Ah man would I love a Mega Zoroark that dropped Illusion! I'm not sure what ability would fit it, it may be dependent on the theme they choose for the theoretical Mega. (Like if it gains any new typings etc.)
(Or at least give Zorua and Zoroark a hidden ability please)

I really like Zoroark a lot and I want to be able to use Zoroark as Zoroark, not something else, haha!
To fit Zoroark's theme I can see Pickpocket or Magician, but of course that would defeat the purpose of a Mega. Maybe Infiltrator, Prankster or Defiant?

Infiltrator sounds the most plausible. I don't think Zoroark learns much in the way of support for Prankster to be useful, and it works better with Special Attacks.

So here's an idea: Mega Donphan with Speed Boost. We all know Donphan can curl into a ball, so how about the Mega focus on this and when it rolls it keeps rolling faster, thus Speed Boost. The stat focuses could be on Atk, Def + Sp.Def and just leave Speed alone since it has Speed Boost anyway. Sp.Atk is useless.

I know I'm probably known for being overly critical of people's ideas, so you can have a go at mine and tell me if you don't like/if it's bad, I don't mind :p

That sounds interesting... but let's not have a super-tanky thing with high attack that then gets faster every turn.
I mean, it's not a bad idea, but it sounds... scary, to say the least.

Well Donphan has no healing move and no stat-boosting move (like Swords Dance), so it wouldn't be as scary as it seems imo. Also wouldn't have a boosting item (Life Orb) or boosting ability (like Tough Claws).

Nah, Silktree has you thoroughly beaten there.

I always thought Donphan should be Ground/Normal. Certainly it feels pretty similar to Sawsbuck or Bibarel as a mammal that has an affinity for <type>. But it wouldn't really make sense for a mega-evolution, I guess. :/

All this Mega Gallade fanart makes me want this bloody game to release immediatelly so I can have him on my team as soon as possible. Man, I think he's the main thing that's keeping me hyped for this game.

I would breed a Ralts, but my main goal right now is to get my perfect beautiful competitive-grade shiny Greninja. I already hatched one...
...it had Torrent.

On Donphan, they could easily update his movepool with a boosting move... I just hope they don't, if they go with that concept...

Mega Gallade has a definite spot on my team. Not very many of these new megas impress me, and also Game Greak did say that ORAS have more new megas than X and Y.

I can't believe that OR/AS are getting released this month and there is NOTHING to be found about a Water/Fairy Mega Milotic. This will be such a huge fail if it's left out! If you had asked me six months ago I would have told you that you were crazy if you thought it wasn't going to happen.

Gallade looks pretty cool with a black cape.

Also, Sableye is in his regular form has blue gemstones as eyes, in Mega form they're red, as well as the giant one it uses as a shield and the shiny of the Mega form has them be green. Sapphire/Ruby/Emerald anyone? =P

Shiny mega Glalie is evil and stoned? I really like the green Mega [email protected], pity I can't breed for one. Metagross, Rayquaza and Gallade have the best coloured shinies, as we expected, although I think something about the awesomeness of a black Rayquaza is lost in its mega form. :/ Green Beedrill looks fantastic.
