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.

SWADLOON


541 / SWADLOON - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Swadloon
Type: Bug/Grass  
Species: Leaf-Wrapped Pokémon
Height: 0.5 m (1′08″)
Weight: 7.3 kg (16.1 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Under its cloak are darker green, limp leaves which frame the sides of Swadloon's face and trail down on the sides of its body. The top of the cloak has two semicircular leaves that form a V shape. On its back are the veins of the leaf as well as a bit at the bottom tip of the cloak resembling a rounded tail. Swadloon lives on the forest floor and converts fallen leaves into nourishment, which helps the surrounding plant life grow.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 14.8 cm / 5.8 in
Width: 13.1 cm / 5.2 in
Depth: 21.4 cm / 8.4 in
Pages: 8 (5 normal pages, 3 to be printed on back)
Pieces: 34
Level: Easy
Designer: Brandon
Photo: Photos below provided by Ilana M (above) and Kara (below) via email!
Feel free to submit your own at our email and we'll display the best/most creative!
NOTES: Pretty easy one overall, the only real tricky part is doing the "double sided" pieces when printing. Be sure to print pages 5, 7, and 9 on the back of the previous pages (4, 6, 8). You can also skip printing these pages entirely, if you'd rather. From there, it builds pretty normally. Build the "body" first, going off the numbers. Add the scarf on top of the body once built. Then finish it off by topping it with the outer green "shell", and glue on the two leaves to the top of it.

MOLTRES


146 / MOLTRES - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Moltres
Type: Fire/Flying
Species:  Flame Pokémon
Height: 2.0 m (6'07″)
Weight: 60.0 kg (132.3 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Moltres sheds embers with every flap of its wings, creating a brilliant flash of flames. By dipping itself into the magma of an active volcano, this Pokémon can heal itself. It migrates to the south with the coming of spring and is said to bring an early springtime to cold lands. There have been stories of Moltres using its wings to assist those lost in the mountains. Moltres is rarely seen. In the past, Sky Attack was its signature move.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 14.9 cm/ 5.5 in
Width: 38.1 cm/ 6.3 in
Depth: 23.5 cm/ 5.1 in
Pages: 6
Pieces: 77
Level: Hard
Designer: Brandon
Photo: CrafterWong (CrafterWong's Site can be found here!)
NOTES: Build the model from the head and head flame downwards. When you get to the wings, build them and attach them to the body before moving on. When building the wings, build the entire yellow part first, folding the "feathery" edges to give it a slight sharpness and help support the fire/body. Then build the red part of the flame by gluing the white side of the paper together and trimming the excess white part off the model to your desire. If you're feeling fancy, you could even sort of feather the flame piece to give it a bit of definition too. Lastly, glue the red flames inside the yellow wing 'sleeve' and freehand glue them together. Work your way down until you get to the legs. Do NOT close the model with piece 69 until the model can stand by itself. Next, build the legs and tail flame (you can just simply attach this to the body whenever). When building the legs be very careful while building it. They are somewhat small and a toothpick or tweezers will help to make them. To get the model to stand by itself, wrap the wings around the body so that it prevents it from falling on itself. 

Also fun side note - noticed when making textures for this that Moltres occasionally has a red beak and legs instead of the pale apricot color. Textures are included for both.

GLOOM


044 / GLOOM - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Gloom
Type: Grass/Poison
Species:  Weed Pokémon
Height: 0.8 m (2'07″)
Weight: 8.6 kg (19.0 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Gloom trickles sticky nectar from its mouth with the appearance and consistency of drool. This can be used as a fertilizer for plants. Both this nectar and the flower on Gloom's head release a foul odor strong enough to induce fainting in humans over a mile (1.6 kilometers) away. However, it can also attract prey, and even a very small number of humans find it pleasing. This odor is a key ingredient for some perfume production. When it is in danger, the odor worsens, but it will not emit its odor if it feels safe.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 14.0 cm/ 5.5 in
Width: 16.1 cm/ 6.3 in
Depth: 13.0 cm/ 5.1 in
Pages: 6
Pieces: 46
Level: Easy
Designer: Brandon
Photo: CrafterWong (CrafterWong's Site can be found here!)
NOTES: Build the model from the head down and attach the arms when you get to them. Before closing the model, attach the lips, drool, orange leaves and bulbs to the body. Regarding the bulb, glue each individual bulb to each other before gluing them on top of the orange leaves. After closing the model, build the two legs. Place some counterweight, I cut up an eraser cap in each leg, in the foot. Glue one leg on to the model and then play with the gluing placement of the second model to allow the model to stand by itself. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!
Gloom's pictures are cleaned up to be drool free, but don't worry, the drool is all there in the files! 
Textures (and PDFs) included for both Male and Female bulbs too. Textures can be used to modify PDOs as well.
