So you’ve come across a few Stakes in Paldea and have learnt what their use is. Now you wish to discover where you can find every Stake location and Shrine to tackle those Ruin Legendary Pokémon. Well, look no further as this page will show you where to find every Orange Stake.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Orange Stakes
|Stake #||Map Marker|
Orange Stake #1
Starting your search at the bottom of the Paldea region, head to South Province (Area Six) and head to this location on the map. You’ll find the stake nestled on the little lip of the large cliff overlooking the river.
Orange Stake #2
Staying in South Province (Area Six), head along the clifftops northeast from Alfornada and you’ll find this stake high on a cliff ledge.
Orange Stake #3
This Orange Stake is close to the previous one but can be tricky to find. Drop down to the ground around here and you’ll find a cave just to the west of the marker. Head inside and you’ll find the stake around the center of this tunnel.
Orange Stake #4
Still in West Province (Area One), this next Stake location is back to the top of a cliff. Climb helps here as you can climb the nearest cliff and head north along it to reach the stake on a cliffside ledge.
Orange Stake #5
Fast Travel to the Pokemon Center at West Province (Area One) - Central and head along the path leading north. Before the bridge, head west and look over the edge of the cliff to spot a crater. The stake can be found inside the crater on a little grass mound surrounded by a moat of water.
Orange Stake #6
Head to the Watchtower in West Province (Area One) and you’ll find yourself at some ruins. Look to the east and you’ll find this stake on top of the grass ledge overlooking the nearby ruins.
Orange Stake #7
This is probably the toughest stake to find, and once again it’s up on the cliffs again. Head east from the previous stake to this location on the map and look inside the nook between the cliffs near to where the Pokémon League is on the map.
Orange Stake #8
The final orange stake is by far the easiest of the lot. Head to Cascarrafa and go to the outskirts of the town to the south, you’ll find the orange stake sitting by a tree.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Orange Shrine Gate
Once you pull up the eighth and final stake, a message will trigger, letting you know something has stirred and you will automatically face the direction of the shrine itself.
If you return to where you found Orange Stake #5 (the one in the crater), head northwest and you’ll find the Orange Shrine Gate along the edge of a cliff. Make sure you’re prepared before going in, however, a battle with Chien-Pao, a Level 60 Ruin Legendary Pokémon awaits.
