      TV Tokyo describes the story of the first two acts:

      Mega Evolution. A new evolutionary form introduced in the Kalos Region. Is it really possible for all Pokémon to undergo Mega Evolution? This story revolves around a young trainer named Alan and his partner Lizadon (Charizard). Allen's objective on his journey is to "defeat all Mega Evolution Pokémon and stand at the top of the strongest summit." Along their journey Allen and Charizard meet and battle with Mega Absol and Mega Gaburias (Mega Garchomp). Additionally, Allen will battle with Zumi (Siebold), one of the Kalos Elite Four. Does Siebold also have a Mega Evolution Pokémon? Why is Allen so obsessed with Mega Evolution? And what is the real purpose of his journey?

      Since this past weekend, the official Pokémon English website is streaming two "Mega Evolution Pokédex" shorts, each featuring Alain and Mairin explaining the Mega Evolution of two different Pokémon, Mega Swampert and Mega Sceptile. The shorts were originally shown after the credits of the Japanese airing of the Pokémon XY anime series.
