Nope.

Choice helmet reduces damage by your opponents Pokémon gx by 30. Since shrine isn’t a Pokémon gx, it won’t reduce damage

Chaotic Swell is probably your best bet. Makes it a lot harder for Shrine to come into play.

More over, Shrine of Punishment places damage counters, as opposed to actually doing damage.

 

Doing damage results in damage counters being placed on a card, but effects that place damage counters don't actually do damage.  It might sound confusing, but it helps if you think of it as steps in a process, with placing damage counters directly skipping the first step that (doing damage).

 

So, again, the entire reason I bring this up is that:

 

  • Choice Helmet reduces the damage taken from attacks by your opponent's Pokémon-GX.
  • Shrine of Punishment is a Stadium with an effect that places damage counters between turns on Pokémon-GX.
