Wow, this must be a very tiny deer. I don't think the information about it's weight and size are accurate....--MeDeoPal 21:03, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

good call. fixed. -- MAGNEDETH 21:07, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Name Origin

Its name is likely a combination of 芽吹き mebuki, to bud, and 鹿 shika, deer. - unsigned comment from KurowaSan (talkcontribs)

Form Changing

Does anyone know if Mebukijika changes formes like it's Pre-Evolution Shikijika?--Si6x12 01:49, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Yes. PhantomJunkie 02:15, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

You can see the formes here Vienna Waltz 11:11, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Wait, are we certain it changes form, or could it be a case like Wormadam, in which its form is locked in once it evolves? --AndyPKMN 15:53, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
Likely not locked, since unlike Wormadam, you'd potentially have to wait a third of the year to get the form you want. Plus, they're all Normal/Grass. TTEchidna 16:07, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
In-game seasons are only a month long, TTE.—Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 05:37, 16 September 2010 (UTC)
Thus, if you wanted a Spring one now, you'd have to wait a third of the year for the seasons to cycle around again to Spring. Bluesun 00:20, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
When someone creates the sprites table, we should put them there. Oh and by the way does the shiny sprite change in the season changing? - unsigned comment from DragonZekrom (talkcontribs)

Official art?

Why don't you use the official sugimori artwork instead of the Dream World artwork? --Mattii 23:48, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Because only one forme has official art while the dream world artwork has all the formes. - 050294 00:02, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

Official Name?

Are we sure that sawsbuck is the official name?Karnik555 03:12, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Yes we're sure.......Ataro 03:13, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Box Sprites

I just noticed that two of the forms' sprites just under the Sprites table are messed up. LimeGreenCharizard 15:48, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

French name origin

I'm reasonably sure "Haydaim" comes from Haydn + daim, not the English word "hay". I have no source, though; it just makes more sense. Plus I guess Poképédia lists the etymology as Haydn. Zhorken 20:10, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

To elaborate: Vivaldaim (Deerling) was almost definitely named after Antonio Vivaldi, composer of The Four Seasons. Similarly, Franz Joseph Haydn composed an oratorio titled The Seasons. - Zhorken 20:14, 2 September 2011 (UTC)

Horns versus antlers

According to the Pokédex, it has horns, not antlers. As such, I changed this in the Biology section. However, antlers seem much more accurate. The policy is to trust the all-mighty Pokédex, though, right? If not, please revert my edit. --Wynd Fox 04:12, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
