If you're like me and you haven't purchased a Nintendo Switch just yet, but you need one by Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's launch on December 7th, you might want to hold off on grabbing a console for the next couple of months.

This morning, Nintendo announced a brand new, special edition Nintendo Switch console — and it's Pokémon-themed! The unique console focuses on fan-favorite Pokemon Pikachu and Eevee and is centered around the upcoming Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee! games on the Switch.

The console comes as a bundle with the Let's Go game of your choice, and it is set to launch alongside the Let's Go games on November 16th.

Probably the largest draw for this sweet Nintendo Switch console is the special yellow and brown Joy-Con controllers — colored to represent Pikachu and Eevee, respectively. The console itself also sports silhouette decals of both Pikachu and Eevee in various poses along the back of it.

The Nintendo Switch dock also features large images of Eevee and Pikachu (in color and not silhouetted this time), and the bundle rounds out with the Poké Ball Plus peripheral that let's you feel like you're actually capturing pocket monsters while you play the game.

Those looking to pick up this Pokémon: Let’s Go Nintendo Switch bundle can expect to pay $400 USD. Both Pikachu and Eevee will be appearing in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — as a playable character and a Poké Ball Pokémon, respectively — so if you're a Pokémon fan and still need a Switch, this might be the console for you.

The bundle is available for pre-order over on GameStop right now.
