A paper version of the famous Pokemon!
I designed this a year or so ago while being bored in Geometry class. Be warned, it's not for the beginner! You should at least be able to fold a frog base (preferably from memory) before attempting this model.

I love this! It looks way to complicated for me to do though, I'll see if my boyfriend can make me one, his origami skills are better than mine

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!! I LOVE MEW!!!! I INSTANTLY RECOGNIZED HIM! Its so cute!

I always wondered HOW people just MADE UP an entirely new creature with origami. Are you just fooling around and it ended up making something, or do you actually set out to do a certain thing?

Well, I'm sure it's not too easy to explain, but no matter what, I have -no- idea how to get from the picture at step 6 to the one at step 7.
Maybe you could name the sides or just add left-right-descriptions....
