Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black2 & White2.

I thought this would be an interesting subject. Each Unown represents a letter or one of two symbols (! and ?). They are unable to be caught legitimately at all in Unova. So to get one, you have to import them.

Since most players don't typically have a use for all 28 Unown in Unova - particularly because they learn exactly one move - my question is what Unown did you or would you choose to import? This is kind of like a "what's your letter" deal, but one could have another reason for choosing an Unown; it looks the most like a Pokémon, or perhaps stands for the first letter in Pokémon, or maybe even the start of your real name or nickname.

So...what Unown are you? What represents you alphabetically in Unova?

Cyclone

(Note for moderators: I've placed this thread here because Unova is the only place Unown cannot be caught since their introduction in Gen. II. Thus, it doesn't fit General in terms of theme because they can be caught in those other games. This is strictly a perspective of what people used in Unova or would use as their Pokédex entry if they were to import one from another game, and is also a case of curiosity on my part.)

I'd probably take an R G or W, since those are my initials. :D

I'd do M because it's the first letter of my real name, or maybe G as that was the first Unown letter I ever saw.

Myself, I'm thinking either C (I don't think I need to explain this one), but I might use P. I mean, it starts the word Pokémon. However, F looks the most like a Pokémon and seems to have a mouth shaped there, unlike many others.

Probably W because its my first name's first letter, Z cuz its an awesome letter, or a symbol. Wish they had a better use in unova tho, they seemed so mysterious when I first saw them...

I would take an H for Hate because I hate Unown and will never use one. They look cool and all, but are useless.

I pick A because it's the first initial of my name, could stand for Azalea, and it looks like a little Eiffel Tower Pokemon ;u;

I'd choose either ! or ? since they'd be awesome trading bait in negotiations (well, as awesome as an Unown can physically be...), plus they're the ones I'm most likely to use if I ever do want to try out Unown on my team since they look pretty quirky. I'm unlikely to transfer one over at all though since it's really not a Pokémon that interests me and I'm not fussed about Pokédex completion, so I don't think I'd actually have a letter haha.

I'd probably choose B, because it's my first initial (and my favorite of the Unown). If I couldn't, my secondary choice would be Unown ?, just because I think was a neat idea when they added the two extra Unown in Gen III.

^^I'd transfer either a ! or ? unown too. Those ones are the funkiest, and the most fun I guess. Especially the !. I love how it should be showing a lot of emotion since it's an exclamation point, but it's just disinterested. Lol

I'd transfer in the H Unown. I nicknamed all the Unown (first letter matching their letter) in Gold and I named H as Happy. How resouceful. :P

I really don't know... I'd probably import all or none. If i had to choose one, it would probably be F.
