Carnivine (Japanese: マスキッパ Muskippa) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Its appearance is based off of a Venus Flytrap. Instead of having legs like other Grass Pokémon (like Bellsprout), it has vines attached to the end of its stem, giving them the appearance of tentacles. The leaves act as arms, and the inside of its mouth secretes a sweet-smelling saliva, which it uses to attract prey.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Strangely, Carnivine has the ability to hover above the ground.

Behavior

Habitat

Carnivine inhabits forests, and marshes.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

James has a Carnivine that first appeared in Two Degrees of Separation!, an old childhood friend of his which he finds at his old family mansion in Sinnoh. It has replaced his Cacnea as his main battling Pokémon.

In the manga

In Pokémon Special, while the main protagonists were in the Great Marsh catching Pokémon, a Carnivine began chasing Be and Perahiko.

  • Prior to the release of Diamond and Pearl, fans believed it was an evolution of Weepinbell, due to similarities between the two.
