Spell of the Unown
   
Renowned Pokémon researcher Spencer Hale goes mysteriously missing while researching a species of Pokémon, the {{p|Unown}}. He leaves behind his daughter, young [[Molly Hale|Molly Hale]]. In her grief, Molly unwittingly summons the Unown, who realise her dreams and wishes into existence. The Unown appease her wishes for a father and mother by creating a representation of the legendary Pokémon, {{p|Entei}} to act as a father figure, and for a mother they kidnap [[Ash Ketchum|Ash's]] mother, [[Delia Ketchum]].

When a shipment of tiles from the ruins arrive at the mansion, the girl's depression and desire for companionship invokes the Unown trapped within them. As Molly wishes, they use their reality-warping powers to seal off the mansion and the surrounding valley of Greenfield in crystals and create an image of the legendary Pokémon Entei to stand in for her father.

Spell of the Unown

Professor Spencer Hale, once one of Professor Oak's top students and a good friend of the Ketchum family, is obsessed with discovering the secret behind the mysterious glyph-like Pokémon called Unown. One day while investigating some ruins, he disappears after encountering the enigmatic creatures, leaving his only daughter, Molly, alone and lonely back at his mansion. When a shipment of tiles from the ruins arrive at the mansion, the girl's depression and desire for companionship invokes the Unown trapped within them. As Molly wishes, they use their reality-warping powers to seal off the mansion and the surrounding valley of Greenfield in crystals and create an image of the legendary Pokémon Entei to stand in for her father. When Molly wishes for a mother (who had also vanished), Entei kidnaps Ash's mother Delia and brainwashes her into thinking she is the girl's mother, prompting Ash to charge head-first into the mansion on a rescue mission to not only save Delia, but also everyone else from the increasingly destructive powers of the Unown, who are more and more manipulated by Molly's impulses and feelings, crystallizing more and more of the environment within the mansion's vicinity.

Molly notices that Ash, Brock, and Misty are trying to enter the mansion. Delia sees this too and when she sees Ash, she snaps out of her trance. Molly proceeds to deal with the intruders by approaching them with a projection of sorts. When Brock says that she is too young, Molly "makes" herself older with Entei's power. Brock then challenges her first to a Pokémon battle, but loses to her own versions of super-powerful Pokémon, called Crystal Pokémon, created by Entei. Ash and Misty are about to head up the second set of stairs when they are encountered by the older Molly again, but this time Misty takes her challenge. Surprised that Misty is old enough to be a Gym Leader, Molly readjusts her age to match Misty's. She also changes the arena to an underwater setting, but even with the new advantage underwater, Misty still loses to Molly's Crystal Pokémon. Climbing the final set of stairs, Ash finally finds Delia with the real Molly, who is sleeping.

Delia is surprised to see Ash and with him, tries to convince Molly to leave and return to reality. However, Ash is then confronted by Entei who viciously defends Molly's feelings. Forced into battle, Ash uses Totodile and Cyndaquil against Entei but the two are easily beaten. Pikachu is not as easily defeated, and puts up a valiant fight against Entei. Ash's Charizard, who had seen Ash in trouble on Liza's television earlier and decided to help, returns from the Charicific Valley to save Ash and Pikachu after Entei sends them flying. Ash then mounts Charizard as Entei engages them, and a spectacular battle erupts. Charizard is more evenly-matched against Entei, and the two Pokémon throw everything they have at each other. At one point, Ash tries to talk Entei out of fighting to do what's best for Molly, but Entei persists. Just as Entei is about to unleash a powerful blast at point blank range to finish Charizard off, Molly stops him, and decides she wants to live in reality again.

However, the Unown start to lose control of their combined Psychic powers after having fed off so much of Molly's feelings. Entei is forced to attack his creators in order to restore peace. With help from Pikachu and Charizard, Entei manages to penetrate the Unowns's shield and then stops their spell by hitting them with a Fire Blast. Entei bids farewell to Molly, telling her to keep him close in her dreams as he fades away. The Unown return to their dimension, releasing Professor Hale into the ruins he disappeared from. The group go outside and find that Greenfield has returned to normal. Team Rocket, trapped up in a tower with Wobbuffet for the duration of the movie, announce that they can attempt to be heroes next time and bid farewell with a cry of "Team Rocket's fading out again!"

In the credits, Charizard leaves to return to Charicific Valley, and Molly acquires a real Teddiursa along with the return of her mother and father.

Trivia

  • Two Pokémon Dolls in Molly's room, Phanpy and Teddiursa, are later imagined as her own Pokémon, when she battles against Misty and Brock. Even later on, in the credits, she gets her own Teddiursa.
  • The movie's title, Spell of the Unown, refers to both the fact that the crystal covering much of Greenfield is made by a spell that the Unown have made, but as well that Unown are able to be used to literally spell out words and phrases, which Molly does with the tiles.
  • Some of the Unown that appear on Professor Oak's computer are, as of yet, unreleased. However, since they're just drawings, it is possible that they don't really exist in Pokémon world.
  • The Unown at the bottom of the cover spell out Entei. This is most likely because of his large role in the movie.
  • A picture in Molly's book has similar wings to a Beautifly.
