Spencer Hale (Japanese: シュリー・スノードン Sully Snowdon) is a researcher from the town of Greenfield. He lives in a huge mansion with his unnamed wife and his daughter Molly.
Younger Delia, Professor Oak, and Spencer
His wife had been hospitalized (this is not directly stated in the original movie, 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 mysterious creatures. His daughter Molly was sad because he did not return, so the Unown created an illusionary Entei to be her father.
Spencer remains in the Unown's dimension until the end of the film. When Entei breaks 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.
