Chibi Chandelure

 




Commentary: A chandelier who does a lot of damage but dies to an attack. Seems fitting for a chandelier (provides a lot of use by providing light but if it falls have a fun time cleaning up all the glass). This Pokemon reminds of Lumiere with three different flames in a similar layout to Lumiere🕯 but with just a bigger head. Anyways, this Pokemon in my opinion is very cool as it did a lot of damage and unlike its stereotype, it was able to live a couple of hits before dying (for me, I do not know maybe I had unforeseen defense EVs 🤷‍♂️). Shauntel's Chandelure in Black did not do too much damage or harm to my team I just remember that it missed all its fire blast but got all the special defense drops when using shadow ball so I guess it evens out

Pokedex Entries
All the pokedex entries besides Sword and Shield say something along the line that if you touch its flame, your soul gets burn up and your spirit walks aimlessly forever. Well then... do not be touching its flames. For Sword and Shield it says that if Chandelure illuminates a house instead of a of natural light, funerals occur often. I must admit in game this Pokemon is quite cool, but if this Pokemon existed in real life I am staying far away from it. It to spooky👻.

Collaboration:
As our final part of our Halloween collaboration, I helped Paperpokes build a normal and bigger sprite of Chandelure. If you want to go build the bigger model like the model shown below, go visit:

 
 
Model Details:
Pages: 1
Height: 3.00 in / 7.62 cm
Width: 2.91 in / 7.39 cm
Depth: 1.42 in / 3.61 cm
Notes: As you can see the model only requires one base, but if you want to build all three supports, I have included the other supports. You do not have to build the other bases if you angle the arms correctly. For this model, build the body and arms separately and attach them once done. Getting the model to stay it one placing the arms on is quite difficult so have fun finding different sized things to rest the model on. I hope you enjoy building the model and stay tune!

Chibi Alakazam

 




Commentary: If you read the Kadabra commentary, you learned that I always wanted to use Alakazam in a runthrough, but I never had another D.S or Gameboy to do so. The reason I wanted to use this Pokemon because I saw how much damage it could do when watching Marriland run through Pokemon Diamond on YouTube, I do not know if his playthrough is still on YouTube but this was ages ago. My desire to use an Alakazam increased when I played through SoulSilver and I got swept by Sabrina's Alakazam. All of Sabrina's Pokemon were easy to K.O but once she brought out Alakazam it was over. She had Alakazam set up three or four calm minds and it just bodied my team with psychic. The next time, I played SoulSilver I caught an Abra on route 34 and asked my friend to trade with me to get an Alakazam. I was a little dissapointed with it because eventhough it could really hard it died instantly to most attacks, tell me about a glass cannon🔭🙄. I still used it throughout the run and enjoyed using it, but it makes sense why people run a choice scarf on this Pokemon competitively.

Weird Pokedex Entries:
So according to the Pokedex, this Pokemon is a supercomputer with over 5000 IQ. I guess the boy who turned into Kadabra, who enjoyed tinkering with mechanics (my opinion established in Kadabra's entry) found a way to upgrade his brain to become the smartest being of all time. If Alakazams are smarter than all of us why have they not taken of the Pokemon world yet?
 
Model Details:
Pages: 1
Height: 2.90 in / 7.37 cm
Width: 1.90 in / 4.83 cm
Depth: 1.59 in / 4.04 cm
Notes:  I had problems getting the model to stand by itself not building this model. The rest of the notes are advice on how to get the model to stand. My suggestion is to build the head and body (that includes the attaching the spoon) separately. Do not attach the closing piece (piece with no tabs) when building the body. When everything is built, attach the closing piece but do not glue one of tabs on. Then attach the head. What you are going to do next is to invert part of the feet (picture shown below). The reason you have not glued the last tab on the body yet is to uninvert the feet if you feel like you inverted too much, and the feet are not on the same plan. Take your time to get the model to stand by itself, it took me awhile myself on this part. I hope you enjoy the model and stay tune!😃

Chibi Lampent

 




Commentary: Reminder these are my opinions for this Pokemon, so BRUH, I hated using this Pokemon in my first Black run. I was really hoping to use Chandulure during the elite four, but I after googling where to find a dusk stone I was quite distraught I would find a dusk stone until after the elite four. This thing was basically a free switch for another Pokemon as it did little to no damage to any Pokemon or it got out sped and died instantly. So yeah... I think you get the idea that I am not that big of a fan of this Pokemon.

Weird Pokedex Entries:
The Pokedex entries for all games Lampent is in are all constant. All the entries say something along the line of if you see this Pokemon someone is about to die and it will absorbs the energy of the person who has died into its flame.
Basically, this Pokemon absorbs the soul of a dead person. I mean it took my soul after realizing how useless it was 🤪(Intense sarcasm).

Part of our Halloween collaboration, I helped out Paperpokes make a normal sprite of Lampent. You can go download the other model at http://www.pokemonpapercraft.net/2020/10/lampent.html  



Model Details:
Pages: 1
Height: 2.50 in / 6.35 cm
Width: 3.08 in / 7.82 cm
Depth: 2.90 in / 7.37 cm
Notes: When building this model build each section (the hat, the face and the body) separately and then attach them together. When attaching the arms to the body, you have two options. One option is to cut slits in the body on the black line, the location for these cuts are shown in the picture below, and then you can glue the arms inside the slits. The other option is you can ignore these lines and cut off the tabs of the arms and bend a little bit of the black arm back and attach them to the location you want. If you glue the arms in the right location you do not have to build the stand for the model. I hope you enjoy building and stay tune.

Chibi Kadabra




Commentary: I always wanted to use an Alakazam when I played through FireRed. I knew that I never wanted to use Hypno and I had used Mr. Mime on multiple runs (I actually liked using Mr. Mime during these playthroughs). I did not know that you needed to trade Kadabra to evolve to get Alakazam, so let's just say I leveled up Kadabra to really high level before I learn about the trade restrictions 😅. My friend eventually told me about this and that he had extra Gameboys and a link cable... and let's just say this did not go well either. We spent probably an hour trying to learn how to trade between Gameboys just to learn that the link cable was broken, so there went my chance was using an Alakazam in a run. To be honest, unlike many other middle evolution Kadabra was actually usable (in my opinion) and I enjoyed using it while playing through FireRed

Weird Pokedex Entries: 
(Yellow and Let's Go Pikachu) - Many odd things happen if this Pokemon is close by. For example, it makes clocks run backwards.
(Diamond) - If one is nearby, an eerie shadow appears on TV screens. Seeing the shadow is said to bring bad luck.
(FireRed, Emerald and Sun) -It happened one morning a boy with extrasensory powers awoke in bed transformed into Kadabra.

So, I assume that Kadabra does not control time like Dialga or Celebi, but rather it control the gears and/or buttons of clocks. And why only around clocks why not any other mechanical machines🤷‍♂️. I mean the Pokemon does funky things around TV's and screens. Based on the Pokedex entries over the years, I think that Kadabra still possesses the boy's childish nature and possible interest in mechanics and just expresses these interest and characteristic by pulling pranks on humans through mechanical machines.

Model Details:
Pages: 1
Height: 2.25 in / 5.71 cm
Width: 1.65 in / 4.19 cm
Depth: 2.62 in / 6.65 cm
Notes: This model is straightforward to build. The model can stand by itself. Use the tail to create a tripod with the two legs. Besides that I hope you enjoy building and stay tune!

Chibi Litwick

 

3D Model

Templates

Commentary: Before I start my commentary, go check out http://www.pokemonpapercraft.net/2020/10/litwick-happy-halloween-part-1.html. They are a great website and build high quality Pokemon papercraft. I have recently helped them build a Litwick. You can find the templates at the website above.

Well time to talk about Litwick. This Pokemon is so cute and quite useable for a few battles once you catch it and is okay against the ice type gym leader Brycen. This Pokemon was on my original run through Pokemon Black and it did an okay job. Evolving at level 41, this Pokemon seemed to become less and less usable until it finally evolved into Chandulure, do not worry I will talk about my opinion about Lampent later. Besides the case, I just felt it did not do enough damage as by level 40 it knew flame burst, which did little to no damage, inferno, which K.O.ed everything it hit but it only hit 50 percent of the time if not less, will-o-wisp, which was actually useful against physical sweepers, and Hex, which like flame burst did very little damage. So overall, its useable during the main story was okay, but 10/10 for the design and cuteness. I do not understand why people hate generation 5 Pokemon designs I though they will pretty cool. Let me know in the comments your opinion about Pokemon designs from Generation 5?

Model Details:
Pages: 1
Height: 2.25 in / 5.72 cm
Width: 1.33 in / 3.38 cm 
Depth: 1.31 in / 3.33 cm
Notes: Build the model from the top down. When attaching the head piece to the body is does not seem to fit at first. Trust me it does fit you just need force it in a little bit. After you attach the head piece to the body, attach the flame to the head before closing the body with the bottom piece. Besides that, enjoy building, comment any questions you may have and stay tuned!

Chibi Abra

 




Commentary: 
            I do not really have any funny stories to tell for this Pokemon while encounting this Pokemon in a game. I am pretty sure most people who have tried to catch an Abra have ran into the annoying problem of it teleporting away if it broke out of its Pokeball. Furthermore, I am pretty sure everyone has run into the problem of having to switch train this Pokemon prior to obtaining the exp. share. 

 Funny thing is when trying to come up with something to talk about in this section of this post, I wanted to talk about its height because I knew that Alakazam was a short Pokemon. Without thinking, I typed in "Abra height" into the Google search bar assuming the only thing that would pop up was the Pokemon Abra's height. Instead, the height of a Filipino hip-hop artist named Abra appeared. I did not expect that and was like well at least I have a story now😁.

 When typing in Pokemon Abra height into Google, I got Abra's height and saw that the Pokemon stood at two foot eleven inches (88.9 centimeters). To be honest that seemed like a proper size for a Pokemon Abra if it were to live in the real world. This is unlike the rest of the Abra line as Kadabra and Alakazam seems a little short for what I imagined as they stand at four foot three inches (129 centimeters) and four foot eleven inches (150 centimeters) respectable.


Model Details:
Pages: 1
Height: 2.00 in / 5.08 cm
Width: 1.41 in / 3.58 cm
Depth: 2.00 in / 5.08 cm
Notes: The model is pretty easy to build just angle the tail in a way so the model can stand up by itself. Besides that enjoy building and stay tuned.

Basic Ninja Monkey

 



Commentary: I realized I had posted Pokemon papercrafts for close to two months straight without posting a different genre. Nothing wrong with that I have a lot in store for Pokemon papercrafts this month... so make sure to stay tuned. But anyways... back to the normal content. The ninja monkey is by far my favorite monkey in bloons tower defense. If you upgrade this monkey properly it can pop any bloons. You need an early game monkey, buy a ninja monkey. You need a late game monkey, buy a ninja monkey. You need camo lead popping power, upgrade your ninja monkey. You need MOAB popping power, upgrade your ninja monkey. You need to distract bloons, upgrade your ninja monkey. You need camo popping power do not even worry you do not even have to upgrade your ninja monkey. You get the point the ninja monkey is the swiss army knife for monkeys in Bloons Tower Defense and that is why it is my favorite monkey.

Model Details: 
Pages: 1
Height: 2.73 in / 6.93 cm
Width: 1.89 in / 4.80 cm
Depth: 2.35 in / 5.97 cm
Notes: The model is just like any other Bloons Tower Defense monkey here. The specific advice I would give would be to trim the eyes to get them to fit into the eyes slot. Also, when building the shuriken, I just cut the templates in order to cut out the middle circle. I then just put one side of the shuriken on top of the other one and did not use the tabs to connect both sides. I cut the tabs off all together. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building, if you have questions leave them in the comments below, and stay tune for more content this month!
