How is a Raichu more evolved than a Pikachu?

I mean it has no fingers, and it's pre-evolved form does? Am I the only one who is bugged by this?

Okay, I probably am, but still...

It trades speed for power. According to the anime, when Ash was facing Lt. Surge aka the largest man in the anime.

That's why Raichu has base 100 speed, and Pikachu has base 90?

The anime and games are different. It depends which canon you're talking about: if in the anime, then that's 100% correct. If it's in the games, then that is false according to base stats. And I can't comment on the manga.

The games often don't make sense with regards to Speed.

For example, they really want us to think that lil Turtwig is slower than hulking Torterra? But it has to be that way because if things got slower as they evolved into something bigger, it would throw balance out of whack.

Both Onix and Scyther get slower when they evolve into something bigger.

I think the difference with them and a plant is Steel makes things heavier which I'm sure will make it slower.
