Where to find all purple stakes in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Although there are 32 stakes for you to find, you only need to focus on tracking down the purple ones for this collection. Many of them are in the southern hemisphere of Paldea. We do recommend you make sure to complete each of the Titan quests in the Path of Legend to make it easier to reach these locations.
