Games on Nintendo Switch are not discounted very often – may the gods bless Steam Sales – and that goes especially for flagship series like Pokémon, Mario, or The Legend of Zelda. Enter Prime Day on Amazon UK, where you can currently get Pokémon Violet with a 40% discount, paying a mere £29.95.

Pokémon Scarlet’s price is reduced as well, but only by 26%. Unfortunately, this offer only seems to be viable in the UK and not in the US.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet were released in November 2022 for Nintendo Switch, building on the open-world experiments in Pokémon Legends: Arceus from the beginning of 2022. While both games suffered from technical difficulties and aren’t exactly visual masterpieces, fans and critics were full of lauding words for the change-up of the gameplay formula.

The titles were immensely successful commercially and are getting DLC later this year, which will include a continuation of the story, new areas to explore, and lots of fresh as well as returning Pokémon to catch.

Nintendo is continuously hosting 7-Star Tera Raid events in both games to challenge players and give them something to work towards – Delphox with the Tera Type Fairy is the current boss you can battle against.

If you’re getting into Pokémon Scarlet and Violet with this Prime Day offer, which ends on July 12, 2023, you should check out the best gym order, best titan order, and best Team Star base order to follow – it’s an open-world game, after all, and there will be much less direction than you’re used to from the Pokémon series.
