How To Evolve Pikachu In Pokemon Sword & ShieldThe first thing you need to know is that you cannot evolve the Pikachu from the Let’s go data. That Pikachu is basically like the Pokemon from Let’s Go Pikachu and will not evolve, it just refuses. So you need to catch a random one, we have a guide on where to find them here. Once you catch a Pikachu, level it up to atleast 15 and then you can use a Thunderstone one it to evolve it into a Raichu. The Thunderstone is somewhat rare, but the duo digger brothers can sometimes dig them up in the Wild Zone, near the Nursery there.
