Thinking of buying switch lite and Pokémon sword I'm wondering if I need to buy joycons as well?

  1. I'm thinking about buying a Nintendo switch lite as well as Pokémon sword and shield and I'm wondering if I need to buy a pair of joycons in order to play Pokémon sword and shield properly or if I don't need joycons and can save myself £60

Accepted Answer

  1. You don't need the Joycons: Nintendo Switch Lite comes with "incorporated Joycons", basically, as the buttons are incorporated into the structure of the console, to its sides, to be precise. You'd be wasting your money.

  1. You dont need to buy a new pair of Joycon in Playing Sword and Shield. Everything in the game can be experience normally with your Switch Lite.

  2. Unlike the Let's Go games, motion controls are almost non existent in this game. In fact the only motion controls I've seen all game is used when cooking Curry while at a camp.

    So unless you really want to fork out 60 bucks to fan some flames and stir a virtual spoon, I think your good to just play with the attached controllers.

  3. granted though the switch lite also suffers from the drift that the joycons have, in all honesty a regular switch might be better as the joycons are replaceable

  4. I use my old gamecube controllers for it. Only thing I can't do is whistle on it. So yeah no motion controls are needed.
