I'm addicted to trying to do all of the movies for the lemonades and berry juice. I find it unfair though, that you don't get a single yen for doing the movie. What do you make of Pokestar?

I thought it was a pretty cool addition. Usually I don't stop during the main game to like do other stuff/attractions, but this time I did. x) and I was surprised your character actually talks for once!

I usually take about a few hours at a time playing with the movies. It takes forever to film and then watch them, but the stories are cute and such, so I'll sit through it. <3
Plus I like seeing how much my movies make when they are released. <33

Am I the only one who never really liked the random gimmicky additions like contests and movies that they added...? I thought that ti's kind of annoying ><;;;

LassLaura October 20th, 2012 11:55 AM

Yeah, I got sorta miffed when I made the studio 198 billion pokebucks and all it got me was 5 Lemonades and some Berry Juice. But now I have almost 2 million from Amulet Coining nearly every battle and saving all my Nuggets and things to sell to the ore guy in Icirrus so meh. Money is a total non-issue in this generation when strangers just hand out healing items and pokeballs all willy-nilly.

I love making movies, just wish I had more Pokemon that could star in them properly.. xD

Rivvon October 20th, 2012 2:50 PM

It would have been super cool if you could have made money from the films, but besides that, I absolutely adore them. They are far more engaging than the typical "contest," and watching the final movie and audience responses is very rewarding! I hope Game Freak continues to move in this direction when it comes to extra features.

LassLaura October 20th, 2012 3:09 PM

Oh yeah, I guess my post wasn't clear about my feelings on the topic but I love making the movies too. But I think Pokewood was a better name than Pokestar.

Hikamaru October 20th, 2012 7:14 PM

I have to admit Pokestar Studios was a nice feature, haven't done it yet (cos I haven't played the games yet, only watched YouTube footage) but I like the outfits the protagonists wear and they actually have dialogue for once.

Altairis October 20th, 2012 10:16 PM

I think it's pretty cool! I played a bunch before I got bored :3 However sometimes certain films Invaders 4 can be really frustrating because you have to take hits for no reason really, and most of the time I would get haxed. D:

They're a really cool addition, though! Glad they decide to include something else other than Musicals, because they were bad imo.

Blue October 21st, 2012 3:45 AM

I find it the most fun out of all of the gimmicks in the game, i.e contest, musical, etc.

Hahaha I know right!? You make, literally, BILLIONS and they give you nothing.

I think it's pretty fun and it's a good way to get healing items if you're short on cash. (BTW, you can sell Castelia Cones to someone in Nimbasa City and you can make, like, 2000 yen a day.) It also gives a more real-life aspect to the games.

They should give you one yen for every billion AT LEAST!!!

I think Pokéwood is a nice side game. I wonder why English seems to be the only language where it is nt called 'pokéwood' btw. if you look on bulbapedia all langauges(apart from chinese) have called it pokéwood.
In anyc ase I have got plenty of movies made, some are actually quite tricky to figure out. like the one where it says you can only use frighten to beat it which is what I did and it still had a bad ending. hmmm. stupid. but I like weird endings. My electabuzz is a star from a a movie with weird ending :D. and it got 990 mio pokedollars that movie :D.
I wonder how many movies you have to make though before you are let through by the guard on the top floor.

Sabrewulf238 October 31st, 2012 2:27 PM

I really enjoyed Pokestar. I usually do enjoy the side quests like the contests and pokeathlon.

The only one I can't really stand is the Musical. It's so pointless.

Zayphora October 31st, 2012 4:15 PM

I love Pokestar! I really enjoy the cutscenes especially. I felt so guilty when I accidentally ruined the princess franchise so I did it over. :P soooomuchmorefunthanmusicals!!!!! Also, the art is awesome. Rosa is a really epic looking scientist.

Mixae October 31st, 2012 7:35 PM

it's so annoying when they make you do it the first time omg. if I get items out if it i guess i'll do it

OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire October 31st, 2012 7:51 PM

I love's the best side activity in the franchise thus far imo (even beating contests and Poketholon). I hate it that we can't use our real pokemon the first time we try out a new movie but I guess it'll be too easy in some cases :P

Twilight-kun November 1st, 2012 2:12 AM

I love ruining the scripts and getting the flashy effect for battles

other then that it's just another side quest I'll never finish

SnowpointQuincy November 1st, 2012 1:08 PM

PokeStar is certainly the most interactive of the "contests". And the Box Office Gross was my FAVORITE part of the thing. Billions of yen is not as much as it soulds, but the huge numbers for such a low-budget greenscrene film is hillarious. And "with the lastest visual FX it only takes seconds to produce a whole movie"


morrison November 2nd, 2012 9:19 AM

Haha how true. lol.

At the moment i am totally at a loss about the last robot with a heart movie... hm I am always getting koed latest at the 4 th scene..

SnowpointQuincy November 2nd, 2012 10:40 AM

My Espeon has a giant glowing star pop up when ever it enters battle!!!! How is that even possible???

From Bulbapedia: If the player manages to create a strange ending with their own Pokémon, their Pokémon will become a star, thus they will be given a special entry animation, much like when a Shiny Pokémon is sent out. The entry animation will be removed if the player then creates a bad ending using the same Pokémon.

I didn't even know it was possible! My Espeon couldn't one hit KO the pawniard, so it casued a strange ending, giving my Espeon (magic bounce, given from castilia) a special Star!!

morrison November 2nd, 2012 2:51 PM

Yes whem my electabuzz was still a elekid, it also gained a star, since then it has got some more strange endings. best one got me 990 mio pokedollars. lol

Pinta77 November 2nd, 2012 4:22 PM

Honestly I'm not a huge fan of the Pokestar thing. However I think that this is a step in the right direction. It opened the door to non Pokemon enemies. How fun would it be if in a future game, team Rocket got their hands on a mecha Tyranitar and you had to fight it!?

IcyIce November 2nd, 2012 4:30 PM

I liked pokestar better than contests and musicals. Exspecly the musicals. But they are still a bit annoying to do. If they could make it a bit more active,instead of just a pokemon battle. I think that would be good.
