Anyone else think Raichu/Pikachu will get a mega evo?

I dunno why, but I feel like one of these will be getting a mega. Discuss.

They should release a Light Ball Equivalent for Raichu first Q.Q

Pikachu, no.

Raichu, maybe.


Mega Evolutions on Non-Fully Evolved Pokemon completely defeat the purpose of a Mega Evolution. The whole point of Mega Evolution is basically going beyond the maximum and releasing a new form. Pikachu is not the "maximum" of that species, unless it is carrying a specific item, and using said item means Pikachu can't Mega Evolve. Kind of contradictory situation wouldn't you say?

Raichu is possible, but I'm not confident of making a claim either way.

Raichu?

Nah

Raichu has never stepped up and done anything of note. I'd be glad to be wrong, but it's always been (and always will be) a loser.

It's superior in every way to Pikachu.

Nah Pikachu and its evolutionary line is overrated.

Well if Raichu gets a Mega then the anime will probably make Pikachu fight it.

I can easily see TrollFreak making a Mega Pikachu and not Mega Raichu. It's better for marketing.

Gamefreak does not like Raichu. So i would bet on MegaPikachu if anything at all.

1. Pikachu gets a Mega, Raichu does not.

2. Raichu gets a Mega, but it will be awful, making Raichu less appealing to use.

3. Both get a Mega (Raichu for being Full Evo in 3 stages, Pikachu because Pikachu ALWAYS gets something neat), and Pickachu's Mega will completely outclass Raichu's Mega.

4. Neither get one.

If anything in the line gets it, I cannot see it ending well for Raichu. I just can't. I would love to be wrong, though.
