Unknown Pokemon

What happens if you catch all the unknowns? I think if you catch all of them there will be two special ones which are the Question Mark Unknown and Exclamation Unknow. Is this correct?

Well thats not correct, but I know what happens: When you catch all the unknowens you go to the forest with the statues in it and you press A on 1 of the statues and Celebi appears so you can catch it.

how do you do it in pokemon vortex v2?

Guest said: 13th May 2013 | REPORT
1. Celebi is Unobtainable in silver/gold/crystal aside through cheating. 2. ? and ! Unown were added in Gen IV. and 3. All it does is nothing in silver/gold and you wasted your time

I know that there are two unown, that are punctuation marks (question and exclamation) and I do think to get them you need all 26 others... But I don't know for sure...

In order too get the two symbol unknowns you first need to collect all of the other unknowns, then once you have collected all of those unknown you are able to get the symbols. Once you have all of the unknown you are then able to catch celebii if I am correct. Eaither that, or you don't get anything at all.

The ? And ! Unknown don't appear in this game. They DONT appear untill Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. Anyway I don't think that anything happens if and when you catch them.

i have caught them all. no special pokemon appears. in the d/p/pt series the ! and ? appear in a cave that a digger digs cuz he makes a bet that he can dig a tunnel to a cave before you can catch all the alpha unknowns. he dosnt finish till you catch a-z. then in that cave is 1 and ?. so catching all unknowns just leads to more unknowns. then nothing

I have done this with Crystal. Catching all of them IN ORDER will result in Celebi appearing at the statue. Not sure if it works in Silver or Gold though.

I dont think that anthing happans but, when you catch celebi u need the GS ball which you get from an event.

But try and use the unown to spell out CELEBI, put it into ur party and then go to the shrine and talk to it c if it will appear, just saying cos there has to b special to catch all the unown?

I have Soul Silver for DS but it's not much different. I have just caught the ? And ! Pokemon in the DS version. There are most likely some in the GB version... Anyway I'm trying to figure out if you get a legendary, but I don't think you do. I think you just get a 'good job' and that's it. I'm pretty sure I did all that for nothing.

Once you have collected ALL the UNNOWN'S, You need to CRACK the name CELEBI from your pokedex Unown section,
Once you know which one is "celebi" take him as 1st Pokemon,THIS SHOULD REVEAL CELEBI, tho Pokemon Blue had 152 pokemons instead of 151 like pokedex said.

In Silver/Gold nothing happens when all 26 Uknown are caught. In Platinum/Diamond/Pearl you must do the bet with the digger, the digger than finishes once you caught all 26. Afterwards you must catch the 2 remaining which are (!)(?). Once that is done, you will be taking underground where Giratina is located at.

You are all dumb, when you catch all unknowns, the ruin maniac near veilstone finishes his excavation, go through it and catch the last two unknown and if you look hard enough, you find a hippopitus

In soul silver you must catch all 26 (like the alphabet) UNOWN. In order to achieve this you must crack the codes for all 4 of the little temples in the ruins. The ruin at the top right, you go in and all the way to the code on the wall. Use a escape rope to unlock it, trust me. Bottom right temple, you go in and all the way to the code on the wall. Have a Pokemon use the TM FLASH. This will unlock this temple. For the upper left temple you must have the Pokemon HO-OH first in your party then you select the wall. To unlock the bottom left temple (water stone needed) go to the walls code and select a water stone from your items and select "use". This is last to unlock the 4 temples. If you have all 26 UNOWN and manage to unlock all 4 temples you've released the ? And ! UNOWN. Firstly you must go back to the research lab next to the ruins and speak to the man in the upper right. Keep talking to him until he says if he finds out anything new he'll let you know. Go back to the main middle temple (isn't considered one of the 4, has the ladder and photographer man in it) then go towards a golden plate in the wall. The lab man will run in and tell you to go back to the lab with him to talk. After you do go back to this middle temple (don't go down ladder) and walk around the room until ? And ! Jump out to you, then capture them!

Well in the GBA version there was no ? And ! Symbols. They appered in the later version when Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Heartgold and Soulsilver came out.
In D/P/P, the ruin maniac who is digging a tunnel reaches the other side when you catch all 26 letters of Unown. In that room you can find ?/! Unown. Also in the room you find 4 rare and valuable items. There is also a tablet inscribed with the history of something on it. No legendaries or anything special here.
Hg/Ss have a simillar approach. When you find 26 symbols for the Unown you unlock a final chamber where only the ?/! Exist. In here there is once again the history of the Unown and the humans who lived there. A few special and rare items down there too. Now there are no legendaries when this is completed. However, the event Arceus for Hg/Ss reacts in these ruins when you have all 28 symbols. (Or you might not need any even) When you talk to the researcher, Arceus teleports you to another realm. The background has many hieroglyphs of Unown and famous battles throughout Pokemon history. (Like Groudon vs Kyogre. Mew vs Mewtwo. Palkia vs Dialga. And a few other important scenes like the creation of Mew, Mewtwo and Darkrai etc. It resembles the Hall Of Origin in the Pokemon Dungeon Explorer scene.) In this realm Palkia, Dialga and Giratina stand infront of you. Each are level 1, know a special move and you can only pick one. When you do, you battle the rest with your new chosen pokemon. If you win, (odds are tipped a bit as noone has a dragon move except for Palkia.) you keep the chosen Pokemon (and possibly the others). So hopefully this cleared up any confusion.
Oh yeah with the GBA version Celebi was attained differently, I believe it was some form of event triggring Pokemon. Like a Pokemon with a modified game code to unlock something. But that Pokemon was infact an Unown with both ?/! Symbols. (You got two)
Sources: Played every one, got all unown, went to every event.
