How to catch Chi-Yu: all blue stake locations in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

There are four new legendary Pokémon hidden behind massive seals in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Not only do these creatures present a tough challenge, but each is also a fantastic addition to your Pokémon roster if you're able to catch one. First, though, you will need to jump through a few hoops to have a chance at fighting one. Chi-Yu may look like the least impressive of the legendaries, but that's far from the truth. Here's how to catch Chi-Yu in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

How to catch Chi-Yu

Chi-Yu is hiding behind the Firescourge Shrine that will initially be locked. The only way to open it up is to first collect eight Blue Ominous Stakes from the surrounding area.

Step 1: Collect all eight blue stakes. Use the map below to locate each one. Once you pull the final stake, you'll hear a mysterious cry coming from a shrine.

Step 2: Chi-Yu's shrine is in the northeast part of the map (Area Two) by the Fury Falls landmark.

If you complete all of the history classes at school and continue speaking with Ms. Raifort afterward, she will eventually tell you the old Paldean fairy tale about the Ruinous Quartet and mark the location of the Firescourge Shrine and other shrines on your overworld map.

If you've been a poor student and haven't finished your classes, we've marked the location here for you as well. Just make sure your Ride Pokémon has the ability to climb to reach the shrine.

Step 3: Chi-Yu is a level 60 Dark/Fire-type. It will be immune to all Psychic attacks, and vulnerable to Fighting, Ground, Rock, and Water types. As always, be cautious with how strong a Pokémon you send out if you intend on catching it. The last thing you want to do is accidentally knock it out.

All Legendary Pokémon locations in Scarlet and Violet: The Indigo Disk
Three legendary Pokemon stand tall in Pokemon: The Teal Mask.

Even if you're not the type of trainer who wants to completely fill out their Pokédex, basically everyone is drawn to catching the Legendary Pokémon. These are some of the most powerful and iconic monsters in the series, and with the final DLC for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, called The Indigo Disk, adding in the last batch for generation nine, there's even more to hunt down around Blueberry Academy.

Unlike older titles where you just needed to go hunt down these majestic Pokémon, this time the process is a bit more complicated. Get your Pokéballs ready because we have some Legendaries to catch!
How to find every Legendary
Legendary monsters won't show up at all in The Indigo Disk until you've completed the main story and begun the postgame. Once you've rolled credits, head back to Blueberry Academy and speak to the Director to get a small tutorial on Special Coaches. Once that's over, he will also tell you about a mysterious man outside the academy. This is Snackworth, and will be the one to direct you to the Legendary creatures.

How to evolve Dipplin in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: The Indigo Disk
A freshly evolved hydrapple in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

We had plenty of oddball Pokémon designs by the time we got to generation nine with Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and they only get weirder with new evolutions. Applin, and its evolution, Dipplin, are the perfect examples of this, but The Indigo Disk DLC wasn't ready to move on from this fruity monster. Hydrapple is the new final form for this Pokémon and it has an oddly cryptic evolution method compared to most others, even Duraludon. It's a tall order, but this is what you need to do to evolve Dipplin in The Indigo Disk.

Applin was included in the base Pokémon Scarlet and Violet game, but the first evolution was added in The Teal Mask DLC. If you didn't figure out how to reach that second form, all you need to do is feed one a Syrupy Apple item to trigger an evolution. These can be purchased for 500 Pokédollars at the Mossfell Confluence shop in Kitakami.
