Nintendo Switchs Pokemon library just took a heavy discount

You can save a good chunk of change on Pokemon games for Nintendo Switch if you move quickly; numerous retailers have slashed the price of many down to just under $40. That’s a total drop of $20 in today’s Nintendo Switch deals.

Stealing the spotlight in this Pokemon games sale is Brilliant Diamond for $39.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab) rather than $60. Similarly, Shining Pearl has also tumbled to a greatly-reduced $39.99 (opens in new tab). Because they only came out at the end of last year, that’s the cheapest they’ve ever been – before now, their lowest price was around $52. If you wanted to dive back into the world of Sinnoh with these remakes or just fancied trying them out for the first time, there’s never been a better opportunity.

The same Pokemon games sale also offers a cut of $20 on Shield (available via Amazon for $39.99 (opens in new tab)). Because neither Sword nor Shield have ever dipped below $50 before now, it’s the best chance you’ll get to try these new entries to the franchise. 

Elsewhere, we’ve seen New Pokemon Snap fall to $39.99 instead of $59.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab). Because it reviewed so well across the board (and has never dropped below $50 either), we’d definitely recommend grabbing it for less while you can. 

You’ll find all of these Nintendo Switch deals just below, and plenty more cheap Nintendo Switch games further down the page.
