The anime will let ash's pikachu mega evolve into mega raichu in battle even though you can't do it that way in the game.
to bad he's been holding an everstone ever since kanto
Really? Why would a pokemon that only evolves by thunderstone even need an everstone?
and regardless, my guess is that the anime will write its self out of any restrictions that may be in the game so that they can do whatever they want. Of course, pikachu would revert back after the battle
I do believe there have been a few time pikachu had picked up a thunderstone and not evolved...
so yeah everstone...
There have not.
Really I thought the last "Ash debates about evolving Pikachu episode it picked up a thunderstone?
I don't follow the anime too closely so I 'll admit I was wrong but I thought I saw it on the episode pictures on serebii
They'll probably recycle the whole "David vs Goliath" plot where a smaller evolution fights a bigger evolution, didn't that already happen to Pikachu (about twice), Oshawott...unsure if there was anyone else...if Raichu does mega evolve, chances are it's just to make it faster; something that the previous 2 Raichu lacked..Pikachu is probably going to get a new Signature move other than Volt Tackle, "move that replaced Volt Tackle" and "Move that replaces the move that replaced Volt Tackle".

Nah, Pikachu will end up defeating it in an unquestionably fluky manner. Without need for Mega form.
This assuming Pikachu doesnt have a m.evo. first it will loose with the trainer berating ash for not evolving his pikachu. Then ash will train debating if he should evolve pikachu finally deciding not to and winning in a rematch.
