How to find Unown

Unown are found scattered around the Hisui region in different locations. They are typically sticking flush against cliffs and walls, though some of them may be hanging from trees and the like. Once you find an Unown, throw a Poké Ball at it for a guaranteed catch.

Some Unown are in hard-to-reach places, so you may need to use Feather Balls or other lightweight balls to reach them.

Hints to where each Unown is hiding can be found in the Unown Research Notes section of your Pokédex.


What do I get for finding all the Unown?

A completed and perfect Pokédex entry for Unown and the satisfaction of knowing that you now have all the mysterious alphabet Pokémon.

Once you find all of the Unown, you can also catch them freely in the Solaceon Ruins. Though the static hidden Unown cannot be Shiny, the ones in the ruins can be Shiny.


Complete Unown location list

Below we list out all the locations of each Unown. Some may require special mount Pokémon, like Sneasler, to find. We recommend waiting until you get Braviary to go on the hunt, as flying around the map quickly makes it way easier.
