Pokemon Fan Creates Origami Figure of Vaporeon

An artistically talented Pokemon fan creates an impressive origami figure in the likeness of the Water-type evolution for Eevee, Vaporeon.

Pokemon fans are constantly making headlines for their fan art in a wide array of styles, demonstrating just how artistically talented the massive fandom is. This happens to be the case yet again, with one Pokemon fan creating an impressive origami sculpture modeled after Vaporeon.

Around since the first generation of Pokemon, Vaporeon is the Water-type evolution for fan-favorite Eevee, most often when Eevee is given a Water Stone to hold. The Pokemon is one of the more popular Eeveelutions, with Vaporeon becoming the Japanese ambassador for Water Day last year.


The impressive folded paper artistic creation comes from established Pokemon origami artist u/ino87origami. The talented artist and Pokemon fan appears to have included all of the major characteristics that are unique to Vaporeon, including its tail-fin, the ridges along its spine, its neck frill, and its head fins. The distinct blue coloring looks spot on as well, with the only perceivable improvement being if the darker blue accent color present on its head and back in canon was present. Nonetheless, the origami Vaporeon is quite admirable. Many Pokemon fans are agreeing, as the post has garnered hundreds of likes.

The origami figure of Vaporeon certainly required plenty of time and effort, but perhaps not as much as the fan who spent 30 hours creating a highly detailed Vaporeon doll. The fan posted a short minute-long video of their creation process, showing the artwork starting out as a bunch of outlines on material and an articulating skeleton, and then assembled into a realistic version of the Water-type. Though canonically Vaporeon’s skin is smooth, the doll uses cropped blue fur, giving the Pokemon a bit more of a traditional feline appearance.

The Vaporeon origami figure is hardly the first Pokemon origami creation from u/ino87origami, as the artist has posted quite a few different creatures in recent months. One of their other recent artistic endeavors is an origami figure of Steel/Psychic-type Metagross. The folded paper art is every bit as impressive as the one of Vaporeon, with the artist even appearing to use the same paper colors to make both origami figures. Fans have even begun commenting on the posts voicing their desire to see a Paper Mario-style Pokemon game in the same style, which would be intriguing to see.

While Vaporeon is one of the original Eeveelutions, it is only one of eight potential evolved forms. Eevee has not seen a new evolution since the sixth generation’s Sylveon, and fans are hoping for a new type sooner than later. With no word from Game Freak on a new type coming with Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, fans are designing their own Eeveelutions, demonstrating how popular the original Pokemon character still is.
