Both appear in a region where they do not appear in real life (no cacti in NYC, no lions in France).

Both basic stage electric types (Pikachu has a preevo, but it's baby Pokemon, so Pika is still basic stage) that can be caught early on in their debut generations.

Both are a single type and learn quite a few Normal-type moves by leveling up. (Torkoal's spelt with a k, btw)

Both Carbink and Vikavolt are fully-evolved. (Carbink doesn't evolve, but Vikavolt is the final form of Grubbin),

Both are Pokémon native to American-based regions, and can learn a few Electric-type moves.
