Hi Turgon. I see what you mean. 3-pin plugs/adapters indeed can't be used in 2-pin outlets. Many Swiss wall sockets have the J-type 3-pin shape though, so you normally shouldn't have issues finding a socket in which your adapter fits.
Most European type-C 2-pin plugs/adapters can be used in type J 3-pin Swiss sockets too.
If you want to be sure you'll always have a suitable adapter, then yes, it makes sense to get a type C 2-pin adapter as well. Unless you bought a 3-pin adapter with a detachable pin (which do exist as far as I know).
Know that most hotels can provide you with an adapter, if needed.
Power outlets are available in quite some Swiss trains, especially in first class and in business zones, but not in all trains/zones yet.
