'''Pokéstar Studios''' (Japanese: '''ポケウッド''' ''Pokéwood'', formally called '''ポケウッドムービースタジオ''' ''Pokéwood Movie Studio'') is a city in the [[Generation V]] games {{game|Black and White|s|4=2}} located north of [[Virbank City]].
 
Pokéstar Studios has a feature like [[Pokémon Contest]]s, [[Pokémon Super Contest]]s, the [[Pokéathlon]], and [[Pokémon Musical]]s, providing {{pkmn|Trainers}} with an alternative to battling. Pokéstar Studios allows the {{player}} to take part in making films involving Pokémon. The player will choose from various scenarios and act them out. Pre-release videos and pictures have shown Pokéstar Studios to pay homage to {{wp|Hollywood}} and is where the player may take part in filming Pokémon movies. The films feature a scenario chosen by the player, and a number of [[Pokémon battlesbattle]]s. [[Pop Roxie]]'s, father[[Brycen]] isand also revealed to[[Sabrina]] have co-starred in films alongsideproduced [[Brycen]].in Pokéstarthe Studios has also been shown to include battle-style segments, such as battling against mechanical Pokémonstudio.
 
The facility is run by an elderly man named '''Stu Deeoh''' (Japanese: '''ウッドウさん''' ''Mr. Wood'').
 
==In the games==
===Location===
Pokéstar Studios is found in southwest [[Unova]]. It is connected to [[Virbank City]] from the south and can only be accessed after the {{player}} has defeated the [[Virbank Gym]] [[Gym Leader|Leader]] [[Roxie]].
 
===Making films===
[[File:B2W2 Prerelease Pokéwood Typhlosion.png|thumb|right|200px|A {{p|Typhlosion}} takes on Mecha {{p|Tyranitar}}]]
To make a film, the {{player}} must first choose whether to use a [[rental Pokémon]] or a Pokémon from their own [[party]]. However, the player is not allowed to use their party Pokémon in a film until they have filmed a Good Ending for it. Then, the player goes to a room with a green screen and faces a person in a [[Pokémon battle]]. During the battle, several script options are shown. The player must choose the option that best matches the movie script. The options chosen will determine the course of the film.
 
Once the filming is complete, the player can watch the movie in the theater, with up to eight films able to play in the theater simultaneously. Beyond eight, the player will have to choose between either deleting an existing film or not (the box sales records do remain even if a film is removed).
 
There are three types of endings that a movie can get:
* '''Good Ending''' - Generated by following the script. Creates a good, if predictable, ending. Getting the good ending usually unlocks the next movie in the series. The player can tell they are getting the good ending based on the pleased reactions of the director.
* '''Bad Ending''' - Generated by deviating from the script, such as acting out of character (acting scared when playing a superhero, ''not'' acting scared when a zombie appears, etc.) or not completing the battle puzzle properly. Directors have an aggravated response when triggering a bad ending.
* '''Strange Ending''' - Generated by deviating from the script a certain way, causing a puzzled response from the director. Strange endings change the nature of the movie entirely and generate a shocked reaction.
 
If the player manages to create a strange ending with their own Pokémon, their Pokémon will become a star and 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. Pokémon that know {{m|Transform}}, {{m|Torment}}, or {{m|Metronome}} are banned from participating in films. Pokémon with {{a|Illusion}} and {{a|Imposter}} are also forbidden.

==In the manga==
[[File:Pokéstar Studios gate Adventures.png|thumb|230px|Pokéstar Studios in Pokémon Adventures]]
===In the Pokémon Adventures manga===
Pokéstar Studios was featured in ''[[PS530|Movie Panic]]'', where {{adv|Cheren}} took his [[Pokémon academy|Aspertia Trainers' School]] class to visit the studios. {{adv|Whitley}} got to act in a Brycen-Man movie, but in the middle of the shooting, Mecha Tyranitar appeared and started attacking everyone. The mecha was stopped by {{adv|Blake}} and his {{TP|Blake|Dewott}}, and the scene was added to the movie. After watching the movie, the class left the studios.
 
At the Pokéstar Studios, it was revealed that [[Sabrina]] was an actress performing there, and that {{adv|White}} had been involved in creating the studios.

==Trivia==
* Its name in Japanese, Korean and European languages, ''Pokéwood'', is based on the name {{wp|Hollywood}}.
* The film directors are all named after real-life Hollywood directors. "Sydney Pokémet", credited as director in the movies, is a reference to Hollywood icon {{wp|Sidney Lumet}}. Likewise, "John Pokénter" and "David Pokénch" pay homage to {{wp|John Carpenter}} and {{wp|David Lynch}}, respectively.
* If a [[Shiny Pokémon]] with the star animation is sent out, the Pokémon's Shiny animation will not play. However, it will still retain its Shininess. This also applies to any of [[N's Pokémon]].
* It is possible to {{m|Surf}} in the furthest tree tile to the right outside the theater building at Pokéstar Studios due to {{DL|List of glitches in Generation V|Pokéstar Studios surfable tree|a glitch}}.
* Pokéstar Studios is the only place in the main series games in which the [[player character]] is shown speaking, unless the debatable {{OBP|Copycat|character}} dialogue and answers to questions are counted.
