Overview

A handful of strange creatures prove just how dangerous the imagination can be in the third American feature adapted from the popular Pokemon animated series. Prof. Spencer Hale is an archeologist studying ancient Pokemon when he uncovers a strange breed of "pocket monsters" called "Unown," whose bodies form runic symbols that resemble the letters of the alphabet. The Unown can read people's minds and transform their fantasies into reality, and when the professor mysteriously disappears, his young daughter Molly is given the materials (and the Pokemon) her father collected. As Molly plays with the Unown, her home is mysteriously transformed into a crystal fortress that expands to envelop the entire community of Greenfield, and a number of dangerous monsters are released from Molly's daydreams -- one of whom captures her mother and spirits her away. Realizing the crisis is the work of the Unown, legendary Pokemon-trainer Ash leaps into action to capture the creatures and teach Molly about the dangers of the Unown. Pokemon the Movie 3: Spell of the Unown was distributed with an accompanying short subject, Pikachu and Pichu, which finds the most popular Pokemon visiting the city with his new friend.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lewis Somoza Manalo
Not quite ready to let the phenomenon die, Ash, Pikachu, and friends are back in this third feature-length Pokémon movie, Spell of the Unown. The titular spell-casting Pokémon is accidentally unleashed by a mysterious little girl, and Greenfield finds itself under siege by fierce and ancient powers. Naturally, it's up to Ash and the gang to stop it, which involves unraveling the secrets of this rare breed of pocket monsters. Matters worsen when the powerful and legendary Pokémon Entei kidnaps Ash's mom -- introducing the reliable this-time-it's-personal angle. As with the previous two Pokémon movies, Spell of the Unown is a fan's delight, with an enjoyable balance of traditional and computer-generated animation that is a cut well above the TV programs. The hilarious animated short Pikachu and Pichu is also included, featuring dozens of new Pokémon in their screen debuts.
New York Times
Worthwhile morals abound in this film. Little Molly learns from a basso-voiced Pokémon, "If you believe in me, there is nothing I cannot do." There's a perky song with the lyric "Be the best that you can be." And reality is presented as a big improvement over fantasy. Anita Gates

    The best Pokemon movie ever!

    I was like 6 or 7 years old when I first started watching Pokemon. I was blown away by the first movie. But this film.... it's breath-taking!<BR/>The plot, the emotion, the action, and the animation!<BR/>I'm 16-years-old now, it's been a long time since I've watched this, so I decided to finally own it myself on DVD, and I bought it. I just watched it and I was totally blown away. I think I like and understand more than when I was younger. This is a film that is intense, sometimes emotional, and just amazing. Something kids, teens, and I'm pretty sure adults, could all enjoy together!<BR/>5 Stars *****<BR/>So if you remember watching Pokemon when you were a kid, and you are now a teenager like me, I'm sure you will enjoy those fond memories being refreshed in your mind!

    Not too bad for an animated film...

    I hated Pokemon completely after Gold and Silver were released. But that changed after I saw the third installment of Pokemon movies, Spell of the Unown. This feature follows Ash and his friends doing what they usually do, look for Pokemon. Then, giant creepy creature (Entei) comes and takes Ash's mom away. A girl named Molly thinks that Ash's mom is her mom. Confusing as it sounds, it leads to a huge pitfall of excitement as Entei and Ash's Charizard go at it. Whether you are a Pokemon fan or not, I recommend this to anyone who wants to see an animated film not involving elven creatures (*cough* Snow White *cough*) or talking animals (*cough* Snow Dogs *cough*).
