The popularity of Pokémon has endured since the little creatures first burst onto the scene in the 1990s. Since the days of the N64, Nintendo have released several Poké-themed consoles, many of which look stunning.

With the release this month of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, a special limited edition Switch Lite has also been let loose in the Zacian and Zamazenta edition. So, we thought it the perfect time to take a look back at some of the special Pokémon-themed consoles (and, where appropriate, cover plates) from over the years – some which were readily available, some which weren’t.

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are available now, exclusively for Switch.
