Since exploding on to the GameBoy back in the ’90s, Pokemon has been a fixture of Nintendo’s roster of beloved exclusive titles. Over the years, we’ve seen countless games, TV shows, films, and of course, special edition games consoles to tie in with one of the biggest pop culture phenomenons that the world has ever seen.
After we got a special edition Nintendo Switch console to tie in with Let’s Go! Pikachu and Let’s Go! Eevee in 2018, there was little surprise when Nintendo announced that the first special edition of the 2019’s new Nintendo Switch Lite console would revolve around Pokemon.
Coming in an exclusive light grey colour, the console reflects the colour of Sword and Shield legendary mascots, Zacian and Zamazenta, with blue and pink buttons giving the console a distinctive look. The back of the console features some dark grey etched decals of the two legendary Pokemon.
One thing to bear in mind when buying this special edition is that it does not come packaged with Pokemon Sword or Shield as standard. In the above comparison, you can see all the various bundle options that we’ve found, which include plenty of options to get both the console and your chosen edition of the Switch’s first original Pokemon title from a variety of different retailers.
