The Four Seasons of Sawsbuck! (Japanese: メブキジカ！ 春夏秋冬勢揃い！！ Mebukijika! The Four Seasons Lineup!!) is the 54th episode of the Best Wishes series, and the 711th episode of the Pokémon anime. It first aired in Japan on November 3, 2011 and in the United States on March 24, 2012.
In a Pokémon Center, Ash and his friends meet a boy with a camera named Robert. He explains his dream of photographing Pokémon across the world. He is immediately interested in Pikachu, and takes photos while Iris, Cilan, and Ash look through his scrapbooks. They find a strange picture of Sawsbuck from all four seasons together, which was supposed to be impossible. Robert's grandfather was also a Pokémon photographer, and
took the photo of the Sawsbuck, which was his most prized possession. Robert decided to find the very spot of the photo, and Ash and friends agree to go with him to help.
Robert explains to them that flowers found in the photo are only found on a certain mountain, and they set off to climb it. While on the mountain, a mysterious fog surrounds them. Ash and Robert get lost, and see a Deerling, which supposedly will lead them to the leader Sawsbuck. They start chasing it until Robert gets poisoned by an Amoonguss, with no Antidotes between them. They spend the night lost on the mountain, and Ash waits until daybreak. With Robert on his back, Ash starts to try to leave the mountain. The Deerling they saw before leads them to a summer Sawsbuck by a spring. Sawsbuck summons three other forms, which were the same Sawsbuck in the photo. A bright light starts shining from a nearby spring, and Robert is healed. As Robert tries to take a photo, they leave in the mysterious fog and he is left with a very blurry photograph.
The fog comes again and envelops Ash and Robert. Suddenly Iris and Cilan run up to them and question them. They find out that Ash and Robert were frozen in time, and that whatever happened to them is the only way to find the four Sawsbuck. As Robert departs, everything is well again.
