A mysterious item known as a "Mega Stone" was mentioned, but what role it or the Blaziken Knight item hold in obtaining a MegaPokémon is currently unknown.

Mawile has been confirmed to be retconned to a Steel/Fairy-type, with MegaMawile also having the type combination. MegaMawile has the ability Huge Power, MegaBlaziken has Speed Boost, MegaLucario's ability is Adaptability and MegaAbsol's ability is Magic Bounce.
