The few weeks leading up to the release of new Pokémon games will always be an exciting time for fans of the series, and the build-up to the launch of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl has become even more special thanks to the release of the Switch Lite console in the Dialga and Palkia edition.
The system was launched last Friday (purchase options are available here if you are interested), two weeks before the games themselves, and Nintendo’s store in New York celebrated the release with fans. The store held a special Sinnoh Region event for those attending, where fans could download the new Switch Lite system and participate in photo opportunities.
Nintendo of America has shared some photos of the event:

As a UK-based team that is sadly lacking in official Nintendo stores like this, we always get hugely jealous when we see the NY store. Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl were at the center of the store’s windows for the event:
Remember, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will be launched on Friday, November 19th. Copies can be pre-ordered here.
