Good news for Pokémon fans, as the Pokémon Switch Lite Special Edition has launched today from Nintendo, named the Dialga and Palkia edition, the name coming from the legendary Pokémon of the upcoming games, Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
The release of this great special edition comes two weeks before the November 19 release of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl, the remakes of the 2006 DS games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. If you missed our most recent article about the upcoming releases, discussing the new Poketch features, make sure to check it out!
Pokémon Company chief operating officer Takato Utsunomiya gave a compelling description of the newly released console, saying “This special Nintendo Switch Lite is dressed up with art of the Legendary Pokémon Dialga & Palkia, bringing to mind a special Nintendo DS Lite Onyx Dialga & Palkia Edition that was released back in 2006 to align with the original game’s launch.”
Players of the original Diamond and Pearl games will remember these details well, that the games take place in the Sinnoh region, and the three starter Pokémon available to players are Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup. These games also introduced the Poketch system and the ability to create bases in the game which could be customized, which we are certain has been expanded and improved on in these remakes.
The ordinal announcement of this special edition came out at the same presentation of the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl announcements, which offered a good look at many of the features that are coming with the remakes. In addition to this, the upcoming open-world Pokémon game, Pokémon Legends: Arceus, was also revealed, which many fans are extremely excited about.
