CORVIKNIGHT - Happy Thanksgiving!



823 / CORVIKNIGHT - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Corviknight
Type: Flying/Steel
Species: Raven Pokémon
Height: 2.2 m (7'03″)
Weight: 75.0 kg (165.3 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Corviknight is said to be the strongest bird Pokémon in the Galar region, being able to scare off any Pokémon that tries to challenge it. Due to its intelligence and flying skills, Corviknight serves a company called Galar Taxi, where it transports people from one location to another. Corviknight preys on Bunnelby. It has violent territorial clashes with Skarmory.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 19.0 cm / 7.5 in
Width: 45.2 cm / 17.8 in (This is the raised wings)
Depth: 23.9 cm / 9.4 in
Pages: 16 (No need to print last page)
Pieces: 98 (Raised Wings)/92 (Closed wings, pictured) 
Level: Medium
Designer: Brandon
Photo: CrafterWong
Chibi Corviknight pictured can also be found here!
NOTES: Build the model from the head down and attach the wings and legs when you get to the noted locations (further notes on last page, no need to print that). For the wings use the small dent, from part 23 and 24 to guide the wing placement. Be sure to build both/either set of wings from the tip upward as well, per numbers. Make sure the legs are attached and a small weight, I used two eraser caps, is put inside the model before closing the model. If you end up building the raised wings, it's also worthwhile to reinforce the joints for them on the inside (I would usually use scrap paper for that).

TIMBURR


532 / TIMBURR - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Timburr
Type: Fighting
Species: Muscular Pokémon
Height: 0.6 m (2′00″)
Weight: 12.5 kg (27.6 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Timburr's Pokédex entry supports that it and its evolutions are based on construction workers. Due to its clown nose, it may have also been based on a carny. Timburr is a gray bipedal Pokémon with a dark purple nose and dark-gray oval-shaped eyes. It has bulbous protrusions extending from the front and lower parts of its head. Pink, vein-like bulges are present on the back of its head. Similar pink bands adorn its shoulders and thighs. It always carries squared logs and uses them to fight with.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 23.0 cm / 9.1 in
Width: 13.6 cm / 5.4 in
Depth: 14.2 cm / 5.6 in
Pages: 5
Pieces: 44
Level: Easy/Medium
Designer: Brandon
Photo: Feel free to submit your own at our email and we'll display the best/most creative!
NOTES: Start at the top of the head, following the numbers down. The head, shoulders, arms, and body are all separate parts and glue together after being built (and log, of course). The hands are tricky, so just take the needed time there.

ZYGARDE



718 / ZYGARDE (50% Forme) - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Zygarde
Type: Dragon/Ground
Species: Order Pokémon
Height: 5.0 m (16′05″)
Weight: 305.0 kg (672.4 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Zygarde is a Pokémon whose form depends on the percentage of its Cores and Cells gathered together. Zygarde Core is the brain of Zygarde. It is a small, green Pokémon with a gelatinous body. It has a large, round head with a beak-shaped protrusion on the front, a thin, hook-shaped tail, and a red hexagon suspended in its body. Within its head is a single eye with a black pupil; beside this eye is another white oval that may be a second eye.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 21.9 cm / 8.6 in
Width: 21.0 cm / 8.3 in
Depth: 16.9 cm / 6.7 in
Pages: 6
Pieces: 41
Level: Medium
Designer: Brandon
Photo: Photo below by Hunter B via email!
Feel free to submit your own at our email and we'll display the best/most creative!
NOTES: Start from the head, work your way back - be careful with the back 'fins' - they're a little thin, and will need to be connected to each other pretty carefully. Once the head and fins are made, it's pretty smooth sailing; just finish the tail, and attach the last 5 pieces to the back of the closed tail. Will likely need weight in the back half of the body/tail to counterbalance the head properly as well.

Interesting Facts: Deerling is a fawn-like Pokémon, most resembling a fallow deer. The upper side of its body is pink in the spring, green in the summer, orange in the autumn, and brown in the winter. It has a yellow patterned rim, and its underside is peach. It sports a yellow floral tuft on its head, and similar yellow coloration on the insides of its tapering ears. The tips of its limbs are colored black and its pink tail is small. It can change in appearance with the changing of the seasons. If it senses animosity, it hides in tall grass. It moves in herds as it is timid around humans. It dwells in sparsely populated areas, away from humans. It is herbivorous.

CHANDELURE (Halloween Finale!)



609 / CHANDELURE- Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Chandelure
Type: Ghost/Fire
Species: Luring Pokémon
Height: 1.0 m (3′03″)
Weight: 34.3 kg (75.6 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Chandelure is a Pokémon that resembles a sentient chandelier. It has a striped, round head, and round, pupil-less yellow eyes. There is a ring of small, black spikes on top of its head with a tall, purple flame in the middle. From a black spike below its head, black arms curl upward. These arms are tipped with purple fire. Chandelure's fires do not burn its victims physically, instead burning their spirit. After hypnotizing its opponent by waving these flames, it absorbs the victim's spirit.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 18.7 cm / 7.4 in
Width: 7.8 cm / 3.1 in
Depth: 19.0 cm / 7.5 in
Pages: 6
Pieces: 52
Level: Hard
Designer: Brandon
Photo: CrafterWong (including the chibi Chandelure shown, which can be found here!)
NOTES: When building the head, do not close the model (Piece 15) until you have attached the black lattices (Pieces 18-30) to the base of the flame and the eyes in the desired spots. A screenshot has been included to show how these are placed as well. The arms are the hardest part to build. I would recommend building the swirl of the curvy part and flames (pieces 31-35, 40-44) first and attach them together. I would then build the arms starting with the tube closest to the end of the arm that was just built and end with the tube that connects to the body. Pieces have been numbered to indicate this as well. CrafterWong was able to get away with only having to build the build stand and strategically placing the arms to support the weight of the body- but additional bases (49, 50) have been included to help if needed as well.

LAMPENT (Halloween Part 2!)


608 / LAMPENT - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Lampent
Type: Ghost/Fire
Species: Lamp Pokémon
Height: 0.6 m (2′00″)
Weight: 13.0 kg (28.7 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Lampent can sense when someone is about to die, whom it visits and steals the spirit from the person's body. Though most often found in deep forests, it wanders through cities and hangs around near hospitals to absorb the spirits of the fallen. It uses the spirits it has absorbed to fuel its fire. On occasion, it has been known to work with Litwick to lead people to the Ghost World while stealing life energy.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 15.3 cm / 6.0 in
Width: 13.2 cm / 5.2 in
Depth: 17.1 cm / 6.7 in
Pages: 6 (5+base)
Pieces: 19
Level: Easy/Medium
Designer: Brandon
Photo: CrafterWong (including the chibi Lampent shown, which can be found here!)
NOTES: The model can stand by itself without having to build any supports, but a base is included on the last page just in case - if you want to skip the base, just skip the last page. The only thing I recommend is to glue another sheet of scratch paper inside the model in order to give the arms a little extra support. The arms are the only difficult thing here, so just be sure they're stable and properly enforced when attaching them. 
The face texture was lightened up significantly after the build as well, to give it a better contrast than pictured.

Name: Litwick
Type: Ghost/Fire
Species: Candle Pokémon
Height: 0.3 m (1′00″)
Weight: 3.1 kg (6.8 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Litwick is a small, candle-like Pokémon with a purple flame atop its head, which is powered by life energy that it absorbs. Its body and two stubby arms are made primarily out of white wax. The folded, melted wax lays over its right eye, and leaves only the bright yellow left eye visible. It has a small smile under a protruding upper lip. Litwick pretends to guide people and Pokémon around by illuminating darkened areas. However, it is actually sucking away their life energy and leading them to the Ghost World.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 11.4 cm / 4.5 in
Width: 6.1 cm / 2.4 in
Depth: 6.6 cm / 2.6 in
Pages: 2
Pieces: 24
Level: Easy
Designer: Brandon
Photo: CrafterWong (including the chibi Litwick shown, which can be found here!)
NOTES: Build from the top down. Before attaching the last bottom piece, glue the head piece and then the flame to the desired position and then attach the last piece that does not have tabs.
