Alolan Raichu's gimmick is surfing. Not really the same thing they're going for.
I don't think they went through the trouble of forcing a Pikachu in the main cast only to step back in the middle or late in the series, like Charizard it's clear it's mostly there for merchandise. And even if it did evolve regular Raichu fits its though personality better.It would be cool if Cap evolved into an Alolan Raichu and learned to fly for real but I doubt that is going to happen. But it would be a great way to differentiate Cap from Ash's Pikachu who hated the idea of evolving and changing. I think it would fit Friede since he is somebody who grew up (representing a Genwunner in a way) unlike Ash who remained mostly the same and never aged.
