Mega Evolution does more than just change a Pokémon's appearance, it can also change their Type, Ability and Stats. A good example is Ampharos; which after Mega Evolution becomes a Dual Type Electric/Dragon Pokémon.
Mega Evolution is only possible during a Battle, however you can also attack in the same turn. After the Battle ends, the Pokémon devolves back into previous form but they still evolve. You are limited to having only one Mega Evolution in a battle. All your team can however hold Mega Stones. Each individual Mega Stone can be used an infinite number of times, but only once per battle.While some fans consider the Mega Evolutions to be little more than alternate forms, the Mega Pokémon are in fact their own species of Pokémon, as seen by the statement that accompanied Mega Mewtwo Y's original reveal which called it "a new Pokémon related to Mewtwo" and also Red stating in Pokémon Origins that Charizard has "evolved even further!"
