Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet both debut on the Nintendo Switch next month. To celebrate, Nintendo is releasing a limited-edition OLED console for all the serious trainers out there.
This new model comes with a silver dock with prints of the two new legendry Pokémon of the latest generation – Koraidon and Miraidon. The red and purple joy-cons will also match the colours of the prints.
The switch itself comes decorated with loads of new Pokémon in a graffiti style, like what we saw on the last special edition console for the launch of Splatoon 3.
If you would like to purchase this special edition version of Switch OLED, then we have rounded up everything you need to know. We’ve also rounded up all the best deals for the Nintendo Switch this month in the run-up to Black Friday.
