Effect

The Unown Report records the different forms of Unown caught by the player.

As more Unown forms are captured, the researchers learn more about the Unown and the history of the ruins. Whenever the researchers make discoveries, the player will make note of them in the Report. After capturing the 26 alphabetical Unown forms, opening the hidden rooms in each of the four stone panel chambers, and completing Page 7 of the Unown Report, the ! and ? forms start to appear in the ruins' main chamber and must be caught to complete the research.

Found a strange puzzle in the ruins. Solved it, and suddenly a hole opened up in the ground and I dropped into the room below! Should have known that ancient ruins would have surprising tricks like that.

There was a stone statue where I fell. The place might have been a reception hall. Then, suddenly, the Unown appeared. That puzzle was like a key somehow. It woke the Unown up from their sleep. These ruins have become difficult.

If you turn on the radio in the ruins, you can receive mysterious radio waves! It's proof that the Unown communicate with each other using radio waves!

There are as many Unown as there are letters in the alphabet. Right now, we're confirming the existence of 26 kinds of Unown. Do you think you can find all 26 of them?

It seems that individually they don't make much sense, but when the various Unown are arranged in order, they begin to make sense. In nature, they seem to be scattered around randomly, but the truth is they're arranged in a very specific order.

In this report, the scattered Unown were sorted and put into order by the research-center staff. That makes the Unown much easier to understand.

Scratched on the floor of the ruins are Unown letters. Finding the room feels like a huge discovery! The Researchers were very excited and said they were going to go check it out.

There aren't just 26 different kinds of Unown, Two more have been discovered! But that begs the question of where those other two kinds are hiding...

The characters found scratched on the floor in the small room are transcribed here in this report.

Unown Text
                 Our friends look
                up and heartily
                congratulate us

We don't know what this could possibly mean yet.

The Researchers were saying they'll need to examine the ruins again, but...?

In the past, it seems that Unown lived with relatives of humans in these ruins. In the lower levels of these ruins is a Pokémon statue. We've come to understand that it was those relatives who made that statue.

The Unown are very timid creatures, so they don't go outside the ruins. Even if a bunch of people gathered near the ruins, it is said that the ones who wished for Unown and humans to again coexist have all left.
