Actually, the official Pokémon timeline states that FRLG happen at the same time as RSE. DPPt and HGSS happen three years later, followed by BW an unknown number of years later and then B2W2 and XY happen at the same time two years after BW. So logically, Wally should be at most one year younger than Red and Blue, since Red was 11 in RBY/FRLG and Wally was confirmed to be 10 in ORAS.
Of course, we have to take into account the fact that every game after XY is set in an alternate universe where Mega Evolution exists. The first five Generations all exist in a universe where the great Kalos war never happened and the ultimate weapon, whose radiation created the Mega Stones, was never built. I suppose it's possible that in the Mega universe, the events of RBY/FRLG (or whatever the next Kanto remakes will be called) happened many years before ORAS. That would explain why Wally still looks like a kid even though Red and Blue look 20-ish, but IMO, it's a pretty weak explanation.
Also, none of that explains why Professor Sycamore made such a big deal about Mega Evolution in XY and claimed that it was known to exist only in Kalos. Either he outright lied or Game Freak screwed up big time when they told us in ORAS that the world's first Mega Evolution happened in Hoenn with Rayquaza. And even if that hadn't been the case, Mega Evolution didn't seem like a big deal at all in ORAS despite ORAS taking place years before XY in the damn timeline. I definitely wasn't kidding when I said that these timelines are confusing.
One thing's for sure - someone messed up and we just have to live with it.
