Why is there no Unown...

, , or ?

I have a Spanish copy of Black, then I realised that there is no Unown .

is it's own letter, so why not?

and are also letters (French and German) so why not those also?

What really doesn't make sence is that this is a Japanese made game, so why do they even make Latin alphabet Unowns? Japanese uses hiragana and katakana, so why aren't the Unowns made from those alphabets?

And finally, if the Japanese want to use the Latin alphabet as templates for Unown, why did they leave out those special characters?

Because they're not real letters. They're letters with slight alterations. That's just cheating and being lazy when making a language!

They should've added Greek letters. Where's my Lambda Unown?

Because there are 26 letters in the ISO basic Latin alphabet as opposed to the 48 monograph hiragana and 47 monograph katakana.

As all Japanese children learn to read and write Romaji in school, it makes far more sense to use the more simplistic writing system.
