Chibi Decidueye



Commentary:
I just looked at all the Generation 7 starters and man they all look pretty cool. I have never used any of these starters in any games but I give Nintendo a 10/10 for starter designed. For Decidueye. the only knowledge of this Pokemon is that there was a small time span in the TCG where the Decideuye from Darkness Ablaze was decent, but that it is all I know. Besides that, this Pokemon looks like the bird version of Robin Hood (Not the stock app, very convenient for the time but the historically myth person. Just look him up if you never heard of him).

Pokedex Entry:
According to all but one Pokedex entry, Decideuye has top class aim when using a bow and arrow🏹, further confirming my opinion of it being like a Robin Hood figure. Decidueye is so good with a bow and arrow that in a tenth of a second⌚ it can nock an arrow and fire and hit a pebble from over a hundred yards away. A human blink takes 0.4 seconds and this Pokemon takes 0.1 seconds to load and fire so in the time you blink Decideuye has already shot four times and most likely hit its target😨 scary. The only Pokedex entry that does not talk about its archery skills mentions that this Pokemon is normally pretty calm and collected but if it is surprised it goes into panic. I guess the only counter to this Pokemon and obviously its type weaknesses and surprise parties.

Model Details:
Pages: 2
Height: 3.00 in / 7.62 cm
Width: 1.52 in / 3.86 cm
Depth: 1.64 in / 4.17 cm
Notes: The model can stand by itself because of it tail. The difficult part to build is the head. When building the head, build the head spikes in the front first and attach the inside of the spikes immediately afterward. Build the head backwards but do not attach the piece with not tabs that would close the head. Instead, glue the face to the head. You will need to free hand glue it on but I used a toothpick to reach through the opening to mess with the angle of the face. When you are happy with the angle of the face, close the model with the piece mentioned above. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!😁

Chibi Thundurus




Commentary: 
The only thing I remember about this Pokemon is when I played Pokemon White and I went the route near the flying type gym leader (Route 7, I had to google this) it just rained liked crazy. I thought this was a cool feature of catching this Pokemon and I wished this occurred more often, but with roaming Pokemon (I think there is this feature for a roaming Pokemon but I do not remember who). That is all my experience with this Pokemon. In my opinion, I like the Therian version of all the Gennie Pokemon better than their normal forms. Their normal form reminds me of the meme of can I copy your homework picture but you just change it a little bit. Each genie are literally the same but just have a different tail, head piece and color pallet. 

Pokedex Entry:
Well I think this Pokemon is an evil version. According to all its Pokedex entries, this Pokemon flies around the Unova region shooting lightning bolts from its tail causing forest fires. Thundurus is therefore generally disliked. Thundurus just seems like a bored Zeus just going around causing fires for its entertainment.

Model Details:
Pages: 3
Height: 3.40 in 
Width: 2.61 in
Depth: 2.88 in
Notes: When building the head piece start with the tip and build toward the larger part as it is easier to close with the larger piece. For the tail you will need to freehand attaching the balls to the sticks (hehehe😅). Alternating building the two pieces and attach them to general tail as you go. Once the tail is complete you will need to bend it a little bit to create the curve shape. I glued the tail in two place, the back of the body and the front of the cloud. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!

Chibi Magnemite

 



Commentary:
I have used Magnemite many times in a playthrough and, in my opinion, it was pretty good defensively and okay attacking wise. I really like using it in nuzlockes, but hate facing them early on due to one move...sonicboom. I enjoy playing randomized Pokemon nuzlockes and you never know when or if you will face one of these before the first and arguably the second gym leader. If you do, you better hope you have a fire, fightning, or ground move on the active Pokemon because its sonicboom will most likely two shot every Pokemon you have making switching unlikely and the necessity for you to sacrifice a Pokemon. Let us just say I lost a lot of randomized nuzlocke to this Pokemon. The only other memory of this Pokemon is seeing a swarm of them in the Pokemon movie Arceus and the Jewel of Life and being amazed of how many there were. 

Pokedex Entry:
In general, most Pokedex entries of this Pokemon state that this Pokemon defies gravity allowing it float, feeds on electricity thus found near power plants or electrical lines, and acts like a magnet and can attract iron🔗 300 feet away, that's a lot of paperclips 🤪 (I assume this is something the Pokemon can turn on or off or else Magnemite would have a lot of junk surrounding it). I assume that this Pokemon acts as a battery🔋 and a magnet🧲 at the same time because one of its entries says that if you see a Magnetmite on the ground, to give it a battery so it can start moving again. I assume that it has ran out of electricity thus needs a boost.

Model Details:
Pages: 2
Height: 1.50 in / 3.81 cm
Width: 2.74 in / 6.96 cm
Depth: 1.31 in / 3.33 cm
Notes: This Pokemon quite simple and if you are new to papercrafting I would recommend building this Pokemon. In order to get the model to stand, play with the angle and location of the magnets and nails. Lastly, if you are feeling lazy, you can make the magnets two-dimensional by just placing the two magnets piece on top of each others white sides leaving the color sides showing. Besides that I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!

Chibi Tsareena

 




Commentary:
Let me be honest😅. I had no idea who this Pokemon was. When someone requested me to make it, I had to Google the name to refresh my memory of who this Pokemon was.... so sorry if I offended anyone by that. I have not used this Pokemon in any game whether it is a mainline story games, TCG, or Showdown, so I do not have any stories with this Pokemon. The only comments I have regarding this Pokemon is that it is giving up vibes like Gardevoir, Lopunny, or Delphox and I would want to look up any fan art regarding this Pokemon. If you get what I am putting down🃏.

Pokedex Entry:
Dang this Pokemon is a savage. In general, this Pokemon is known to attack with its legs. Tsareena laughs with every kick on the opponent, and after victory, Tsareena shows off by kicking the opponent laughing in the process. This kind of reminds of the Simpsons meme of where someone is already beaten up and someone yells, "Stop! Stop! He is already dead," but Tsareena is the bully. The worst part of this Pokemon is that a kick from its leg's harden tips will cause wounds that will never heal....uh scary. And the one of the Pokdex Entries state that this Pokemon appears as a mascot in advertisements for beauty Salon. Well, this confirms by opinion of it giving a similar vibe to Gardevoir, Lopunny, or Delphox.

Model Details:
Pages: 2
Height: 2.40 in / 6.10 cm
Depth: 1.59 in / 4.04 cm 
Width: 2.59 in / 6.58 cm
Notes: Building the head is quite straightforward. When you build the flower that connects to the body and the face, the glue the top of the flower directly on top of the bottom flower (Do not use the tab). Then trim the black parts off leaving just the flower. For the body, I would recommend building from the legs upward as I built it downwards and it was quite difficult. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tune!

Chibi Mewtwo

 




Commentary: 
The great Mewtwo. When I was playing FireRed, I remember first arriving in Cerulean City and wondering how to get to that cave in the top left corner of the screen. It did not take me long to realize that the only way to reach the cave was to use surf, so immediately after I got surf, I returned to the cave and again distraught on what the person in front of the cave had to say. In essence, the NPC said you are too weak come back later when you may be ready 🤪(The NPC just said to go and beat the elite four and then you could enter). I assume you can guess what I did immediately after beating the elite four. When I returned, I had like level 48 to 52 Pokemon. Nothing special but not awful. I remember spending a couple hours completing the strength puzzle and eventually giving up and just googling it. I finally I reach Mewtwo ready to battle the legendary beast. Based off the levels of the three birds, I assumed that Mewtwo would also be level 50. I was completely dumbfounded when I learned that it was level 70😲. When I first faced it, my team got destroyed. They did not even stand a chance. I really wish I remembered how I caught it but I honestly do not remember. All I remember was sitting there for two to three hours trying to catch until I gave up and just used my masterball. In future games, I waited until I had stronger Pokemon and I was able too easily catch this Pokémon. 

But wait there is more😅

After facing Mewtwo many times in FireRed I knew what the caliber my Pokemon had to be when I faced it later in SoulSilver. I easily navigated the strength puzzle and was ready to face Mewtwo. It was the easiest legendary Pokemon to catch to this day. I mean I still had level 48-52 Pokemon. Instead of having the deadly moves of Psychic to hit hard on Pokemon, Recover to uh duh recover health, Safeguard to prevent you to putting it to sleep and swift so it was always to doing damage, Mewtwo had pyscho cut which is the Walmart version of pyschic, amnesia which raised its special attack and special defense (really boosting that pyscho cut move🤪) and power and guard swap which I have no idea what they do but were useless against me. I am pretty sure they nerfed Mewtwo way to much in the remakes as I was able to easily this Pokemon on the first try in a Pokeball.🥳

Pokedex Entry:
I mean I am pretty sure we all know that Mewtwo was supposed to be a better version of Mew and that it acts quite cold or according to the Pokedex's entry the most savage heart. Therefore, I cannot think of anything funny to comment this Pokemon with, but maybe hopefully this does not happen in real-life as I am pretty sure humans are quite close to succesfully using similar technology to how the scientist used to create Mewtwo

Model Details:
Pages: 2
Height: 3.60 in / 9.14 cm
Width: 2.14 in / 5.44 cm
Depth: 2.84 in / 7.21 cm
Notes: This model is not too difficult to build. The model stands by itself. The only things you may want to do is trim the two ears or the pieces on the top of its head. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!

Chibi Mega Glalie




Commentary:
Yes, I can build mega evolutions now... so I guess you can request them. Besides the point, I never played X and Y, where mega evolution was a thing, and I barely received mega evolutions while playing random battles in Showdown. Therefore, I have do not have any stories regarding this Pokemon or many other mega evolutions. All I have to say is that I am a huge fan of mega evolutions and that most of them look amazing. My funny interpretation of Mega Glalie is that Glalie just grew a jaw line allowing it to eat many Vanillites in one whole bite now.

Pokedex Entries:
Well, I wrote the top before reading the Pokedex entries for this Pokemon and well.... the mega evolution caused Glalie to break its jaw and it is unable to eat. Looks like it is not eating any Vanillites now😅.

Recently, I worked with Paperpokes to build a more detailed version of this Pokemon. You can find the templates at http://www.pokemonpapercraft.net/2021/01/mega-glalie.html

Model Details:
Pages: 3
Height: 2.60 in / 6.60 cm
Width: 2.33 in / 5.92 cm
Depth: 2.64 in / 6.71 cm
Notes: Build the upper part of the head first and then glue the mouth on. The next part is the hardest part of the build. Next, attach one side of the piece, with the blue rock that is suppose to be on the back of the model, and on the white part of the piece draw where you will cut the piece so that the piece connects snuggly with head (Pictured down below). Then, trim the piece you cut out (the one with the blue circle on it) to fit into the square in the back. You will also have to trim the eyes so that they fit into the eye holes. After that attach the spikes. The two blue pieces on the bottom as well as the the bottom two spikes can manipulated to allow the model to stand by itself. If you have any question place them in the comments below and besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!

 
I drew lines on the back of the model to show where
 I would cut, so the pieces would attach seemlessly.

Even though though there were not tabs, I glued the pieces together. If there is a small gap, I would recommend gluing a piece with the same color in the model so it does not look like there is a gap.
