Will Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl have a limited edition?

Unfortunately in recent years, Pokemon titles haven’t really had a limited edition or collector’s releases. Instead, Nintendo offers players a “double pack” for those wanting both versions in one convenient place.

There is a special “Dialga and Palkia” version of the Nintendo Switch Lite, though, based on the limited edition DS console that came out when the original games were released.
