Pokémon Legends: Arceus has a structured main story that will have players traveling across the Hisui region, exploring new locations, and capturing Pokémon as they work to build out the region’s first Pokédex. But that’s not the only focus of the game. Multiple side quests and events will appear throughout your journey, too.
One such event is the overarching Unown Research Notes, which tasks players with finding hidden Unown spread throughout the region.
The Unown Research Notes are given to you following the story mission involving Ursaluna. This is a binder full of notes and clues that point you to the location of all 28 Unown forms, 26 based on Latin alphabet characters and two in the shape of an exclamation point and question mark.
All of the hints are written in the language of the Unown, otherwise called the Unown Alphabet, meaning it might be a bit hard to read when trying to locate each variant.
While running around Hisui, you may also just stumble upon some of the Unown you’re looking for. So if you’re ready to try and finish one of Legends: Areceus’ longer quests, here’s the location for every Unown, updated as that information becomes available.
