    Default Papercraft Pokemon Models

    To those who don't know: Papercrafts are made from printed out pieces of paper (obviously) which then are cut, scored, folded, and glued together to make 3-dimensional models. Gundam used to have big, very accurate model kits so that fans could make their favorite mecha, but all Pokemon has ever really gotten are the TFG and assorted figurines of varying quality.
    If you don't mind the fact that they're made of paper, there's a number of websites that have very good models of Pokemon that are very accurate and are sometimes quite large, too. Plus anybody who (like me) principally buys the TCG for the figurines should try their hand at papercrafting. (For one, it's a lot cheaper...)

    Paperpokes - Paperpokés - Pokémon Papercrafts
    The largest site dedicated to the subject that I know of. Their models are arranged by generation, and although the lists aren't as up-to-date as they should be there is a search function on the homepage to look up specific models. They come out with a new model every week. In addition to the standard Pokemon, they also do models from My Pokemon Ranch (Chibis), Trainers, and assorted other things from the games (like the Ghost of Lavender Tower)
    Examples of work from their site:
    Zekrom (this week's new model):

    Flygon:

    Rayquaza (Shiny!):

    Absol:

    Torterra, version 2 (newer):

    Luxray:


    The next site is in Japanese, so if you don't read it it may be a little hard to navigate; I suppose you can just use Google's translate function, though it tends to be somewhat literal. - Tenpepakura てんのペパクラ
    This site's models are much simpler, and tend to be a little blocky in design, but they're less frustrating to build and have their own charm. This host of this site also really loves Eevees.
    And speaking of which:

    Here's Grovyle, specifically the Gear-Thieving one from Mystery Dungeon:

    A seated Snivy:

    The 'Substitute' doll (so cute!):


    Lastly there's Sabi96 Papercraft Box - Sabi96 Papercraft Box
    This site features many models of Pokemon and other characters from assorted platforms. There are a number of Pokemon models on this site (including many from Gen V) which I haven't found anywhere else.
    Serperior:

    Arceus:

    Dwebble:

    And, my favorite Pokemon, Dewott:


    (The second one hasn't been released yet .)

    All the artists who design these models are AMAZING, and I wish I was half as spacial as they are so that I could design my own, too.

    I found a Lucario model on PaperKraft.net

    He's from Melee, but he still looks sweet.

    On the same page, I found a link to this:

    I am so building this today.


    EDIT: 5/14
    Paperpokes' new model this week is Ponyta. The test build is shiny, too.
