And the newer Pokémon games?

I stopped keeping up with them after I played black and white.

I sure think so, if you're a fan of nintendo stuff.
The new pokemon games are kinda to your taste, they can be a bit 'easy' compared to older style games but If you're like me and it's more about the filling of the pokedex, shiny hunting, etc. it's cool. Plus a lot of decent features like the giant pokes.
Then there's all the mario stuff you can't play on anything else so.. yeah. Totally subjective :P

I’d simply be getting the switch for Pokémon games.

Trying to decide if I want to invest in it for the new pearl and diamond games coming out.

Or if I need to invest into getting a DS and just playing the older generation games :p

I bought my switch just to get sword, loved it. Played over 100 hours before I ended up having to sell it for cash when covid hit (rip)
I'd say it's worth it. You can pick up let's go used if you haven't played it it's really fun to try out, sw/sh are fun + the expansion is a nice release. Then you have DP coming up, and in the not-so-near future, legends.. if you love pokemon, you're gonna want this.

If you don't care to play it on a big screen, grab the lite if you're worried about pricepoint. I really enjoyed having detachable joycons, and being able to play on the big screen so I went for the full switch. Also the 'newer' (not so new now) v2 has a lot of the issues you may have heard about fixed (joycon drift etc)

Hmmm I’ve watched a lot of videos recently on SW / SH and I really like the way it looks.

I may have to buy one.

Appreciate all of your input!!

def the best entry in the series so far if you like PVP battles.
They have made it infinitely easier to get your pokemon battle ready.

Absolutely worth it. Going between handheld mode and docking the console for traditional gaming is what sold me. As far as the new Pokémon games I really enjoyed them. They have made them easier for newer players coming into the franchise such as some of the evolutions of some Pokémon and hints of where you need to go. With the announcement of the open world game legends of arceus can’t go wrong coming back to series. I’d maybe consider waiting until the announce the 4K model later this year.
