Welcome to Marriland.com!

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!

Today marks the release of the special Pokémon TCG set, Celebrations, which come in 4-card packs contained within special Celebrations-themed products. You can see a YouTube video featuring some of these products above, which Pokémon were kind enough to send me for review.

This set is meant to commemorate Pokémon’s 25th anniversary and, in addition to the set itself containing numerous “pairs” of legendary Pokémon across all of the Generations—with Pikachu and Mew representing Generation 1, and with Cosmog and Cosmoem both present in Generation 7—it also contains the Classic Collection subset within, which features special Pokémon 25 stamped reprints of iconic, classic cards throughout the series of the Pokémon Trading Card Game, including many cards that left an impact either for competitive players or for old-school collectors.

These products have various other bonuses in them depending on which you get, such as promo cards, figures, coins, binders, and more. A previous post here on Marriland outlines all of these items along with their MSRP so you can figure out which products provide the best value.

Additionally, two new V Battle Decks have been released today—the Rayquaza V and the Noivern V Battle Decks. These each contain a full 60-card prebuilt deck that is ready to play right out of the box and are a good starting point for new players looking to get into the game. Pictures of these can be found down below.

Not only did today bring a new trailer for Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, but it brought a new trailer and a lot of new information for Pokémon Legends: Arceus as well.

The trailer, shown above, showcases several new characters, the ability to change your clothes and take photographs in Jubilife Village, as well as another entirely new Pokémon that evolves from an existing one. You can also ride on certain Pokémon to make traversing the expansive region even easier by using an item received in the game, the Celestica Flute.
