Switch Pikachu & Eevee Edition lovingly recreated by fan

Nintendo Switch Pikachu & Eevee edition

Fans sure do love their special edition consoles. After the epic Nintendo Direct reveal of the Nintendo Switch Pikachu & Eevee Edition, one fan decided to recreate it himself. CptnAlex is a YouTuber and of course a huge Pokémon fan.

CptnAlex painted the Joy-Con by hand and printed some custom stickers for his Nintendo Switch console and Nintendo Switch Dock. This was a truly cool DIY to make his Switch look like the actual Pikachu & Eevee Edition hitting stores this November.

The funny part of this video is that viewers are led to believe it’s an exclusive first look at the actual console–but then at the very end he reveals it’s not. So if you happen to have some extra time, are good at painting, already own a Nintendo Switch, and don’t want to shell out money for another one, here’s a good DIY project.

What do you think? Will you attempt this? Let us know in the comments. Kudos to CptnAlex for sharing this video and project with fans.
