He might evolve some time in the future. Probably when he's forced to during a battle.

What do you think?

I think that would ruin the magic of Ash and Pikachu, probably the most vital part (for me, anyway) of Pokemon.

No, Team Rocket stole Satoshi's Thunder Stone earlier in Diamond and Pearl. Pikachu already had the option to evolve twice and rejected to evolve so it's safe to assume that Pikachu won't evolve. Ever.

I doubt it.
Pikachu pretty much represents pokemon,and everyone knows pikachu.
It would be kinda bad/akward if he were to evolve.

Nope Pikachu will never evolve. as someone said above he already rejected the opportunity to evolve twice...

Pikachu is the best but he shouldve been super strong as he has been through alot with ash :\

Personally no i don't think it will evolve. It is like the most important thing in the anime in my opinion. There is no way they will let it evolve. And if its a Raichu it would be hard to walk around with out in the open in my opinion :/ It won't be able to climb on his shoulders or do any of the old things. So no, it will not evolve, of course there are more reasons but this is all i'm stating.

Well, to put it bluntly,

Pikachu is basically the trademark for Pokemon.

So if it were to evolve into Raichu, It would kind of ruin the concept.

While Riachu in my opinion is better than Pikachu, you can guarantee that Pikachu will never evolve. I mean, the anime went through four generations! You'd think that if he was supposed to evolve he would have done so by now. But if Pikachu ever did evolve, it would probably be the end of the series.

Yeah. It's been more than 10 year since the show started and Pikachu still hasn't evolved. You guys are right. He won't evolve. :D

Ash has gone through like, what, 32 gym leaders now? If he hasn't evolved him then, I don't think he ever will any time soon xD

No, it's not even a possibility. Pikachu would not evolved. This is proven in one episode when Pikachu refused the Thunder Stone that Ash was holding.

Also, Pikachu is the mascot of Pokémon, not it's later evolution, Raichu. It's too late to change it now. Besides, Pikachu would probably lose the insane speed in exchange for the power that Pikachu already has.

it's way too late in the pokemon franchise for that, especially since pikachu has already made his name all around the world.

Then Raichu becomes the mascot! lol

Even though I don't watch the anime, Pikachu has been through almost 600 episodes (according to Serebii) and still hasn't evolved, so I doubt it will.

You know what they say, third time's a charm~!

I only think Pikachu will evolve when the Pokemon series is coming to an end or he gets replaced by a different main character... which may be never XD Therefore my answer, no.

Sadly, no.

It isn't a matter of power, it's a matter of personal choice. For whatever reason, PIkachu simply refuses to evolve. However, if it were forced into a situation where it had to...like, say , Satoshi's life was in danger and PIkachu isn't strong enough to save him as-is...

Not like it matters. Even if it evolved, it'd still be irritatingly cheery and upbeat. It's Chu's like that that give the rest of us a bad name...

No, Pikachu will probably never be evolved, that's pretty much the whole point. ;

I highly doubt Ash will let Pikachu evolve. If it's already the 4th region and it is still Pikachu and Ash has a close friendship with Pikachu, I dont think Ash will evolve it into Raichu

Pikachu will not evolve. Because it's contented with it's power and speed. Speed is much better than power. Because Raichu is always defeated by Pikachu o_o PAWN!
