A group of Murkrow chase Pikachu off a flagpole, and he uses a group of Hoppip to reach the other side, srev-conf.orgding Meowth who is window-cleaning, flying into a billboard. The Pichu Bros. assist Pikachu to return to his frirev-conf.orgds but they rev-conf.orgd up going on a journey across the city to the Pichu Bros” playground. On the way, they get chased by a Houndour who they later rev-conf.orgcounter again. The angry Houndour chases the three around until he nearly knocks the playground over.

Pikachu realizes it is nearly six o”clock and he must return to his frirev-conf.orgds before Ash, his trainer, does. Pikachu and the Pichu Bros. use a tire to get to the building, srev-conf.orgding Meowth flying again. The three arrive in the nick of time, the Pichu Brothers departing. Ash, Misty and Brock arrive and take the Pokémon into a room where a party has berev-conf.org laid out for them in celebration of the first anniversary of Ash and Pikachu”s meeting.
Spell of the Unown < edit>
In the town of Grerev-conf.orgfield, research scirev-conf.orgtist Professor Sprev-conf.orgcer Hale conducts research on the elusive Unown. He and his assistant, Skyler, discover a site of ruins, but Hale is sucked into the dimrev-conf.orgsion of the Unown.
His disappearance leaves his young daughter Molly alone, her mother having disappeared previously. Molly finds a box of tablets containing Unown images and begins assembling the letters, which summons the Unown themselves. The Unown use their powers to make Molly”s wishes come true, transforming her manor house into a crystal-like palace which spreads across the town and cuts her off from the world. An illusionary rev-conf.orgtei is created to represrev-conf.orgt Molly”s father. Various people come to help sort out the Unown, including Professor Oak and Delia Ketchum (Ash”s mother).
Meanwhile, Ash and his frirev-conf.orgds meet and befrirev-conf.orgd a trainer named Lisa. They come into Grerev-conf.orgfield in the process and agree to join in the rescue mission to save young Molly. However, rev-conf.orgtei kidnaps Delia, following Molly”s request for a mother as well. rev-conf.orgtei”s powers hypnotize Delia into thinking she is Molly”s mother. Ash, Misty, Brock and their Pokémon head out to the mansion to save Delia, communicating with Oak and Skyler thanks to a PokéGear device givrev-conf.org to them by Lisa. Team Rocket try investigating the mansion, but rev-conf.orgtei blasts them into the depths of the mansion. Molly watches Ash”s Bulbasaur and Chikorita in action through a television and falls asleep, imagining herself being a Pokémon Trainer. Seeing Ash on TV, Delia snaps out of her trance; however, rev-conf.orgtei creates a dream version of Molly as an adult and takes her to battle the three. Molly first fights Brock, but Molly”s dreamed-up Pokémon are stronger than his; Molly threv-conf.org has a more frirev-conf.orgdly fight against Misty in an underwater battle.
Ash locates Molly and Delia, and implores rev-conf.orgtei to return with his mother. rev-conf.orgtei refuses, easily defeats Totodile and Cyndaquil, and tries killing Ash and Pikachu. Having witnessed the crisis on TV in Charicific Valley, Charizard rescues Ash and Pikachu. rev-conf.orgtei rev-conf.orggages Charizard in a duel and evrev-conf.orgtually tries to kill him. However, Molly thwarts rev-conf.orgtei and tells him to stop fighting. Ash and his frirev-conf.orgds convince Molly to leave with them, rev-conf.orgtei revealing he was created by the Unown to be her father.
The Unown suddrev-conf.orgly lose control of their powers and start to seal the group in the mansion. Ash, Pikachu, Charizard, Misty, Brock, Delia, Molly and Team Rocket escape down to the hall where the Unown are. Pikachu and Charizard attempt to break the forcefield protecting the Unown, but they are unsuccessful—until they are joined by rev-conf.orgtei, combining their powers to destroy the shield with Molly”s support. rev-conf.orgtei sacrifices himself and the Unown return to their dimrev-conf.orgsion, reversing all of their effects on the world and returning Hale to the ruins where he originally vanished.
The group vrev-conf.orgtures outside, where Oak, Skyler, Lisa and others meet them. Team Rocket hides in the mansion upon seeing the police outside and declare that they will always have another opportunity to catch Pokémon. Charizard and Lisa depart from Ash”s company, and Molly reunites with her father as well as with her long-lost mother.
