I have beaten the Elite Four and somebody is selling me a Mega Stone for Venusaur in a shop in Lumiose City. I have chosen Charizard, and I'm wondering if the only way to get Venusaur is through the trading methods of Pokemon games.

The kanto starters are available through the friend safari, assuming you have friends of the fire, water, or grass types. You'll find them in their middle evolution. i.e, ivysaur.

Besides the fried safari you can just use the GTS for them or trade with a friend. After all if you battled sycamore(you usually do as part of the story) he's shown you all three. Just find something cool to use as trade bait and go for it!

Note that as of Gen VI, if you know the name of a Pokémon, you can search for it on the GTS even if you haven't seen it (don't have any kind of Pokédex entry for it). – scenia Mar 3 '14 at 8:18

You need a friend with 'Venesaur' and 'Blastoise' then go to the Friend Safari and get there middle evolution. Level them up to get the full evolution and then Mega Evolve them. Mega 'Charizard' is diffident in X and Y.

Do your friends with venusuar and blastoise have to be water or grass or do they just have to have venusuar and blastoise? – user57619 Oct 19 '13 at 19:11

You could just get the other game and trade and restart.
