It is undoubtedly agreed that gaming with a keyboard and a mouse provides better accuracy than a controller. Consoles like PS5 have keyboard and mouse support while Nintendo lacks it here. This void can be filled by connecting a regular normal PC keyboard and mouse to your Nintendo switch. This however will only limit you to only typing texts as suppose to actually moving your character.

Players would certainly like to enjoy the pokemon scarlet and violet game on the switch with the accuracy of a mouse and keyboard, so here are some ways to mimic that.

  • For achieving character movability, software called BlueStacks 5 can be used which is an emulator designed to play cross-platform games on a single screen.
  • This allows players to play Nintendo games on a PC using its button mapping scheme to your keyboard.
  • Follow this: Press and hold the cursor onto a key control – drag and drop it to your desired location on the PC screen – click save.
  • All is set, now whenever you move your mouse and click on the custom area you created, it will work and the same is with the keyboard from where you mapped to the controls


You can overcome this by using an adaptor or a Bluetooth receiver which have to be specifically designed to play games on the console. This method is easy to set up in the meantime. This Bluetooth method basically mimics the role of a controller thereby responding to the inputs even when given by mouse and keyboard.
