Printed this at 30% on a MP Select Mini 2 to go with some other models that my nieces picked out on Thingiverse. At that size, the tail was 2 layers thick or less, depending on whether I printed Pikachu standing up (slight blob by Pikachu's bottom, no tail) or flat with supports for maximum tail strength (2 layers, 1 pass thick at base).

Eventually I scaled the model so the tail thickness was at 150% and the other dimensions were at 30%. The resulting print was still pretty thin, but we were able to friction weld it to the regularly proportioned 30% size Pikachu body with success and I think that the girl who chose it will be happy.

I don't think this print would work well even at 100% on my Monoprice, though admittedly I'm a newbie. I sliced the model using Cura with 0.175 mm layers. If you have an entry level printer like mine, I'd definitely double check the layers around the tail before committing filament to the print.

my brother loves it
