Strategy Using Unown

Unown is a primairily Weak Pokémon so this set is to get as much, so what I did, as opposed to getting advantages, is to make the most powerful Hidden Power possible. Making it a Psychic Type gets an extra boost with STAB, attaching Twisted Spoon gives it ANOTHER boost and if you Max EVs in Special Attack it should get it as powerful as humanly possible. Should be able to topple most Pokémon in one or two hits

EV Corner:

Max out the EVs in Special Attack for Unown with any remaining in HP & Speed

Strategy Against Unown

Unown's Defenses are slightly below average meaning a good powerful hit should severely damage, if not KO this Pokémon
