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.
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!
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.
One of the most beloved features from the old Marriland site — the Team Builder — has been rebuilt from scratch and is now available as the first of the new Marriland website’s tools.
If you’re not familiar with the Team Builder, it’s a tool that you can use to input a team of up to six Pokémon and then it will show you the entire team’s weaknesses and resistances in a helpful table, while also showing you the total number of Pokémon weak and resistant to every type.
