There might not be many Pokemon Legends: Arceus Unown to find, but just finding them alone is task enough. There are 28 in total, and they're dotted all over Hisui, lurking in hidden areas that you'll only notice if you're really looking. Thankfully, they're easy to catch, and it feels great when you do spot one. 

Below you'll find the maps for where to find the Unowns in each of the Hisuian areas. Make sure to click the cross in the top right of each map to make it fullscreen. 

Note: You'll need both Braviary and Sneasler unlocked to obtain all of these.

How to catch Unown in Pokemon Legends: Arceus

Catching an Unown is pretty simple in that all you need to do is throw a Pokeball at it. They won't fight it, they'll just go quite happily once you've landed the shot. It's a one hit catch and not a battle in sight. The main difficulty with Unown is first finding them all, and secondly actually aiming the Pokeballs. A lot of them are high up or in awkward spots so arm yourself with plenty of feather balls, which are perfect for Unown hunting.
