The world of Pokémon has always been filled with secrets, rumors, and myths. Many of these legends turned out to be just fake stories handed down, such as the infamous Mew under the truck in New York. Pokémon Red and Blue, but the series has never shied away from capturing these moments of collaboration and story sharing by introducing so many hidden things and secrets in their game. Sometimes they don’t mean it, like MissNo., but there are a lot of rarities and secrets that Game Freak has put in that only the most dedicated coaches can uncover.
With Pokémon Legend: Arceus, the potential for secrets explode. The wide open areas, plus all the new ways to traverse and interact with it, open up a multitude of possibilities. One secret Pokémon that is making a comeback, even though they’re more like a collectible than an actual monster, is Unown. Pokémon with weird symbols that make up their own weird alphabet are back and harder to find than ever. If you want to know how to find all the Hidden Numbers in Pokémon Legend: Arceuswe have pinpointed all of them for you to grasp.
What is hidden?
These mysterious iconic Pokémon are scattered across different areas of the Hisui region. In total, there are 28 Unowns, and only one of them. Again, they should be considered Pokémon that are less like and more like collectibles that just happen to be Pokémon. As such, each of them will always appear in the same position, and either stuck to the wall or suspended from the environment.
Each Unown corresponds to a letter of our alphabet, plus two other letters for the exclamation point and the question mark. Just swapping Unown for English letters, you can read all messages written in Unown.
Your Pokédex can give you some hints on where to hide Unown, but they’re not always the most helpful, especially for those in some hard-to-reach locations. Plus, they’re written in the Unknown alphabet, which means you’ll have to decipher them just to get a general clue. Once you spot a ball, all you need to do is hit them with any Pokéball to catch that ball and add it to your Pokédex. Since some can be overhead or far away, having a Feather Ball is useful to increase your throw range.
Is there a reward for finding all the Unknowns?
Yes and no. Otherwise, you get a perfect Pokédex item for the Unknown by finding them all, but it really is. No bonus items or anything to collect them all; However, a lot of things are locked after completing your Pokédex, so it pays off in that respect too.
How to find all unknown unknowns
These are the positions for all 28 Unknown hides in alphabetical order, with step one respectively for Unknown A, 2 for B, 3 for C, etc., with the Unknown punctuation mark at the end. Again, you don’t have to fight any – just spot and throw Pokéballs at them to add them to your Pokédex. You should also wait to start hunting for all of these until you have a mount capable of flying, as that will cut down on the process considerably.
Step 1: A Unown is located in the Crimson Mirelands. Head to the Diamond Settlement and look for the large dark gray tents. Sticking to the top around the back of one is this sneaky Unown.
Step 2: Unidentified B is in the Cobalt Coastlands on Fire Island Hospital. As you approach Alpha Ninetails near the volcano, search along the mountain’s wall for this spy letter.
Step 3: You are going to the Coronet Plateau for Unown C. In the Covered Ruins, just east of the Sacred Plaza, climb the ruined pillars to face this Unown.
Step 4: In Crimson Mirelands, go to the northwest of the map, west of the river to the abandoned campsite. Didn’t know D would chill on a stump.
Step 5: To get to the Obsidian Fieldlands, first head to Grueling Grove at the northeast end of the map and head to the smallest island in the area. Trapped to the tree will be E undefined.
Step 6: Return to the Coronet Plateau, go to the Ancient Quarry and look up the mountainside. Unknown F is watching you from one of the jagged peaks near the top, so make sure you have a light orb to bounce all the way up there.
Step 7: Unknown G is located in the Obsidian Fieldlands just above the Obsidian Falls. Right at the top of the falls, you can spot Unown stuck on a rock.
Step 8: This sneaky Unown is in Jubilife Village. Check out the sign hanging above the south gate that leads right into the village and you’ll see Unown H mixed in with the letters.
Step 9: Unknown I’m right next to the entrance to Lake Verity in the Obsidian Fieldlands. Just go around the back of the cave to get this little letter.
Step 10: Back in the Ancient Quarry in the Coronet Plateau, Unown J hung himself from a wall in a stone tunnel.
Step 11: U determines K is in the Crimson Mirelands Covered Ruins, but thankfully not all of that is hidden. Just look for the giant red cairn and you’ll spot the Unown at the top.
Step 12: Back in the Coronet Plateau, Unown L is in the Wayward Cave. On the walls here, it’s dark, but the big white eye is a deadly gift.
Step 13: Head a little south of the Sulf Mound in the Crimson Mirelands, not far from where you meet Ursaluna, and check out the fallen tree trunks. Stuck at the end of one is the undefined M.
Step 14: A crook from the Cobalt Coastlands is walking out at the end of Sand’s Reach. Go to the giant rocks jutting out of the water. Unknown N is hanging on the way up on the north pillar.
Step 15: Now to Alabaster Icelands, you need to go down to the cave next to Icebound Falls. Along one of the icicles, close to the roof, is the Unknown Umbrella.
Step 16: Unown P is relaxing in a flower bed during the Legendary Spring in Coronet Highlands. Close your eyes so that the big eye looking back at you is hidden among the flowers.
Step 17: Q Unown is also a nature fan, hidden just outside the entrance to the Reversible Cave in the Cobalt Coastlands. Check out the tree just outside and notice that one of the branches doesn’t belong.
Step 18: In another section of the Cobalt Coastlands, this time in Lunker’s Lair, Unown R is lying flat on a cliff near the lawn.
Step 19: Unknown S has been confused with lumber and is being used in Alpha Bibarel’s dam at Tidewater Dam in the Obsidian Fieldlands. Take the water and you will see it mixed with the wood.
Step 20: Near the middle of Alabaster Icelands, right next to Avalugg’s Heritage, check out the icicles surrounding the area. It’s not clear that the T will stick out like a sore thumb.
Step 21: Unown U is also in Alabaster Icelands, in Heart’s Crag. It is located at the top of the waterfall.
Step 22: Deep in the Scarlet Bog of the Crimson Mirelands, Unown V is dangling from a tree stuck in the mud at the west end.
Step 23: Unown W is also a sneak in Jubilife Village. Look on the roof of the Galaxy Hall building, specifically the Magikarp statue. This unown is merging into the statue’s eyes.
Step 24: Now to the Grandtree Arena in the Obsidian Fieldlands, the same place where you fought Kleavor, Unown X is perched on top of a tree branch.
Step 25: Unknown Y is descending south at Icebound Falls in Alabaster Icelands. The waterfall is frozen, with this Unown stuck in the snow.
Step 26: Our last letter is Unown, Z, located on the shipwreck at Deadwood Haunt in the Cobalt Coastlands. It was hung from the highest mast near the stern of the ship.
Step 27: Unclear! lies south of Snowy Hot Springs in Alabaster Icelands, but almost hangs from the highest branches of the bare trees.
Step 28: Finally, Don’t know? is an easy one in Jubilife Village. You just go around the back of the house and it will dry on your clothesline.
