Unown is a Psychic-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

Biology

Physiology

Unown is a flat, thin Pokémon shaped like an eye with appendages that make it resemble a letter or a punctuation mark. It is entirely black, except for its white sclera. All 26 alphabetic forms of Unown have fully open eyes while the two punctuation Unown have half-closed eyes. Though each of its forms has a counterpart in the Latin alphabet, Unown is said to resemble ancient writing and hieroglyphs. It is a mystery whether Unown predates or postdates written language, and therefore which one is based on the other.

Trivia

  • The name, "Unown" is based on the word "Unknown".
  • It is widely known as one of the most "non-evolving" Pokémon ever made.
  • The punctuation marks have droopy eyes, while the letters have normal eyes.
  • Altogether, there are 28 known Unown.
  • The "F" Unown is the main letter to appear in the websites.
  • Unown rarely leave their home dimension.
  • Together, a large amount of them can produce enough psychic power to reshape reality based on the dreams of whoever summoned them.
  • Their home dimension was the battle ground for Palkia and Dialga's fight; many of them can be seen fleeing from their fight in the beginning of the movie
  • The only move Unown can learn is Hidden Power, and nothing else.
