Episode and Friend Safaris, though.

    For me, it would have to be the Fairy-type. Gen VI didn't really bring much else good with it.

    Mega Pokemon are without a doubt the worst thing that GameFreak has added to the series since 1996. I find it entirely hypocritical that they would release such a broken mechanic in the same generation where they literally showed "we will change a Pokemon's base stats if they are underperforming".
    I got Pokemon X the day before release and beat in within a couple of days. The Looker episode literally made me stop playing for 3 months due to how boring and tedious it was.
    The Friend Safari, whilst a step up from the Dream World, isn't big enough to make me think "Yeah this makes obtaining hidden abilities so much easier".
    The Battle Maison was effectively proof that GameFreak really don't care about post-game anymore, especially when combined with the Looker episode.
    The Battle Chateau was decent but far too costly for what it brought along. It also wasn't very fun for Gym Leader rematches.
    The Battle Institute wasn't even an addition. It was in Gen V.
    The nerf to weather proved that GameFreak didn't actually care about competitive, but instead just shutting up bad players. Gen III and Gen IV proved that infinite weather was fine. Gen V brought infinite rain, which was slightly too good. In response, GameFreak makes all four weathers entirely unviable? Perfect. Literally all they had to do was make it so Cloud Nine / Air Lock and perhaps Defog could all remove weather effects on the field. It would solve the problem of "the only way to counter weather is to bring your own", which is literally what caused the Gen V weather wars.
    Don't even get me started on the Knock Off buff.
