Default Pikachu and Piplup

Why is it everyone complains about Dawn not evolving here Piplup when Pikachu hasn't evolved for like 14 seasons?

I think it’s because we’ve all acknowledged that Pikachu will always remain in its current stage, considering it’s the franchise’s most recognised Pokemon. Piplup, on that other hand, had nothing preventing it from evolving, but the writers decided to introduce the everstone into the scenario to ensure that the Prinplup would be completely unfeasible, without a sufficient reason really. There’s also the fact that it’s been forced on us as a secondary mascot, and is plastered on everything anime-related alongside Pikachu

Kind of, but Munchlax hasn't been plastered in our faces as much as Piplup, maybe this means Dawn is the anime girl to finally stay with Ash.

And to be honest, as much as I prefer Raichu's to Pikachu's, if Pikachu evolved I would walk to Tokyo and set fire to everyone.

Pikachu is the icon of Pokemon and has been so since the creation of the anime. Pikachu has been given at least one (actually three iirc) opportunities to evolve and denied every single one. Pikachu has been kicking Raichu ass since Vermillion. Pikachu will never evolve, this is a good thing.

The only thing I have a problem with is that they're trying to make Piplup into Dawn's version of Pikachu. I don't watch the anime anymore, but from what I hear she's keeping it out of its Pokeball, plus the "not evolving" thing, and the fact that Piplup and Dawn became friends exactly the same way that Ash and Pikachu did, right down to the Legendary Pokemon cameo at the end of the episode. But honestly, I prefer Piplup to its evolutions. They're more powerful, yes, but Piplup just plain looks better.
