788 / TAPU FINI - Pokémon Papercraft
Name: Tapu Fini
Type: Water/Fairy
Species: Land Spirit Pokémon
Height: 1.3 m (4′03″)
Weight: 21.2 kg (46.7 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: As the guardian of Poni Island, Tapu Fini can freely manipulate water and gains energy from ocean currents. To avoid harm to itself in battle, it shrouds its surroundings in a mysterious fog that sends its opponents into a self-destructive trance. The guardian also unleashes this fog as a test for those who seek the special water it can create, which is said to purify anything it touches. Many humans have attempted this trial, including those with ill intent; disgusted by this history, Tapu Fini does not care much for humans. Despite this, it is willing to help those who prove themselves worthy.

NOTES: All of the Tapus are a bit tough, and this one is no exception. If you can get past the spindly hands/arms and the large shell, it's not too awful overall though. Following the numbers, start from the top of the hair and work your way down. Close the hair at the bottom, top with the 'crest' and then continue onto the body. Work from the head down with the body, closing at the bottom of the legless base (this part will attach to the shell later). The head just pushes onto the body via the triangular piece up top. Move onto the arms and shoulders. The flat pieces (39-43,54-58) are the fingernails (purple) and handwebbing (black gray). For the nails, just fold and glue them over on each other (doublesided) and glue to the ends of each of the fingers. For the webbing, fold them over (without gluing) and glue the ends of each to the area at the base between each set of fingers. Images included in download packs to help here too. From here, the shells and bases are the only things left - close the shells at the flat ends (as indicated) on the outside, and close the bases at the bottom.

ooh tapu fini is my favorite tapu! it’s so pretty. i figured out how to download on mobile, the zip files work as soon as you download them, but for rar files you have to get a zip extractor app or something and then you can print it from there.

could you try doing more eeveelution chibis? the normal ones are a bit tough, glaceon especially!

keep up the great work! hope to see more amazing models!

Is there any chance of you bringing a Flabebé or Galarian Ponyta? I'd be very excited to build them! 😁
