With this coming new generation, how can the designers of this game make the Pokemon mascot Pikachu competitively viable in the metagame? What moves or abilities could Pikachu get that could make it a top tier threat?

Don't. Pikachu's overrated enough as it is.
Pretend this signature is a basilisk. You are now dead.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become a villain. unfortunately i chose the former.

I wouldn't buff Pikachu, instead I think it would be better to make the Light Ball work on Raichu as well. Could also make it work on Pichu to make it more usable in Little Cup.

Light Ball is by far Pikachu's best item. They need to distribute it sooner than they did 5th gen.
Maybe also a version that gets its hidden ability Lightning Rod AND the extremespeed event move.

You can evolve it then teacher any move that isn't electric.

That usually gets them.
