Carnivine (Japanese: マスキッパ Muskippa) is a Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

Biology

Physiology

Carnivine is undoubtedly one of the strangest looking Pokémon. It appears to resemble a venus flytrap, with huge jaws and red and green vines that it uses to hang from mangrove trees in the marshes where it lives. Carnivine also has leaves where it's arms should be. Carnivine does not move much, it simply hangs upside-down and waits for bugs such as Ledyba, to fly by.

Special abilities

Carnivine only has the ability Levitate which allows it to float in the air and become resistant to Ground-type moves. It is said to look like a plant that hangs from branches by using his tentacles. Carnivine lets out its sweet-smelling saliva to attract prey and chomps on the prey. Carnivine takes an entire day to eat its prey.

Evolution

Carnivine does not evolve.
