In the anime there are no "levels" for pokemon, they just improve as they fight more battles and get happier and stronger. If there pokemon in the anime did "level up" Ash's pikachu would certainly be level 100(+ if possible).

But during Team Go-getters squirtle says I'm moving levels so fast !
pretty sure that the levels reset after every region so his pikachu goes back to lvl5 in unova for example, when zekrom made pikachus electricity stop working, which is why he lost to his new rival who started their journey. no source, its just my theory
Pretty sure it levelled up enough to learn Thunder before the Hoenn series
Something must happen to pikachu's level. It loses to a new snivy right after drawing with a latios.
Anime used plot convenience. It's super effective!
