PIKACHU v2



025 / PIKACHU - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Pikachu
Type: Electric
Species: Mouse Pokémon
Height: 0.4 m (1'04")
Weight: 6.0 kg (13.2 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: A Pikachu is a short, chubby, ground-dwelling rodent notable for its Electric abilities. Pikachu have short, yellow fur with brown stripes on the back, red cheeks that can produce small jolts of electricity, a mouth that looks like a sideways three, black-tipped ears, along with an unusually shaped tail, resembling a lightning bolt. Besides its evolution and pre-evolution, it may be related to Plusle, Minun, Pachirisu, and Emonga due to notable physical similarities. Pikachu are known to have acute senses of hearing, thanks to their large ears. Most domestic Pikachu are able to understand and interpret human speech at levels far surpassing those of any pet dog.

THE PAPER MODEL
Height: 18.1 cm/7.1 in
Width: 15.2 cm/ 5.9 in
Depth: 16.1 cm/6.3 in
Pages: 5 (pikachu) + 1 (scarf)
Pieces: 43 (male)/45 (female) + 1 (scarf)
Level: Medium
Designer: Brandon/Lyrin - Scarf: PMF
Photo: Lyrin
NOTES: The model isn't difficult, the only tricky parts are the fingers. First thing, start with the thumb and create the five pyramids that compose the fingers. Once you've done it, making the rest of the hand will be really simple. Anyway, refer to the pdo for building them: it'll be even simpler (I've also coloured the finger-parts that need to be glued together with the same colour). As for the rest, follow the numbers on the template and you'll be fine. Once you reach the tail, choose if you want a female or a male Pikachu, and only print the corresponding page. And if you want to build the scarf, there's a close-up picture in the download pack that shows how the knot is done (and also the fingers, so you can use that picture for further reference). Please note that you can use normal printer paper to print out the scarf (it'll be simpler to wrap around pika's neck, in fact), and that there's no need to glue it: it's completely unwrappable and removable. There are also a blue and a red scarf texture in the pack, in case you want to customize your Pikachu (you'll have to change the texture settings in pepakura viewer to use them).

Brandon said...

If you search Pikachu in "Enter Keywords:" the first version will be at the bottom, along with a couple of dolls, Raichu, Pichu, Plusle/Minun.

I have to build Pikachu!! ITS A MUST!!!

Victoria said...

the files of all the new Pokemon versions don't work on my computer :( I have no clue why, can anyone help?

Brandon said...

Have you been using Winrar to extract the rars? The only real difference I can think of is that one might be a zip file, and the other is a rar (which requires a different program than winzip).

Panda said...

I know you guys have a ton of different versions of pikachu already, and I don't wanna sound like every ungrateful person that makes requests..I've seen other versions out there that don't compare to your quality of design..but might I suggest a SuperSmashBrosBrawl version of Pikachu that would size well with the Trainer Red model? Like Squirtle, Ivysaur and Charizard?

Nice Pikachu! I like how the arms are positioned to hold a piece of paper.
I'm making this pikachu now but how do the feet work? Is the whole body just suppose to sit on top of the 2 feet or are they suppose to be connected to the body?

I'm using this model to ask my boyfriend to winter formal. He'll be wearing the blue scarf and holding a sign that says "Winter formal?" in elegant letters with a blue snowflake. I hope he likes it!
