Mii Snowdon is left on her own after her father disappears while investigating the mysterious letter-shaped pokemon 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 pokemon Entei to act as her father.

Meanwhile, Satoshi heads to Greenfield with his faithful pokemon 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 pokemon, must travel the crystallized landscape to confront Entei and the Unown.

I watched this as a child around 5-8 years old- and i remember it clearly- i have it on VHS and let me tell you-it was the bomb! it rocked my 6 year old mind. This was my favorite of all the Pokemon movies out at the time.

It Had Great sound,great artwork, a heartwarming story and as a kid it was just awesome.
They did a lot of character Development on Entei, showing his depth and he wasn't just the bad guy-he was the misunderstood villain,so much that i didn't see him as the true villian-he was the good guy to me.Entei was My read more

Another Pokemon movie. Pokemon 3.

Even it has been a long time since I watched this one I still remember it.

Story: 7 . Many have given this movie a low rating. I am not sure why because I think has a very good story. There is some mystery and it is excting story too.

Art: 8 I think the art and sound is very good in this movie. What I can say about the art is that is a very beautiful art this time. Wonderful. Sound - as the other Pokemon movies.

The characters is this movie in Ash and co. but there is also a little read more

"Spell of the Unknown" stands as the odd one out among the dozen or so Pokemon films. While the first was driven by plot, second by action, the third film is driven by characters. Molly, an aquaintance of Ash has lost her father on one of his excavations trips related to Unown, a mysterious pokemon species. Finding herself all alone, she is given unfathomable power by the same Unown who pushed her father into oblivion. As the traumatized child reshapes the world in her image, Ash's mother is kidnapped by Entei, Molly's projection of a missing father. Thus Ash is forced to venture into the read more

*English is NOT my first language! Review will be edited... eventually!*

I can clearly remember, when someone older than me, and actual native english speaker - not like me - once described this movie, as a 'Silent Hill for children'. Linkara, was that you? Anyway, I can fully agree with him, because despite being about pokemon, this movie is dark. And sweet... like a salty liquorice!

What I especially love about this movie, is that the setting for the story itself is actually in this time made... well, smaller, and thus more personal, than the first two movies. The first two movies - while still quite good read more
