If you are a Pokémon fan and want to increase your collection of games for the Nintendo Switch, Best Buy has just launched an interesting sale. It has lowered the price of recent titles, including Pokémon Brilliant Diamond/Shiny pearl, Pokémon Sword Edition and Pokémon Snap at $ 40, saving you $ 20 on a regular price. Even better, you can find Pokemon: Let’s go to Pikachu and Let’s go Eevee titles for half the discount.

Pokémon Brilliant diamond ($ 40) and Shiny pearl ($ 40) is a remake of the original 2006 DS games with significantly improved visuals thanks to the hardware capabilities of the Switch. They were launched less than a year ago, so they are rarely seen with a one-third discount. Pokémon Sleepp ($ 40), meanwhile, is a sequel to the 1999 Nintendo 64 Classic. It came out early last year and again gives you the same wonderfully original concept (take the best photos from the train to score points), with significantly improved visuals of the Switch.
The other two titles with a $ 20 discount are Pokémon Shield Edition (40 USD) and Pokémon Sword ($ 40), released in 2019. Although the games met with a negative response because they did not include all existing Pokémon, they sold nearly 25 million copies worldwide, becoming one of the fastest-selling games on the Switch. Because of that popularity, they’re hard to find on sale, so a $ 20 discount is welcome news.
Finally, there is Pokémon: Let’s go Eevee! (30 USD) and Let’s go, Pikachu! (30 USD). Both were launched in 2018, reportedly as a remake Pokémon is yellow. At the same time, they bridge the gap between the basic series and the popular one Pokémon Go a mobile game, turning the Pokémon capture experience into a Go-style mini-game. Half the discount is a very solid offer for these games, but it probably won’t last long.
