The Tirtouga Line is a group of chelonid Pokémon that were native to the waters surrounding the Unova region about 100 million years ago before becoming extinct and being brought back through fossil revival, mainly through the use of a Cover Fossil. The first morph, Tirtouga, is a chelonid Pokémon about 0.7 m long and 16.5 kg in weight on average. They are blue in color, with a black shell, beak, and “mask” around their faces, as well as black nubs on their front flippers.

During the period that the Tirtouga Line inhabited the Earth, the area that would one day be known as Unova was mostly underwater. According to the fossil record, Tirtouga and Carracosta mainly spent their time offshore along the continental shelf, but would occasionally come onshore for the sake of hunting prey and breeding.

There are many theories that have attempted to explain what had made the Tirtouga Line go extinct. Some of these include competition from the precursors to the [[{{FanonPokedex/Squirtle}} Squirtle Line]], and climate change near the end of the Cretaceous. The most popular theory is that they died off due to an asteroid impact at the end of Cretaceous killing off their main sources of food, leaving the Tirtouga Line to die a slow death via lack of food and competition with predators better equipped to handle post-impact conditions. This was not an instant death though, it occurred over hundreds of thousands of years.

The members of the Tirtouga Line are mainly loners that keep to themselves as a general rule, though they are not territorial towards other members of their species, choosing instead to mainly ignore them when it’s not mating season. However, during times of migration observed within private reserves, they will travel together in large numbers though these groups lack any sort of hierarchy. However, if attacked they will work as a group to fight back against an attacker.

Within human culture Tirtouga Line members have been fairly popular, being a staple of any prehistoric documentary dealing in aquatic life, as well as in various children’s movies. Two famous examples include a century old Carracosta that assists a father and his companion on their journey to find the former’s [[WesternAnimation/FindingNemo son]], and an atypically cave dwelling Carracosta that serves as an ally to [[WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime a number of hatchlings of various prehistoric Pokémon]] forced to explore a dangerous new area. The “masks” of Tirtouga and Carracosta are also commonly copied by masked wrestled. In recent times the militaries of various regions have been looking at the makeup of Tirtouga and Carracosta shells in an attempt to make better body armor, as they appear to work well against both melee weaponry and firearms.
