    This is my 2nd favorite of the pokemon movies. It has one of the best plots of a pokemon movie, and it has one of the best endings in a pokemon movie (the ending made me and my mom cry a little). It was cool how they made the Unknowns omni potent god-like like creatures, and I liked how in the end Entei helped the gang escape the tower (even after him and Charizard had that badass fight). I'm going to watch this again soon to experience the magic all over again .

    I give The Spell of the Unknown a 10.... out of 10

    I loved this movie. It's my favourite Pokemon movie so far. A very colourful, fairytale Pokemon movie. There were lots of awesome Pokemon battles such as the one between Misty and Molly underwater. I liked all of the music, it was used very effectively. The ending was really sad when she had to leave Entei.

    I also give this movie ten out of ten.

    I liked this movie because Ash well he's wonderful as always, but also because Delia and Prof. Oak are in it (there two of my favourite characters on the show that aren't actually always there).

    I really like Entei, I didn't like the Unown at first but they grew on me. But I was thrilled to see Charizard again!

    Liked it because Hanako played a major role and got the attention she deserves and also because Ookido-hakase and Kenji played minor roles. :3 Didn't like the fact that there was so much battling that the story dragged on and on. But other than that the story was nice and unique. The characters were also nicely designed. (Mii is so cute!)

    The best part was watching that Aipom eating all of the Pokemon food... You miss the grand finale if you skip through the credits. I was so happy that they finally recovered Mrs. Hale. It was also interesting seeing how Entei and the Unown were depicted in different cultures. The song playing at the end was great.

    This was a good movie. I started to cry when I found out that Molly had to leave Entei. Then I thought what it would be like for me if I had to abandon my own Entei. It would be so hard to do back when we only had RBYGSC. Now, I'd have no trouble doing it, since I've traded three of them from Colosseum to my Ruby version. Unfortunately, none of them got decent IVs...

    I thought Entei's speed wasn't properly depicted. I think they made Entei look more agile than it really is. When Entei was actually running, I thought it was a little slow. Now don't get me wrong, it was running FAST, but Entei is faster than that.

    It's another ne of these great movies, yet again. It's very dramatic. A lot of good parts, like Charizard vs Entei.

    I liked this movie a lot. It had an awesome story to it and the battle with Misty and Molly underwater was wicked cool.

    I love how Charizard helped Ash, he saw his trainer in trouble on the television screen and flew all the way over to stop his trainer from plummeting to his death... that is very sweet especially considering the relationship they had in the first two regions.

    Question Musical score replaced?

    Was the musical score for Pokemon 3 replaced for the English release? Most of the film's score sounds like it was recorded on a cheap synthesizer instead of the full orchestra the movies usually get. There is one orchestral piece that sounds more like the usual Pokemon incidental music that I like, however, that plays during the end credits.

    The opening credits list Ralph Schuckett as the composer but all of the other films had the usual composer of both the series and movies, Shinji Miyazaki. The one piece of music I did like sounds very much like Miyazaki's work, but he's listed nowhere in the credits.

    Anyone who has seen the Japanese release care to enlighten me? Thanks!
    Latias aways gets a little carried away when it involves love - or perhaps that would better describe Ash in this situation! ^_^

    I don't know if any of the music was kept (I haven't watched the English release in years), but I do know that most if not all was replaced.

    The whole soundtrack was redone for the third movie.

    One thing that they never got into in the movie that I seriously wanted answered--

    In Molly's book, every page that has Entei has a woman with long blue hair who is apparently commanding him. Who *IS* she?! And was she meant to mirror Molly? Because if so, they never got into it.

    Anyway, did this movie remind anyone else of some psycho cross between Labyrinth and NeverEnding Story?

    I love this movie.
    -It seemed to focus more on plot than on battling
    -There was no moral being shoved down our throats
    -Charizard! >_> <_<
    -There was a bit more that we were left to figure out on our own(like the blue-haired women in the book that Gabbiani mentioned)
    -It just...felt better. Maybe it was the dubbing, maybe it was the pacing, I'm not sure.
    -Ash isn't out to save the world, for once. He just wanted to save his mother. Although one must wonder what would have happened had the crystalization caused by the Unown had gone unchecked...
    -The art seemed better than in the past 2 movies
    -The CGI worked out well for the Unown - it seemed fitting that beings from another dimension would look different from everything else in the "normal" dimension.

    I give this movie a 10/10. Best Pokemon movie yet, IMO.

    Hmm...does anyone else remember the dub of this being called "Lord of the Unown Tower"(which is pretty much its JP title) in the earliest promos?

    I have this on DVD, I watched it last night (and I'm going to watch it later in ^_^).

    I really really REALLY liked the battle between Ash and Lisa, although it was one of those rushed battles which was annoying. The artwork was great for it!

    I really liked the Molly's battles with Brock and Misty aswell, Staryu put up a great battle when against Mantine (and the music was great!).

    The final "Pokémon" movie I saw in theaters - or at all, for that matter. I remember how much my obsession had grown at this point - when I went to see "Mewtwo Strikes Back", I went with my dad and my sister; then I saw "The Power of One" with just my dad and a friend. But this one I paid for and saw alone, since nobody in my family wanted to sit through "another one of Jesse's Pokémon movies".

    Still, this movie was head and shoulders above the mediocre season it was released during. I remember feeling sorry for all the kids in the theater who hadn't read the spoilers and didn't know where Squirtle went or where Totodile and Noctowl came from (curse you, Warner Bros., for releasing this movie three months too early...). I loved the artwork in this movie, especially the demented world that the Unown create. The plot was a little more mature than the previous two releases - rather than some unstoppable powerhouse Pokémon threatening to destroy order, it's just a little girl who misses her father inadvertantly wreaking havoc. Entei is one of the best legendaries to show up in a movie, and the battle between him and Ash's Charizard was a great device. And to top it all off, the long-underused Delia Ketchum finally gets some screen time to herself.

    I've still got the promotional Entei card I received from this movie - and it kind of disappointed me that nobody else wanted to come with me to this one, because nobody else in my family ever wanted the cards they got with their tickets and gave them all to me. I could have had three reverse holofoils as trading collateral...

    XD I actually have 13 of those promotional Entei cards.XD 12 are still in their original packaging.

    You do bring up a very good point about the movie in relation to the season it corresponds with. For all the fillers and sub-par plot developments of Johto it had by far the best movies.

    I like how they gave the folks back in Masara Town some screentime, bringing Ookido-Hakase and Hanako into the spotlight was an excellent idea and added a nice touch to the movie. And seeing Lizardon come back to fight for Satoshi was also great, despite all the crap he catches for doing so.:P

    Rin (Lisa) was a great character even though we didn't get to see that much of her, and her battle with Satoshi at the beginning was cool. She seemed like the archetypal Johto trainer, what with the pokégear, her outfit and whatnot.

    The animation was also excellent, very rich and colorful. I still prefer the look of the hand drawn animation to the newer computer animated movies.

    Overall, I just liked the whole feel of the movie and I enjoyed it a lot.

    This is ok-movie, but not the best one, coming of Charizard was good, the movie just had something that wasn`t good, maybe the plot or something... The japanese version could be good to see, it could make the movie better... 7/10.
