Sawsbuck may derive from ''{{wp|sawbuck}}'', a device for holding rough wood so that it may be sawn and ''buck'', a term for male deer. "Saws" is also likely an acronym of the names of the seasons (Summer, autumn, winter and spring). Mebukijika is likely a combination of 芽吹き ''mebuki'', to bud, and 鹿 ''shika'', deer.

Sawsbuck (Japanese: メブキジカ Mebukijika) is a dual-type Normal/Grass Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Deerling starting at level 34.

Biology

Physiology

Sawsbuck is a deer-like Pokémon that is mainly brown and cream in coloration. In its spring form, blossoms with pink petals and yellow insides adorn its antlers, with some of the prongs being tipped with cream coloration. Its ears are rhombus-shaped with darker, also rhombus-shaped ear insides. Its eyes have light-orange markings that curve down to sides of its face. Its nose is dark-brown, and its chin, as well as the sides of its face, are cream in 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.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Sawsbuck change their appearance with the seasons, in the following ways:

  • Spring: Tuft of cream fur on chest, flowers on growing antlers, a little extra fur on limbs, tail pointed down.
  • Summer: No extra fur anywhere except back of head and tail which both curl up, antlers fully grown with green leaves, overall a more "alive" appearance, tail pointed up.
  • Fall: Cream fur back on chest and limbs, antlers have red and brown leaves, tail pointed down.
  • Winter: Cream fur on chest and limbs has expanded and is white looking somewhat like a fur coat, antlers white and bare, tail pointed down.

Behavior

Sawsbuck live in herds. The herd is led by the Sawsbuck with the most splendid looking horns. The flowers on the horns change according to the seasons.

Trivia

  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Sawsbuck and its pre-evolution, Deerling.
  • Sawsbuck's Summer Form is the only one of its forms to have its tail up, no fur on the neck and completely brown legs.

Origin

Sawsbuck may be based on a Père David's Deer, which is a species of deer that decorates its antlers with foliage during the breeding season. Its antlers may also be based on a deciduous tree.

Name origin

Sawsbuck may derive from sawbuck, a device for holding rough wood so that it may be sawn and buck, a term for male deer. Mebukijika is likely a combination of 芽吹き mebuki, to bud, and 鹿 shika, deer.
