So, if you catch a ! Unown, and you catch another ! Unown, will the Hidden Power types always be the same? And if so, then what type would it be for each symbol?

They aren't specific to a letter. Just about every pokemon learns hidden power; it's type and base power is based on the pokemon's IVs, or Individual values.

Ah. But since Unown's IV's determine it's symbol, wouldn't it make sense that each letter has the same Hidden Power?
That is is only in gen II. In gen III on, it's based on a pokemon's Personality Value, which is yet another hidden value that also determines things like your pokemon's gender.
Ohhhhhhhhhh... Thanks DT!
