Deerling (Japanese: シキジカ Shikijika) is a Normal/Grass-type Pokémon. Its classification is the Seasonal Pokémon. It can change appearance in accordance to the seasons currently present in the games. In Spring it is pink, in Summer it is green, in Autumn it is orange, and in Winter it is brown. Its abilities are Chlorophyll and Sap Sipper. It evolves into Sawsbuck starting at level 34.


Deerling resembles a deer fawn and changes color during the four seasons. It varies from pink, green, orange and brown.

  • Deerling is based on either a Fallow Deer or a fawn.
  • Deerling's Japanese name is a combination of 四季 shiki, four seasons, and 鹿 shika, deer. The English name was formed with "deer" (since it resembles one) and "ling" since some baby animals carry that suffix, as in the words: duckling, fledgling (a bird who has just learned how to fly), and gosling.
  • Deerling and Sawsbuck are the only Pokémon that have seasonal forms.
