Unown

Stats
HP: 48
Attack: 72
Defense: 48
Special Attack: 72
Special Defense: 48
Speed: 48

Type: Psychic

Description: Unown is noted for several things. It has a form based on every letter of the alphabet and some punctuation. It's found in the Ruins of Alph. Finally, it only learns Hidden Power. This is particularly bad for Unown this generation due to the fact that Hidden Power received a nerf. On one hand, Hidden Power no longer lowers derives its Base Power from IVs. On the other hand, it's been lowered from its standard 70 BP to an always low 60 Base Power. This means the only viable Hidden Power for Unown now is Hidden Power Psychic, which it gets STAB on. Unown is already a horrible Pokemon competitively, it did not need this nerf.

Set #1: Choice Specs
Item: Choice Specs
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 4 HP, 252 Atk, 252 Spe
Nature: Modest ( + SpA, - Atk )
Moveset:
Hidden Power Psychic

Set Explanation: This is Unown's best chance at a usable moveset. Choice Specs is far more usable than anything else due to the fact that Unown only has one move. Hidden Power Psychic will OHKO most things that it's super effective against, but really that's not saying much. It could be a nasty surprise for Pokemon such as Throh.

Other Options: Since Unown has no other moves, we're force to look at items for other options. Choice Band is useless since Unown has no physical moves... or any other moves in general. Leftovers is useless because of Unown's non-existent bulk. Choice Scarf is mostly irrelevant due to Unown being so slow. Assault Vest could have some use, but Unown needs all the power that it can get, and it isn't exactly the bulkiest of Pokemon. Weakness Policy is generally useless due to the fact that Unown can't survive a super effective hit coming off anything other than a Weedle. Twisted Spoon is an option, however Choice Specs gives Unown more power than Twisted Spoon.
