Where to Find All 28 Unown Locations in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

One of the sidequests in Pokémon Legends: Arceus will have you searching for all the Unowns that are scattered across the Hisui region. These Unowns are special and that they cannot be battled against, but they can easily be captured by a single Pokeball. Learn where to find all of them in this guide.

What is a Unown?

Unown is a flat, thin Pokémon shaped like an eye with appendages that make it resemble a letter or a punctuation mark. Unowns protect the cosmos from collapsing, their primary role is to run things from the shadows. When assembled in large numbers, they become omnipotent and can generate new Pokémon while in the presence of Arceus.

How to start the Unown Hunt quest

To start the Unown Hunt quest, once you recover the missing stone slab from the Misfortune Sisters and return it to the Solaceon Ruins in Crimson Mirelands, go back to Professor Laventon and he’ll notice that there’s something stuck on you. It turns out that it’s an Unown and it flees away. You’ll then gain access to the Unown section of your Pokedex. There are 28 different Unowns that are present in the game, from A-Z plus ! and ?.

Where to find the Clues on the Unown Locations

Once you access your Pokedex, you’ll see an additional tab to the right with an image of an Unown. Press Y to open the section that’s dedicated to the Unowns you’ve caught and have yet to catch.

Selecting one of the Unown boxes will actually show a clue that tells the location where you can find that specific Unown. The catch is, it’s cryptic and it’s written in Unown alphabet. The good thing is the alphabet is not that hard to decipher as they resemble the English alphabet, and there are lots of Unown alphabet charts in the internet.
