Considering their willingness to whore out the popularity of Pikachu and its line, you'd think they'd wanna take advantage of it, especially with saying they considered balance AND popularity while thinking of megas.

Obviously the requisite generational clone exists in Dedenne, but still. I really thought we'd've gotten some sorta Megachu.

Also, I'm not complaining necessarily. I didn't want it, I was just expecting.

We don't even know what all of the Mega Evolutions are yet.

We don't actually know if they did or not, yet.

Again. Remember how good Game Freak are at hiding items in their regions. So there might be a mega Raichu and no one has found the stone yet.

They don't sell out Pikachu and it's line, they sell out Pikachu. They couldn't give a f*** about Raichu save as something for Pikachu to pummel to show off how powerful it is.

But yeah, I too am surprised we didn't get a Megachu. And also kind of disappointed: It would have been perfect for Ash, since it's temporary and thus they don't have to give up the marketing.

Eh, maybe they're saving it for Pokemon Z to coincide with the X and Y anime getting around there.

Raichu isn't all that popular. Pikachu is. The game mechanics don't allow Pikachu to get a mega evolution, since it isn't fully evolved.

Pikachu already has the Light Ball as its held item powerup. If anything, I would expect them to boost the effect that Light Ball has on Pikachu (such as increasing its speed).

Ah, so that rumored list of megas was proven fake?

Knowing Gamefreak, Raichunite would just turn your Raichu back into a Pikachu.
