Where to find all the stakes and how to catch Ting-Lu

To get Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s post-game legendary Pokémon, you’ll need to find stakes all over Paldea, then pull them out of the ground. For Ting-Lu, a dark- and ground-type snail Pokémon, you’ll need to grab all the orange/gold stakes in the southwest part of Paldea. Ting-Lu is locked in the Groundblight Shrine.

There are eight stakes to pull out. All you have to do is interact with them. Once you do so, you’ll hear a “mysterious cry,” after which you can interact with the shrine to battle Ting-Lu. It will be at level 60.

The Groundblight Shrine is located in the spot marked below. However, if you grow close to the history professor at school, she will mark these shrines on your map, allowing you to fly directly to them once you visit them the first time. We highly recommend doing that.

Below, we list out all the stake locations for Ting-Lu’s green shrine. We number the stakes for the sake of organization, but you do not have to pull them out in any specific order.

This stake is shorter than the others (it’s a bit more buried by the snow), and it overlooks the fall-themed forest where the mountain meets the forest.
