Okay so without straight knowing your team here's my suggestion
First their base stats
Raichu;
60 HP
90 Atk
55 Def
90 SpA
80 SpD
100 Spe
Ampharos:
90 HP
75 Atk
75 Def
115 SpA
90 SpD
55 Spe

Raichu has higher speed and attack but worse bulk and special attack.
Raichu also has a better movepool (in my opinion) with access to similar moves as Ampharos and also Nasty Plot.

Since bulk doesn't matter that much in games, and the whole thing is to hit hard and hit fast, I'd choose Raichu. He outspeeds most of the NPC Pokemon, hits hard and can hit both physically and specially unlike ampharos who is limited to specially

Therefore I'd choose Raichu

Hope I helped and GL choosing!

It all depends on what you are looking for personally in a Pokemon. Raichu has better Atk. and it also has more Spd.
On the other hand Ampharos has more Hp, Def, Sp. Def and Sp. Atk. Ampharos' problem in my opinion is his/her speed. In a double battle, for example, since it has low speed it can easily be targeted by faster Pokemon and can get K.Od without it even attacking... But you can always E.V train him/her... On the other hand, if you are looking for a Pokemon that may be useful in strategy then Ampharos can help you with that since it can learn some moves to lower special defenses etc etc... but looking closely Raichu can also...
Now its all up to you. :)

I honestly think both of these Pokemon are pretty epic. But if I had to choose one, it would be Raichu. It has better attack and it can be really fast if you evolve it from Pikachu while Pikachu knows agility. I hope this helped and if it didn't then tell me.

Ampharos is better. Stat wise, Raichu will only come in handy compared to Ampharos speed wise(Also attack, but they both have higher special attack). Concerning move pools, Ampharos' is more special based. which works more to it's advantage more than it would for Raichu . Overall, Ampharos tops Raichu when it comes to stats, and move pools.
