The official Pokemon Go Twitter account noted that Mega Evolutions will be found in the wild, suggesting we might not be able to Mega Evolve the monsters we've already caught.

When Mega Evolving Pokemon we own, the likelihood is this will only be applicable to certain Pokemon in trainer battles, gym battles and raids.

In the main games, Pokemon could only mega evolve with the correct keystone that corresponds to that Pokemon.

Perhaps they will implement items that can be found at Poke stops or rewarded via research challenges.
