If you’re looking to buy the console today, Best Buy and Walmart have it in stock right now. However, you can only order it for pickup at your local store.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Switch OLED have some pretty outstanding artwork, especially on the back of the console. You’ll find all three starter Pokemon – Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly – embellished with a host of other symbols and designs from the Pokemon world.
The white dock features images of both Legendary Pokemon (Koraidon and Miraidon) on the front and a Poke Ball design on the back. It comes with purple and red Joy-Con controllers with symbols printed on them. The back of each Joy-Con has an image of Pokemon outlined in purple or red, matching the colors on the console.
