Unfortunately, ORAS will not be totally compatible with XY. Pokémon with Mega Stones or moves that are exclusive to ORAS can't be traded to XY. Also, it seems like ORAS players won't be able to battle XY players due to wireless or online battles having a different system. It is unknown if Pokémon Bank will work with ORAS.
The Global Link will be updated in November, which will allow ORAS players to share secret bases and photos (and possibly more).
The ORAS demo will come out in America on October 21st. For most countries, it's already been released. You can read more and participate here.
The registration "Trick-or-Treat Friendly" Battle Competition for XY ends on October 23rd, and the battles are from October 24-26. All Pokémon used must be Ghost-type, and can't be Rotom or Giratina. Also, a Super-Sized Gourgeist must be used.
