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 Pokémon Company International has posted a new video to YouTube today, nearly two weeks after the launch of Pokémon Sword & Shield, showcasing the evolutions of each of the starter Pokémon. They’ve also released the official artwork of these evolutions.

The video above contains details on Zacian and Zamazenta as well, including their types and some of their exclusive moves. It also has information on Gigantamax Snorlax as well as the upcoming Pokémon Sword & Shield TCG set.

All of this information has already been known, but it is nice to see it officially revealed, and to see the artwork for the starter evolutions. You can see this artwork, along with various screenshots, down below.

Gigantamax Snorlax

The Pokémon Company International revealed some more information on Pokémon Sword & Shield today, and one bit of information is increased chances of encountering Gigantamax Snorlax in Max Raid Battles starting December 4, 2019 and lasting through early January, 2020.

Gigantamax Snorlax has an exclusive G-Max Move, G-Max Replenish, which does a lot of damage and also replenishes any berries that any of its allies have eaten during battle. This will replace any of Gigantamax Snorlax’s damaging Normal-type moves.

Leon from Pokémon Sword & Shield saying: "You must be Marriland—am I right? I've heard loads about you from my little brother."
Apparently even Leon has heard about Marriland. Yay!

It’s now been over a week since Pokémon Sword & Shield were released worldwide for the Nintendo Switch and the level of traffic the Marriland website has seen has been absolutely phenomenal! So, whether you’ve visited for the site’s Pokémon Sword & Shield Pokédex, its powerful Team Builder, the ongoing Walkthrough for Pokémon Sword & Shield, or any other content, I hope that you found it helpful and, if not, I hope that you’ll stick around as I work on improving things over the next few months.

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.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Pokémon!

It’s finally time — time for Pokémon Sword & Shield! Throughout the past 18 hours, the games have been launching throughout the world, but now both Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield have launched worldwide, finally now available in North America as midnight EST rolls along.

To help through your adventure in the Galar region, the Marriland website has now launched its Pokémon Sword & Shield Pokédex — a mobile-friendly Pokédex with info on each Pokémon’s moves, abilities, and more.

Additionally, to help decide on your team throughout the game, the site’s Pokémon Team Builder has been updated for FULL Sword & Shield support! You can use this tool to check your whole team’s weaknesses and resistances at once.

Look forward to the upcoming Pokémon Sword & Shield Walkthrough and associated videos coming to Marriland.com very soon!

Marriland Team Builder

A lot of work has gone into the Marriland website over the past several months, though most of it has been behind the scenes, working on a new engine that will eventually house the site’s Pokédex and other tools. One of the most popular and most useful features on the Marriland website is the Pokémon Team Builder, which can be used to help plan teams and check for party-wide weaknesses and resistances.

I’m pleased to announce that the Team Builder has received a MASSIVE update (v5.0.0) that should make it much easier to use. It also has added support for all of the officially-revealed Pokémon in Pokémon Sword & Shield, so if there are any officially-revealed Pokémon you would like to include on a potential team, you can include them.
