The only way you can make pikachu evolve is by trading it to another version of the game and using a thunder stone.

The Pikachu you get at the beginning of the game will not evolve on the game.

I suggest transferring it to another version and subjecting it to the Thunderstone.

Hot Tip: The Pikachu you get at the start of the game will obey no matter what.

This means that you can transfer it to another version and train it to level 100, and it will still obey!

To evolve Pikachu you have to trade it to a red/blue version. Then use a thunderstone on it and trade it back to the yellow version. If you try to use the stone in the yellow version it will say that it can't work.

In pokemon yellow the pikachu you get from Oak will not evolve because it dose not want to.

I know this because I have tried this before.

In pokemon yellow the story is more like the tv show in which Ash's pickachu dose not want to evolve. :]

Trade it and use a thunder stone. Once it's a Raichu it...
1. Won't always obey and
2. Won't follow you.

I used the Thunder on pikachu right before facing the final four and he evolved. He was lvl 52 I believe.
