Here's how to get every Deerling form in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.

Deerling is a Normal/Grass Dual-Type Pokemon that has made a return as one of the recurring Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet. Deerling is a unique ‘Mon, coming in four obtainable seasonal forms. In the past, these forms of any Deerling in-game were changed and influenced by the seasons mechanic. However, this mechanic has not returned in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, so Deerling functions slightly differently. So, follow along below for everything you need to know regarding how to get all Deerling forms in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.

Where to Find Every Deerling Form in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

In Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, every form of Deerling is located in a different section of the Paldea Region. To make things easier for you when trying to locate a specific Deerling form in the wild, we’ve included each form and where to find them below:

  • Deerling – Spring form: South Province (Area One, Four & Five)
  • Deerling – Summer form: East Province (Area Two)
  • Deerling – Autumn form: West Province (Area Two & Three)
  • Deerling – Winter form: Glaseado Mountain

How To Change the Form of Deerling in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

While you can seek out each individual form of Deerling, any Deerling you capture in-game is capable of changing its form. Because of this, you may also prefer only to capture one and simply have it change forms throughout your adventure in Paldea. Luckily, changing Deerling’s form is an automatic process and super easy to achieve. So, we’ve outlined exactly how to do this below.

You may have noticed that while Pokemon Scarlet and Violet don’t have changing seasons, each section of the Paldea Region seems broken up into season-based environments. To change the form of your Deerling, all you need to do is travel to a different section of the Paldea Region, save and quit your game, and then relaunch. Once your game launches, your Deerling will have changed its form based on the area you’re currently exploring.

This works based on the four areas of the map mentioned above. For example, if you catch a Deerling on Glaseado Mountain, it will be in Winter form. If you then travel to South Province, save and quit your game, then relaunch, your Deerling will have changed its form to Spring to match the environment.
