New Pokémon Dialga & Palkia edition Nintendo Switch Lite pre-orders now live

Price, release date and pre-order info.

The Pokémon Company streamed its Pokémon Presents show this week, announcing a number of updates for current and upcoming Pokémon games, as well as revealing a Dialga and Palkia edition Nintendo Switch Lite.

The Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl-themed Switch Lite is a sweet throwback to the limited edition Pokémon-themed Nintendo DS Lite 'Onyx' edition, which came out around the release of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl back in 2006.

The new Switch Lite design boasts a brand new metallic grey colour scheme and features silver and gold artwork of the two legendary Pokémon which appear Diamond and Pearl's box art.

A similar Pokémon-edition Switch Lite console launched in November 8, 2019 and featured Zacian and Zamazenta from the Sword and Shield games on Switch.

Here we've compiled everything you need to know about the Pokémon-themed handheld console including its price, release date and where you can pre-order the device.

Dialga and Palkia edition Nintendo Switch Lite price

The console will be the same price as the normal Switch Lite - £199.99 in the UK and $199.99 in the US.

Dialga and Palkia edition Nintendo Switch Lite release date

The new Switch Lite is due out on the 5th November 2021 in the UK, EU and US.

Sadly, the new Switch Lite console won't come with Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl, as it launches a couple of weeks before the release of the two new Pokemon Switch games, both of which are due out 19th November on Nintendo Switch.

It's also coming out around a month after the release of the Switch OLED, which is due to come out on 8th October.


Dialga and Palkia edition Switch Lite console pre-order info

The cheapest place to currently pre-order the new Switch Lite is at ShopTo for £199.85. You can also secure one at My Nintendo Store UK for £199.99.
