Welcome to Marriland.com!

Welcome to the new Marriland website!

Even more will be added as time goes on, but I hope you will enjoy this mobile-first Pokémon website with a whole lot of heart, and I hope you'll find what you're looking for here.

The Pokémon Diamond & Pearl remakes weren’t the only new things teased during the Pokémon Presents live stream, nor were they the only things taking place in the Sinnoh region.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a new game in the Pokémon series, set in the Sinnoh region’s past, long before it had become widely settled by humans. Only one small settlement of people appear to be in the Sinnoh region in this game, and you’ll be able to explore the region in its earlier days in this Action RPG take on a Pokémon game, planned for a worldwide release in early 2022.

The newest Pokémon TCG special expansion set, Shining Fates, released worldwide on Friday, and the main way to get cards from this massive set featuring over 100 Shiny Pokémon is by buying the various Shining Fates products.

Yesterday, Marriland unboxed and did a thorough review of the Shining Fates Elite Trainer Box, which is a good starting point if you want to read up on the set. That’s not the only product that offers Shining Fates booster packs in it, though, so today Marriland will be taking a look at one of the three Shining Fates Tins, the Shiny Cramorant Tin, sent for review from The Pokémon Company International. You can watch the unboxing in the video above, or keep reading to see some additional thoughts and pictures of the tin and its contents.
