Sawsbuck (メブキジカ) is the 92nd Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Normal/Grass Type, and it is known as the Season Pokémon.

Sawsbuck can have one of two Abilities: Chlorophyll, an Ability that doubles its Speed when the weather is Sunny, but the effect doesn't take place on the same turn in which the weather turns Sunny by way of either Sunny Day or Drought; or Sap Sipper, which increases its Attack by one level should it get hit by a Grass-Type attack, and the Ability also prevents damage from Grass-Type Attacks.

A third Ability is available to Sawsbuck that come from the Dream World, the Serene Grace Ability. This Ability doubles the chances of its Attacks having a secondary effect.

Deerling can evolve into a Sawsbuck starting at Level 34.

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


[edit] Biology

[edit] Physiology

Sawsbuck is a deer-like Pokémon that is mainly brown and cream in coloration.

[edit] Gender Differences

Sawsbuck doesn't have any differences that differentiate between male or female across all four forms.

[edit] Form Differences

In its spring form, blossoms with pink petals and yellow insides adorn its antlers, with some of the prongs being tipped with cream coloration. A large scruff of cream fur is present on the base of its neck, with its underbelly, as well as its lower legs, being cream-colored as well. Light-orange stripes rim its underbelly, and its back is decorated with sparse pink speckles. The limbs of Sawsbuck are slender, tipped with hooves and a dewclaw-like pointed feature on the underside of the lower legs, and its tail is low and pointed.

Sawsbuck's Summer Form features green leaves that have grown over the majority of its antlers. There is no scruff of fur on its neck, and its tail points slightly upward.

The Autumn Form still features the leaves, but they have become red-brown in appearance. The scruff of fur on its neck regrows, and the tail and hooves take the a similar appearance to the Spring Form.

The Winter Form features no plant-like growth on its antlers. Instead, the antlers appear as a deers' antlers would. The scruff of fur on the front of its neck has grown all around the neck, and extra fur has grown at its hooves, providing extra warmth.
