    I keep checking back to see what the news is, but it seems like (with the exception of the hacker finding mega Latias/latios) that they are done with mega evolutions. Which is really disappointing.
    Well, that depends on the opinions of what the people answering the question define as DLC:

    Most people, including myself, think of DLC as 'Pay-For' content. As in, having to PAY FOR more pokemon, stones, and etcetera.
    EVENTS and UPDATES, however, can add content that wasn't shipped with the cart, just like DLC. They've already proven that they can update the game, after all.
    Nintendo and Game Freak probably knew that the carts would get hacked and reveal alot of stuff early. So there's a very good chance that additional content not held on the cartridge can and will be added - it's just not done yet.

    Edit: Further ruminations:
    Why have some stuff on the cart and not others?
    Store Distributions.
    Mega Latios/Latias, the faeries, and quite a bit of the other content may be unlocked through Gamestop/EB Games Distributions, or the pre-existing Internet Distributions, like Mega Blaziken.
    However, it is possible for them to add larger events into the game via the EShop - new environments, for example, would be something they couldn't add through normal internet 'here's the pass for the Victini boat' distribution alone.
    What could they add?
    Though unlikely, free EShop distributions could hold anything from new pokemon to entirely new models for areas. It's irresponsible for them to have Pokemon hog so much memory card space with stuff like that, but then again, it is still an option.
    Heck, with the Memory card to expand onto, they could theoretically expand the game as far as players Memory cards will allow - the most likely being 2GB, since that's what came with the 3DS.

    It's not console or PC gaming drastic in terms of updates, but considering they don't HAVE to keep everything on the cart anymore, my guess would be that they aren't.

    Seeing as there is no DLC Shop anywhere in the game itself, paid DLC is impossible.

    Not necessarily true - Having every player go through a mandatory update to download the content for the DLC through the E-Shop, while only giving the 'Key' for the DLC to those who pay for it via something like, say, a page on the Global Link Website. Like we do with Pokemiles already...
    I wouldn't rule it out.
    Or they could add a DLC Shop NPC to pokemon centers in an update. Don't underestimate the power of what updates can do.

    Masuda's said several times that he doesn't like the idea of paid dlc or microtransactions

    The fandom's obsession with DLC is so weird. Just because they can doesn't mean they will or should.
    The fact they put anything event-based on the cart at all (SPECIFICALLY the fact that the 3 event legends are on there) should show they probably don't ever want to mess with it.

    It's fun to speculate, but I'm pretty sure there won't be DLC. The "DLC" would be events done through Wi-Fi.

    Also, Mega Medicham is very very strong.

    In other news, maybe it's just me, but people online bring four or more Pokémon that can Mega Evolve...and all of them have the Mega Stones on.

    Most suicidal thing ever.

    I know, right?
    The most Megas you'd want on a team is one, MAYBE two depending on how well you know your opponent.
    One Mega to bust out in an all-out assault, (purely as an example, Mega Blaziken) while the other Mega could probably be more tanky in case you predict that the other Mega won't survive long. (Mega Gardevoir. Again, purely as an example.)
    Of course, you can only use one, so saving those two on the back burner until you know which one is more appropriate to bust out is essential. The ability to cover for the other's Type Weaknesses is also a good idea.

    Having a few Pokemon that can Mega-Evolve on a team does have the potential to play with your opponent's mind though. If he assumes you're a decent player then he'll be busy guessing which one you'll actually Mega-Evolve, and which ones you might run other sets or not even put into play (for Battle Spot that is).

    Although, them having a mega stone on all of them makes no sense, I carry Pokes that make them think when looking at my team.
    I like to keep them guessing which Poke I plan to have go mega.

    The thing I find most interesting about Mega Evolution, is its a battle only mode (Digimon anyone?), which has no impact on the Pokedex.

    I'd almost have wished that they were permenant evolutions, and the stones were used once, then that was the evolution done.

    The most interesting thing, if anyone has actually looked it up, does Mega Evolution give us the strongest pokemon? Or does it elevate them to be, give or take, on par with the strongest pokemon (highest overall stats).

    Because there's three battle scenarios when it comes to Mega Evolution that could be the case.

    1. Mega Evolution is so dominant, no other types of Pokemon can comete with their stats, which means all strong team builds would need Mega Evolution exclusive pokemon (plenty to choose as well, all the starters, ect).

    2. Mega Evolution enhances to the point of equalling many Pokemon to the stronger legendaries, meaning a build with some that have Mega Evolution could be substituted for legendaries (probably the most preferable scneario, imo).

    3. Mega Evolution enhances, but not to the point where the strongest pokemon are seriously threatened by them, making them obselete in later game battling.

    Order this list by total and you'll see that both MewtwoX/Y (780) are stronger than Arceus (720).
    Seeing as Mega Evolution typically adds 100 Base Stats to a Pokemon, anything with 621+ BST would be stronger than Arceus as a Mega.

    I've seen people who seem to be doing that, but in actuality, only one of them has a Mega Stone.

    Probably for mindgame purposes.

    The addition of Mega Evolution is very cool, the animation and powered up "cry" is pretty epic too, I'm wondering which Mega Charizard is overall more effective between the X Mega and the Y Mega.

    I only have Charizardite X, though, would anyone be willing to perhaps part with a Charizardite Y? I have some shinies from consecutive fishing; a couple Horsea and a Poliwhirl.

    I have seen people online with almost a full team of megas. You know, they've gone through the battle and mega evolved each one, too. It's like, mate, your Mega Gengar might be cool, but what are you really going to do when it's up against my hard-as-nails Meowstic? Lol.

    Also, this whole 5 Deoxys stones thing... has anyone else heard much more about this? It would be weird not to have any more Mega Stones in X and Y when there are 5 Deoxys stones :S

    As for DLC... I am one of these ones that desperately wants it to happen... even though I know Masuda doesn't like the idea of it T_T Because honestly, how many people would willingly part with money for DLC? I know I would :X And besides, he doesn't like DLC, but some of the dungeons on the recent Mystery Dungeon game are DLC or so I've been told?!

    On that whole subject, I really wonder how Mega Evolution is going to effect the spin-off titles.

    Though when you see something like Manectric or Mawile on a team, you know those are the mega evos.
    But I'm surprised out of all megas the most I've see are Mawile, Charizard Y, and Garchomp. And the occasional Scizor, but none of those players have been very good with them.

    I just faught a dude with scrappy kangaskahn I thought it was his mega but it was actually gengar (maybe his kangas held his stone but since i burnt him right when he switched in he prefered using gengar as a mega).
    I say that because kangas is in the same tier as mawile so beware sometimes people can fake you out.
    Also I see no love for mega banette when this thing can save you games with priority Dbond.
    Scizor garchomp and stuff are just hyped because they are megas of already strong pokemon and so they are missused.

    I personally think a team should not have more than 1 or 2 pokemon that can Mega evolve, even if is for the sake of playing mind games with your enemies.
    It is hard to decide whether one should mega evolve or not in a battle,since you can use it once so you have to think wisely and consider the situation.
    I wont use Mega Charizard Y in my team because it is way too dependant on its Mega evolution (drought + fire attack/solarbeam =ownage with uber sp atk) unless this is the only pokemon in my team that can/should mega evolve.
    However even pokes like Garchomp or Scizor can shine well even without Megas,save the mega evolution for some1 else

    Manectric is still decent enough to function without its mega due to its above average speed, as the Choice Specs/Scarf using ones I've seen can attest to.

    Mawile and Absol are honestly the only ones I believe you can know for certain that they'll be using their stone, as their low speed and defenses make them virtually impossible to use effectively otherwise.

    I've been playing a lot of triples lately and have only seen mega Blastoise and mega Mewtwo so far. I still laugh when my slow little Vespiquen kills their Mewtwo right when he switches in.

    Yeah, but regular Manectric also sucks Former Governor Harry Baals compared to guys like Jolteon, Raikou, and especially Thundurus. Granted, that's more of a thing in Pokebank OU than on the cartridge, but you're still using a fairly mediocre 'mon if you've got Manectric without Manectite.
