At what level should I evolve my Pikachu to a Raichu?

I've been leveling my Pikachu quite a bit lately, and I found this thunder stone a while ago, however, I do not know when to use It. I have tried: I've tried searching the web for help but there isn't really a good answer. I think it was caused by: I just haven't got to this point yet

Evolve it whenever you want. I suggest that you wait until it learns all the moves that you want it to because after it evolves into Raichu it won't learn any new moves by leveling up. Depending on what game you have, you should be able to find the most powerful move it learns in that game and what level it learns it on Bulbapedia. For example, the most powerful move it learns in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire is Thunder, which it learns at level 58.
