Pokemon Day should be a national holiday, right?

Comments

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.

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.
