Deerling (シキジカ) is the 91st Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Normal/Grass type, and is known as the Seasonal Pokémon.

Deerling can use one of two Abilities: Chlorophyll, which doubles its Speed when the weather becomes Clear Skies, but this doesn't take effect on the same turn in which the weather turns; or Sap Sipper, which gives it an immunity to Grass-Type attacks, and if it gets hit by one its Attack increases by one stage. A third Ability is available to Deerling that come from the Dream World, the Serene Grace Ability. This Ability doubles the chances of an attack having a secondary effect.

Deerling gain the opportunity to evolve into Sawsbuck starting at Level 34.

Deerling is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Deerling One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
