Herbaris appears in the first room as a statue and will not awaken unless the player has the Forest Crystal. However, it cannot be reached due to fallen pillars and ledges. The player must go through the Cave of Earth if they want to reach Herbaris, and explore the rest of the shrine.
The Wooded Shrine is a temple-like building in the southeast area of the Rinto region. It is very run down and overgrown, and even has tall grass and trees growing in some areas. It has three floors, one above ground and two basements, and requires the use of Cut, Rock Smash and Strength to navigate. An entrance from the Cave of Earth is located on the lowest level. The wild Pokémon that can be found inside the shrine are mostly Grass, Ground and Rock-type.
