Ash's Pikachu/Raichu

I may be wrong, but didn't Ash's Pikachu evolve into Raichu in one of the early series anime episodes? He decided that his Raichu was slower and less versatile than his Pichaku, got very tearful, and managed to devolve it back into a Pikachu somehow? Did this happen or did I dream it up? I ask because I was never a huge fan or close follower of the anime. If it did, the anime section of the devolution page ought to be corrected. PurpleSector 20:25, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

You dreamed it. Pikachu never evolved. It was Lt. Surge's Raichu you're thinking of in terms of being slower than Pikachu. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 20:28, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Doesn't this card also cause devolution through the use of Mutation in certain situations...? --Azurillglow2mlw7 06:07, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

I also found this card to cause devolution through Devo Crush --Azurillglow2mlw7 06:18, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
