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.

The main focus of today’s Pokémon Direct was the Pokémon Sword & Shield Expansion Pass that was announced for the game, bringing in large amounts of new DLC content, adding new Pokémon, and also bringing back over 200 old Pokémon that weren’t present in the Galar region.

The Expansion Passes, which costs US$29.99 each, will unlock two sets of content for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield respectively — The Isle of Armor (June 2020) and The Crown Tundra (Autumn 2020).

Kicking off today’s Pokémon Direct presentation was the announcement of a remaster of the original Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games — Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team (DS) and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team (GBA) — that were released in 2006.

The remaster is called simply Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, and it will be released for the Nintendo Switch on March 6, 2020. The trailer, while short, shows off several memorable scenes from the original games redone in the new style. A demo for the new game will be available later today.

Pokémon Direct - 1.9.2020

Tune in on 1/9 at 6:30 a.m. PT for roughly 20 minutes of new Pokémon information in a livestreamed Pokémon Direct presentation.

Pokémon is kicking off 2020 with a 20-minute livestreamed presentation — a dedicated Pokémon Direct — on January 9, 2020. This live stream will reveal new Pokémon information along with exciting updates coming throughout the year.

What, specifically, will be announced is currently unknown, although 20 minutes is quite long for Pokémon Directs, so it’s quite likely there will be a good amount of information revealed.

If you’d like to know when this is in most time zones, keep reading for a list of this time in most other time zones.
