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 and now has helpful resources for Pokémon Sword & Shield, including a complete Galar Region Pokédex, the powerful Team Builder to help you plan out your team and find its strengths and weaknesses, an ongoing Sword & Shield Walkthrough, and several useful guides including a Shiny Hunting Guide and EV Training Guide.

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. Be sure to follow @Marriland on Twitter for updates, subscribe to Marriland on YouTube for new videos, and follow Marriland on Twitch for the occasional (usually non-Pokémon) livestream. You can also support Marriland.com over on Patreon.

Two-pack of V Battle Decks featuring Gardevoir V and Victini V on the packaging.

Today, two special new V Battle Decks—featuring Victini V and Gardevoir V—have been released and are available for purchase. These decks contain promo versions of either Victini V or Gardevoir V, and unlike normal preconstructed theme decks which do not usually contain cards like Pokémon V cards, these ones do, which is nice.

Each of these decks contain a prebuilt standard 60-card deck, damage counters, a coin, deckbox, playmat, rulebook, and a Quick Guide “to help players learn winning strategies.”

Not only that, but there’s also a two-pack version available, the V Battle Deck—Victini vs. Gardevoir bundle, that contains both of the two decks, as well as eight additional Trainer cards, including two foil cards, so this is a better deal if you’re looking to get both anyway or if you have a buddy you’d like to learn the Pokémon TCG with.

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.
