Tirtouga by All0412 Tirtouga by All0412
:)
SO cute and cool :)

Its name comes from the English word "Dirt" (earth) and "Turtle" or the Italian word Tartaruga but the last r. While his Japanese name may come from "proto" (first), as it is a fossil Pokémon, and "turtle".
Its name comes from the French Carapagos union of words Carapasse (Shell) and Galapagos, which refers to the species in which Tirtouga is based, in a tortoise from the Galapagos.

It seems to be inspired by a type of extinct marine turtles, of which only preserved fossils, turtle Archelon. This Pokémon extinct algae fed on seabed. It is a fossil Pokémon loving and peaceful.

I think that you should make some note about the island of Tortuga en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tortuga_…

A name that similar sounding can't be a coincidence.
