The Nintendo Switch Lite is a beautiful piece of tech. The only thing that could make it even better is a touch of personality. Lucky for us, the Switch Lite comes in a few different color options, including a design featuring one of the console's most anticipated games. Of course, that kind of variety can make it challenging to pick one. So, if you're wondering, "which color Switch Lite should I buy," we've written a few details about each hue available for the Nintendo Switch Lite to help you decide.

All Switch Lite Colors

Mellow yellow: our favorite is shocking

This is my favorite color for the Switch Lite, and this is coming from someone who never grew out of the teenage goth phase. It's just a pleasant color, and if you don't like the Pokémon design on the Pokémon Nintendo Switch Lite, you can always pretend that this is a Pikachu color. Just add a few red stickers and a tail, and voila!, your own Pikachu Lite! Or, if you're just fond of the color yellow, that's cool too!

It's light blue for you!

Turquoise is great for many reasons, but it's probably the most important one because it's the best color in the world. It's nice, soothing, and reminds me of the ocean. So, if you want to feel soothed and good about yourself? Then yeah, the turquoise color is pretty great.

Pretty in pink

We've seen the bright, sunny yellow and the ocean-colored turquoise Switch Lite, so now that we've been above the waves, it's time to dive into the water and look at this gorgeous coral-colored Switch. The vibrant hue reminds one of a happy day, like a trip to the beach. This is the perfect Switch for anyone who loves pink or bright colors.

This smaller Switch feels great in your hands and looks gorgeous too. It can only be used in handheld mode, but you can purchase additional Joy-Cons if you wish to play local multiplayer games with friends.

Neutral and cool

Despite what may look to be a dull color, the gray Nintendo Switch Lite isn't all that bad. It's a color that isn't too bright without being completely dull, either. Instead, it's a neutral color, demanding nothing but your time and attention to play the video games you want and nothing else in between.

Pokémon lovers only

There is a lot to like about this color for the Switch Lite. One, the combination of pink and blue is just so, so good. If I didn't already have a yellow Switch Lite, Zacian and Zamazenta would already be in my basket, waiting patiently for me to purchase it. Once again, this is a special edition, and as such, it's hard to find. If you really want it, then you might have to resort to purchasing it secondhand.

Get deep

This is a nice change-up from the other color options for the Switch Lite. It's not a light or neutral color but is very pleasing to the eye. It is a great color for those who want a pop of color with a little more subtlety.

Can't find the color you want? Consider a silicone cover!

It's been tough to find the Nintendo Switch Lite in stock and selling at its regular price. If you've got your heart set on a specific color but can only find other colors available, then there's a simple solution. Purchase the available color and then purchase a Nintendo Switch Lite cover to change its hue, like how the Yellow Switch Lite above has a Turquoise case cover.
