Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

In Black 2 and White 2, one of the scientist in the Season Research Lab on Route 6 will give a special rare Deerling with it's hidden ability Serene Grace.

Did you use this Deerling the scientist gives you on your team, or did you just box it?

I'm currently using it on my party and it's now a Sawsbuck, though I might eventually put into my PC for I already have a set team in the game. Though I thought I test it out and it's turning out to be an alright Pokemon in my opinion. While I love the concept of Deerling and Sawbuck's forms, I never found use for it on my team. It's Serene Grace ability really helps it and makes Sawbuck a much more appealing Pokemon to me. <-- Eh ignore that part. I guess not. I'm probably gonna box mine soon since I have a set team.

    I didn't use him because I already had a Roselia when I reached the lab, but I soft resetted for a female to be able to breed his ability into other Deerling.

    I received the Deerling, but I boxed it in that special box reserved for Special Ability Pokemon + Legendaries. I already had a full team of strong and dependable Pokemon and I don't train grass-types.

    As soon as I got one, I boxed it. Serene Grace isn't that useful on Deerling/Sawsbuck because they lack physical moves that have secondary chances of occurring.

      I used the Deerling to get Sawbuck for my pokedex. It wasn't that good so I boxed it after it evolved.

        I SRed until I got a female in case I wanted to propagate the Ability, then boxed it in the DW ability box (which is now up to two boxes). I don't use a set team, so that wasn't an issue, and in fact have a Sawsbuck that I use a fair amount. I just prefer Sap Sipper as an Ability.

        I dropped it in the PC since I couldn't get a use out of it. Actually I didn't even realize it having a special ability xD

        I decided not to get it because Serene Grace is a terrible ability for Deerling and I already had a Grass-type on my team, which was Roserade.

          I chose Snivy as my starter so I had no reason to take the Deerling, pretty sure I already had a five Pokémon party by that time and I caught my sixth (Aron) not too far thereafter.

          I planned out my team prior to starting, so I didn't use the special Deerling. Someday, I'd really like to have a Sawsbuck on my team. I enjoyed training a Deerling just to get it evolve for the dex data.

          I boxed it, there are more than 6 other Pokemon I like in Unova [we can only carry 6 at a time] I had no space in my team for it, other wise I might consider using it. I may use it, for variation, in my next running of Black2 or White2

          Boxed it.
          I never use grass types in my team, imo it's one of the most useless types... but that's me.

            Same as the rest, I boxed it in PC as soon as I caught it. And also, I don't use Grass-type Pokémon in my team. Soon though, I'l be training my Deerling to be a Sawsbuck once I have spare time.

            I started out with Snivy, so I didn't really have any spot in my party for the Deerling, so I just boxed it. I was lucky enough to get a female the first time though, in case I do want to breed it with it's special ability down the line (not that I do much of that anyway).

              As previously noted, Deerling/Sawsbuck can't make any practical use of Serene Grace. Even if I wanted to use it, I would've gotten one with Chlorophyll.

                Boxed it right away. In my opinion, Sap Sipper is much better on Deerling and Sawsbuck.

                  I never bothered getting Serene Grace Deerling, because has little use for the ability with its current movepool.
