Tirtouga (Japanese: プロトーガ Purotooga) is a Generation V Water/Rock-type Fossil Pokémon. Tirtouga can be revived from the Cover Fossil. It is based on the prehistoric sea turtle, Archelon.


Tirtouga is extremely similar to a sea turtle, bearing a black/blue shell. Its skin is lighter blue, with its face covered in a marking that is the same color as its shell. It has more of these markings in the middle of its fins.


Tirtouga, alongside Carracosta will appear in BW077&nbsp and BW078


Tirtouga evolves into Carracosta at level 37.

  • Tirtouga is the fifth prehistoric Water-Rock Type Pokémon, the other Pokémon being Kabuto, Kabutops, Omanyte, and Omastar.
  • The name "Tirtouga" may be based on the words "turtle" and the Caribbean island of Tortuga or maybe the word "Tortuga" meaning turtle in Spanish. Also there is a chance its name comes from "Tartaruga" which is Italian for turtle.
