POKÉ BALL Papercrafts
Name: Poké Ball
Interesting Facts: A Poké Ball is a type of item critical in any Trainer's quest. It is used for capturing and storing wild Pokémon. There are four different basic levels of Poké Ball, and over a dozen variations on the Poké Ball design throughout the games. A Poké Ball's strength is determined by how much it raises a wild Pokémon's catch-rate. Many Poké Balls' strengths change based on certain conditions. Poké Ball may also limits the strength of the Pokémon inside it.

Please be warned, these models are NOT for the faint-hearted at all. Despite the simplicity of the patterns, these Poké Balls can be very difficult and frustrating to close properly - as is the case with any papercraft sphere.
The new templates do have more pieces than the original unfold, but they are laid out in a constructional order, and may provide readers with a slightly easier build. Of course, you can still choose to use THI's original Poké Balls, which are also included in the download packs.
Also, the button is heavier than any other part, so before you close up, secure a penny/weight onto the center-spot of the bottom half of the Pokéball. And we recommend that you always refer to the .PDO whilst building.
