Possible Mega Evolution Theory [TL;DR]

Okay so I made a post about this on my personal Facebook about a possible pattern in Mega Evolution reveals, and it all started with a post on a site called The Monster Atlas. The post in question is THIS ONE. In the post they talk about how they noticed something and had to review the previous reveals to confirm something. Prior to the reveal of Mega Salamence, Mega Lopunny and Mega Altaria were three other reveals involving Mega Evolutions, but that isn’t the important part. The important part is what happens after they show the Pokemon Mega Evolving. As per every Mega Evolution reveal, they also show off a move in battle against another Pokemon. More specifically, they were shown battling against other Pokemon that could also Mega Evolve. I personally back tracked and checked this out myself.
