Psych up copies the opponent's stat changes. Unknown for what duration it applies. But would it copy the stat changes if the opponent mega-evolved?

Psych Up refers to boosts like Swords Dance, Agility, and Calm Mind. These are in a separate category from the stat gains -- and in a few cases, stat losses -- of Mega Evolution.

If an opposing Pokémon uses, say, Dragon Dance, then Mega Evolves the next turn, it will still have those boosts. Therefore Psych Up will still work.

Not base stat increases, but it will copy boosts from moves like Agility and Swords Dance.
