Original Article (Wed 18th Aug, 2021 14:45 BST): During today's Pokémon Presents video, The Pokémon Company unveiled a brand new Nintendo Switch Lite system inspired by Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

Set to hit retail on 5th November, the system features artwork of Dialga and Palkia, the two Legendary Pokémon which feature on Diamond and Pearl's boxarts. It's also sporting a brand new metallic grey colour scheme not yet seen on any Nintendo Switch system, perfect for a gloomy day.

In a neat touch, the design is actually based on that of a Nintendo DS Lite system which only launched in North America and Japan. You'll spot the same images of Dialga and Palkia here:
