How to Get Raichu in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevee?

To get Raichu in Pokemon Let’s Go, you’ll have to evolve a Pikachu. If you’re playing Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu, you’ll still have to capture one of them, because you can’t evolve your partner Pokemon. In our experience, the best place to catch one is in Viridian Forest (where you can also catch a Bulbasaur, incidentally). Make sure to use a lure, and wander through the areas with the tall grass to maximize your chances of a fast spawn.

Once you have a Pikachu, make sure to put it on your party. This is necessary, and you’ll see why in a second. The final ingredient you need is a Thunder Stone. You can buy one at the fourth floor of the Celadon City Department Store (for more detailed info, check out our Pokemon Let’s Go Evolution Stones – Where to Find guide). Now, go into your inventory and select the Thunder Stone. Choose “Use this Item.” The game will then show you the Pokemon in your party. Scroll to the Pikachu that you want to evolve, and select it. Congratulations, you now have a Raichu!
