At first I was simply inspired to build a Pokeball after seeing Joshua Christenson's version of it. One thing led to another, and before the day was over, I had a team of six Pokemon!
About this creation
A Great Ball, almost entirely based off of Joshua's Poke'ball , but with some minor changes.
To increase the playability (and fragility, it turns out) of my Great Ball, I built it to open. I filled in the interior, but it beats the structural mess that used to be there.
The only downfall to its opening ability is that the back is less spherical. If anyone knows how to fix this problem, let me know! :)
The first Pokemon of the team is Charmeleon. Powerful, cocky, and always looking for a fight, a well-trained Charmeleon can be a useful Pokemon to have.
Charmeleon was the first Pokemon of this series to be built, and he is also the most fragile. Luckily he looks like a BA so it matters little.
Front view, the only angle where the little plate clipped onto the back of Charmeleon's head looks good. Totally worth it.
Kingler, the second Pokemon of the team.
Kingler is what you get when a king crab and Brock Lesner have a child: will kill you on an impulse, and tastes delicious dipped in cocktail sauce.
I'm rather pleased with how Kingler turned out, especially his "crown".
Scyther, the only Pokemon known to be an employee at Beni Hana's.
Scyther was by far the most difficult build, and I'm still not 100% satisfied with the end result. Time to get some more lime green...
The head and scythes are passable, but I will probably tweak them further until I'm happy with them.
The legs, on the other hand, I am very proud of.
Jolteon, the electric evolution of Eevee. Quick, agile, and not very cuddly due to its spines.
Standing. This is my favorite build of this set.
Butt shot. Jolteon would do just fine in prison, methinks.
Now if only Lego would make one of those white dishes with jagged edges, Jolteon would be all set.
Rhydon, also the spawn of Brock Lesner. The mother was either a mountain or a rhino, I'm not sure.
This was another tough, not quite satisfactory build. Does anyone have ideas for improvement?
I like to Rhydon motorcycles.
The final Pokemon of the set, Aerodactyl.
I can't really think of anything funny to say about Aerodactyl except that I think Mark Kelso hunted these when he was my age. His other chore was discovering fire.
Due to a lack of purple parts, the wings have been changed to dark blue. I like dark blue better anyway.
Back shot. While not my best Pokemon to date, I'm pretty happy with how Aerodactyl turned out.
And now for the final group shot. Thanks for viewing!
For those older guys that stopped watching cartoons before Pokemon, and for those young ones who are unfamiliar with these strange, so-called "Pokemon" from the long-lost generation 1 (I mean come on, Game Boy Color? Antique!), you have my empathy. Check out this link for more information and reference pictures of these Pokemon.
If you want to make your pokéball more spherical, do what I did and use clip hinges on the exterior instead of plate hinges on the interior. Oh, and don't bother looking for mine online. I still can't figure out how to work this website.
Kingler and Joelton are amazing! Great job! Great ball too! Please take a look at these if you get the time: http://www.mocpages.com/folder.php/140157
These are my two Pokémon Compilations so far. --Deff--

awesome mocs like the charmeleon and the pokeball mocs :D
I had that special yellow Game Boy Colour with pokemon written on the front. I went camping to cornwall and it got ruined in the rain. Now people are selling them for hundreds of pounds (or Dollars or Euros or whatever you want to use) on eBay. Nice Pokemon anyway, but shouldn't Kingler have one big claw and one small?

I don't remember alot of this. I only played the first few games.
sweet! i love pokemon, (at least the games), great job on most of them, some aren't greta, but still good. my fav is Jolteon.
@chopperskull what do you mean "when i was a kid"? i'm 14 and i still play pokemon. that and mario...
Awesome! Aerodactyl is my favorite. I never had a GameBoy Color, but I had an Advance. My friend had Blue, I had Gold. I watched the original cartoon, but I haven't seen all of the episodes (I have some of them on VHS).
This is amazing! Now you just need a trainer, and you're set! I really like Jolteon, IMO your best pokemon yet, but onix (from 2 or 3, whichever) is impressive, too. I never noticed that scyther's legs had the armor stuff on them until I saw this, but afterward, I looked on the game, an sure enough! BTW, please check out my MOC(s). (Sorry, this was kinda long and rambly.)

i dont see how you could fint that younger genarations dont know about G1 i mean i was just born when pokemon first came oout in the UK so i had to wait un till i was about five untill i coud play by that time G2 came out so i fink every one who likes pokemon has to know about whear it all came from in the first place. and that is what a pokemon fan is someone who played all of the games in order G1-G4. thank you
Ingenious work on the Poke-ball thing! I used to be more into Pokemon, but I took on Lego, and now I have a huge binder full of cards. I think I liked Jolteon the most, the electricity effect with the spikes was really clever!
Now this is what I like to see! Great old school presentation, where to begin: Lovely great ball, I kind of want to build my own Pokéball now. Nice sphere shape and hinges. You got a rad team goin on, Kingler is definitely my favorite. Excellent legs and body on that crustacean. Aerodactyl and Scyther look really good too. Hoping to see more PokéMOCs from you!
Amazing, Jolteon is most definately my favourite (the build and the actual pokemon :P), but all of these are very good and I'm glad you didn't include any of these "modern" pokemon. LONG LIVE THE ORIGINAL 150! xD
dude that is INSANE!!! One suggestion though, the rydon looks slightly too thin...I think that adding another 2x3plate to it's back would be good if you have one. I'd love to see more of these, and now you have me wanting to make some of my own...hmmmm, i wonder...
Excellent. Jolteon was by far the best one. I could easily tell which each pokemon was, meaning great building on such a small scale. I might have to attempt some other ones if you don't mind. Possibly take on the original 150 in a group? -Sam
For the record, I STILL play pokemon! I remember playing red version on my gameboy pocket (now that is ancient!). I still have both and they still work too. Look at this! You've got me going all nostalgic :) Awesome work on these! Aerodactyl looks great! As for rhydon, I'd say plump him up a bit. He looks a bit thin.
Awesome job. You should try and make the original 150 Pokemon. =) THEY were awesome...

To catch them is my real test,
To train them is my cause.
