011 / METAPOD - Pokémon Papercraft
Type: Bug
Species: Cocoon Pokémon
Height: 0.6 m (2'04")
Weight: 9.9 kg (21.8 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Metapod generally remain motionless and is unable to do anything other than harden its outer shell. It bears more resemblance to a chrysalis - its soft body is protected by a hard outer shell while it undergoes a metamorphosis from it's first evolution to it's third. While this shell is said to be as hard as steel, a large sudden impact could cause its vulnerable body to pop out, leaving it completely exposed. Metapod is tied with Kakuna, Silcoon, and Cascoon as the weakest evolved Pokémon in the games, by average base stats. It evolves from Caterpie starting at level 7, and it evolves into Butterfree starting at level 10.

Height: 14.0 cm/5.5 in

No. of Pages: 3
No. of Pieces: 30
Level: Easy
Designer: POdragon

NOTES: Whist this is a relatively easy model to build, it is crucial that special care is taken to ensure that the valley folds are made. For this reason, the template has been split into more parts than actually necessary (for those attempting to build the lineless version, or for those that own a Mac). Follow the numbers on the pieces.

Is there anyway to resize this papercraft so that it's life size?

Any tips on making the tail? for some reason a peice was made too big and the peice it had to connect to was too small, any tips on that?


@ Zach

I'm not sure what piece you are talking about. If you could send me a screencap of the section you're having issues with, perhaps we can help you.
