FLOATZEL


419 / FLOATZEL - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Floatzel
Type: Water
Species: Sea Weasel Pokémon
Height: 1.1 m (3′07″)
Weight: 33.5 kg (73.9 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Floatzel appears to be based on an otter or weasel, with two pointed blue fins on its arms and two tails, as with its pre-evolution, Buizel. The yellow flotation device it had as a Buizel appears to have grown and now functions as a boat. It gives the impression of a swimmer with a towel draped around its shoulders. If Floatzel laid on its back, the structure round its neck could also be interpreted as a sort of inflatable dinghy using its tails much like its pre-evolution, as a propeller and its fins as oars. The small fins on Buizel's forelimbs have grown into fully-fledged fins that are used for Razor Wind attacks. Its forelimbs and tails are tipped with cream coloration, and there is a teardrop-shaped orange pattern voided in Floatzel’s cream lower belly. Floatzel also has a circular cream spot in the center of its head, cream-colored eyelids and a pattern of two black triangles on the edges of its cream muzzle, unlike Buizel.

No comments yet for Floatzel? :(

I like its design a lot, and you guys (well, Brandon) did a great job getting it in 3D paper form!

P.S. Are you planning on doing more papercraft of Pokemon moves? Like a Substitute Doll, etc.
