    A versatile system that allows fun anywhere you go

    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 are 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 is 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 fiancé 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 is not feasible. The silly thing is that I purchased a separate Nintendo ac adapter where it’ll accept a longer USB-C cable, but it won’t work because the cable is not an official Nintendo cable. It’ll charge the switch, but it will 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 is great fun for a solo player and fun for the family also.

    It's a masterpiece home/handheld console, the marketing is perfect, playing it handheld is so cozy, their tons of masterpiece games for everyone, the joy-cons are so original & cool, the HD rumble is amazing, it's easy to hold the system, NS online is on a good price, the menu is clean, you can add more memory slots with a microSD card, the cartages are back, the graphics are superb up to 1080p, there is a dock to keep the cables safe, you can touch the screen on handheld mode just like the Wii U gamepad, sliding the joy-cons are so neat, & you can play the Switch anywhere! Also this game is great!

    Awesome console

    Having pikachu and eevee on my switch dock is adorable. The game made me feel nostalgic, and offered things I had always wished in a pokemon game; like being able to ride my favorite pokemon, which was awesome. The poke'ball plus made the game more interactive, it was cool to capture the pokemon in the poke'ball which would rumble and the color would change when the pokemon was captured, it really added to the experience. Also when you charge the poke'ball Overall a great buy. Be sure to buy a protective screen for your switch, I've heard stories of the docking scratching it when you put it in to charge.

    First Great Switch Bundle

    The other Switch bundles before this one really didn’t have anything to offer other than digital download of the game, sometimes an exclusive pouch, and a regular plain switch with either the black/red and blue joycons. Boring!!! Now this comes with two theme color joy-cons that are exclusive to this bundle, a dock that has the colorful pikachu and eevee on the front as well as decal of pikachu and eevee silhouettes on the switch itself. Also includes the Pokeball Plus and full download of the game. Such a great themed bundle! Highly recommend this bundle over the rest.

    I’ll admit I was a little skeptical spending $400 on this switch, even though it came with the Pokémon game and poke ball controller. But I can’t say enough great things about this switch. The back design on the switch with the eevees and pikachus is beyond adorable. I wasn’t sure about the yellow and tan joycons but I was pleasantly surprised! It all works together so beautifully. Definitely a stellar product and would buy again!

    The switch is great. It is fun to play and nice to be able to use mobile or on your TV. Since the switch is still new it doesn’t have very many good original games with modern graphics. It’s also not so good for people with big hands if you are using only the joy cons. The battery life is decent but could be improved as well for on the go gaming. Despite all that, the switch is fun and has a lot to offer if you do your research into how much everything costs and the type of games they have to fit your style of play. Happy gaming!

    We’ve been debating getting a switch since they came out but couldn’t pull the trigger because of the price point. 5 yo begged for one for his birthday, so that was all the justification we needed. It rocks. He has been having a blast catching pokémon and racing in Mario Kart. The whole family loves it! In fact, we love it so much we’re considering buying a second one for the wife and I to use. If you’re thinking of getting one, do it!!!

    Excellent product, 1 joycon clicky

    This is an excellent limited edition product. It would have been 5 stars, but I had to deduct 1 star for an issue with one of the joycon controllers. While one works perfectly, the other seems to have an issue with the stick getting stuck. It will either not allow the character in pokemon to run or will force them to run when playing. It is not a big issue for this game but I may need to purchase a spare joycon for playing any other game.

    For me, I think this was the perfect bundle to purchase. I never owned a switch and have been wanting one for quite a while. Since I play Go, the Pokeball was a great plus. I like how it's Eevee and Pikachu themed. The silhouettes of them in the back of the switch make it look really nice along with the colors of the controllers. It's different from the average switch. I would highly recommend it if you're a Pokemon fan.

    I got my switch a few weeks ago and I’m so happy I did! Originally I was nervous about getting a console that cost so much. I don’t typically go for the newest thing so I was going to wait a while longer for the price to drop but a friend of mine let me try theirs and I was hooked! I went out and picked up one for myself pretty quickly after that. I’m working my way through cuphead right now

    This is an excellent product and a good bundle option. The themes joycons are awesome and really nice colors. I only wish it wasn't so expensive, the Switch has been out for a little while now and should have had a bit of a price cut by now. The game is really fun, good mixture of Lets Go mechanics and the original games. Its a good game to fill the void when waiting for Sword and Shield.

    It's still the Switch, but it's nice to have exclusive colors and the pic of Pikachu and Eevee on the dock. The game itself with the Pokeball Plus is very fun and a good nostalgia trip. Even though this bundle has a premium price to it compared to cheaper alternatives because of Black Friday, I would still buy this in a heartbeat.

    I pre-ordered for Christmas and it was delivered in great condition and we haven’t had any issues in the last 3 months. I only wish it came with more memory. Even the external games require memory and coupling that with downloaded games we quickly had to purchase a micro SD to accommodate both. When you run out of memory no games will play.

    The Switch is an awesome system. I got this bundle because it came with the Pokeball controller and the Pokemon game. I was disappointed that the game was a digital download and not a hard copy. The system only come with an internal 32gb of memory so you will need to get a bigger microsd card. But overall its a good system.

    What’s not to love?? Pikachu and Eevee are adorable and the switch is such a great console. The game is okay, but the special edition console is so cute that it’s worth it. Pokeball controller is gimicky but hey, I’ve played Pokémon my entire life and love every bit of holding a pokeball to play Pokémon!

    I have always loved everything nintendo creates, and it was hard to say no to a Pokemon themed nintendo switch. I love the unique joycons and how they match the dock. The game is fun even though its a change from what I'm use to with pokemon. Very high recommendation.

    It's $100 more than the regular switch console, but it comes with a normally $60 game as well as a pokeball controller that I believe is $40 itself. The dock is adorable and I love the colors of the joycons. Highly recommend

    It is exactly everything I expected and more! The classic games for the Online play are a nice bonus. But it does kind of stink that there is a fee for that now, as to where there was not before. Compared to other gaming systems though, it is cheap.

    I spent a month shopping for this item. I wanted to be certain my grandson would love the choices I made. Best Buy finally made it all so easy. They have a great staff to help me choose and a return policy in case I needed it. I didn't. He loved everything.
