NOTES: Build the model from the head down attaching each segment to the overall model as you go. For the head, build it from the top down and attach the side headpieces prior to closing the head with piece 12. For the bottom body segment, build the legs first and then attach the other pieces of the segment closing that specific section with piece 44. Besides that the model is quite simple and easy to build.

NOTES: Start by building piece 1 and build the head from the bottom to the top. Before closing the head, attach all the extra pieces, noted as Braids (and Bows) to the head.

These ribbon-like feelers are used to amplify Gothita's psychic power. It has two large blue eyes with three eyelashes on each and small red lips.

FERALIGATR


160 / FERALIGATR - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Feraligatr
Type: Water
Species: Big Jaw Pokémon
Height: 2.3 m (7′07″)
Weight: 88.8 kg (195.8 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Feraligatr opens its powerful jaws to intimidate its foes and viciously shakes its head once it clamps down on foes or prey. Because it has difficulty supporting its weight out of the water, it has been known to move on all fours. However, when hunting or fighting, it is agile and fast, due to its powerful hind legs. Feraligatr can rarely be found living near the water's edge.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 17.7 cm / 7.0 in
Width: 21.9 cm / 8.6 in
Depth: 22.6 cm / 8.9 in
Pages: 10
Pieces: 81
Level: Medium-Hard
Designer: PODragon
Photo: Feel free to submit your own at our email and we'll display the best/most creative!
NOTES: Slightly tough, but if you can get past all the "rough skin" patches that are a bit embossed, it can go by quick. Build following the numbers, starting with the mouth and work your way down. Build the arms from the fingers to the shoulders, attach them when you can, and keep working down the body. Attach the tail before starting to work towards the bottom of the feet to close. Use the pedal base to help it stand (and give it some style 😎) Optional microphone included as well.

GENESECT


649 / GENESECT - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Genesect
Type: Bug/Steel 
Species: Paleozoic Pokémon
Height: 1.5 m (4′11″)
Weight: 82.5 kg (181.9 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Genesect was revived from a Fossil and technologically enhanced by Team Plasma to create the most powerful Pokémon ever. N had the project canceled and the P2 Laboratory closed because he felt that Pokémon, who he thought to be perfect beings, would lose their beauty if modified by science. However, Scientist Dudley kept working on it, angry that N denied his talent. This scientist reconstructed Genesect and installed the cannon on its back.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 21.8 cm / 8.6 in
Width: 26.2 cm / 10.3 in
Depth: 33.0 cm / 13.0 in
Pages: 13
Pieces: 99
Level: Hard
Designer: Brandon
Photo: Feel free to submit your own at our email and we'll display the best/most creative!
NOTES: Pretty tough one overall, with some small pieces, but manageable for sure - even better if you can use the PDO for reference. Any pieces with an "_S" after are only intended for use with the Extremespeed form (picture in Textures folder for reference), which is much more compact and does not need the base. Notes on the template for which pieces need replaced for that as well. Build from the head back, attaching the Cannon, working down toward the Abdomen. The abdomen and cannon are directly connected to each other for the normal form, but are distinctly separated for the Extremespeed form (as noted in template). Attach the shoulders and arms as you go, being pretty particular with the joints so that they're secure and stick. You may need to use a little extra glue, and let it stick and dry for a bit extra just to be sure. Same goes for the leg joints - try and use the base to center and weight the body before fully gluing the legs on. All drives included to swap out as desired. If building the Extremespeed form, the head, cannon (minus pieces 15/16, simply not needed), abdomen, legs, arms will all be separate, self enclosed pieces that glue together after they're all build. Head to Cannon, Abdomen inside, then arms and legs on the frame (like the picture included in Textures). Pages 8-9 are unique to the standing form, and pages 13-14 are unique to the Extremespeed form - feel free to skip the pair of pages that don't correspond to your desired form.

WURMPLE


265 / WURMPLE - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Wurmple
Type: Bug 
Species: Worm Pokémon
Height: 0.3 m (1′00″)
Weight: 3.6 kg (7.9 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Wurmple has suction pads at the tips of its feet, which allow it to cling to glass or tree branches without slipping. It can spit white silk that turns gooey when exposed to the air. It can release poison from its tail spikes, which can weaken and poison foes. Wurmple lives in forests. It eats leaves and pulls bark off trees to feed on the sap. Taillow, Swellow, and Starly are natural predators of Wurmple.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 16.0 cm / 6.2 in
Width: 9.8 cm / 3.9 in
Depth: 19.9 cm / 7.8 in
Pages: 4 
Pieces: 39
Level: Medium
Designer: Brandon
Photo: Feel free to submit your own at our email and we'll display the best/most creative!
NOTES: Not quite as easy as I'd like it to be, but Wurmple is definitely a spikey little worm. Start from the horns on the head, and work your way down. The spikes that are part of the body are numbered to attach as you go, and the spikes that glue on the outside of the body are numbered afterward. Close the body at the white underbelly, and then gently glue on the feet and spikes accordingly. The red spikes don't have tabs to attach, but should be pretty easy to add a thin layer of glue on the edges of the spikes and press them into place on the body. Image included for reference as to where all the spikes go as well.

SIGILYPH


561 / SIGILYPH - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Sigilyph 
Type: Psychic/Flying
Species: Avianoid Pokémon
Height: 1.4 m (4′07″)
Weight: 14.0 kg (30.9 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Sigilyph will use its psychic powers to attack anyone who invades its territory. Due to it retaining memories from when it guarded an ancient city or served as the guardians' emissaries, it apparently flies along the same route constantly.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 24.2 cm / 9.5 in
Width: 7.3 cm / 2.9 in
Depth: 23.2 cm / 9.1 in
Pages: 3
Pieces: 50
Level: Medium
Designer: Brandon
Photo: Feel free to submit your own at our email and we'll display the best/most creative!
NOTES: Pretty easy one overall- build from the antennae down, attaching spikes and antennae as you go. The bottom antennae are its own, self enclosed piece to make it easier to close at the bottom of the body with the inverted triangle, and then insert the antennae's triangle into the bottom. It will almost certainly need a base or hung up in some way.
