The two new mainline Pokémon games Pokémon Scarlet and Violet were the perfect games for Nintendo to promote this holiday season. The two games have not even been out an entire month and they are already breaking records. Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are reportedly the fasting selling games in the company's history. Those that want to pick up the game but would prefer a discount may have waited for this cyber Monday to see if they spot a deal.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Cyber Monday 2022 Deals

Unfortunately, those hoping to save a few bucks waiting to buy Pokémon Scarlet and Violet this holiday season will have to keep waiting. You will find many decent deals on Switch titles old and new this cyber Monday but the two new Pokémon games are not one of them. Many of the major retailers share the same deals but none offer the games at a discount. Seeing that its Nintendo's big holiday title it would have been bold for them to put a sale on the two games this early.

GameStop has plenty of other Switch Pokémon games on sale for $20 off. Last year's Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shinning Pearl are both $40. The eighth generation of games Sword and Shield is also $40. If you skipped out last year or just need a Pokémon fix any of those four titles might be a better option.

As successful as Scarlet and Violet has been sales-wise, the game itself has received mixed reactions from the fans. The gameplay changes have been well received, but the technical problems and mediocre presentation have disappointed many. Those that were conflicted about picking them up this holiday may have been swayed by a little cyber Monday discount. Hopefully, by the time the game gets a heavy discount, some of the kinks will be patched through some updates.
