Although the Marriland Team Builder worked just fine for Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl even before this update, it would show an “unavailable in Sword/Shield” message next to any Pokémon in BDSP that wasn’t in Sword/Shield. With the update, when in Gen. 8 mode, it will show a ✅ for either BDSP or Sword/Shield if it is available in that game or a ❌ if it is not.
This should hopefully make it easier to see if your desired team is compatible with either game at a glance!
Hopefully there are no problems with this update, but if there are, feel free to reach out to me on Twitter to let me know so I can fix them as soon as possible!
The Marriland Pokédex has been updated to handle Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl as well. For Pokémon that exist in both games, you’ll find a toggle to switch between its learned moves for BDSP or for Sword/Shield; for Pokémon that exist only in one set of games, it will only show moves for those games.
Locations for Pokémon in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are not yet added to the Pokédex. Apologies for that! They should be in a future update, but having access to the learned moves was something very important to add right away.
There will likely be a few bugs or problems that spring up from this update, so if you spot any, please feel free to reach out to me over on Twitter and I will try to get them fixed!
Walkthrough Coming Next
Now that these very important updates are done, the next step for the Marriland website is to begin work on the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl walkthrough! I hope to have it started within the next day or two and will be sure to update it frequently. Again, thank you for your patience, and I hope that the content for the Marriland website will help you enjoy Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl!
For more than a year now, development on a major improvement to the Marriland website has been underway, following last year’s release of the Isle of Armor from the Pokémon Sword & Shield Expansion Pass. There were many development issues that needed to be worked out in order to not just accommodate this new update, but also pave the way to accommodating older and future generations as well.
At long last, “The Big Update” is now live, and it provides a massive overhaul to both the Pokédex and the Marriland Team Builder. You can check them out by clicking their respective links, or you can read on for some of the new features that were added to each.
Hello everyone, and apologies for the lack of updates on the site over the past few months! It’s definitely been a challenging series of months for a lot of us, with the ongoing worldwide issues. That has caused me to shift my focus over providing entertainment on my YouTube and Twitch channels to help people get through some tough times.
While there is still a lot going on in the world and we’re not out of the woods yet, my focus now is on the Marriland website, and updating it over the next few months. In the immediate future, hopefully by the end of this weekend, I hope to have the Isle of Armor Pokémon added to the site’s Pokédex and the Team Builder. This has been something I’ve been working on behind the scenes over the past few days but it will still take a little bit of time to make sure it’s done right.
I ask for your patience during this time, but I also look forward to providing you a really nice, mobile-friendly Pokédex covering the Isle of Armor’s new additions! I mostly wanted to make sure that you have an idea of what to expect and that this is absolutely something I am working on for the site, even if the data is not up yet.
This weekend, I (Marriland) will be taking part in Pokéthon — a three-day charity stream event benefiting Direct Relief, which is a humanitarian aid organization focused on bettering the lives of those affected by poverty, natural disasters, humanitarian crises, emergencies, and much more by providing them access to medicine, healthcare, and other relief.
You can find out more about Direct Relief and Pokéthon by clicking the links above, and you can watch the charity stream directly over at Twitch.tv/TheJWittz. There will be 12 hours of streams each day, from 12pm–12am PST, and all sorts of Pokémon games and fun activities will take place during this time. 17 Pokémon content creators from across the internet are all participating in this charity marathon, so you’re not going to want to miss it.
This update isn’t a news update, but a general update post about the work that has been done on the site, as well as what is planned for the immediate- and short-term future. I’d also like to give a proper introduction for those of you that are new, and to say thank you to those of you that have used the site. Feel free to read on if you’re interested in hearing what I have to say.
