How to open Groundblight Shrine

In different parts of the Paldea region, you can find four Shrines, which contain four Legendary Pokemon. Although, in theory, you can open them at the beginning of the game, in reality, it will be almost impossible. The keys for these Shrines are in locations players cannot reach unless their Koraidon or Miraidon has learned abilities such as Fly, Swim, and Glide.

But first of all, you must find the Shrines. Of course, you can just explore every tricky corner of the map. But why, if there is an easier way? All you need to do is take a history class at Naranja Academy or Uva Academy.

It is one of the new features that Game Freak has added to Scarlet and Violet. You can learn new facts about the region and get rewards by taking various classes. Also, you can make friends with teachers to get even more.

And as you probably already understood, one of the teachers will help you find the locations of all the Shrines. To do this, you must attend all history lessons and max friendship level with Ms. Raifor. As a reward, she will mark all the Shrines on your map.

The Groundblight Shrine location is in the northwest of the Paldea region. Go around or swim across Casseroya Lake to reach a small rock. At its foot, you can find the Shrine you need. After that, you will be able to fast-travel to it at any time.

It is a Dark- and Ground-type Legendary Pokemon, so Water, Ice, Fighting, Bug, Grass, and Fairy-type Pokemon are the best choices for battle.
