Where unown fits in the game

In light of unown spawn rates at Japan and Europe, could unown’s incredibly rare spawn rate be due to Niantic using them as ‘event pokemon’? As in you would have to travel to events like go fest or pikachu outbreak to collect all the unown, similar to collecting regionals?

Definitely man, look at this one I got in Germany (thanks to the Safari Zone)

People were catching 60-80 Unown a day! It was ridiculous…

Wow that is certainly crazy :open_mouth: That spawn rate makes it seem like it appears almost as much as pidgey lol

Trust me, there are people at the events that are annoyed by them now. I have caught 300, and the novelty wears off because of this.
