POKÉ BALL BOX


POKÉ BALL

Interesting Facts: The Poké Ball (モンスターボール, Monsutābōru?, Monster Ball in original Japanese language versions) is a spherical device used by Pokémon Trainers to capture wild Pokémon and store them when not active. The balls convert a Pokémon into energy upon contact, suck it inside, and close automatically. Stronger Pokémon are able to struggle and possibly break free, while those that have been weakened are easily captured. The Poké Ball, not in use, is the size of a golf ball and with the press of the central button, enlarges to the size of an orange. The Pokémon is released for battle by throwing the ball, and when retrieving a Pokémon, a beam of red colored light will convert the Pokémon into energy and retrieve it. (from the Gameplay of Pokémon Wiki)

THE POKÉ BALL BOX
Height: 10 cm/4 in, 15 cm/6 in, 20 cm/8 in, 25 cm/10 in
No. of Pages: 4, 9, 13, 27
No. of Pieces: 33, 34, 47, 70
Level: Medium
Designer: PMF
Builder: Paperbuff
NOTES: Follow the numbers on the pieces for the suggested building order. Since the poké ball is designed as a box, I very highly recommend using card stock even at the smallest size. Because once built, you won't be able to resist opening and closing, and opening and closing... =P

Also included in the download pack is the Premium Poké Ball.

Download: A4 / Letter

AWESOME! IVE BEEN WANTING A POKEBALL TO STORE ALL MY POKES :P

Kaylie said...

Wow! I really want to make these but I've tried downloading them twice and each time they save to my computer but then I cant open them and access the instructions.

I just downloaded the newest Adobe last week, can anyone help?

PAPERPOKES said...

I don't know what the problem might be - I had no problem downloading it and opening the file myself. But I have had a similar issue with a Japanese site. The solution there was to download it using an alternate browser (ie: firefox <-> IE).

However, if your problem is simply about opening the .zip file, then I would suggest perhaps using an alternate archiving program, such as 7Zip http://download.cnet.com/7-Zip/3000-2250_4-10045185.html

Also, make sure that you have accociated the .pdo files with Pepakura Viewer if they appear as a generic file:
>Right click on .pdo file
>open with
>browse programs
>tamasoft
>pepakura viewer
>OK

All the strips like the black strip around the pokeball are really short. it doesnt make a complete circle around the ball to center!

Harrison said...

PAPERPOKES said...

10 cm/4 in,
15 cm/6 in,
20 cm/8 in, and
25 cm/10 in

Did you ever release the lil Pikachu template? It's so cute! It's not in the miniature Pokemon and cake section =o

PAPERPOKES said...

You can find it in the Pokémon Doll section: http://www.pokemonpapercraft.com/2009/04/pokedolls-team-6-surf-pikachu-unown.html

All u have to do is click on A4 then press save and save it on ur pc. SO SIMPLE!:P

Anonymous said...

K so

It's weird because I print out the papes and the strips and stuff. like the red and black ones, even the outher pokeball (Red) won't go all the way around it. ending up a couple inches short. Did I do something wrong? What happened?

P.S. I'm making the 15 cm one

Matt said...

Hey

I try to make them,but it doesn't work. The stips don't reach all the way around and it makes it impossable to do. Could you redesighn them, or is it something I'm doing? I'm frustrated. Thanks if you can help.

Brandon said...

So Do These Fit Your Paper Pokemon Inside Them??? Or What Can These Fit In Them? Cause I Wanna Make A Pokeball To Fit My Paper Pokemon In Them :)

PAPERPOKES said...

nope, the models don't fit in the ball. in fact, the ball is pretty much as big as our usual models. :/

leafeon4ever! said...

i need help plz!!! ive tried making the first pokeball and the white bit doesnt fit inside!! i dunno where ive gone wrong... so can i hav some advice / help??? last comment i tried to post but it never turned up :'(

PMF said...

Alot of people are having trouble making that white bit and also keep in mind that it's not an easy model.

Best advice I can give you is to look carefully at the PDO in Pepakura Viewer and take a look at the picture in the post.

Beside that, you can always send a picture to our email and we'll see if we can see where the problem is.

Will all of the small poke dolls fit in these and if so, which size ball fits them best; I'm going to give these as gifts with the Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbasaur doll so I want them to look as good as I can.

Anonymous said...

is there any chance of textures for the great/ ultra balls for these, cos their awesome, and i want to have a pokeball in a great ball in an ultra ball, purely for the sake of it.

Anonymous said...

anon said...

I'm confused on how to place numbers 19-14 together on a 10cm line model. It just wont fit ><. please help quickly :/ it would be appreciated alot

mallo said...

Have you think of making potions?

Gonna get me my babushka ball!

Anonymous said...

I'm having difficulty closing it. Can anyone help?

Anonymous said...

may i ask a question?
if i want to do this piece, do you think using modelling card works?

Brandon said...

It probably would, worth a try. To my knowledge it hasn't been done before, but that doesn't mean it's not possible.

Anonymous said...

I've been trying for like an hour, but I can't open this papercraft in pepakura viewer. Can anyone help me? I've done this with other papercrafts before and I've tried both A4 and Letter, and it still doesn't work. No luck.

Brandon said...

You're using winrar or winzip to extract the zip file first, right? Because the pdo is inside the file provided, it's not directly the file provided.

Anonymous said...

what about the inside? What can I do to make it look good?

Anonymous said...

If Pokemon models were resized (for example, shrunk down to about a height of 3-4 in.)
to fit in the Pokeball, would the Pokemon models themselves still be able to be made
(what with the cutting and folding involved)?

To resize a model without photo-shop, would page setup options have to be changed
at the time of printing?

Thank you in advance.

Anonymous said...

The strips 1-2 don't go all the way around the ball, is it something I'm doing wrong or does the template need a redesign? Please answer!

frenchdavid50 said...

Is there a size big enough to fit nearly all models inside but is still reasonably sized? I want to fit my Metagross, Absol, Espeon, Latios, Reuniclus (when it comes out), and Gallade into balls for realism. I will probably put a peice of tape on the inside so they don't completely open, and instead open like they do in the anime.

Anonymous said...

What do I do with strips 1 & 2? I don't know what they are used for.

Anonymous said...

I can't find the link to the Pokeball
And when i downloaded a copy, I couldn't open the files

Asif Wani said...

Including a lineless pdo would've been a big help, please do if you can.

Thankyou

What kind of paper should I use to make this? Because I'll open and close it a lot, and I don't want to ruin my pokeball box.

Anonymous said...

Tan Sheng Yew said...

When I tried to download it, it stopped halfway and when i opened it. It comes out unexpected end of archive. How to fix it. Can I request any Kind Samarithan to send me the 15cm, 20cm and 30cm pdf files and pdo to me at tanshengyew@yahoo.com?

Brandon said...

I just checked the download, and had no issues- worth trying again, should work now.
