PIKACHU-COLORED and SPIKY-EARED PICHU

172 / SPIKY-EARED PICHU - Pokémon Papercraft
Name:
Pichu
Type: Electric
Species: Tiny Mouse Pokémon
Height: 0.3 m (1′00″)
Weight: 2.0 kg (4.0 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Spiky-eared Pichu (also known as Notched-ear Pichu) is obtainable in HeartGold/SoulSilver only if you go to the Ilex Forest Shrine whith the special Pikachu-colored Pichu in your team. It'll jump from behind the shrine and join you at level 30, female, with the moves Volt Tackle, Helping Hand, Swagger and Pain Split. If taken to Professor Elm, it is revealed that she has travelled through time with Celebi. He adds that the reason it cannot evolve is because she has been time travelling for so long. He will then call all the Pokémon Center attendants to prevent Spiky-Eared Pichu from being used in trades.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 15 cm/5.9 in
Width: 18,7 cm/ 7.4 in
Depth: 11 cm/4.3 in
No. of Pages: 3
No. of Pieces: 27
Level: Medium
Designer: Brandon/Lyrin
Photo: Lyrin
NOTES: The model isn't difficult to build overall. The only challenging parts are the arms and the tiny thumbs. I suggest you to use tweezers for holding the thumbs tabs while they glue. As usual, follow the numbers on the template, and use the .pdo as reference (recommended). The ear-spike is optional: you'll have to build the left ear first, then assemble the spike, fold its tabs inside it, and then glue it on top of the ear. I've included shiny textures even if Spiky-eared Pichu hasn't a shiny version ingame. I did so in case someone wanted to build a simple shiny Pichu (leaving out the ear-spike).

Name:
Pichu
Type: Electric
Species: Tiny Mouse Pokémon
Height: 0.3 m (1′00″)
Weight: 2.0 kg (4.0 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Pikachu-colored Pichu is a shiny Pichu that has been given to players who pre-ordered tickets for the 12th Pokémon movie in Japan. It is a male in a Cherish Ball, it's at level 30 while holding an Everstone and a Classic Ribbon. It also knows the moves Charge, Volt Tackle, Endure and Endeavor. In North America it was available for download in GameStop from January 30th to February 14th (D/P/Pt). It is now available to download via wi-fi connection in Europe, America, and Australia (until 26th March). If you go to the Ilex Forest Shrine with him in your party (HeartGold/SoulSilver), you'll be able to get a special Pichu. Which one? COME BACK THIS FRIDAY to download it!

Justin said...

Max van Veen said...

eh guys, its a nice picu but ive been go to the gamestore(by the way,i come from holland) and that guy said that there is a foul in the game;you cant save so the you cant buy the game. don't worry its only in europe so you can play the game without problems.

Lyrin said...

I've heard of the problem, but it seems that it only affects Dutch copies of the game. Really, dunno why.
I can tell you that my copy of SoulSilver works fine, and it saves without problems!
Hope the problem will be fixed in Holland too!

I didn't mean anything with my comment! It's just that Chikorita and Gardevoir look like female pokémon for me. Not Pichu, ^^. However, when I saw the printed pouches, she did look more like a she, ^^!
I only started building her, and didn't have time to finish, but she's at least all scored... I'll probably do so in the weekend!

looks like you have a problem with your extensions.

can't really help you with it, you'll have to google it, but try right-clicking the file and selecting "Open file with..." and then selecting either Pepakura Viewer or Acrobat Reader depending on the file.

QUESTION: WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE TO BUILD A NORMAL ONE OF THE PIKA-COLOUR PICHU BUT PUT THE EAR SPIKE ON IT???

I MUST KNOW BEFORE I PRINT THE PAGES.

Brandon said...

Yup, that is entirely possible. The spike just fits over the end of the ear, so the textures don't affect that at all.
