Pokemon Trainer Red




Commentary:
Before I begin go check out DavidA3D he helped make this model possible.

Also, I am going to talk about Red from the main series games not from the origin series. The origin series Red is alright, but I did really like that Red. The only thing I liked about that Red was that he used a Mega Charizard X. The Red from the games,in my opinion, just seems more arrogant and it goes well with him being one of the greatest trainers of all-time. I like that you have climb a snowy mountain in order to battle to emphasize only the best of the best can conquer this mountain and then challenge Red. The only things I sort of do not understand is, depending how long he has been on top of the mountain in which I assume a long time, how did he get the necessary resources for him and his Pokemon survive and how come he became mute (Do not tell me ........... is a language). I remember when I first challenged Red in Soulsilver, I was completely shocked by the levels of his Pokemon. I was expecting level 60s-70s for his Pokemon not mid to high 80s. So, after seeing my Feraligatr level 62 go up against a level 87 Pikachu I immediately soft reset and returned to the Elite Four for some grinding. I do not remember how I beat Red again, but I did. I know quite anti-climactic. I did run a heavily cheated run (with an Action Replay) when playing HeartGold and I do remember used a level 100 Arceus and just one-shotted everything with judgement.  

Red's Pokemon

                                     Charizard      Venusaur     Blastoise



Model Details:
Pages: 2 or 4 or  8
Height: 3.50 in / 8.89 cm -- 6in / 15.24 cm -- 9in / 22.86 cm
Width: 1.43 in / 3.63 cm -- 2.46 in / 6.25 cm -- 3.69in / 9.37 cm
Depth: 1.44 in / 3.66 cm  -- 2.46 in / 6.25 cm -- 3.69in / 9.37 cm
Notes: 

This model comes in different sizes. The bigger the model is, the easier the model is to build. I HIGHLY recommend that you have Pepakura open when you are building as the model is still difficult regardless of the size. In general, for building this model is to start at the hat and work downwards. When you get to the arms and hands build them separately and then attach them to the body. Then, continue building downwards building the legs right on the body. When making the shoes, I put an eraser off the back of a pencil in each one and free hand glued the shoes to the legs so the white parts between the connection (between the shoes and legs) was not showing. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!

Chibi Rufflet





Commentary:
I remember wanting to use a Briavary in game when Pokemon White first came out. Even though, I did eventually get a Briavary I do not remember anything about this Pokemon. I will admit that it looks like a natural pre-evolution to Braviary, but that is all I have to say about it. Oh yeah, I just thought of something. Its shiny version looks ugly. 

If you are interested in building a more detailed version of this mode go check out http://www.pokemonpapercraft.net/2021/06/rufflet.html




Pokedex Entry:
When I was reading through Rowlet's Pokedex entries I was like "Ah this was going to be easy since there are only straight forward entries." The entries make sense for a bird type of Pokemon. Rufflet uses its talon to crush berries with its talon and Rufflet also has a chip on its shoulder as it will stand up to any opponent regardless of its strength. Then suddenly there is a graphic Pokedex entry stating that the strength of its legs of so strong that it can crack the shell of Shellder and pluck out their inside. Holy crap now all I can think about is a Rufflet ruthlessly destroying Shellder's shells and then eating them like a midday snack. 
 
Model Details:
Pages: 1
Height: 2.00 in / 5.08 cm
Width: 1.88 in / 4.78 cm
Depth: 1.73 in / 4.39 cm
Notes: This model is not difficult to build. Just build the head and body separately then attach them together once completed. Just keep in mind that the model will be leaning back a bit as the legs and tail will create a tripod allowing it to stand by itself. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!

Chibi Mega Venusaur







Commentary:
I have to admit Nintendo did a fantastic job with the mega evolutions for the original starters. Mega Venusaur just looks like the natural evolution to Venusaur (Not to mention much cooler as it continues the trend of the tree growing on its back). Furthermore, I know this Pokemon could be an annoying tank on Showdown. If you did not have a bug, flying, or psychic move, it was a pain to take outwith it constantly recovering HP with leech seed, synthesis, or giga drain. Even fire and ice type moves were not too effective as its thick fat ability weakened those attacks. For those reason, despite there probably being better options, whenever I was trying to create a troll stall team, I would try to include this Pokemon. Also, Mega evolution to my one of my favorite starters... can't go wrong. 

    


Pokedex Entry:
According to the pokedex, In order to adjust to the heavier flower on its back, Mega Venusaur has to become stronger. Yeah, makes sense. My only question is how Venusaur instantly becomes stronger when it mega-evolves and then become immediately weaker when it de-evolves. I think either Mega evolution speeds time up so Venusaur to comfortly gain or lose muscle, or the more unethical way is when Venusaur evolves and de-evolves, it is given some sort of drug to beefen and weaken. Unless Pokemon have a special way of quickly editing them biology those are the only two ways I can think of. 

Model Details:
Pages: 3
Height: 2.75 in / 6.99 cm
Width: 4.30 in / 11.00 cm
Depth: 4.48 in / 11.38 cm
Notes: Well, I have made a video you can watch to build this Pokemon, this is the closest to instructions I will make. The only suggestion I have is when building the tree on its back. Build the tree prior to closing the back. Unlike the video just place the trunk and branches of the tree first. Then, attach the bottom green layer to the body and then the green leaves on the smaller branches. Next, attach the pink leaves to the tree. Yeah, for some reason I did the last three steps in reverse making it much harder to build the model, so those are the only changes from the video I would make. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!

Chibi Charizard

 




Commentary:
Before I begin, go check out Guillermomate who help me make this model. I used this Pokemon once in a run-through. You can read the Charmeleon commentary to figure out why. I used this Pokemon in Soulsilver. I had not used one before and I wanted to see if Charizard, in my opinion, was any good. After defeating Johto, I headed to Kanto and took the Charmander Professor Oak offered me. I immediately gave it the exp. share and grinded it up to the same level as all my other Pokemon in my party and went to battle Lt. Surge. Yeah there was a glaring hole in my team. I had Feraligatr and Charizard😅. I do not exactly remember the rest of the team, but I got destroyed Lt. Surge many times. I think the only reason why I beat Lt. Surge was RNG, but yeah... Charizard's first impression wasn't the greatest. I mean after that hiccup, Charizard was alright for the rest of the run.




Pokedex Entry:
According to the Pokedex entries, Charizard's fiery breath can reach extremely high temperatures that it can melt glaciers weighing up to 10,000 tons. I have no idea how hot that has to be🔥, but I assume that it is really hot. Another entry states that when it is furious the flame on its tip turns bluish white. I guess that the Charizardite X just makes Charizard extremely furious to get it to breath blue fire🤪. Besides that the other Pokedex entries states basic facts about Charizard like Charizard can fly at an altitude at of 4600 feet, can accidently cause forest fire (oooookay😅), never turns its fiery breath against a weaker opponent (aw cute🥰), and its flame burns hotter when experiencing harsh battles.

Model Details:
Pages: 2
Height: 3.00 in / 7.62 cm
Width: 3.45 in / 8.76 cm
Depth: 3.19 in / 8.10 cm
Notes: This model is quite straightforward. Build the head and body separately. Make sure to attach the horns and wings prior to closing their respective locations. After building the head and body glue them together. The model can stand by itself. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned😁!

Chibi Charmeleon

 




Commentary:
Even after evolving my Charmander to Charmeleon, I still could not defeat Brock. During my first run through FireRed, I chose Charmander as my starter. No matter what I tried, as a seven year old kid, I did not seem to beat Brock. After failing multiple times against Brock, I finally decided just to grind my Charmander to Charmeleon. I thought I could beat Brock with Charmeleon as it had a super effective move of metal claw, but I continued to fail. I eventually just gave up and restarted my game and chose bulbasaur as my starter. Yeah not the greatest experience with this Pokemon, but that was my brief spell of using a Charmeleon in a Pokemon game.

Pokedex Entry:
According to the pokedex, Charmeleon, is hot-head and excited by nature and only calms down after the battle. It attacks with its sharp claws and when it swings its tail it can raise the temperature to unbearable levels. The entry that is kinda of interesting is when it is excited in battle, it can blow bluish white flames. This was all the way back in the original yellow version. Somewhat explains why Charizard can turn into Mega Charizard X.

Model Details:
Pages: 1
Height: 2.58 in / 6.55 cm
Width: 1.53 in / 3.89 cm
Depth: 2.35 in / 5.97 cm
Notes: This model is not too difficult to build. Just build the head and body separately and them glue them together. The model will stand by itself, so do NOT worry about finding a way to get the model to stand. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned😄!

4-0-0 Bloonjitsu Ninja Monkey

 




Commentary:
This is my favorite upgrade and tower in the game. It is so solid and decently cheap. You can get this tower with some camo lead popping power and bloom popping power and you are set for like round 30 to like 40 or 50ish (I only played on some easy, intermediate and a couple of advanced maps but nothing to difficult) and focus on farming😜. Even though the 0-4 Ninja monkey is arguably better in battles, this upgraded monkey is still quite usable in game. Overall, I like this monkey and is quite usable and a little bit too OP at times.

Description:
Throws 5 Shuriken's at once. How does it do that? It only has two hands. Even if it stacks the ninja stars on top of each why can't it stack more. Maybe it isn't skilled enough. I do not know I am just rambling now.

Model Details:
Pages: 2  or 4
Height: 2.90 in / 7.34 cm or 4.80 in / 14.68 cm
Width: 2.38 in / 6.05 cm or 4.76 in / 12.10 cm
Depth: 1.65 in / 4.19 cm or 3.3 in / 8.38 cm
Notes: For this model I have included two sizes. The bigger model is easier to build than the smaller one. Also, I originally I forgot to make the cape so it is a separate file from the main one. This model is somewhat difficult to build the hardest part is building the head.

First build the bottom part of the head.



Then free hand glue the eyes and red part of the model to the bottom part of the head


Then free hand glue unconnected sides to the side of the head and attach the hat last. Besides that build the body is the same as building any other of my bloons tower defense monkey. If you have not made any other ones, go check them out, but here is the basic idea. Build the body from the top down, and attach the arms as you build down. Then attach the accessories like the waistband, shoulder plates and the ninja star to the body. Then, free hand glue the legs to the body in which the legs just cover the square in which it is suppose to be. The last thing to build is the cape. You can either make it 2D or 3D it is up to you. For 2D, just make the front and back of the cape, glue them together and then trim any of the extra white parts. Anyways, play with the location of the cape in order to allow the model to stand by itself. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!

Chibi Lapras


Commentary:
The only thing I learned about this Pokemon was what Perish Song does. I never really used this Pokemon because the only time I did I used Perish Song. If you do not know what Perish Song does, after three turns of using the move, and you do not switch the Pokemon, all Pokemon who were on the field during the turn the Pokemon uses Perish Song faint. I did not know that, so when the A.I. switched its Pokemon I was extremely confused... and then I saw Lapras faint and was like...welp. I remember after the battle immediately deleting Perish Song for Surf. I think I continued using Lapras during that run, but I do not remember if anything else specific about using Lapras. I do find it funny/cute that there was a kid who bred and released Lapras because the Pokemon was considered going extinct according to the Pokedex.
 
Pokedex Entry:
According to the Pokedex, Lapras has a gentle heart, can understand human speech, and enjoys ferrying Pokemon on its back. Prior to Generation seven, Lapras were almost overhunted to extinction, however, after protective regulation there is now an overabundance of them. That is pretty cool after realizing a population was going extinct, people realized that they needed to change their behavior in order to save this Pokemon.

Model Details:
Pages: 2
Height: 2.85 in / 7.24 cm
Width: 2.54 in / 6.45 cm
Depth: 3.32 in / 8.43 cm
Notes: This model is not to difficult to build. When building the model build the neck, then build the shell and the rest of the body. Close the model with the tail and make sure to a weight in the model to allow it to stand by itself. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!

Chibi Snorlax

 






Commentary:
The first time I played FireRed I remember not knowing how to get past this Pokémon for the story. After somehow completing Lieutenant Surge's gym puzzle (Yes the gym puzzle was much more difficult than the fight itself. May be because I did not know what adjacent as a kid), I went to the right and saw my path was stopped by a Snorlax. I then went left and defeated Erika and Sabrina (Yes I talked to every NPC as a kid and therefore got the freshwater). I realized that I could not go left of Erika because of the Snorlax in the road again. I had no idea what to do next as I could not go past the Marowak in the Lavender tower. I do not know how I got the flute, but I remember being completely lost on how to gain it. I think after running through the region I eventually learned that I needed to beat the team rocket base in Saffron before proceeding to defeat Lavender town. I eventually got the Pokeflute and used it to wake up the Snorlax. Funny enough, I ran away from the first Snorlax and thought that I could reencounter it. After learning from that mistake, I used the PokeFlute on the one near Celadon and caught and used that Snorlax for the rest of the run. 

Pokedex Entry:
We all know Snorlax. All it does is eat and sleep. Yeah that is all its Pokedex Entries are. The Pokedex just provides more information about the eating habits of Snorlax. For example, Snorlax eats around 900 lbs of food per day and does not care if the food is moldy or on the ground. That is insane, 900 lbs of food per day could feed 180-300 humans per day. Furthermore, Snorlax's acid is so strong that even Muk's poison only acts as a spice for Snorlax. Kinda funny imagining Snorlax instead of using tobasco sauce (Hot sauce) it uses a bottle of deadly posion instead.

Model Details
Pages: 2
Height: 3.23 in / 8.20 cm
Width: 2.84 in / 7.21 cm
Depth: 1.69 in / 4.30 cm
Notes: I actually redid the model so it is wider than it looks in the picture. Anyways, this model is very simple to build. Build the head and body separately and then glue them together. You do NOT have to do anything to get the model to stand. It can stand by itself. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!

Chibi Espeon

 






Commentary: 
Before I begin, my printer is just about out of ink so sorry if Espeon looks more like a grey rather than a purple😅. Do not worry the templates ARE a nice rich purple. Back to the content😄.I always seemed to prefer this Pokemon over Umbreon. Eventhough Umbreon is statistically more defensive, it never seemed to be bulky and, in my opinion, had about the same bulkyness compared to Espeon. Furthermore, Espeon seemed to have better attacks compared to Umbreon. Espeon could pack a punch with Psychic, Dazzling Gleam, Shadow Ball or surprisingly Grass Knot. On the other hand, Umbreon had a weak Dark Pulse, a decent Shadow Ball and a non-stab Psychic that did little damage. As a little child who had no respect for non-damaging moves, I think you can figure out why I preferred using an Espeon over an Umbreon. I did use both Pokemon in my first runthough of Black 2, but that is a story for another day

Pokedex Entry:
So Espeon has three different Pokedex Entries. The first entry is pretty cute and makes Espeon seem like a stereotypical dog🐕 (Nothing wrong with that). According to this entry, Espeon is extremely loyal to its trainer and it is said to have developed psychic powers to protect its trainer from harm. The second entry states that it builds up psychic power during the day (has a hard time battling at night) and when it grows tired the orb on its head becomes dull and dark. Ah, so Espeon's orb in like a stamina bar in a sports game and it usually gets recharged during the day. Lastly, Espeon's sensitive skin can sense the change in weather and predict its foe's next move. Okay, I can understand its ability to sense the weather, but how can it predict other Pokemon's move through its skin. I am lost how that works🤷‍♂️. I can not even think of a plausible explanation on how that coud work.

Model Details:
Pages: 1
Height: 2.35 in / 5.97 cm
Widht: 2.70 in / 6.86 cm
Depth: 2.88 in / 7.32 cm
Notes: This model is very easy to build. The only recommendation I have is to put a small weight in the body so the model can stand by itself. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!
