encoding should be utf-8.  It is the default for python 3.x and arcgis Pro as well

I found a discussion on this topic on Stackoverflow, where someone else had the same problem. 

I'm posting a link to the python docs thy post references below. I didn't want to paste a link to the post itself (I know people have security concerns) so I'm pasting images below that get to the "good parts" of the post.  The first is a description of the problem, the second the suggested solution:
