Pokémon Black & White
The second Deerling he battled, Emile/Blair caught Deerjeling in his Summer form on Route 6 using Haywire, to complete a sidequest. Emile showed the scientist on that Route Deerjeling in his Summer form, and then manipulated the clock to show him in his Autumn, Winter, and Spring forms as well. For his efforts, Emile received a Leaf Stone.
Deerjeling, along with the rest of Emile's catalog of Pokémon, was seen in the PC when Emile was looking for a Pokémon to teach Fly.
Deerjeling has an Impish Nature, increasing his Defense stat and decreasing his Special Attack stat.
