PowerA’s electrifying range of Pokémon Day controllers
Take your pick from over 40 Pokémon PowerA peripherals for your Nintendo Switch
Forget Valentine’s Day (I’m trying to), February is all about Pokémon. Way back in 1996, one of the most famous franchises in gaming was born as Pokémon Red and Green introduced the world to the first-ever Pocket Monsters. Now, we celebrate the original Japanese release of Pokémon Red and Green on February 27th every year as Pokémon Day. And rightly so.
To celebrate this year, leading gaming accessory manufacturer PowerA has a massive 40-plus designs to choose from featuring the legendary Pokémon mascot Pikachu. Here, we take a look at just a handful of the controllers and accessories you can grab to boost your Pokémon gameplay experience.
PowerA Pokémon controllers
You can take your pick from both wired and wireless controllers from PowerA, as well as Joy-Con comfort grips if that’s more your style.
Our top pick of PowerA’s adorable Pikachu designs is definitely the Pikachu Electric Type range, which features possibly the cutest Pikachu art we’ve ever seen. The Enhanced Wired Controller is officially licensed by Nintendo, as well, so there’s no excuse not to play with those cute eyes looking up at you.
If the Pikachu Electric Type design is just slightly too sweet for you, then the Enhanced Wired controller comes in a range of other designs, including the red Pikachu and Poké Ball style, as well as the Pikachu Fade. And, for retro gaming fans, look no further than Pikachu Arcade.
If you prefer a less restrictive Nintendo switch session, then PowerA also offers a range of wireless Nintendo Switch controllers. The enhanced Wireless controllers come in an incredible 25 designs, including both Pokémon and non-Pokémon options. We particularly love the brightly colored Pikachu Graffiti style.
Joy-Con comfort Grip
If you want something slightly cheaper, still adorable Pikachu, and comfortable to use, then there’s always a brand-new Joy-Con grip. Again, PowerA offer the Joy-Con Comfort Grip in a range of styles, with the instantly recognizable bright yellow Pikachu design the pick of the bunch.
Other PowerA Pokémon accessories
Finally, you might want to carry your Nintendo Switch around in style this Pokémon Day, while making sure it’s always protected. The PowerA Protection case is ideal for keeping your console and games together and safe, and it’s carry handle makes for easy transportation while showing off your Pokémon allegiance.
