30 Absol-utely Astonishing Origami Pokemon Because You Asked Furret

With the recent release of Pokemon Sun and Moon I think it’s time for another origami Pokemon post.

Since our last round of Pokemon posts I’ve found a bunch more awesome looking paper Pokemon that deserve to be featured.

We’ll star off this post with an awesome Gengar design by sakuryu(╯3╰).
