I would actually evolve it either right away or at level 26. Another option is to never evolve it.

The only move that is worth teaching it is Thunderbolt. This can be taught to Raichu using the move relearner. Or even by TM if you want. However, if you don't want either of these, you can have Pikachu evolve after learning Thunderbolt.

The other option is to never evolve Pikachu. This is if you get the Light Ball item, which makes Pikachu arguably more useful for ingame (and some might contend competitive also).

I don't get the question. But probably around lv. 45 so it can learn all its moves.

I say evolve it at level 37 because after discharge it dosent learn any moves that are really Worth it but if you have the light ball you should consider not evolving pikachu at all because the light Ball dosent work for Raichu.

until it learns volt tackle

Raichu i don't think you realize this but Pichu learns Volt Tackle and only Via light ball so your answer would be invalid as an actual answer.
