Ruins of Alph (Interior A)

Where?

Southwest of Violet City. If you take the southern exit out to Route 32, the ruins are just to your left.

The grass, however, like two of the puzzle chambers, is only accessible through Union Cave. From the Route 32 entrance of the cave, head left and then turn up into the narrow path above. Walk past the Firebreather and go down the stairs on the left. Now surf into the water you see, surf all the way up so you're back on solid ground, and then continue on up, past the Hiker, until you have to turn left. Do so, and then take the upper path left past the other Hiker there. Go up the stairs at the end, surf over the water you see and then go up the stairs in the upper left corner. Exit the cave and walk down into the open building below you (there's a slab of rock over the door to show you where it is), out of it on the right, into the next building and then down to where the grass is.

Notes

There are four puzzle chambers in the ruins, two accessed through Union Cave as described above (one is in the building just above the final one you walk through to get to the grass; the other needs to be accessed by taking the lower path in the last place where the path forks inside the cave) and two accessible by just entering the ruins from Violet City like normal.

The Unown that can be encountered in the main chamber depend on the puzzles you've solved. The Kabuto puzzle unlocks Unown A-J; the Omanyte puzzle unlocks Unown K-Q; the Aerodactyl puzzle unlocks Unown R-V; and the Ho-oh puzzle unlocks Unown W-Z. Other than being restricted to those you've unlocked, the Unown will be random, with no variance in frequency between the individual letters.
