DARMANITAN ZEN



555 / DARMANITAN ZEN - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Darmanitan Zen
Type: Fire/Psychic
Species:  Zen Charm Pokémon
Height: 1.3 m (4'03″)
Weight: 92.9 kg (204.8 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: During Zen Mode, which is accessed by Darmanitan with the hidden Ability Zen Mode, its red fur and tan skin changes blue as it bears the resemblance of a Daruma doll. Its eyes turn blank, and its limbs fuse with its body, rendering them immobile. It also only has three toes, as opposed to normal Darmanitan having five. In this state, it is hard as a rock. As it is rendered immobile, it enters in a meditative trance to sharpen their minds, using it as strength emotionally and spiritually to battle and to perform everyday activities such as gather and eat food.

THE PAPER MODEL

CRUSTLE


558 / CRUSTLE - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Crustle 
Type: Bug/Rock
Species: Stone Home Pokémon
Height: 1.4 m (4′07″)
Weight: 200.0 kg (440.9 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Crustle is very strong, to the point that it can carry heavy rocks for a long time, even through arid lands where it resides. It fights members of its species over territory in battles which can become very vicious. If its shell breaks during such a fight, it loses. When Crustle's shell breaks, it will become weaker and unsure of itself. Crustle's biggest strength is its thick claws; being strong enough to break even Rhyperior's sturdy carapace.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 14.0 cm / 5.5 in
Width: 18.4 cm / 7.2 in
Depth: 14.5 cm / 5.7 in
Pages: 6
Pieces: 38
Level: Easy-Medium
Designer: Brandon
Photo: Feel free to submit your own at our email and we'll display the best/most creative!
NOTES: Not a bad one - the bulk of the model is the shell, which is pretty easy overall. Build the face pieces (mouth, eyes, claws) first to have them handy, then build the shell. Once the shell is made, all the pieces can glue onto the shell in their respective places (mouth, eyes, claws on piece 29; legs on the black circles on 30). Piece 38 is meant as a spacer to hold up the shell, as the shell should be raised slightly off the ground - and the legs certainly aren't managing that on their own haha.

Name: The Sus one 
Type: Imposter

NOTES: This model is really simple to build. Build the model from the top down and attach the eyes/visor and backpack before closing the model. Lastly, play with the placement of the legs as the model can stand by itself.

BOUFFALANT


626 / BOUFFALANT- Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Bouffalant
Type: Normal
Species: Bash Buffalo Pokémon
Height: 1.6 m (5′03″)
Weight: 94.5 kg (208.3 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: A territorial Pokémon, Bouffalant will headbutt anyone that attempts to invade its territory. However, in the anime, it has been known not to attack those with an afro hairstyle. Protected by its afro, which absorbs damage, its headbutts are strong enough to derail a train and send it flying. It can also destroy a car with just a Headbutt. The more hair a Bouffalant has on its head, the higher positions it has in the herd. A herd of Bouffalant consists of 20 individuals. For unclear reasons, a Bouffalant loses its hair from its head should it ever betray its herd.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 15.5 cm / 6.1 in
Width: 24.0 cm / 9.5 in
Depth: 23.8 cm / 9.4 in
Pages: 7
Pieces: 53
Level: Medium
Designer: Brandon
Photo: Feel free to submit your own at our email and we'll display the best/most creative!
Current Photo (below): from Ilana M via email! 
NOTES: The Head, the "Chest Fur", Horns, Legs, and Body are all separate pieces, so there is a bit of room for freedom in the order everything gets built and attached. Everything is numbered, so you can just follow those for the most part - Head from the face backward, closing at piece 26 (after the horns are attached). Body from the front back, closing at piece 44. From there, the legs attach via a sort of double sided fur - pieces 34, 38, 49 and 53 are all pieces that the legs glue to, and then glue into the body where the legs have fur pointed downward around an opening. Each piece of 34/38/49/53 should match parts of  28/29/41/42 respectively to fit together. After the legs are attached and glued to the body via the fur, feel free to use scissors to 'feather' the fur as well, cut small lines to make it a bit more hair like.

GROOKEY



810 / GROOKEY - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Grookey
Type: Grass
Species: Chimp Pokémon
Height: 0.3 m (1′00″)
Weight: 5.0 kg (11.0 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Grookey has two, leaf-shaped hair tufts that hold a stick on the top of its head. Besides using it when attacking, Grookey beats this stick rhythmically against the surfaces of all sorts of objects. This has been observed to cause grass to grow, and wilted flowers and leaves seem to regain their color when Grookey drums nearby. The stick used to be a branch from a forest where troops of Grookey lived, and it has a special power due to being exposed to the energy within Grookey's body.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 13.9 cm / 5.5 in
Width: 11.7 cm / 4.6 in
Depth: 13.5 cm / 5.3 in
Pages: 4
Pieces: 53
Level: Easy-Medium
Designer: Brandon
Photo: Build by CrafterWong - the Chibi Grookey pictured can be found right here as well!
NOTES: This would be just outright easy if it weren't for those pesky hands and feet. Build the model from the head down. Make sure to attach the ears, nose and head leaf before closing the head. The only possible confusion is when you build piece 17. For part of it, you will need to glue the colored side to the tab - the line where it folds over on itself is colored in red. Once done with the head, build the body starting from the tail/back feet and closing it at the neck with piece 52. You will need to use tweezers or a toothpick in order to apply pressure to the fingers. In order for the model to stand I put two pennies inside the back feet to act as counter weight. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building!

GALARIAN PONYTA


77 / PONYTA - Galarian - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Galarian Ponyta
Type: Psychic
Species: Unique Horn Pokémon
Height: 0.8 m (3′03″)
Weight: 24.0 kg (52.9 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Galarian Ponyta can absorb the life energy located in the atmosphere and store it in its mane, which will then become more colorful and potentially release a shining glow if there is a lot of energy to use. The small horn contains a healing power. Ponyta can heal any slight wounds with a few rubs from its horn. By looking into the eyes of a person, it can read the contents of the heart. Should Ponyta find any evil, it will promptly go back into hiding.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 17.0 cm / 6.7 in
Width: 11.1 cm / 4.4 in
Depth: 23.2 cm / 9.1 in
Pages: 9
Pieces: 84
Level: Medium-Hard 
Designer: Brandon
Photo: Feel free to submit your own at our email and we'll display the best/most creative!
Featured Photo from: Eve R. via email!
NOTES: Fluffy to paper is a weird transition, and definitely makes this one a bit tougher for it. Follow the numbers, building the head downward, working in the legs as you go. You will want to weight the right side of the body for sure (opposite the direction the mane flows), as well as probably attach it to a base for good measure. Probably a good time to reference our quite old Paperpokés Pokémon Bases pack as it could come in handy here. Per how the numbers indicate, you'll want to attach the tail to the body before fully closing the body. The mane can be attached to the body after closed, by gluing to the head and the side of the body to try and fully attach it. The mane is also numbered in a tricky way, as the closing point is near the bottom but the tufts have to be attached first - attach 75-78 onto 74 before layering and closing with 79.

FENNEKIN


653 / FENNEKIN - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Fennekin
Type: Fire
Species: Fox Pokémon
Height: 0.4 m (1′04″)
Weight: 9.4 kg (20.7 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Hot air is vented from Fennekin's ears, reaching temperatures of over 390 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius). It uses this ability to intimidate opponents. Fennekin chews on twigs, which fill it with energy. It can be temperamental, but it tries to do its best for its Trainer.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 17.0 cm / 6.7 in
Width: 10.6 cm / 4.2 in
Depth: 14.1 cm / 5.6 in
Pages: 6
Pieces: 79
Level: Medium
Designer: Brandon
Photo: Feel free to submit your own at our email and we'll display the best/most creative!
Featured Photo from: Ilana M via email! 
NOTES: This one is a little bit tougher since its more rounded overall, but the modular-ness of it should help some. The head, tail, and body are all self enclosed pieces, with jutting cones to connect them all with. The head and tail cones should go into the pieces, whereas both body pieces that they rest on go outward to serve as a sort of bobblehead like connection. The pieces are numbered to start with the top of the head, work in the ears, and close at the bottom of the head. The body is meant to work from front to back, attaching legs as you go. Last but not least, the tail builds from outer tip to the base of it, closing with the triangle that plops onto the body
