Chi-Yu is one of the four Legendary Pokémon of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Due to the ruinous nature of their creation, these Legendary Pokémon have been kept sealed behind shrines held by stakes that have been scattered across parts of the Paldea region.
In this guide, we will go through all the locations where these stakes and the shrine sealing Chi-Yu can be found.
Chi-Yu Stakes and Shrine Locations
There are a total of 8 blue stakes scattered in the northeastern region of Paldea. Every 2 stakes pulled out from the ground will remove one of the 4 chains sealing the blue shrine. After pulling the final stake, a Pokémon’s cry can be heard from a distance, and your character will face towards the direction of where the cry came from.
Head towards the shrine and touch it to release the sealed Pokémon inside and a battle will then start. The Pokémon can be captured as normal and if they are defeated, they will be sent back into the shrine; you will have to wait for at least an in-game day before you can challenge them again.
Recommendation: It is best to start finding all the stakes and the shrine, as well as encountering Chi-Yu, only after getting all the Herba Mystica from the Path of Legends to make navigation easy and possible, and after defeating the 8 gyms of the Victory Road to raise its catch rate.
