When traveling through the Hisui region in Pokemon Legends: Arceus, players will be tasked with following hints and locating each of the 28 variations of Unown as part of an overarching event separate from the main story and smaller sidequests. 

This is no easy task, as it will require you to translate the hints using the Unown Alphabet while simultaneously searching far and wide for the hidden Symbol Pokémon.

In order to complete Legends: Arceus, you will need to find and add each letter-styled Pokemon to your collection. The Unown Research Notes, which are given to you after the story mission involving Ursaluna, will guide you to the areas where each Unown is hidden, allowing you to truly catch them all.
