Is it even possible?

Is there a chance of getting thunder punch? I tried breeding a Male Raichu and a Female Pikachu to get a Lvl. 1 Pichu, but the only moves it got were Thunder Shock and Tail Whip.
Does the Raichu have Thunder Punch on it?

Pichu cannot learn Thunder Punch as an egg move in Sw/Sh (source). It can learn it using TM05 but getting that is in the late-game.

A solution would be Volt Tackle, which is obtained by breeding Pichu with one parent holding a Light Ball. That means the resulting Pichu will have Volt Tackle when it hatches

Hope this helps :)

Volt Tackle does have recoil but is powerful in compensation. Plus it’s easier for OP to obtain if they haven’t completed the game
Thanks a lot, will try :)
No prob :)
Btw have you completed the game, @awkward?
