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.
*sigh* File it next to Luvdisc -> Alomomola for now.
Why do I have to move with the crowd of kids that hardly notice I'm around? I work myself to death just to fit in.
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?" -_-
