How can Elikiteru not be a Mawile prevo?!

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.

Because it's Electric/Normal type.

They don't even look that much alike.
so drag me down to the ocean floor, 'cause i don't wanna fight no more

Because one is a lizard and one is a futakuchi-onna.

Why does everyone keep saying Mawile? It looks nothing like Mawile.

It's a frilled lizard

They're not even the same color yellow, and Elikiteru's ears give absolutely NO indication of Mawile's back of head motif

Because... other than colors, it looks nothing like it!
More of a Pokemon fan than TherianReturns will ever be.

Good thing it isn't. Mawile sucks.

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?" -_-
