Same color scheme, similar ears, but mostly that triangle shape on both of their faces.
But no, if Elikiteru is Electric-type, then I guess it's unrelated… Yes, Azurill was Normal-type but since Normal->Water is much more believable than Electric->Steel, and Mawile can't learn Thunderbolt/Thunder, it's probably a separate Pokémon.

They're not even the same color yellow, and Elikiteru's ears give absolutely NO indication of Mawile's back of head motif --- Aut viam inveniam, aut faciam.

I remember topics like this when Drapion was revealed in Coro Coro, with people swearing it must be related to Gligar. Some even use a similar logic with the vast difference in typing, "Azurill exists so why can't a Poison/Dark evolve from a Ground/Flying?" -_- --- [Este mensaje fue borrado al deseo del dueno]
