Pokemon Origami

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the Pokemon videogames and there just so happens to be some incredibly awesome Pokemon origami on the Internet.

A few of these models even have crease patterns or videos showing how to fold them.

We’ll start off with some models from a website called Calico’s Origami Aquarium which I think has the best Pokemon origami models that I’ve ever seen.


#016 Pidgey

Origami Pidgey

You can find the original image here, along with a couple more pictures from different angles and a crease pattern.

 

#019 Ratatta

Origami Rattata

You can find the original image here along with the crease pattern and a couple more images from different angles.

 

#032 Nidoran Male

Nidoran

You can find the original image here along with a crease pattern and some other photos.

 

#080 Slowbro

Slowbro

I really like how the shell looks on this origami Slowbro.  You can find the original image here along with some more pictures, one that really shows off that shell and a crease pattern.

 

#120 Staryu

Origami Staryu

I think it’s a really awesome idea to use an origami kusudama to make a Staryu.  You can see the original image here.

 

#121 Starmie

Origami Starmie

It’s really just another origami kusudama but the colours that are used are what makes this work so well.  You can find the original image here.

 

#145 Zapdos

Zapdos

This origami Zapdos is absolutely perfect.  You can find the original image here.

 

#146 Moltres

Origami Moltres

You can find the original image plus a few more here.

 

#150 Mewtwo

Origami Mewtwo

I’ve seen a couple of different origami Mewtwos on the Internet but this one is definitely the best.  You can find the original image along with a few more here.

 

#201 Unown

Origami Unown

They’ve gone and folded a bunch of origami Unown including an R, W, K, G, Y, P and Z.  You can find the original image here.

 

#310 Manectric

Origami Manectric

You can find the original image here.

 

#492 Shaymin Land Form

Origami Shaymin

This is definitely one of the cuter origami Pokemon models I’ve seen.  You can find the original image here.

 

#492 Shaymin Sky Form

Origami Shaymin Sky Form

Another expertly designed origami Pokemon model.  You can find the original image here.

 

#495 Snivy

Origami Snivy

Definitely the best one of the Black and White starter Pokemon.  You can find the original image along with a crease pattern here.

 

#498 Tepig

Origami Tepig

You can find the original image plus a crease pattern here.

There’s also a post on the Origami Forum about origami Pokemon.  You’ll find images of more origami Pokemon, some crease patterns and more information.

It’s also worth checking out the YouTube channel of a user named Axojisan.  You’ll find some videos showing you how to fold an origami Dialga, Palkia and some other stuff.

Here’s an image of his origami Dialga (Pokedex entry #483) folded by myself.  It’s actually not that hard to fold and it looks great.

If you know of some good origami Pokemon share the links in the comments.

 

Update: June 12, 2014

Calico’s Origami Aquarium has posted an amazing Fennekin design with a crease pattern here.

There’s also an Ambipom, Jirachi and Arceus that weren’t there when I first made this blog post and they are great.

      Unfortunately there aren't any diagrams for any of these models, just a couple of crease patterns. There is that video showing how to fold the Dialga though.

      The guy who did that Dialga video does have a couple of diagrams for some other Pokemon I didn't show here. You can find those here: http://www.ultimateorigami.net/origami-diagrams/origami-videogame-diagrams

      There's a crease pattern for the Tepig here: http://calicoorigami.web.fc2.com/main/pokemon_pokabu.html

      Unfortunately there aren't any diagrams for it anywhere. If you need help with the crease pattern someone on the origami forum might be able to help. Here's a link to the forum: http://snkhan.co.uk/forum/

      Unfortunately there aren't any instructions anywhere on the Internet for that Shaymin which really sucks since that model is awesome.

      There's a video slideshow showing how to fold the Dialga. It's what I used to fold mine. Unfortunately there aren't diagrams for Snivy, Oshawott and Tepig anywhere that I know of.

    These are absolutely beautiful! I've never worked with a crease pattern before, I still consider myself a novice at origami (I started this year) but I really want to give them a go because they're just the most wonderful pokemon origami I've seen! I'll let you know how it turns out (horribly I'm sure but you've gotta start somewhere!)

    I will do it in a better paper if you like it....and if i can with a colorchange this is some kraft aire 24gr/m2 it is a great and thin but not so pretty paper (it's the best for crimp)...
