Thanksgiving is upon us, and the Black Friday deals are starting to roll in. There are a ton of great deals on all sorts of video games, consoles, and more, but Black Friday also has quite a few special deals in store for everything Pokemon. Whether that’s Pokemon Sword & Shield, the Poke Ball Plus, plush figures, or anything in between, Black Friday has an onslaught of Pokemon discounts.
While the latest entries in the series, Pokemon Sword and Shield, may have only just launched on Nintendo Switch this month, you can already find the games for cheaper at Ebay with free shipping. That’s not the only worthwhile deal available through the digital store. If you’re interested in the new Pokemon games but don’t yet have a Switch, you can pick up a Nintendo Switch Lite in your choice of color along with a copy of Pokemon Sword for $230–$30 off of their usual combined price.
Some older Pokemon games are also on sale ahead of Black Friday. You can pick up last year’s Switch Pokemon titles, Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee, for $43 each at Amazon, while Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon for 3DS are $23.09. And if you’re in the market for a Poke Ball Plus, the accessory will be on sale for only $20 at various retailers as part of Nintendo’s official Black Friday sale.
Those are just a few of the good Pokemon deals we’ve seen ahead of Black Friday 2019; we’ve rounded up even more below. We’ll update this list with any additional Pokemon deals we find, so check back often as we get closer to Black Friday. You can also see even more of this year’s best Black Friday deals across gaming, tech, and entertainment below.
Black Friday 2019 Deals & News
Best Pokemon game deals
Pokemon Sword & Shield | $48 (
The first Gen 8 Pokemon games take players to Galar, a picturesque region that’s home to a variety of new and familiar Pokemon to catch and raise. While the games don’t stray very far from the series’ established formula, Sword and Shield introduce a handful of new features to help keep the experience fresh, including the Wild Area, an open-world locale where some incredibly strong Pokemon roam about. There are also some new battle mechanics to master like Dynamaxing, which temporarily supersizes a Pokemon during battle.
Right now, the cheapest place to buy Pokemon Sword and Shield is at Ebay, where you can get a brand-new copy for $48 with free shipping as part of the site’s Black Friday sale.
Nintendo Switch Lite + Pokemon Sword Bundle | $230 (
Nintendo’s portable-focused Switch Lite runs for $200 by itself, but you can get it along with a copy of Pokemon Sword or Pokemon Shield right now for $230–a $30 savings. You’ll want to act soon if you’re interested, as quantities are likely limited and probably won’t last long.
Pokemon Sword + Pokemon Shield | $81 (
If you’re not sure which new Pokemon game to pick up, you can get a copy of both Pokemon Sword and Shield at a nice discount with this bundle on Google Shopping. While this offer doesn’t feature the steelbook double pack, it does get you both games for $101 ($19 less than they would normally cost if you purchased them together), and you can drop that down even further to $81 (plus tax) with the promo code promo code NOVSAVE19–an excellent price for two titles.
Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu & Eevee | $43 (
While Sword and Shield take place in an entirely new region, last year’s Pokemon games, Let’s Go, Pikachu and Let’s Go, Eevee, instead reimagine the classic Pokemon Yellow version. The titles take players back to Kanto, the setting of the original Pokemon games, where you’ll encounter the original 150 Pokemon and do battle against classic Gym Leaders like Brock and Misty. The games also take some influence from Pokemon Go, namely in terms of how you catch Pokemon; instead of battling wild monsters, you capture them by swinging your Joy-Con at the right time. Having a save file of the Let’s Go Pikachu or Eevee gets you a free bonus in Pokemon Sword and Shield, as long as you claim it early.
Pokemon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon | $23.09 (
The final mainline Pokemon games to hit the 3DS, Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are at their core upgraded versions of 2016’s Sun and Moon versions. While the basic storyline generally remains the same, the Ultra games expand the narrative with a new subplot focusing on the Legendary Pokemon Necrozma. A new organization called the Ultra Recon Squad also figures into the story, and there are several new Ultra Beasts to catch as well. The games are already discounted at Amazon, but Best Buy will also have them on sale for $25 each during Black Friday.
Poke Ball Plus | $20 (
Released alongside Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee, the Poke Ball Plus is a Poke Ball-shaped accessory that works much like a Joy-Con. The controller is also compatible with the newly released Pokemon Sword and Shield, and it lets you take one of your Pokemon out with you on a walk and earn rewards. On top of that, each Poke Ball Plus comes with Mew as an added bonus, making it the only way you can obtain the Mythical Pokemon in Let’s Go or Sword and Shield so far. The accessory normally runs for $50, but Best Buy, GameStop, Target and Amazon will all have it for only $20 during Black Friday.
PowerA Wired Pokemon Nintendo Switch controller | $15 (
PowerA’s wired Switch game pads may lack some of the features found in Nintendo’s official Switch Pro controller, but they’re a good budget-conscious alternative, and they come in an array of different designs, including one featuring Pokemon’s adorable mascot, Pikachu. You can grab this eye-catching controller at Best Buy for only $15 on Black Friday, down from its normal price of $25. Other PowerA controllers based on Zelda, Mario, and more will also be on sale; you can check those out in our roundup of Best Buy Black Friday deals.
