Thoughts on Kalos and future generations

Outright, the game emphasizes that Mega Evolutions seem to only occur in Kalos. Prior to this being the stated case, I was convinced that Mega Evolutions could likely not carry on to other generations, only because I guessed (rightly so) that no Gen 6 pokémon (bar possibly the starters at the time) would get a Mega Evo. The point of Megavolving older pokémon was to make them as cool as the newer pokémon, meaning the newer pokémon do not need to take advantage of the New Thing: they're new already and need to prove nothing.

    I agree with you, unless something happens in the third game that causes Mega Evolution to occur worldwide as opposed to simply Kalos alone, so Megas can exist in generations to come.

    For good or for bad, I think Mega Evolutions are here to stay, regardless of what was said in the game about they happening only in Kalos. I personally like the concept and older Pokémon getting some love is certainly a good thing, so I hope they keep giving us more megas in future generations.

    I think you're looking at this the wrong way. I don't think any gameplay mechanic that has a significant effect on the gameplay will suddenly be dropped in future games. So Mega Evolutions will probably not simply disappear from the game and we'll be able to get them in future games. As for the item situation, that's nothing new, before Mega evolutions we had tons of item based evolutions (evolution stones, King's Rock, Metal Coat, Dragon Scale, Deepseatooth, Deepseascale, Electrizer, Magmarizer, Protector, Reaper Cloth, Prism Scale), so this is nothing new, it just makes an already bad situation worse. Pokemon Amie probably isn't going anywhere either, considering that not only does Sylveon need it to evolve, but it also gives boosts to Pokemon in battle such as increased critical hit ratio. All of these things directly affect the battling unlike things like contests which have no effect on the main gameplay. Also, I do think we'll get more Mega Evolutions down the road, for the same reasons why we used to get new evolutions periodically. There's always Pokemon that need improvement, it's just a matter of time.

    As for Bank, I agree with you there, the way it's presenting itself makes it feel like a cash grab, and I don't want this thing shoved down my throat in future games and generations.
