The newly introduced Legendary Pokemon pack includes Chi-Yu in SV. This Legendary Pokemon is made up of fire and is part of the Dark Quartet in the region of Paldea. It creates a sea of lava and burns its enemies to the ground.

There is no evolution for Chi-Yu, and you need to acquire it by obtaining 8 Blue stakes from the different areas of Paldea in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. So, naturally, you need to be aware of the locations of all stakes.

The guide is crafted to provide details about all the locations, solving where to find this Pokemon and how to catch it.

Chi-Yu location in Pokemon SV

To begin your quest for the blue stakes and Chi-Yu, you must have the Climb ability. You need to defeat the False Dragon to obtain the ability. This ability will help you in exploring the areas to collect the stakes.

The first Blue Stake is located on the top of the green area right next to the entrance point of Area three in East Province. Move toward the northeast side from Levincia and collect the blueish glooming stake.

Next, move toward Area Two in the North Province. You will find the stake on a path between the rock and a small wall. Move toward the Blue light below the roof made up of bricks.

The third Blue Stake is found by moving toward the North Side from North Province Area Two. You will see a lake next to the waterfall, climb it, and reach its top. There, you will find the stake on a little green patch.

For the Fourth stake moves forward toward Area One of North Province. There will be a station with an NPC and round-shaped roof with a red outer surface. Climb the mountain right on the station’s Northside and obtain the stake.

The Fifth Stake is located again on top of a mountain but in Area One of the North Province. You need to climb using your climbing ability.

From Area One of North Province, move toward the area’s west side. Just before arriving at the lake, you could see the stake below the giant tree. On your opposite side, the Tagree Thicket area exists.

To find the second last stake, you need to go West toward the ending area of Tagree Thicket. Reach the mountainous areas and climb the mountain halfway through. There you will find the next stake present on the green grass.

The last Blue Stake is located further North of Area One of North Province. Toward the North-East ending area of Glesado Mountain. Explore the green area, and you will find it next to a small rock.

How to catch a Chi-Yu

After obtaining all eight stakes:

  1. Go to the Fury Falls in Area One in North Province.
  2. Climb the mountain between the two waterfalls and reach the point from where the water is coming.
  3. Follow the water path into the small cave; you will see a vast blue-colored gate on your left.

Battle out Chi-Yu and use a Quick Ball to catch it. This Pokemon is an excellent asset against fire, grass, ice, ghost, dark, steel, and psychic attacks.

Chi-Yu Type, Abilities, and Weakness 

Chi-Yu is a dual-type Pokemon possessing both parts of Dark and Fire. This makes it a potential opponent against Ghost, Psychic, and Steel-Type Pokemon. However, it is weakened by Fighting, Ground, Rock, and Water-Type. 

This Pokemon possesses the Beads of Ruin ability. This ability lowers the opponent’s Special Defense by 25% and grants it immunity against opposing Beads of Ruin.
