Chibi Sandile

 






Commentary:
I used this and its evolution Krokodile in a Pokemon Black playthrough, but I do not remember anything specific about using this Pokemon in game. The only cool thing I remember about Sandile is Ash's Sandile in the anime had sunglasses. Besides that I like the concept of this Pokemon and the design looks pretty cool.

Pokedex Entry:
According to the Pokedex, Sandile lives buried in the sand to prevent their body temperature from dropping. It can have its eyes and nose peaking out of the sand due to a dark membrane protecting its eyes from the sun. Furthermore, Sandile has powerful legs allowing Sandile to push threw the sand as if it was swimming. The entry makes sense scientifically and logistically. Sandile also has a pretty funny pokedex entry stating that it hunts by concealing itself in sand and chomping down on prey that walks over it and that its favorite snack is a Trapinch. Well.....nature I guess and secondly I do not want to ever walk in a desert in the Pokemon World to protect myself from getting my leg bitten off. I am pretty sure this is the first time I have seen an example of Pokemon eating other Pokemon in an entry.

Model Details:
Pages:1
Height: 1.07 in / 2.72 cm
Width: 1.13 in / 2.87 cm
Depth: 2.69 in / 6.83
Notes: This model is quite straightforward and easy build. I recommend folding the lines around the eyes if you are building lineless to get a cleaner look and you will need to add a weight, I used a coin, in the body of the model so the model can stand up by itself. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!

Chibi Zygarde Complete Forme

 





Commentary:
So how does this make sense. Zygarde evolves from a dog to a snake and to a transformer. No not the one that steps up or steps down voltage (For those electrical engineers), but the one that would be called up by Optimus Prime after changing from a car to a killing robot. I never watched Digimon, but the Zygarde evolution line makes me think on how Digimon evolves as my only exposure is the meme where they show how natural Pokemon evolution and how odd Digimon evolutions are. So yeah I do not get how this evolution line works but okay. Besides that I never really used this Pokemon Showdown or in the main game so I call I can say is insult the weird evolution Zygarde undergoes to turn in a transformer.




Pokedex Entry:
So I concluded that Zygarde 50% Forme was basically an aggressive Lorax. Well this Pokemon seems to be the same but on steroids. According to the Pokedex, Zygarde has enough power to overwhelm Xerneas and Yvetal (I assume it is much much stronger than both). Furthermore, Zygarde 100% Forme uses these powers to neutralize those who endangers the ecosystem. What does Pokemon mean by neutralize? I am going to assume that Pokemon did not want to say off with so they used neutralize instead. So yeah.... Zygarde 100% Forme is the Lorax who has God-Like power that is not afraid to eliminate anyone in order to protect the ecosystem. Yeah I do not want to be caught littering if this Pokemon is around.

Model Details:
Pages: 5
Height: 4.50 in / 11.43 cm
Width: 6.31 in /  16.03 cm
Depth: 4.41 in / 11.20 cm
Notes: This Pokemon is alright to build, refer to the PDO for help. When building the model, first build the body. Attaching the piece with the smile to the main circle and then attach the back part to the main circle making sure to free hand glue the arms to the front part. Then build the lower body but do not close the model. Next, build the head and its headpieces and attach it to the body. Build and attach the mouth piece to the head and then glue the front triangles to the body. Finally, build all the cape-like parts and then use them to get the model to stand by itself by angling them any way you want. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!

Chibi Wartortle

 




Commentary:
I do not remember much about this Pokemon. I used it multiple times in FireRed, but for some reason I do not remember much about it. This may be because when Squirtle was a Wartotle, Lt.Surge and Erika were the two main gym leaders and I am not using a water type against those two leader. I do remember making the bigger version of this model when I was younger but it was messy as I used tape instead of glue. I am pretty sure I threw it away awhile ago, but it was one of the first bigger papercrafts I did in grade school

Now that I have made Wartortle, you can build all three Pokemon in the Squirte line in Pokemon Rumble Form. 



Pokedex Entry:
According to the Pokedex, Wartortle's furry tail is the sign of longevity and Wartortle can live up to 10,000 years. One can tell the age of a Wartortle by seeing how deep the color its tail is (I have no idea what that means) and the amount of algae on its shell. Furthermore, Wartortle uses its ears and tail to help maintain balance once it swims. Ok, my question is how does Wartortle live about twice as long as the oldest known tree (which is named the Great Basin Bristlcone Pine if anyone wants to look it up) and what does it do its entire life. I imagine it going to get bored after a good portion of its life as it will just run out of things to do. Also, how did scientists figure this out because the first human record only goes back 5000 years so there is no way that people could perform at test on it (Probably carbon tested a live Wartotle now that I am thinking about it. Wait that means one Wartotle could have watched the entire evolution of humans and technology😮. Woah. 

Model Detail:
Pages: 1
Height: 2.30 in / 5.84 cm
Width: 2.05 in /  5.21 cm
Depth: 2.38 in / 6.05 cm
Notes: This model is not too difficult to build. Build the body from the feet upward and build the head downwards attaching the ears before closing the head. Attach the two together once each one is completed. Finally, to get the model to stand, adjust the angle of the tail and glue it on once you are happy with the look. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!

Chibi Zygarde 50% Forme

 




Commentary:
So how does a dog🐕 turn into a snake🐍. I know other Pokemon make a huge jump between species during evolution but I do not get it with this one🤷‍♂️. If you read the 10% commentary you know that I was unable to use that one properly in Pokemon Showdown. Surprisingly it is the opposite with this Pokemon. Whenever I get a Zygarde 50% forme in random battles, I usually do pretty well using it. I will occasionally sweep teams, if I set up one or two Dragon Dances, but normally it will knock out one or two Pokemon before it faints itself. It is properly due the 50% forme having a little more defense in exchange for speed, but hey I prefer using the 50% forme over the 10% forme. Besides that I never have used this Pokemon in any other game. The only other knowledge I have of Zygarde is when there was a rumor of a Pokemon Z coming out after X and Y.

Pokedex Entry:
Interesting. All of Zygarde's entries are consistent. According to Pokedex, when 50% of the core forms gather(hence the name of this Pokemon....duh) it wipes out those who oppose it. Furthermore, it monitors the ecosystem. So this Pokemon is the Lorax if the Lorax was more aggressive and was a snake and was a legendary Pokemon and is green. Yeah I do not know where I was going with this, but now all I can think of Zygarde being a more forceful Lorax.

Model Details:
Pages: 2
Height: 3.30 in / 8.38 cm
Width: 3.33 in / 8.46 cm
Depth: 3.15 in / 8.00 cm
Notes: This model is somewhat difficult. When building the head there is one tab that connects the head spikes to the head. You can either open the PDO to find out how to connect them or you can just free hand glue the head spike to the head. The mouth/teeth part of the head can will free hand glued to the bottom of the head. Build the body from the neck down closing at the bottom of the tail. Before closing the model, place a small weight, like a coin, inside the model to get it to stand up properly. After balancing the model, attach the back and side pieces (which can be built by folding the piece on itself and trimming extra white that sticks out or you can just use the tabs, I did the former). Finish by attaching the tail spikes and attaching the head to the body. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!

Basic Glue Gunner

 




Commentary:
This monkey slows down balloons, that is all it does. Later upgrades make this tower pretty useful as it can actually do damage and slow M.O.A.B class balloons, but until then this monkey is pretty useless. Personally, this tower is not my cup and tea and you will only catch me using the 0-2-1 Glue Gunner in the early game. Besides that I stay far away from this tower.

Entry:
It shoots slobs of gluing slowing down the balloons to 50%. So it basically slows down balloons and that is about it.

Model Details:
Pages: 2 or 4
Height: 2.89 in / 7.34 cm   or  5.00 in / 12.70 cm
Width: 1.54 in /  3.91 cm   or  2.67 in / 6.78 cm
Depth: 2.44 in / 6.20 cm    or  4.22 in / 10.72 cm
Notes: For this model I have included different sizes. The bigger size is the easier the model is to build of the two. If you have built any of my Bloons Tower Defense models before, it is very similar to how to build those. If you have not, here the basic instructions. First build the head. For this model in specific you will need to trim the ears so they are not as large, and I have provided the option to make the eyebrows 2D or 3D. Use the PDO to help build the arms and attach it to the body when you get there. Finish building the body, but DO NOT glue the legs yet. Next build the hose and glue bucket and attach it to the body. Sorry but there was no connect piece between the hose and the bucket so...yeah. Next build the legs and tail. When building the legs, you can free hand glue the feet to the leg. As long as the the leg is in the general region of the feet it is fine. Lastly, to get the model to stand free hand glue the tail and legs (to the general area where they are suppose to be glued to but do not have to be glue directly to the tabs assigned to) to a location in which the model can stand by itself. An viola the model is done. Besides that, I hope you enjoy buiding and stay tuned!

Chibi Zygarde 10% Forme

 




Commentary:
I have used this Pokemon many times in Showdown, but..... I never seemed to get it to work. Rather whenever my opponents gets it, they always manage to sweep me. Whenever I use it, I would set up a  dragon dance and then in like two turns get burned or paralyzed or OHKOed. Even with its ability to transform to its 100% forme after hitting a certain HP level, this Pokemon somehow still gets knocked out too easily. Odds on me using this Pokemon wrong is pretty high, but after using this Pokemon many times it never has come good for me.

Pokedex Entry:
According to the Pokedex entry,  whenever 10% of Zygarde cells are collected it turns into this forme and can run as fast as 60 mph as wells posses quality closed range combat by using attacks such as leaping into its opponents chest and sinking its fang into them. The funny part of this Pokemon is according to Pokemon Sun's after a period of time this Pokemon falls apart. Huh! What?! I am assuming that it will break apart into its core form again, but how long is this period of time and why does is fall apart. Can the core decided when to break apart? I do not know I just found this part quite surprising.

Model Details:
Pages: 1
Height: 2.50 in / 6.35 cm
Width: 1.56 in / 3.96 cm 
Depth: 2.70 in / 6.86 cm
Notes: This model is not too difficult to build. The only thing I would suggest is to put a coin or a small weight in the body to allow the model to stand by itself. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!

Chibi Galarian Darmuaka

 




Commentary:
This Pokemon looks like if Darmuaka would naturally evolve due to its surround. I mean I know that is the purpose of Galarian Pokemon, but I like the design of this Pokemon. Also, the design made it easy for me to make so that too.

Recently I helped Paperpokes make a bigger version of Galarian Darmuaka. You can check out the model at: http://www.pokemonpapercraft.net/2021/05/galarian-darumaka.html?m=1

Pokedex Entry: 
According to the Pokedex, Galarian Darmuaka lived in snowy areas for so long that its fire sac cooled off and now it has an organ that generates cold instead. So evolution turned Darmuaka from an oven to a refrigerator over time. Kinda of funny, but also the natural evolution makes sense. In order to live in frigid temperatures, Darmuaka had to adapt and have different organs. My only question is how long did this evolution to the different climate take. Was it like in real life where it takes millions of years for this change to occur? Or is Pokemon special and it took only a few years because a special gene was activated? The other Pokedex entry for Galarian Darmuaka says that they freeze their breath into snowballs and use the them in snowballs fights. I kinda of funny this was included and now I can see just groups of Galarian Darmuaka having a huge snowball fight with each other.

Notes:
Pages: 1
Height: 1.75 in / 4.45 cm 
Width: 2.02 in / 5.13 cm
Depth: 1.93 in / 4.90 cm
Notes: Build the model from the top down closing the model with the legs and make sure to attach the eyebrows and gems before closing the model.. This model is quite simple to build. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!

Chibi Zygarde Core Forme

 




Commentary: 
I did not know this Pokemon existed. I just thought that there were only 3 Zygarde forms, but apparently, there is this form (which I like to call baby Zygarde) and a cell form. Also, I thought the core form would have a shiny form, but nope it doesn't. I may be wrong and if I am please let me know in the comments. Therefore, I found a color complex I liked for a shiny version and used that as the textures for a "shiny" version. Besides that, this section is going to be pretty bare.

Pokedex Entry:
I do not think this SPECIFIC Zygarde form has a special Pokedex Entry, so I am just going to state some interesting facts about the Zygarde Core form. Zygarde Core Form is a part of Zygarde's mind. Apparently there are two different kinds of Zygarde, one with a blue hexagon and one with a red hexagon, and they communicate to each other through telepathy. Funny enough these two have names in the anime as the red is called squishy (the more emotional side of the brain) and the blue one is called Z-2 (the more logical and technical side of the brain. It sounds like one was named by a kid and the other was named by scientist. Anyways, lastly, this Pokemon get their energy through photosynthesis. Hmmm so like Rowlet who can photosynthesize.

Model Details:
Pages: 1
Height: 1.70 in / 4.32 cm
Width: 0.94 in / 2.39 cm
Depth: 0.97 in / 2.46 cm
Notes: This model is not too difficult to build. Build the head and body separately. Put a small weight inside the body to allow the model to stand by itself. Besides, that I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!
