Firescourge Shrine Guide – Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
Once you complete the main storyline in Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet you unlock endgame content. This content features a number of additional quests you can complete. One quest you can receive is from the History teacher Raifort. If you speak to Raifort in the Entrance Hall of the Naranja/Uva Academy she tells you about Shrines. Following this interaction the four Shrines are marked on your map. Here’s a quick Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Firescourge Shrine guide to help you open one of them.
Where is the Firescourge Shrine?
The Firescourge Shrine is one of four Shrines players can open in the endgame of Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet. This Shrine is located in the western area of Paldea at the very top of the Fury Falls Sight. At the top of the waterfall there is an alcove you can enter that has a tunnel leading to the Shrine entrance.
It’s entrance is marked on your map with the symbol shown on the screenshot above. When you visit this location you find a locked Blue Gate. To open this gate you need to find 8 Ominious Blue Stakes throughout the surrounding area and destroy them.
Where to Find All 8 Ominous Blue Stakes to Open the Firescourge Shrine?
History teacher Raifort explains to you how the stake system works. To open a Shrine you need to find and destroy all 8 of the stakes in that area. To open the Firescourge Shrine you need to find all 8 Ominous Blue Stakes and destroy them. The locations below are where you will find them all.
Ominous Blue Stake 1
Make your way to Levincia. Leave the town by heading northeast towards the lighthouse. Overlooking the lighthouse there is a ledge you can get on top at the map marking shown above. On top of this ledge is a tree with the Ominous Blue Stake by it. Destroy it.
Ominous Blue Stake 2
You will find this Ominous Blue Stake along the southern edge of the Glaseado Mountain. Fly to the Dalizapa Passage Pokecenter and head northwest from there to reach the ledge that has the stake on it. Climb up to the stake and destroy it.
Ominous Blue Stake 3
On the northeast edge of the Tagtree Thicket named area there is a large ledge you can stand on. On this ledge there is a tree. Next to this tree is the Ominous Blue Stake. Destroy it.
Ominous Blue Stake 4
You will find this Ominous Blue Stake at the very top of the mountain above the Firescourge Shrine entrance. There is a small grassy patch at the peak that has the stake on it. Climb up to the stake and destroy it.

This Ominous Black Stake can be found by walking north from where we got the Blue Stake 7. Continue along the shoreline until you reach the location shown on the map above. Here you will find a tree that has the stake beside it. Destroy it.
How to Catch Chi-Yu
Once you’ve destroyed all 8 of the Ominous Blue Stakes list above you will see a short cutscene. During this cutscene you hear the cry of the legendary Chi-Yu coming from the now-open shrine. Before going back there do a little prep to make catching easier:
- Buy battle/catching supplies like Ultra Balls.
- Bring a Pokemon that can inflict status effects.
- Bring a Pokemon that has False Swipe.
- Try and have a party of +60 level.
- Make a save.
After your battle prep is complete, go back to the Firescourge Shrine door. Approach the door and you will be prompted to interact with it. Select Yes to start the battle. Catch Chi-Yu easily using a combination of False Swipe, a status effect like sleep, and Ultra Balls.
Chi-Yu is a Dark/Fire Legendary Pokemon. It is one of four Legendries you can catch by opening the four shrines. See the other shrine guides below for help with those Pokemon.
