Since its inception, the Pokemon franchise has brought players to a number of different regions. One of the more memorable of these places, the Sinnoh region, was introduced in the fourth generation of games.Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl players will likely recall interesting locations such as Oreburgh City, Mt. Coronet, and Veilstone City. In an impressive tribute to these games, one player made a papercraft version of Sinnoh's largest city: Jubilife City.
Jubilife City is encountered early in a player's journey through Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl and will likely return in the remakes Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. This city is home to a number of memorable buildings, such as the TV Station, the Trainers' School, and the Global Trade Station.
Papercraft is a unique art form in which paper or cards are designed and used to create 2D or 3D structures, which Reddit user pokecreation used for a design of Jubilife City. It's a masterful tribute to one of the more memorable locations in Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl. Each building looks just as they do in the original games, and pokecreation measured out the area perfectly. The characters that make Jubilife City their home are all there and add life to the papercraft creation. In order to create such a large city, the creator must have dedicated a huge amount of time to the designs, printing, and assembling of the city.
Papercraft as an art form can be a challenge. This is especially true when it comes to matching the design of a well-known game. Noting that, however, pokecreation's 3D Jubilife City meets that tall task brilliantly. And this is just one example of pokecreation taking a place from the Pokemon universe and bringing it to life. They have done a number of locations from the Pokemon universe in this style but Jubilife City is one of the more impressive ones.
Creations such as this show how strong the Pokemon community remains with regard to fan creations. Papercraft isn't often the medium that Pokemon tributes come in, however. With a number of different cosplays, drawings, and fusions on the Pokemon subreddit, this display stands out as a unique tribute.
Though it isn't a common creation, pokecreation's papercraft Jubilife City from Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl is one of the more impressive posts in the community. Their attention to detail and the challenge they took on to create this display truly shows in the post. With Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl on the way, this creation comes at the perfect time to get fans excited.
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will release on November 19, 2021, for Switch.
