There are 8 Purple Stakes that you can find in Pokemon: Scarlet and Violet. These are needed to open Glasswither Shrine that holds the Legendary Pokemon, Wo-Chien. You can collect these Purple Stakes at any point in the game but do note that some of these require you to have the ‘Climb’ ability unlocked. In this Pokemon: Scarlet and Violet guide, we’ve shared the locations of all 8 Purple Stakes to battle Wo-Chien.
Purple Stake #1
You need to travel a little south from the Pokemon Centre in Los Platos to get to a tall cliff with the Purple Stake at the very top.
Purple Stake #2
This one is also on top of a cliff but near the north-east of the Pokemon Centre in Los Platos.
Purple Stake #3
From the Pokemon Centre in Los Platos, keep on heading in the north-east direction until you come to a spiral-ish mountain on the map — the Purple Stake should be at the very top of the cliff.
Purple Stake #4
You need to keep on going to the north of the Pokemon Centre in Los Platos to reach a bridge leading to another area. It should be a near the left side of the bridge.
Purple Stake #5
After collecting the previous Purple Stake, cross the bridge to reach the cliffs and it should be on one of the mounds there.
Purple Stake #6
From the previous one, you need to head further north-east until you get to the edge of South Province. Once there, you should be able to find it on top of a cliff.
Purple Stake #7
This one is directly behind the Pokemon Centre in Artazon.
Purple Stake #8
The last one is located directly above Glasswither Shrine.
Once you’ve collected all 8 Purple Stakes, you need to head over to Glasswither Shrine and battle the Legendary Pokemon, Wo-Chien.
