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!
A lot of work has gone into the Marriland website over the past several months, though most of it has been behind the scenes, working on a new engine that will eventually house the site’s Pokédex and other tools. One of the most popular and most useful features on the Marriland website is the Pokémon Team Builder, which can be used to help plan teams and check for party-wide weaknesses and resistances.
I’m pleased to announce that the Team Builder has received a MASSIVE update (v5.0.0) that should make it much easier to use. It also has added support for all of the officially-revealed Pokémon in Pokémon Sword & Shield, so if there are any officially-revealed Pokémon you would like to include on a potential team, you can include them.
A new official trailer for Pokémon Sword & Shield has been revealed today and it showcases a lot of new quality-of-life upgrades for gameplay, especially the process of raising competitive Pokémon for battle.
Additionally, there’s an increased chance of finding Gigantamax Butterfree in Max Raid Battles from November 15, 2019 through early January 2020, and an Online Competition — Galar Beginnings — which takes place from December 6–8, 2019.
The final set in the Pokémon TCG: Sun & Moon series, Sun & Moon—Cosmic Eclipse, has been released today. This gargantuan set contains over 236 cards, including 9 more TAG TEAM Pokémon-GX, 7 more Pokémon-GX, and more than 20 Trainer cards, some of which are special Trainer TAG TEAM cards.
You can see some of the new cards down below, including the secret rares, which contain prominent human characters from the Pokémon series on the artwork of the card.
Starting tomorrow, November 1, 2019, the US Pokémon Center website will begin stocking a wide selection of special holiday-themed Pokémon merchandise that will help US Trainers get into the holiday spirit.
These items include plushies, decor, stockings, string lights, and ornaments, among other things — yes, even the obligatory uglysweaters .
Pokémon Sword & Shield are less than a month away, but that hasn’t stopped new information on the games from being released. Today, five new special Gigantamax Forms were unveiled: Gigantamax Charizard, Gigantamax Pikachu, Gigantamax Eevee, Gigantamax Meowth, and Gigantamax Charizard. You can see all of them in the trailer above and can find out more information about them down below.
