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.

Behavior

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.

Evolution

Unown does not evolve.
