November 2015 Update: We’ve made several new origami Pokemon posts featuring a ton of new Pokemon not in this post. We have a series of 4 posts each linked below so you can check them out.
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.
You can find the original image here, along with a couple more pictures from different angles and a crease pattern.

You can find the original image here along with a crease pattern and some other photos.
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.
I think it’s a really awesome idea to use an origami kusudama to make a Staryu. You can see the original image here.
It’s really just another kusudama but the colours that are used are what makes this work so well. You can find the original image here.
This Zapdos is absolutely perfect. You can find the original image here.
You can find the original image plus a few more here.
I’ve seen a couple of different paper Mewtwos on the Internet but this one is definitely the best. You can find the original image along with a few more here.
They’ve gone and folded a bunch of Unown including an R, W, K, G, Y, P and Z. You can find the original image here.

#492 Shaymin Land Form
This is definitely one of the cuter origami Pokemon models I’ve seen. You can find the original image here.
#492 Shaymin Sky Form
Another expertly designed origami Pokemon model. You can find the original image here.
Definitely the best one of the Black and White starter Pokemon. You can find the original image along with a crease pattern here.

There’s also a post on the Origami Forum about origami Pokemon. You’ll find images of more 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 a paper Dialga, Palkia and some other stuff.
Here’s an image of his 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 paper Pokemon share the links in the comments.
