Carracosta (アバゴーラ Abagoora) is a Water/Rock-type Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

Biology

Physiology

Carracosta is an ancient-looking reptilian Pokémon that resembles a large, bipedal sea turtle. Its body is dark blue and light blue, and it has a giant black rocky shell on its back. It also has a scaly black covering over its face and a very small tail. It has three oval-shaped, claw shaped markings on each of its front flippers and it has two toed feet bearing nails colored the same as its front appendages.

Behavior

Carracosta is an amphibious Pokémon, spending most of its time underwater and on land. Its front appendages are strongly developed and can knock out opponents in just a single slap as well as ripping a hole underneath a tanker. Carracosta consumes the shell and bones of its prey to fortify its sturdy shell. It hunts prey on dry land despite having slow land mobility.

Evolution

Carracosta is the evolved form of Tirtouga at level 37.

    Carracosta completely devours its prey—bones, shells, and all. Because of this, Carracosta's own shell grows thick and sturdy.

In Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, Carracosta is the adoptive father of the partner Pokémon.

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.
  • Tirtouga and its evolution Carracosta are the only Fossil Pokémon to have the Rock type as a secondary type instead of a primary one.
  • Similar to Carracosta, Drednaw is also a Water/Rock type turtle Pokémon.

Origin

Carracosta is based on the Archelon, an extinct group of giant sea turtles. Its shell also resembles a bulletproof vest. It may also be based on Gamera, a large turtle kaiju.

Etymology

Carracosta comes from carapace (a protective shell of an animal) and costa (Latin, Spanish, and Portuguese for "coast").
