Trivia

  • Carracosta's types, Water and Rock, share the same type with the Kanto Fossils: Omanyte and Kabuto, while Archeops' types, Rock and Flying, share the same type with the third Kanto Fossil: Aerodactyl.
    • It can also be a parallel to Omastar.
  • Tirtouga and its evolution Carracosta are the only Fossil Pokémon to have the Rock type as a secondary type instead of a primary one.
  • Drednaw is also a Water/Rock type turtle Pokémon.

Origin

Tirtouga is based on the Archelon, an extinct group of giant sea turtles. It could be possible that Carracosta was based from the Daiei's kaiju monster Gamera, similar to how Tyranitar was based from Toho's kaiju monster Godzilla.

Etymology

Carracosta's English name seems to be derived from "carapace", the upper turtle shell and "costa" (Latin, Spanish, and Portuguese for coast).
