Unown @ Choice Specs
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Hidden Power [Psychic]
Why do people up-vote only Pokemaster? Simply because he created this site doesn't mean he knows everything about good movesets.
Perhaps because Unown sucks and only the great and superfabulous Pokemaster can bring out its true potantial (/030)/

Really though, if you look at the date PM's answer was in 2010. The other three are from 2014. Compund that with the aforementioned fact the Unown sucks, Pokemaster already said all there is to say. Considering that his answer amassed an average of 1 upvote every 2 years before the next answer, I wouldn't call it a special case or anything.
I would say the best moveset for unown is:
Hidden Power
Hidden Power
Hidden Power
Hidden Power
Haha the learn set link..

Unown can only learn one move, Hidden Power, which makes it pointless for any kind of battling.

So all you can do is choose a type. Ground and Fighting are super effective against more types, but also have no effect on certain types. The best all round type would be Water or Rock I think.

And yes, Choice Specs would be the ideal choice since you're only using one move anyway.

I'd have to say Hidden Power Ice might be best.
I say it is dragon because it is only weak against steel
and dragon only beats dragon
which there isnt much off
Hidden power Fighting all the way

The best Hidden Power type for Unown is Psychic, because you get STAB.

-Hidden Power (Psychic)

Glass Cannunown @ Life Orb/Choice Specs
EVs: Max Sp.Atk, the rest on Speed
Nature: Timid (+spd -atk)
Moves:
-Hidden Power Ghost

Hidden Power Ghost takes care of those pesky Ghost-types/ other strong Psychic types who try to ruin your fun. But it has trouble with Normal-types, so it may need a good partner or two if in a Double/Triple Battle. Life Orb ensures that even if it's not a STAB Hidden Power, it still gets some form of boost, however at the cost of HP. (it won't last that long anyways!). The Choice Specs are better but I'm not going to bother on getting them from the Battle Maison. The EVs are that high because then it will have at least half-decent stats at lv.100, and the Nature ensures the Speed will be high.
Not the greatest moveset, but only because I'm training my Unown for fun.

You can max 2 EVs on one Pokemon. Besides, why don't you use hidden power dark?
