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

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

Biology

Carnivine with its mouth opened wide

Carnivine is a green Pokémon resembling a Venus Flytrap. Its circular eyes have small pupils, and it has spiky teeth. Its stem is yellow with green spots, with red and green vines beneath with the appearance of tentacles. It can hang from tree branches using these vines, and it is said to look like a plant. It has two arms resembling leaves with three leafy 'fingers' each. Its mouth can open to about 180 degrees wide. With its mouth wide open, it attracts the prey it waits for with a sweet-smelling saliva, then chomps down. It takes a whole day to eat prey. It lives in forests and marshes. Its diet consists mostly of insects and small bugs.
