PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Vine Whip + Crunch and Power Whip

Wine Whip is more preferable for its significantly better energy generation, though Bite can catch opponents off guard with its superior damage output.

Power Whip is a very strong charge move, and benefits from STAB. Energy Ball deals the same damage, but costs 10 more energy which makes it a direct downgrade. Crunch is recommended for its lesser energy cost, in addition to it being the only coverage charge move available. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 2 / 5

Carnivine is a mono-Grass Pokemon with average bulk and an interesting moveset with Dark-type coverage. Crunch and Bite gives it a niche as a Grass without a Dark defensive typing. However its stats, bulk, and typing are somewhat lackluster when considering the overall meta. That doesn't mean Carnivine is a bad Pokemon; it can easily dispatch most meta Water-types with ease, but without a typing advantage it falls behind other meta picks. 

Ultra League: 1 / 5

Carnivine has a max CP of 2159, which is insufficient for Ultra League. While it has a niche at beating certain Water Pokemon, a loss against Lapras, in addition to most other meta Pokemon, makes this plant difficult to recommend for this league. And no, Bite movesets can not beat Giratina or any of the meta Psychic Pokemon. 

Master League: 0 / 5

Carnivine would look like a salad when considering the stats of legendaries roaming Master League.
