Pikachu wins this MU and this is one of Bowser’s worst matchups in Smash Ultimate.

Pikachu has better frame data than Bowser combos him hard with up tilt and has thunder jolt to pressure him in neutral due to Bowser’s large size. If Bowser tries to dair or bowser bomb in disadvantage Pikachu can easily punish with aerials oos or run away then punish easily. Bowser has fire breath but Pikachu can jump over and use an aerial or thunder jolt, its hard for Bowser to hit Pikachu due to Pika small size. Pikachu’s fast frame data allows Pika to punish Bowser’s aerials with its fast aerials oos or dash attack, grab to punish whiffs also Pikachu can spike Bowser's recovery now. However Bowser no longer has a frame 8 jumpsquat from past smash games and has frame 6 flying slam and improved power and is far heavier than Pikachu so Pikachu will die early to moves like forward smash, up smash bair etc and can tough guy through jab, however some of Pikachu's moves come faster than flying slam.

But overall with Pikachu's better frame data combos and thunder jolt Pikachu wins this matchup and is one of Bowser's worst matchups.

Bowser 3 / Pikachu 7
