The Pokémon Company announce a special Pokémon Switch Lite

The back of a Nintendo Switch Lite is shown, with a black colour all over and a gold and silver metallic detail showing the legendary Pokémon Dialga and Palkia

In the latest Pokémon Presents, along with new details on the upcoming titles Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl, and the open-world RPG Pokémon Legends Arceus, Nintendo announced that a new special edition Nintendo Switch Lite is on the way.

The special edition is a striking piece, featuring a black design and metallic engravings that depict the legendary Pokémon Dialga and Palkia, the box legendaries of the upcoming remakes. It’s based on the onyx Nintendo DS Lite that also featured Dialga and Palkia back in 2006 alongside the release of the original games.

This latest special edition Nintendo Switch Lite will launch on November 5, 2021, two weeks before the November 19 release date of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl, and nearly a month after the release of the Nintendo Switch OLED Model on October 8 2021. Many fans may have been hoping for a Special Edition Pokémon Nintendo Switch OLED Model instead, but the Switch Lite is still a nice-looking console.
