Pokemon enthusiasts all across the world are only a few weeks away from being able to return to Sinnoh with the release of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. However, die-hard Pokémon Dialga & Palkia lovers can express their devotion ahead of time with a special Dialga & Palkia Edition. The Nintendo Switch Lite was inspired by two of the Legendaries from Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. This limited-edition Nintendo Switch Lite is now available to buy.
This isn’t the first time Palkia, and Dialga have appeared in advertising for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, but it may be the most successful. Collectors’ edition video game consoles are common, and the Pokemon series already has strong ties to collector communities because of its trading card game. Fans will have to pray that scalpers don’t get their hands on all of the Pokemon Dialga & Palkia Edition Nintendo Switch Lites before anyone else.
Dialga & Palkia Edition of Pokemon, The body of the Nintendo Switch Lite, is a cool silvery grey tone, with realistic outlines of Palkia the Spatial Pokemon and Dialga the Temporal Pokemon on the rear. These high-contrast designs resemble ink sketches and make excellent use of negative space.
Palkia’s image is traced in silver ink, while Dialga’s image is outlined in gold ink, giving the idea that they are diametrically opposed. The Legendaries are depicted from the chest up, with their legs hidden and facing away from one another.

While the Pokemon Dialga & Palkia Edition Nintendo Switch Lite model may appear to be simple and easy, it is actually a tribute to a previous special Pokemon console design. To commemorate the launching of Pokemon Generation 4, a Palkia and Dialga-themed Nintendo DS Lite was released to coincide with the release of Pokemon Pearl and Diamond. This particular DS model also had a dark body with gold and silver ink-style outlines of Palkia and Dialga. The two, however, were depicted on the DS’s lid rather than the back.
The Pokemon Dialga & Palkia Edition Nintendo Switch Lite is now available at My Nintendo Store, Best Buy, Target, Amazon, and ShopTo, among other retailers. With Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl set to release in the middle of the month, now is a fantastic opportunity to pick up a Nintendo Switch Lite with the Pokémon Dialga and Palkia Edition. Fans will have two weeks to set up their new Nintendo Switch Lite before the titles it is based on are released.
