It seems to be a different Red because of Mega Evolution. Yes, they are starting with the parallel universes stuff, and it could get confusing. As for the anime, we had two versions for M14 and now we have M20.Oh, I know the timeline but when it starts opening up alternative universes, age progression no longer matters. No one could really know if Red from SM is the same Red from FRLG. And so on and so forth. With games going forward and backwards in time, it creates problems for the anime to follow if the games involve returning characters at different age.
Going on-topic, I always felt that Alain would fight Ash and would fight him in the Pokémon League. Ash is pretty powerful in XY, and the Mega Evolution Specials are clearly in continuity with the anime. Thus it stands to reason that Alain and Ash will battle and if Alain is that powerful in the Mega Evolution Specials, then the best way to showcase the clash of the titans is the Kalos League itself.
