Carracosta (Japanese: アバゴーラ Abagoura) is a dual-type Water/Rock fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Tirtouga starting at level 37, after it is revived from a Cover Fossil.

Biology

Physiology

Carracosta resembles a bipedal, blue-colored sea turtle of some sort. Black, rocky structures encrust its face, back, and the sides of its chest, forming prongs on the "mask" and back, and somewhat pocket-like forms on the chest. Its flippers are long, with black fingers or fingerlike structures at the tips. Carracosta has rounded thighs, short legs, and two short black toes on each foot.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Carracosta has extremely strong jaws. It also has the power to open a hole in the bottom of a tanker with a slap.

Behavior

Habitat

Carracosta once lived in the sea millions of years ago. Today, the Pokémon is considered extinct.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Trivia

Origin

Carracosta appears to draw inspiration from Archelon. The fact it eats steel beams draws from the fact sea turtles are able to bend metal bars with their jaws.

Name origin

Carracosta is likely a portmanteau of the words carapace (a hard, protective covering, ie. a shell), and coast, a reference to its habitat.

Its Japanese name is most likely from 暴れる abareru, to trash/act violently and 甲羅 kōra, shell.
