Mii Snowdon is left on her own after her father disappears while investigating the mysterious letter-shaped Pokémon called the Unown. The only clue to her father's disappearance is a box containing several tiles. While playing with these tiles, Mii makes a wish to see her father again, and this wish awakens the Unown—who summon the lion-like, legendary Pokémon Entei to act as her father.

Meanwhile, Satoshi heads to Greenfield with his faithful Pokémon companion, Pikachu, to meet with his friends, Kasumi and Takeshi. When they reach the area, they are shocked to find the place crystallized. They quickly learn that the Unown are responsible for this, and that they will need to be defeated in order to restore Greenfield to its former beauty.

The situation becomes personal when Satoshi's mother is kidnapped by Entei. To discover why his mother was taken away, Satoshi, along with his friends and Pokémon, must travel the crystallized landscape to confront Entei and the Unown.

Mixed Feelings
The movie starts off with a slightly ridiculous but cute short film about Pikachu's adventure with the Pichu brothers. (It's actually the lenght of a normal TV episode, about 20mins, so no wonder it felt so long!) While that one was okay, it was a bit childish, not to mention felt a bit drawn out.

The actual movie itself was better than the second Pokémon movie. The plot was calmer and more detailed, the art was beautiful, and I liked it quite a lot.

Sometimes the events did get a bit repetitive, and when the plot had a few crucial turns near the end, I wasn't sure ...

This is going to sound harsh but it's just on my personal enjoyment, I'm not trying to talk on the objective quality of the movie or challange someone's opinion. Disclaimer has been placed.

Spell of the Unknown is a borderline emotionally-manipulative movie for simple minded buffoons. It's just trying to hit simple uwu emotional beats but if you're a little cynical like me, you'll see how mind-numbingly basic & uncreative the story is. No, SotU, pulling heart strings is not enough to have merit as a movie, you gotta try a little harder than that.

The "villain" girl is self-righteous, unreasonable & just aggression inducing ...
