From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Spencer Hale (Japanese: シュリー・スノードン Sully Snowdon) is a character in the third Pokémon movie, Spell of the Unown: Entei. He is a researcher from Greenfield who lives in a huge mansion with his wife and his daughter Molly.
Younger Spencer with Delia and Oak
His wife had been hospitalized (this is not directly stated in the Japanese version, but instead revealed in guidebooks relating to it), but in the dub this was changed to her disappearing when looking for Unown, a project he was a part of as well. One day, as he explored an ancient building with his assistant Schuyler, Spencer too vanished into the alternate dimension of the Symbol Pokémon. His daughter Molly was sad because he did not return, so the Unown created an illusory Entei to be her father.
Spencer remained in the Unown's dimension until the end of the film. When Entei broke through the barrier, the Unown were no longer out of control, allowing him to be free from the dimension. He returned later, as did his wife, after the Unown's influence over Molly ended.
Spencer is good friends with Delia Ketchum, and they were both students of Professor Oak.
