Sawsbuck (Japanese: メブキジカ Mebukijika) is a Normal/Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V. It changes appearance in accordance to the seasons currently present in the games.

Biology

Physiology

Sawsbuck, like its pre-evolution, resembles a fully grown deer with antlers no matter what gender it is, like reindeer (or caribou). Sawsbuck changes not its fur color, unlike Deerling, but rather changes the style of its antlers. In the spring flowers adorn them, in the summer, leaves cluster on them like trees, in fall the leaves become orange, and in winter its antlers become completely white and it gathers drifts of snow around its neck and hooves. The spots on its back also change colors with the seasons, to coincide with then color of the antlers: pink in spring, green in summer, orange in fall, and white in winter.

Evolution

Sawsbuck is the evolved form of Deerling as of level 34.
