Catching Chi-Yu

Once all eight blue ominous stakes have been pulled from the ground, you will hear a “mysterious” cry and the shrine door will be able to be opened.

To locate the Firescourge Shrine, head to a cave near the eighth blue stake. The shrine is to the south of the Pokémon Centre in the North Province (Area Two) and you’ll face a prompt that asks if you want to touch the shrine. Selecting yes will see the Legendary Pokémon Chi-Yu released from within. This funny, small goldfish Pokémon is actually a dark/fire type ruinous Pokémon. Use False Swipe to lower its health without knocking it out and ensure plenty of ultra balls, timer balls and quick balls are in your bag.

With a bit of luck, you should be able to catch this legendary Pokémon and add it to your party.
