Pokemon Legends Arceus Unown Location 01

Pokemon Legends: Arceus is now out and there are plenty of mysteries to find as you adventure through the new (old?) region of Hisui. One of the big quests of the game is the Unkown Research notes, where you need to catch each type of Unown from A to Z and the additional '!' and '?' Unown. In this Pokemon Legends: Arceus Unown Locations Guide we'll go over each of the different clues for finding the Unown forms.

How to start the Pokemon Legends: Arceus Unown Quest?

Play through the campaign until you get to the part where you return the broken tablet to the Solaceon Ruins. Once it has been returned speak to Professor Laventon again. He will notice a flying Unown A behind you. After talking with it it will disappear and the Professor will add an Unown section to your Pokedex. You can access it by pressing Y on the Pokedex cover screen.

The Unown will not just be walking around like other Pokemon, instead they'll be hiding in various locations. You'll definitely miss them if you aren't paying attention so be sure to look close! The following Unown can be found in each region:
