Name: Empoleon
Type: Water/Steel
Species: Emperor Pokémon
Height: 1.7 m (5′07″)
Weight: 84.5 kg (186.3 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Empoleon is a large penguin-like Pokémon. In terms of color, it has a closer resemblance to a "real-world" penguin than its pre-evolved forms have because it is mostly black or navy blue as opposed to being a light blue. Its feet actually appear to have webbing on them. Its wings are tipped with blue metal and have three golden claws sticking out at the bottom. It has a short, blue, metal "fin" sticking out of its back and another "fin" that's on the front of its body that extends to where its chin would be then splits to form a sort of collar. This "collar" is probably because real penguins are said to be wearing "tuxedos," due to their black and white appearance. If one looks at Empoleon, it has a tie like fin in the middle of its belly, and the collar coming off it, this relates to the "tuxedo" of a penguin.

Great work you guys this is my third favorite Pokemon and (I know I'm very much late to the party since this model was released years ago) I'm going to start on it soon but I just finished printing and I noticed a slight error in the PDFs. Piece #30 has the number 30 overlapping onto the piece itself. It's a very small error and I'm going to build the model as is anyways but just thought I'd bring that to your attention so you can decide if you'll update the file at your leisure.
