You can't. The only way to get Raichu in Pokemon yellow is to trade your Pikachu to another game, give it a thunderstone, and then trade it back. I don't suggest this however, as once it is evolved into Raichu it will no longer follow you around in-game. Your best bet - if you want to take the time - is to catch a new pikachu (not available in yellow) on another game and use the thunderstone there and then trade it.
