I've been thinking that the Pokémon Lab scientists may make a return, or rather be properly introduced, as part of the new villainous organization. We know that the research team went looking for the legendary birds in Cerulean Cave. What happened when they found Mewtwo instead? Did it kill them, or did they manage to escape? Was that the incident that led to the cave collapse between the first two generations, which was even referenced in HGSS? We don't know if Red encountered Mewtwo first, as the science team just left a E-mail message about the expedition plan:
Did Mewtwo want the research team gone by whatever means necessary? Was it responsible for the Cinnabar volcano eruption as an extreme measure of getting the lab destroyed? Mind you, no people were killed as a result of the eruption, but they did have to leave Cinnabar.
And what was the Berserk Gene all about? It could return in these games just as the Ragecandybar returned as a key item in HGSS and later as the original item in Black and White.

Hmm...I'm not sure whether or not Mewtwo's inclusion is as something like a "Goodbye to the old days", in regards to how XY are moving away from sprites (which we know Masuda is particularly fond of). Mewtwo, being the main legendary from the first games, obviously fitting the nostalgia role there.
It is also worth noting that no past legendaries have ever appeared in the primary pair of a new generation (however, considering how much Gen V mixed things up, who knows how much Gen VI will do that? Especially with the sheer number of legendaries we have now). Personally, I don't think GameFreak and TPC will want to distract players from the mythology relating to the new legendaries, so it could be possible that a special Mewtwo will be distributed in relation to the movie and will have a flag that will activate a possible Mew or back-story event in XY? That could be tied in to the plot of the XY games (if the story is indeed genetic related), by having a mention of how Mewtwo (and possibly Genesect) were inspirations for the new project.
I'm not sure why they would distribute a special Eevee though? I guess it could be cool as the ticket pre-order bonus - something that isn't essential for Pokédex completion, but is a nice addition (most likely with special moves - maybe even shiny, but a shiny one hasn't appeared in any promotional materials yet). I wouldn't be surprised if it did turn out to be Mewtwo though. Pretty confident that the shiny ExtremeSpeed Genesect will be the main promotion though.
I'm up for the idea of expanding Mewtwo's origins and role in the games, though I am not sure if that will occur. While Mewtwo has plenty of depth for a Pokemon, I think Game Freak would rather tell us about Xerneas and Yveltal in Pokemon X and Y, as those two are brand-new and we know pretty much nothing about them right now, whereas we already know a bit about Mewtwo and we've known about its existance for years now. On the other hand, Mewtwo was given a signature move this generation, so it doesn't seem out of the realm if they did something to keep Mewtwo in the spotlight a little longer...just not so much that it steals the show from Xerneas and Yveltal.
I think I'd cry if Mewtwo had a big role in X and Y. We haven't seen it for so long and it's so nostalgic, and it certainly fits with the genetics theme.
