Best Pokemon Day 2020 Deals: Pokemon Sword, Switch Controllers, Plush, And More
Pokemon Day should be a national holiday, right?
Today is Pokemon Day. No, it's sadly not the day that Pokemon become real and we can live like Ryme City citizens in Detective Pikachu; it's the anniversary of Pokemon Red and Green's release in Japan. In celebration of Pokemon Day, we've rounded up the best deals on Pokemon products, from plushies and Funko Pops to controllers and carrying cases for Nintendo Switch. The Pokemon Center is offering free shipping on all orders for Pokemon Day, and GameStop's Tax Refund Sale features more than 100 Pokemon products for 20% off.
Best Pokemon Day deals
Pokemon Sword | $49.49 (
Target has Pokemon Sword discounted roughly $10 off right now. Unfortunately, Pokemon Shield is still at its normal $60 price. As a heads up for current players, new limited-time Max Raid battles featuring Mewtwo and the Gen 1 starters were added to Pokemon Sword and Shield to commemorate Pokemon Day.
PowerA Enhanced Wireless Controllers for Nintendo Switch
PowerA's wireless controllers for Switch are basically more affordable Pro controllers. They mimic the layout of one of the Switch's best gamepads, while dropping wireless charging in favor of AA batteries. They don't have NFC support for Amiibo or rumble, though. However, PowerA controllers add two additional triggers on the back panel that can be programmed on the fly. Three of the Pokemon-themed PowerA designs are on sale at Amazon.
- Pokeball Red controller -- $38.49 (
- Pokemon Graffiti controller -- $39.13 (
- Pokemon Battle Pikachu vs. Mewtwo controller -- $45 (
