If you’re a thrifty gamer who has been holding off on grabbing the new Pokémon game on Switch, you’ve got some good news. If you’re in the market for both a system and a copy of Pokémon Sword or Shield, Wal-Mart has just what you need. The company is offering a special limited-time bundle of the Switch Lite, a carrying case and a copy of one of the new games for a discount. If you’re looking for an easy gift for a friend for the holidays, this is a great opportunity if they like the franchise.
The bundle itself is pretty simple, and is a great deal ahead of Black Friday. Depending on which version of the console itself you pick, you can save between $20-$30 right now on a Switch Lite and a pretty good Pokémon game. There are two variants of the Switch Lite to choose from. Gamers can grab either a standard turquoise, grey or yellow model for a bit cheaper. If you want to spend $10 more, go for the special Pokémon Sword and Shield variant featuring new Legendaries, Zacian and Zamazenta.
The bundle ranges in price between $238.99 and $248.99, depending on which options you go with. Obviously that isn’t counting shipping or taxes which will be extra. And as far as I can see, this is an online-only offer, so stores will not be able to accommodate price matching. You can however use Site-to-Store with this offer, and have the bundle shipped to your local store for pickup.
So head over to the site, pick your desired style of console between turquoise, grey, yellow and even the limited edition Pokémon system, and then choose either Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield The case comes as a “free” bonus, so no skimping on the cost by not including it. And honestly, given the entirely portable nature of the Switch Lite, you really should have a carrying case for it.
