Well, considering PkMn Hunter J is apparing, he/she (I forget J's gender ) is obviously after SOMETHING. I say it's Hajime's Riolu. (that one DOES know Pulse Bomb {Aura Sphere}, right?)

Ok, so I was just visiting serebii.net to check up on games and such, when suddenly I see the title for the next japanese episode: «Pikachu!Raichu!Road to evolution!».
So what do you think?Is pikachu really going to evolve after all this time??

Wow this looks almost the same as an old kanto episode.
Pikachu in a bed and ash with a thunder stone.... man do they lack creativity!

To answer your question, no it won't evolve. Pikachu is the mascot for Pocket Monsters. It won't be evolving anytime soon.

Well at least the writers are readdressing the Pikachu evolving idea..

I for one don't want Pikachu to evolve. ;=;

I don't want pikachu to evolve!
Isn't this the episode where Team Rocket tries to evolve Pikachu?
And Ash is always talking about how a Pokemon can be strong without evolving. And Saying "Isn't that right Pikachu?"

NO Pikachuu will NOT evolve.
However Satoshi's Gliscar WILL evolve in Gligar.

It won't evolve at all.

I'll go for maybe. The writers c a n evolve Pikachu if they want, but it most likely they w o n t let him evolve. Pikachu is the "mascot" of Pokemon, and oh no! It would be horrible if the main character of the anime doesn't carry one around... >.<

And for myself, I would like Pikachu to evolve. Not because I like Raichu better than Pikachu, but because the Ep is s o unoriginal if they're just going to reminds us of why Pikachu doesn't want to evolve..

But it's most likely it's going to be an Ep about, Pikachu losing a battle to a Raichu, Satoshi finding/getting a Thunderstone, Pikachu thinks about evolve, Pikachu (doesn't) evolve and beat the Raichu. The e n d .

Y'know what? It's not beyond them at all to screw with all you guys and evolve PIkachu. They should totally do it.

Meh, they've said loads of times that neither or Ash or Pikachu want him to evolve. It would be hilarious if Pikachu accidently got hold of a Thunderstone one time though, but it'll never happen.

And the Shaymin movie has Pikachu... Even though that could be canonically before this episode...

Meh, I wondered that as well. Until I remembered the Lt. Surge episode. Neither Ash or Pikachu wants Pikachu to evolve, even if it's to get stronger. Chances are that Pikachu considers it but something happens and the evolution either is cancelled in the middle or just doesn't occur at all.

no, the movie takes place long AFTER this episode. The bat thing that Ash has evolved, and somebody caught a swinub...

neither of those events happened yet, there is no Raichuu known to be in the movie, and we STILL see Pikachuu & Ash in the same scenes in the movie.

Pikachuu will not be evolving this time. But who knows what will happen in a more future episode?

Like someone before said, I mean unless Gligar evolved in the next episode with a capture at the same time int eh Dustox episode it's not going to happen.

Raichu is too fat to sit atop Ash's head/shoulder, so I highly doubt the writers will have Pikachu evolve.

First of all I know he will not evolve. It's like replacing Ash or a member of Team Rocket. (Although they had no trouble replacing Misty and May). A much as I'd love this to happen, no, it just won't. Plus according to Bulbapedia,
Spoiler:
the gang meet a trainer with a Pichu and Raichu and he thinks Ash's Pikachu is a wild one. So there will be a battle of electric mice.
omg I just realized how amazing it would be to have a Pikachu flashback where he remembers life as a Pichu and how he was caught by Oak, heh.

I haven't watched the anime for a long time, but if Pikachu did evolve i would probably re-start from there, I agree with Kansas, things need to be shaken up. However after seeing this movie trailer screenshot; there is a new Pokémon and a new evolution that have not been seen in the main series yet, not to mention there's still a Pikachu perched on Ash's shoulder. Not a Raichu.

[But yes, I'd love it to evolve, and evolve in a huge mega super amazing episode with the old, or at least better, VAs o.-]

I won't watch PKMN anymore if PIKACHU evolves...
I can't bear it... PIKACHU shouldn't evolve!!!

If it does, then we can't see a yellow cute mouse on Ash's head or shoulder... T_T

Well, I like Pikachu more than Raichu, but for the sake of change it might be nice to have him evolve. I doubt it'll ever happen, though.

Meh, I dunno.. XD; Raichu is just so ugly.. .-.

If Pikachu evolves into Raichu, Ash must then evolve into Smash... a much bigger, more intimidating perpetually-ten-year-old boy. In that way, Raichu could still perch on a shoulder and look cuddly.

will pikachu evolve?

probably not.

should it evolve?

That, my friend, is like asking me if I think Latias should get a reappearance with extra altoshipping.

in other words, that's a big fat freakin' yes.

unfortunately, the writing staff disagree with the fans (heaven forbid they actually have a plot twist they haven't used at least three times already...) and so we know they won't do squat when it comes to evolving pikachu.
