    Bought this for my daughter and she absolutely loves it. She plays with this more than her Xbox. She is enjoying the mobility.

    This edition is beautiful for any pokemon fan. The game is great I play it when I get bored of other games. Love the portability so I can take it with me on my trips and play on the plane or anywhere I have to wait for my flight.

    I purchased this system for my son's birthday and needless to say, he loves it! Extremely simple set up and you spend very little time before you're up and running. I think the unique pokemon docking station and joy cons adds an awesome touch for any avid pokemon fan. The Pikachu and Evee colors on the dock/joy cons really complement each other. There are a couple of things that I love about this system: 1) The versatility. You can connect it to your big screen to play through the dock that comes included via HDMI. You can make it portable by playing it it like a tablet. It's very nice that you can play by yourself or with others in any of the modes. 2) Ease of use. It's pretty self explanatory. The cartridges go into the cartridge slot. The memory card goes in the memory card slot behind the kick stand. The joy cons have plus and minus signs you match up and then slide them on. The only thing we ran into was my fiance put the plastic piece that turns the joy con into a separate controller backwards and it took awhile to separate them again without breaking anything. You power it on and you're good to go besides some basic set up items in the beginning. 3) The selection of games. There are so many different titles out there that it wasn't difficult to pick and choose games. There are titles for my son's age and to be honest, there are titles out there that I would be interested in purchasing for myself too. 4) Parental controls. Now a days with all this technology at everyone's disposal, it is difficult to protect young children and what they have access to. With the switch, you can download an app on your smartphone and tweak a lot of features like what games they are able to play and for how long as well. It's more of a reward system to be able to play instead of just playing as long as they want which I think more children should have. I see it now a days where kids are just glued to their technology and they don't read, play, or use their imagination to pass their time. Even though there are a lot of things I love about this system, there are some quirks that can be improved on. 1) The ac adapter. It comes as one piece, One end plugs into the electrical outlet and the other is USB-C. The problem with the adapter is that it is a fairly short cable. A lot of people I know have stated that it is the average size length for the cord which is about 6', but how the entertainment center is set up, the dock sits about 10' away so there is no way to reach the HDMI and electrical outlet without redoing my entire entertainment center which isn't feasible. The silly thing is that I purchased a separate Nintendo ac adapter where it'll accept a longer USB-C cable, but it'll not work because the cable isn't an official Nintendo cable. It'll charge the switch, but it'll not display on the tv through the dock without the official Nintendo AC adapter. 2) The battery life. For games that are more graphically intensive i.e. Zelda. The console lasts for about 3 hours or so. Especially when we're flying or on road trips where there isn't always a charger available, the fun runs out pretty quick. I guess I am use to cellphones or tablets that last almost the entire day. 3) The internal memory. The switch comes with 32GB of internal memory. With how a lot of things are going digital now, 32GB isn't sufficient amount of space to do the every day things are looking to use it for. There is a slot for external memory, but if you wanted to download games on to your switch, then you might be able to fit a few games on it before having to go to an external micro SD card. For example, Legend of Zelda, I believe, takes up about 13-14GBs of the internal memory of storage. One game takes up almost half of the storage. With how memory intensive a lot of games are, with the amount of storage the switch comes with it wouldn't be enough for the amount of games I would like. Overall, it is a solid system. It gives the fun and enjoyment of how the Nintendo Wii was when it first came out. It's great fun for a solo player and fun for the family also.
