Carracosta is an Archelon-like Pokémon that appears as a playable character for the Rock Team.

Character DescriptionEdit

A Water/Rock type Pokémon introduced in Generation V that evolves from Tirtouga in level 37, Carracosta is a fossil Pokémon that can only be received from the Cover Fossil. They can live on both land and the ocean. A slap from one of them is enough to open a hole in the bottom of a tanker. They have incredible jaw strength that enables them to chew up steel beams, rocks and their prey. They can even chew up shells and bones if possible. They are known of their incredible defense stat but since it's a turtle, they are quite slow.

In PokéSmashEdit

Carracosta appears as a playable character for the Rock Team. Like in the games, he has good offense and defense but is the slowest character in the game next to Escavalier and Spiritomb. His Neutral Special is to use Rock Blast. His Side Special is to get in his shell and slide on the floor. His Up Special is to use a geyser to propel himself up. His Down Special is to use Shell Smash.

His in-game description here:


"Armored tank coming this way! The ancient turtle is here to slap some sense into the other enemies! Watch out for his Shell Smash! Or else you'll truly know a turtle's speed."
