Name: Darmanitan 
Type: Fire
Species:  Blazing Pokémon
Height: 1.3 m (4'03″)
Weight: 92.9 kg (204.8 lbs.)
Interesting Facts: Darmanitan is a mainly red, squat ape-like Pokémon. It has long, bushy flame eyebrows that curl at the base, and round, black-ringed eyes. The upper portion of its tan face is separated from the lower portion by a diagonal red stripe, and its large mouth sports spiked teeth. All these facial features give the impression of a manic or angered expression. Its head has no discernible neck to distinguish it from the rest of the body and its rounded back, which culminates in a stubby tail. It has long arms with spiky hair fringes on the wrists and large tan hands, with a similar arrangement for its hind limbs. Additionally, Darmanitan has three tan ovals on its underside. In its normal state, it is immensely strong physically; a single punch can destroy a dump truck.

NOTES: When printing, page 3 will print on the back side of page 2 to "double side" the fire for the eyebrows. It is fine to skip page 3 altogether, but then the backs of the eyebrows will be white of course. Build the face starting from the eyes and building to piece 18 and 19. Next build the mouth, 20-23 are the inner piece, whereas 16-17 connect with 13 (above) and 18 (below) to form the visible face. Next line up both the outer teeth (16, 17) and inner teeth (23, 22) and glue them back to back so that the mouth fits seamlessly with the face. Continue building downward attaching the arms and legs as you go but do not attach the hand and feet. The bottom side of the feet and hands (the slightly convex cone where the hands and feet attach) both have notes as to how they line up to each appendage, as well. Before closing the model attach the eyebrows (I find it best if you only glue the yellow part in the desired position than gluing or just stuffing the other eyebrow parts into each other without glue) and attach the hand and arms so that the model balances and stand up correctly. In theory you can close the model at either the legs (as numbered) or with the lower body (piece 45), whichever you'd rather.

I had not visited PaperPokes for a long time, when I came back I found many wonderful pokes had been created and posted while I was away.
I have a sore finger from all of the clicking to download the files, and am looking forward to a lot of happy building.
And yes, I miss Paperbuff very much.
