Why do people not like Delphox's design?

Delphox ranks high on my list of greatness. I can't find many faults in its design. I know to each his/her own but it somehow feels odd to me that some people not just dislike but actually hate it.

To me, Delphox looks better than Blaziken...but that's against the majority.

I like Braxian, but Delphox's ear hair is just too big.

It's a wizard...
That's why I dont like it.

At least it's not another Fire/Fighting type though

Its body is too plain. Just a red triangle. They could have gone all out with an awesome looking cloak, but instead just gave the thing a bedsheet with a head hole and sleeves

3D makes it's face look funny when zoomed out enough.

I never heard many complaints about Delphox's design. The one who had the most hate from what I heard is the grass starter's.

Delphox looks like some type of wizard to me.
Crap, I edit a lot.
Sometimes even serious times have their funny moments:

I think the ear hair throws a lot of people off it. that, and some people think it's furry bait. Then again, people howl about Gardevoir looking 'too human'...

Not super cute like Fennekin.
Not a furry like people thought it would become. Edit: Well, not furry BAIT, I mean.

It just doesn't fit peoples preconceived expectations is all.
Though, yeah, personal taste is most likely the majority of it.
On 12/02/12 I said I wouldn't change this until something impossible happened. Now, Earthbound just got re-released in the US.

While I always saw Fennekin as ugly, I like Blaziken a tiny bit.
Delphox looks horrible I would say due to the ears and how the body just really terrible all around. While I find Fennekin ugly, it's not as ugly as it's final evolution at all.

Honestly, I liked it better when all I'd seen was a low-resolution photo that made it look like a scarecrow. The actual Delphox looks not quite cute enough to be cute and not nearly creepy enough to be thrilling.

Also, not really design-related, but I think its cry sounds an awful lot like a black person shouting "What's up, baaaaaabe?!"
