Welcome to the new Marriland website! This Pokémon fansite has been around since 2000 in various forms, and after a brief hiatus, it has now relaunched. I have big plans for the site throughout 2019 in beyond, especially with Pokémon Sword & Shield right around the corner.
Look forward to the return of the Marriland Team Builder, the Marriland Pokédex, various Pokémon Walkthroughs and Guides, and lots more over the coming months! You can check out the site's Development Roadmap to get an idea of the timeline of all of the features coming to the site. In the meanwhile, I hope you will enjoy checking back regularly for new updates on the site as well as news about Pokémon!
The fearsome Giratina is returning to Pokémon GO Raid Battles in its Altered Forme from Thursday, March 28 at 1:00pm PDT (GMT-7) through Tuesday, April 2 at 1:00pm (GMT-7).
After that point, Giratina will fight Trainers in its Origin Forme in Raid Battles instead. Origin Forme Giratina will then be available in Raid Battles until Monday, April 29th at 1:00pm (GMT-7).
This Saturday, March 23, 2019, from 3:00pm to 6:00pm in your local time zone, Treecko will be the star of the show in March’s Pokémon GO Community Day.
During these three hours, Treecko will be very common and much easier to catch, and it should presumably have a greater chance of it appearing as a Shiny — as is the case with most Community Days.
If you evolve Grovyle — Treecko’s evolution — during the three-hour window and up to one hour afterwards, it will know the event-only move Frenzy Plant as a Sceptile.
Lastly, throughout the event, Incubators will receive a massive boost, hatching Eggs that were placed in them during the event four-times faster than usual, which is a great way to get a bunch of Eggs hatched.
It’s taken a ton of work and research, but I’m pleased to present to you the newest guide on the Marriland website: the EV Training Guide! It will teach you all you need to know about Effort Values and how they can improve your gameplay.
In case you’re unfamiliar with what “EV Training” is, it’s a process of training your Pokémon up to optimize their stats to their full potential. All competitive Pokémon players are familiar with EV Training, so the guide will not only help newer players learn about EV Training, but also provide a reference for players of any skill level as to where to go to EV Train in any game.
Spring is nearly upon those in the northern hemisphere, while Autumn has almost arrived down in the southern hemisphere. To celebrate this change of seasons, Pokémon GO will be featuring Grass-type Pokémon front and center from March 19, 2019 at 1:00pm PDT (8:00pm GMT) through March 26, 2019 at 1:00pm PDT (8:00pm GMT).
Beginning March 25, 2019, Defense Forme Deoxys will appear as an EX Raid boss available for Trainers packing EX Raid Passes. Deoxys itself is a Mythical Pokémon, but it is has several different forms. Defense Forme is one such form and packs much greater defensive capability than its Normal Forme.
In order to be eligible for an EX Raid, you’ll need an EX Raid Pass, which you have a chance at receiving after clearing a Raid Battle at a qualifying Gym. The EX Raid Pass lists the time and date of the EX Raid event and you’ll need to be there at the given time in order to participate.
