    The Aquarius loves a party. Anytime, anywhere is their motto. It is not unlikely that an Aquarius will consider a wake a good place to meet chicks. Aquarians love to be naked. It is even better if they are naked and crocked. Froot Loops is a very Aquarian cereal. So is Rice Krispies, since it will engage in a friendly chat with the Aquarian as he or she is eating breakfast. Count Chocula is off-limits, however. It belongs to the Scorpios. Aquarians use the phrase "Dude, man..." frequently when describing philosophical concepts. Aquarians have out-of-body experiences on a daily basis. If you are talking to an Aquarian and he or she zones out, consider the conversation hopeless. He or she is talking to the guy three feet away from you. Aquarians are fun because they channel people. Plus, if you tell them to, they will run around naked. Aquarians like astronomy because they've been to all those places. If you want to know what the food is like on Saturn, ask an Aquarius. Aquarians can allow themselves every possible vice on the planet, and don't think twice about it. That is why they piss everyone else off. They are cosmically entitled to do this.

    IMO this is great, it's really something that suits my enjoyment and I much prefer it to the Musical.

      The Pokewood seems more fun than the Musicals. I think it would pretty cool to do when the games come out.

        I will probably participate in this in comparison to the Musical/Contests... neither of those interested me but I love movies so this should be really fun to try out!

          Pokéwood certainly sounds cooler than any of the Contests/Musicals/other similar stuff that have come before it, and though the finished product will probably not live up to my sky-high expectations, I'm still very excited to see the end result. Like Mac, I love movies, so to see them integrated into the Pokemon world is wonderful for me!

          Tbh I loved the musicals in BW, but I am interested to see what this Pokéwood thing will actually be like. I'll give it a chance and based on the anime version it'll be pretty cool, but I'm not holding out much hope for it tbh. x]

            Pokewood is definately something I'm going to check out in the game, unlike those musicals and other contests... (besides R/S/E)

            Hmm, Pokéwood does seem very interesting and it seems like GameFreak really wants us to know about it and use it. But I think it's going to be one of those features I barely use, just because it doesn't serve great importance in the game, and contests would be far better I'd probably often forget about it. Unless Pokéwood is actually really impressing, then we'll see I guess.

              I'm really glad they don't put the Musical in BW2. It was a very bad idea though it looked great, I would have prefered contests instead of that.
              At least, even if we haven't a lot of informations about the Pokéwood, it can't be worse than the Musical, and for the moment that seems pretty fun and original.

              The Musical building still shows on the new map of Unova, so I'm pretty sure it'll still be there.

              Musicals never really gave the better impression like Pokéwood has though, and it is original. You'd only expect a theater in New York, so one in Unova was a great idea.

                Is this "Pokewood" going to like contests/musicals where we're scored? How is that going to turn out then? Will we see the other AI's movies? What kind of props and stuff will be used? Which Pokemon will look the best in these movies?
                Does this "Pokewood" seem to much of a Japanese concept to you? The box art gives us a picture of a Godzilla/Tyranitarzilla. What do you think it is for?
                Yeah, try to answer all of my questions!

                It's unknown how the scoring will go down; I don't even think it's been confirmed to have a scoring system, we'll have to wait for small details like that. And as for props, I think they're already there. You may get to choose a scenario? And downloadable content maybe available idk. Not much is known.

                I for one, cannot wait. I think it's going to be better than the musicals, which didn't really appeal to people. But still, nothing can replace contests.

                  I never really liked Contests or the Musical, and this does sound a lot more interesting.
                  Though I doubt that it can hook me nearly as much as the Pokéathlon which, in my opinion anyway, was pure brilliance.

                  It sounds awesome. Musicals were a little neat, Contests were extremely fun, but now we have something that involves the player more as well as the Pokemon, not just exclusively Pokemon. The thought of a Power Rangers mix with Pokemon is super awesome, too. :D

                    I think it's nice, and like Jellicent I'm glad to see the trainer get a place in the minigames beyond just dressing them up. Though I do wonder if this means that Musicals won't even appear at all...

                      So anyway as you know there's this whole thing where you get to battle a giant robot Tyranitar, and I saw a pic showing that bot fighting a huge Golurk in the anime.

                      so anyway what's your opinion on the whole giant robot fight? do you think it's rather cliche' coz you know... it's japan

                        That battle I'm pretty sure is a part of the new PokeWood movie studio sidestory, which possibly replaces the Musical Hall in Nimbasa City. Brycen seems to play a part in it, too.
                        In that sense, it's the Pokemon equivalent of the kaiju (Godzilla-like) movie genre.

                        PokéWood is where all the giant robot fights and thriller action happens, and there happens to be a thread on it. So, merging this with that thread.

                          I don't understand the name. Maybe I'm having a blonde moment, but I can't relate the name to anything in real life, so I'm not really sure why it's called what it's called.

                          If it where music related, I could see wood being in reference to woodwind instuments, but I don't know how it relates to giant robot Tyranatars


                          I don't know, maybe I'm just stupid

                            Its a play on Hollywood. Movies are made there, you make a Movie in Pokewood. Just Pokemon + Hollywood.

                                From the looks of it, it seems pretty interesting. And way better that Musicals.

                                    Basically it's a facility that allows you to make Movies, at the moment the only movie shown that you can make is basically a Tokusatsu movie, aka, think Power Rangers or Super Sentai, you can change the movie's outcome via different dialogue choices and then participate in battles.
