Carnivine is a Generation 4 Pokemon that does not evolve from or into anything at the time of writing. It resembles a Venus Fly-trap and has vines that allow it to hang from trees. According to the Pokedex, its mouth opens to 180 degrees and it takes a whole day to eat the prey that are attracted into the sharp teeth.
How to Get & Where to Find
The best and only way to find Carnivine in Pokemon GO is to catch it in the wild. Since it is a Grass type Pokemon, and part of this first wave of Gen 4 Pokemon GO, it will probably be pretty easy to find in most locations. It may be beneficial to head to places like parks, or any area with a good amount of foliage around, but Carnivine should pop up in most locations. Even in large urban areas.
Also, since Gen 4 is new to Pokemon GO, it’s likely that the spawns of the new Pokemon are increased to take advantage of the hype.
