Something that can keep up with the power creep of the later generations. I mean it's the mascot, it deserves that much.

Light Ball Pikachu already has a pretty good niche.

Its an interesting idea I'd be open too. But it would take away from Raichu who has the privilege of being the evo of Pokemon's mascot.

I've never been a huge fan of Raichu so I would love another evolution that resembled Pikachu more. My guess is that the stone causes a mutation which is why Raichu looks so different from his pre evolutions. So this should be a natural evolution through leveling up. They could even make a story to explain why they couldn't evolve before. Something like "Pikachu from all corners of the world have come here to train and evolve without the need of a stone." Perhaps make a special location where it can evolve like Leafeon and Glaceon.

I know this will never happen but a guy can dream.

Well, maybe I was going a bit far in saying I hate him. He just doesn't look that good.

It should be an evolution that you have to have high friendship for and then he just turns into a more rugged, battle-hardened looking Pikachu with higher stats.

Pikachu needs a higher base stat total, a different design, a different name, and a different moveset and he'd be good.
I'm thinking either something called Jolteon, Ampharos, or Electivire...
