The #1 thing people screw up with unicycle maintenance is putting the wheel back in backwards (or the seat on backwards), which then destroys the cranks and/or pedals. Be aware of the marking on your left pedal (usually there's a knurling or scoring on the left one), as well as the L/R markings on the cranks.

The second thing is that the bearing holders need to be snug but not tight; most people over-tighten them until they know better. I hand-tighten them, and then add another quarter or half-turn of the wrench.

The actual tools, others have covered; you don't need much for a uni.
