Chibi Moltres

 




Commentary:
Out of all the birds, in my opinion, this one is the worst. When I first played through Pokemon FireRed I caught all the birds thinking this would make the elite four easier to complete. I had planned to use Moltres for some of Lorelei's and Bruno's Pokemon as I could use the super effective moves Fire Blast (yes, as a kid it was all about damage) to knock out some of Lorelei's ice types and fly to knock out Bruno's fighting types. It took me many tries to defeat the elite four. And none of the previous ideas mentioned above worked. Moltres never lived more than two turns against either the Lorelei, Dewgong, Cloyster, or Lapras as they all used some water move, each Pokemon had, and its Fire Blast never was able to take any of these Pokemon in one-shot. Bruno's Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee were easily one shotted by Moltres's Fly, but Machamp was bulky enough to take two flys and thus able to kill Moltres with either rockslide or cross chop (I do not remember). So yeah, in my opinion Moltres was quite useless when I used it. All the other members on the team played a large role in beating elite four for the first time, but that is a story for another day.

Pokedex Entry:
According to the pokedex, with every flap of its wings, Moltres creates a dazzling flare of flames that turns the night sky red. Furthermore, the appearance of Moltres represents the coming of spring. Alrighty these two makes sense a legendary Pokemon that signals the change in season as well as having a mystical characteristic. This next entry states that if it gets injured, it dips its body in molten rock to heal itself. This explains why Moltres is where it is when you capture it in Pokemon FireRed. I'm just going to assume magic on how it can heal Moltres because how does lava have the ability to heal a flying bird? I could understand if this were Regirock or something like that.  

Model Details:
Pages: 1
Height: 3.30 in / 8.38 cm
Width: 3.35 in / 8.51 cm
Depth: 4.89 in / 12.42 cm
Notes: This model is not too difficult to build. Build the head and body separately and them to each other when they are both done. Use the flame on its tail to create a tripod with the legs to get the model to stand by itself. Besides that, I hope you enjoy building and stay tuned!
