Raichu can't use the Light Ball. And Raichu still has higher total base stats. However, it would have lower Attack and Sp. Attack, so Pikachu is sometimes used more often as a Sweeper.

Here are their base stats in the form HP/Atk/Def/SpA/SpD/Spd:

Pikachu (normal): 35/55/30/50/40/90 = 300 total
Pikachu (Light Ball): 35/110/30/100/40/90 = 405 total
Raichu: 60/90/55/90/80/100 = 475 total

So if RAICHU can't use the Light Ball, BLISSEY can't use the Lucky Punch?
what if pikachu is level 75 and raichu is only level 25
Levels wouldn't make a difference, only evolutionary forms.
