He didn't give Pikachu proper instructions, and Raichu won the fight, giving Pikachu severe injuries that put him in the hospital (pokemon centre). Nurse Joy gave Ash a thunder stone and Ash gave Pikachu the choice whether he wanted to evolve or not.
Pikachu eventually slapped the thunder stone out of Ash's hand, stating he'd win in honor of all Pikachu without evolving. Team Rocket is touched by this, and decide to cheer Pikachu on before his rematch. When Pikachu battles Lt. Surge's Raichu again, he wins this time.
This is because Brock pointed out that Lt. Surge evolved his Pikachu into Raichu before it could learn certain speed attacks like Agility or Quick Attack. Ash used Pikachu's speed to his advantage. Despite this, Ash barely guided Pikachu or gave Pikachu any directions and he won anyways.
Anyways, moving onto the Diamond/Pearl series episode.
Pika and Goliath episode 543
Sho's Raichu vs. Ash's Pikachu
In this episode the gang is eating lunch when suddenly a Pichu appears. The Pichu signals it's trainer who is in search of a Pikachu and he mistakes Ash's Pikachu as a wild one. He repeatedly offers pokemon in return for Pikachu but Ash continues to reject his offers, stating that Pikachu is his friend. Ash challenges Sho (the trainer) to a battle.
Sho accepts and as they battle Pikachu is already on a rough start. His size is a disadvantage against Raichu and Raichu's Iron tail is more likely to hit due to his tail being longer. Raichu finishes the battle by pinning Pikachu with his tail against a rock and using hyper beam.
Pikachu ends up in the pokémon centre again and temporarily goes unconcious as Nurse Joy tries to save him.
Ash saved the thunder stone from last time and again gives Pikachu the opportunity to evolve. Pikachu sneaks out at night and Ash is afraid that Pikachu evolved without letting him know. He finds Pikachu training at night, and the 2 train for the rest of the night. Early the next day, Pikachu is still training with Ash. He later challenges Raichu to a rematch and this time he is prepared for his attacks.
