Green Bet Locations in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
The Groundblight Shrine stakes have a vibrant green glow, and after you roll all eight, you can catch Ting-Lu in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. What is at stake is scattered throughout the northern provinces of the West, Lake Casseroya and the Socarrat trail.
We recommend unlocking all of Koraidon/Miraidon’s abilities before attempting this side quest. It’s impossible to reach all the stakes without defeating the Open Sky Titan and the False Dragon Titan, because you’ll have to swim and climb a lot before fighting Ting-Lu.
To learn more about the myths surrounding the four Ruinous Pokémon and locate the shrine locations on your world map, complete the history lessons at the Academy and follow Raifort’s story. However, doing so is not a requirement to do what is at stake.
Below you will find the eight green bet locations in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet:
Location of Green Stake 1
This stake is located on the largest island in Lake Casseroya and can be easily reached by flying to Lake Casseroya (Islet). From there, you simply need to head to the east side of the island to find the stake on top of a hill.
Green Stake 2 Location
This stake can be found on top of the smaller island located south of the larger island in Lake Casseroya. You will have to climb to the top of the island and then go down to the ledge on the east side to find the stake.
Location of Green Stake 3
For this game, you need to visit Colonnade Hollow, which is located between Medali and Porto Marinada. The easiest way to find it is to fly to the Colonnade Hollow fast travel point and then climb the pillar about halfway down the cave.
Green Stake 4 Location
We recommend finding this stake after pulling Stake 3 described above, because it is located along the river bank directly north of Colonnade Hollow.
To get to it, go to said river, but do not cross it. Instead, head east past the bridge to find the stake. It is also located directly southwest of Casseroya Watchtower No.1.
Green Stake 5 Location
This stake is on the top of a hill that is located in the southwest corner of Lake Casseroya; It’s basically as far west as you can get on the south shore of the lake!
The quickest way to get there is to fly to the Porto Marinada Pokémon Center and then head directly north; crossing the river and climbing the hills until he finds it.
Follow the lake shore to the west to find this stake.
Green Stake 6 Location
For this game, you need to visit the northwest corner of the terrain surrounding Lake Casseroya. We recommend finding this bet immediately after bet 5, because you won’t have to travel as far compared to the other bets.
To get there, head directly north from where you found Stake 5, going from island to island, until you see a ruined house.
The bonfire is near this ruin.
Now you must climb the hill directly west of said ruin and there you will find the stake on the western side of the hill.
Green Stake 7 Location
You can find a stake on a piece of land that borders both the Socarrat Trail and Glazed Mountain. To get to it you must visit the northeast corner of the trail where you will find a path that will take you up the side of the mountain.
Take the path up the mountain near the Socarrat trail to find this stake.
The stake is located on top of a ledge at the end of the path and you will have to climb to reach it. Be careful once you’re up here, because you can slide down easily.
Green Stake 8 Location
This final bet is located at the top of the waterfall northeast of Medali.
To find it, take the eastern road out of Medali, making sure to follow the path towards Glazed Mountain and stopping when you reach the first waterfall. Now all you have to do is climb up the western side of the cliff until you reach the top of the waterfall and there you will find the stake.
Climb the cliff near this waterfall.
After pulling the eighth stake, a mighty roar will echo through the hills. Now you can head to the Groundblight Shrine and fight Ting-Lu! We recommend stocking up on Ultra Balls and healing items, such as Hyper Potions, beforehand.

Location of Groundblight Shrine in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Groundblight Shrine is located on Socarrat Trail, which is north of Lake Casseroya in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. It is embedded in the south face of the hill that is in the middle of the Camino de Socarrat.
Where to find the Groundblight Shrine.
If you complete the history lessons taught at the Academy and follow Raifort’s story, the shrines will be placed on your world map. This will also allow you to quickly travel to your locations.
To reach the Groundblight Shrine on Pokémon’s back, you can fly to Lake Casseroya (islet) and then swim directly north until you reach a cliff, which you must climb. We will reach the Camino de Socarrat and, from here, we will cross the stream in the southern part of this area.
Fly to Lake Casseroya and then climb the cliff to reach the Socarrat trail.
Explore the area beyond the stream until you find a slope that will take you to the shrine.
If you haven’t unlocked the Casseroya Lake (Islet) fast travel point, you can follow the same instructions by flying to any of the Medali Pokémon Centers or Casseroya Watchtower No. 1. You’ll just have to walk more!
How to catch Ting-Lu in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Ting-Lu is a level 60 Ground and Dark-type Pokémon.
Because of this, it is weak against Bug, Fairy, Fighting, Grass, Ice, and Water-type Pokémon. Electrical and psychic type attacks, however, will have no effect on Ting-Lu.
It’s a good idea to stock up on Ultra Balls and healing items, such as Max Potions, before attempting to catch Ting-Lu.
We recommend placing a Pokémon that has an advantage over Ting-Lu and is at a similar level to your lead Pokémon. This will ensure that you can reduce its health to that special red section without removing it completely.
You can also use Dark, Ghost, and Poison-type attacks, which are ineffective against Ting-Lu, to carefully reduce his health. Just avoid poisoning Ting-Lu – you don’t want him to pass out on his own!
Biting is a good move to use against Ting-Lu, because it can make Ting-Lu flinch.
Paralyzing or putting Ting-Lu to sleep will also help you catch this Pokémon, because Ting-Lu will have a harder time attacking your team.
We caught Ting-Lu with an Ultra Ball, but it took us about 15 balls to do it. For this reason, we started alternating with Timer Balls, which have a higher chance of catching a Pokémon the longer the battle lasts.
Ting-Lu has the ability Vessel of Ruin, which lowers the Special Attack stat of every Pokémon it faces.
Ting-Lu will have the following moveset when you catch him:
|Driven by frustration, the user attacks the target. The power of this move is doubled if the user’s previous move failed.
|The user summons a ruinous disaster. This reduces the target’s HP by half.
|The user attacks the target’s throat and the resulting suffering prevents the target from using sound-based moves for two turns.
|Large rocks are thrown at enemy Pokémon to deal damage. This can also cause the opposing Pokémon to flinch.
Now that you’ve caught Ting-Lu, why not add Chien-Pao, Wo-Chien, or Chi-Yu to your Pokédex?
Or you can take history lessons at the Academy to learn more about the history of these Pokémon. If you’ve been following this mini-story, visit Raifort after capturing all the Ruinous Pokémon for an additional reward.
Good luck catching Ting-Lu!
