Chi-Yu is one of the many Legendary Pokémon that you can catch in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Tracking him down can be a bit tricky because you’ll need to complete quite a few quests before you can get to his shrine. Once you unlock it, you’ll need to be careful and make sure you catch it to add this Pokemon to your collection. Here’s what you need to know about where to find Chi-Yu in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
How to catch Chi-Yu in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Before you can catch up with Chi-Yu, you will need to remove all the blue stakes in the Paldea area. There are eight of them scattered around the area, and it will take some time to track them down. We recommend doing this after you have unlocked all upgrades for your carrier by completing the Path of Legends missions featuring Titans. That should make finding these dangers and accessing their locations much easier. Once you collect the bets, the Qi Yu Shrine will be unlocked.

Chiyu Shrine is located south of the Pokémon Center in the Northern Province’s second region. You’ll want to travel to the mountains just south of that area, where the lilac-like rocks are. You need to find a cave to the right of the waterfall, and inside you will find the shrine. You can interact with the shrine and encounter Qi Yu. If you catch it, you can use this Pokemon in future battles and train it for additional encounters.
Chiyu is a dark and fiery Pokémon. It will be weak against the movements of water, combat, land and rocks. It is resistant to the attacks of Fire, Grass, Ice, Ghost, Darkness and Steel. He is immune to psychic attacks. We recommend that you destroy them carefully as you encounter them, and rely on using Ultra Balls in an attempt to catch them.
