Ok they have an Episode coming out called: Pikachu! Raichu! The Road to Evolution! Now the screen shot shows Pikachu looking at a thunderstone. Does anyone know the story line to know if he does evolve? I'm guessing he doesn't (and hoping he doesn't) But just wondering. For 10 yrs it's been Ash and Pikachu, and it would really ruin the show, in my opinion that is, to evolve Pikachu.
