Would you?Why?

As for me no.I think it would be a cool change to the series even though i dont really watch the anime.

I would care if it that happened. It's been like 14 seasons and Pikachu has stayed the same. If it ever happened I'm sure many other people would care too. Pikachu seems like it doesn't really want to evolve at all.

Not really, maybe that will make Pikachu stop getting whooped by Pokemon that are way weaker than him (like that shameful loss on Ash's first battle with Trip)

Personally, I don't mind what happens with regards to Pikachu and if he evolved, then that would be interesting although its never gonna happen as Pikachu doesn't want to evolve, period.

I'd care if Ash's Pikachu evolved, as it could potentially change the way Ash's journey turns out (and it might make Ash actually age throughout the story, instead of being 10 years old and lacking in skill all the time.)
However, to be realistic, this is never going to happen. It would confuse and discourage long time fans and new viewers, and, as I alluded to, might make it harder for Ash's skills to be reset come time to go to a new region.

I would care...

After all of that resisting, and overcoming the problems of being a technically weaker Pokemon for 14 seasons, throwing that away would make the show lose a lot.

The fact that it was always an option because Ash always carries a Thunderstone with him, but never happened because Pikachu wanted to remain a Pikachu added something to the show... A case of having a Pokemon that isn't as strong as it can be because of a choice of it's own.

i don't think pikachu or ash want pikachu to be a raichu, it would almost be the same if they changed pikachu to a patrat or something useless. anyway it's 15 seasons now if you count rival destinies.

I don't think Ash carries a Thunderstone around, otherwise he wouldn't need one from the Trainer in "Barrier Breakthrough! Climb The Tower Of The Sky!!" had to give Ash a Thunderstone which almost evolved Pikachu.

Too answer the thread question I don't care if it happens or not. The question I would have is why now? I am almost a %100 sure this will never happen period. So I don't really care either way cause I know the likelihood is very very very (can't stress the very enough) slim.

I want it to happen. Forget needing no extra power or whatever. It's a good moral for kids, but still... I just want to see a Raichu running around. Then again, if Pikachu evolved, the writers wouldn't able to justify its lack of power every season so well. There are just more doors opened if a Raichu appeared, like a wider movepool, to name one thing.

To put my answer simple, no. It's been a decade and Pikachu has had chances but now he's a glorified mascot for the franchise. I highly doubt they'd think about evolving him now. I could see it when Ash's story potentially wraps up, idk. That's a possibility and could be a great way to end his journey but tbh, I don't see it.

I actually would care, even though I really like Raichu. :/ Pokémon would be dead to me if that happened. The anime have made a lot of horrible decisions but that would completely ruin my childhood. ;_;

I wouldn't care if it did happen because I'm tired of Ash's Pikachu still being a Pikachu. I mean he's had two chances so far to evolve and he's rejected both times. It's time for his Pikachu to settle down and evolve but I doubt it'll happen.

Yes I would. Pikachu has to stay Pikachu, or if it evolves it's at the end of the anime, but not while. I can't imagine Ash with a Raichu... I would prefer that they change the protagonist with a whole new "mascot Pokémon", I wouldn't miss the electric mouse that much but I don't want it to evolve, really.

I wouldn't really care if Pikachu were to evolve into Raichu. I can see it happening sometime in the future, but for now he is the logo for the Pokemon company so it's not likely at the moment.

Yes, I would care very much. I wouldn't watch the amine at ALL. The show would automatically be awkward.

If it turns into a Raichu I might actually start watching the anime...

I think it would make it really weird to see Raichu, especially if It stayed outside it's pokeball. I could see it now. "Great job Raichu!" Raichu takes down Ash lol. I would much rather see it stay as Pikachu :D

I would be sad if Pikachu evolved, he is Ash's true mascot.

Yeah, I'd care. Quite a bit, actually, especially after the events of the first season. If they were to do it, they'd have to pull it off really well.

I wish that Ash would finally evolve into a man.

Hell yes I would! Pikachu has been around since the the Indigo league, so it just wouldn't be right to see him evolve. On top of that, Pikachu is the mascot of the series and as such is one of the biggest reasons why Pokémon sells the way it does. It better never happen!

Yes, in fact, I would. And I would jump from happiness.

Freaking finally.

I would care I mean Pikachu is Pikachu. The anime wouldn't be the same. My Pikachu shirt would mean nothing. I really couldn't see Raichu taking Pikachu place.

If Pikachu would evolved into Raichu, Ash will be completely different to me, as if he might have a different personality. To my knowledge, I don't think Pikachu will evolve. I bet it's at lvl 100 already on the Best Wishes series. Even if it did, at LEAST I will not hear "PIKACHU, USE THUNDERBOLT!!" That quote is so annoying.

Raichu's better, so I would view it as an improvement. To say Pikachu as it is right now would be stronger than if it were a Raichu, that's such a retarded statement. Evolving increases your stats, whether it's in a game or not. Do you mean when Pikachu fought Lt. Surge's lazy, slow Raichu? It was trained COMPLETELY different.

I would hate it, only because Raichu is fat and ugly.

I would welcome it tbh, I've always liked the idea of Ash being with a Raichu.

I'm not much of a Pikachu fan, but like other have mentioned the anime wouldn't be the same. I will continue to watch it even if it evolves or not.
