What editions are there of the new Pokemon? As usual for the series, the new generation of Pokémon will be available in two different editions: Crimson and Crimson. But that’s pretty much all you have to choose from. You can purchase Pokémon Crimson and Crimson digitally or physically, but you can’t get additional Deluxe or Collector’s Editions here. However, there will be a double pack that combines crimson and crimson and puts a steel book on top.

  • Pokemon crimson
  • Pokemon Purple
  • Pokémon Crimson and Crimson Twin Pack Edition (Steelbook Included)

Buy Pokemon Crimson and Crimson – These traders have the new generation

Where can I buy Pokémon Crimson and Crimson? You can already get Pokémon Crimson and Crimson from many major electronics and games retailers. In terms of price, these do not differ from each other, so it is only a matter of personal preference or availability. However, you can only buy the digital versions of the games from Nintendo eShop, so for the double pack you’ll need to go to one of the other retailers to get the physical version.

Pokémon Crimson & Crimson: Buy Limited Nintendo Switch Console

You can make the new Paldea region from Pokémon crimson or purple stylish with a special switch version. From now on you can get the strictly limited Nintendo Switch OLED in the ninth generation design.

The console comes in two matching colors, Crimson and Crimson Purple, and comes with the new launchers. In addition, the two cover legends adorn the console. But keep in mind that you can only get the Crimson & Crimson themed switches from all the retailers listed. None of the new Pokémon games are included as a bundle. So you have to buy the games separately if you want to play them.

Buy Pokémon Crimson and Crimson – Get this bonus before release

Are there pre-order bonuses? You can’t expect additional features or packed collector’s editions when you buy Pokémon Crimson and Crimson, but Nintendo is still adding an extra for pre-orders. As a pre-order bonus, you’ll get a “special Pikachu” that can’t be found anywhere else in the game. This is a Tera-Crystallized Pikachu, naturally capable of the Fly attack, and Tera-type Flight.

The Pikachu looks suitably fancy, with a chic, jewel-like sheen and hanging from a couple of crystal balloons. So Pikachu is already one of the 51 confirmed Crimson and Crimson Pokémon, although the total number of monsters to be found in the final game is likely to be much larger. *affiliate link
