Nintendo Switch Online Makes New Pokemon Goodies Available


Beginning this week and extending through December 25th, Nintendo is making various icons associated with Pokémon Scarlet and Violet readily available through the Missions & Benefits section of Change Online. Currently, three of these icons are offered to make at this very moment as part of Wave 1 and include the new starter Pokémon from Scarlet and Violet.

To accompany the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, Nintendo is providing Nintendo Change Online members some brand-new giveaways connected to the franchise. Beyond providing customers an extensive catalog of retro games to gain access to through Change Online, Nintendo typically provides some other goodies to those who the service. Now Change Online members will have the ability to snag a number of various Pokemon-related icons.

Are you going to aim to get these Pokémon icons for yourself through Nintendo Change Online? And what kind of extra goodies are you hoping to see land on the service down the roadway? Let me know either down in the comments or shoot me a message on Twitter at @MooreMan12.

Per usual, it’s worth stressing that if you wish to get any of these Pokémon icons on your own, you’ll need to technically purchase them with Platinum Points. This indicates that the icons aren’t technically complimentary, Platinum Points are obtained by simply completing missions that Nintendo Change Online deals. These missions are frequently quite easy, though, which means it shouldn’t take much for you to earn this currency and cash it in on the Scarlet and Violet user icons.

As a whole, video game icons are something that Nintendo has started to offer an entire lot more through Nintendo Change Online over the past year or two. And while a few of these icons have been tied to older Nintendo video games or franchises, it’s cool to see that the Japanese game publisher has actually been able to make this month’s rotation line up with Scarlet and Violet.
