Pokemon Palkia and Dialga Nintendo Switch Lite Special Edition Now Available
Pokemon enthusiasts around the world are just weeks away from returning to Sinnoh with the release of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. However, die-hard Pokémon Dialga & Palkia fans can express their devotion ahead of time with a special Dialga & Palkia edition. The Nintendo Switch Lite was inspired by two of the legendary Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. This limited edition Nintendo Switch Lite is now available for purchase.
This isn’t the first time Palkia and Dialga have appeared in the commercial for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, but it is perhaps the most successful. Collector’s edition video game consoles are common, and the Pokemon series already has strong ties to collecting communities due to its collectible card game. Fans will have to pray that the scalpers don’t get their hands on all the Nintendo Switch Lites Pokemon Dialga & Palkia Edition before everyone else.
Dialga & Palkia Edition of Pokemon, the body of the Nintendo Switch Lite, is a cool silvery gray tone, with realistic outlines of Palkia the Spatial Pokemon and Dialga the Temporal Pokemon on the back. These high contrast designs look like ink sketches and make excellent use of negative space.
The image of Palkia is drawn in silver ink, while the image of Dialga is drawn in gold ink, giving the idea that they are diametrically opposed. The Legendaries are depicted from the chest up, with their legs hidden and turned towards each other.

While the Nintendo Switch Lite Pokemon Dialga & Palkia Edition model may seem simple and easy, it is actually a tribute to a previous special Pokemon console design. To commemorate the launch 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 from Palkia and Dialga. Both, however, were pictured on the DS cover rather than the back.
The Nintendo Switch Lite Pokemon Dialga & Palkia Edition is now available on My Nintendo Store, Best Buy, Target, Amazon, and ShopTo, among other retailers. With the release of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl in the middle of the month, now is a fantastic opportunity to grab a Nintendo Switch Lite with the Pokémon Dialga and Palkia editions. Fans will have two weeks to set up their new Nintendo Switch Lite before the titles it is based on release.
