I don't know much about this one but I'll do my best. When Ash first got the Pikachu, it was not level 14, 15, 16 , 17, 18, or 19. It was a higher level. I don't know how Ash got RED'S Pikachu, but this is what i think.

The games and anime don't share a continuity. I mean Team Rocket disbanded in RBY and again in GSC, but look at the anime. I like the idea, though.

Powerstars pretty much said my thoughts on the matter. Ash is the anime's version of Red, so Red couldn't have had a Pikachu to give to Ash there.

Besides, I don't think Pikachu was that strong in the beginning. It was just feisty and had type advantage over the Spearows and received special training with Ash in order to beat Brock. Somehow.

Moving this to Pokémon Anime section, since it's mainly about Ash, whether Red exists there or not.

1) Anime and games do not share a continuity. This has been further proved by Origins.

2) Red's Pikachu would have been hella levelled by the time they parted ways if they did so. Which they wouldn't.

3) Pikachu wasn't that strong at the beginning. As stated, it had a type advantage against them Spearow and drew electricity from the storm and later from other sources and was disagreeable and likely got stronger by fighting with everyone and everything.

Maybe something happened to Red and his Pikachu was left alone with it's pokeball. And maybe Pikachu got mad at Red because he never came back. then Professor Oak found Pikachu, Catched it with it's own pokeball and gave pikachu to ash. Pikachu would not listen to ash and was being mean because Ash reminded pikachu of Red. but when the spearows was about to attack, Pikachu realized that ash was not a Red, but a completely different person that would not leave pikachu behind. So pikachu ran to Ash's Rescue.
Note: you never see red use pikachu in combat. you only see him catch so pikachu was probably at a low level when ash got it.
well. that's my theory of How Ash got Red's Pikachu.
What do you think of this?

This is an interesting concept of thought... and it may be true.

Anyways, Pokemon is not Yu-Gi-Oh (I'm looking at you, Winged Kuriboh =D) and Satoshi is Red's counterpart so those worlds do not intertwine =)

Well what i've heard from a friend of mine, that the games like red, blue, green(japan only), yellow, fire red and leaf green. Since them two are with the first gen and a bit similar to ash, that the games are based on the pokemon manga and not the anime.

RBGY was not based off the manga - The manga WAS based off them instead.

And Ash was based off Red, not the other way round, mind you.
