Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen (ポケットモンスターファイアレッド&リーフグリーン) was a remake of the original Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Blue Version for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance. The games were first released in Japan on January 29, 2004 for 3,800yen and 4,800yen with the Wireless adaptor.


Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue Versions were released six years before the remade Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen Versions were released for the Game Boy Advance and it introduced Pokémon to a new generation of gamers.

The games return to where it originally started in the Kanto region, the region that Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue introduced players to. With the enhanced capabilities of the Game Boy Advance, the game and the Kanto region look better than the original games with greatly improved animations.

Pokémon FireRed and Pokémon LeafGreen finally unite all the worlds of Pokémon, making it possible to catch and keep every single Pokémon in one game! Players still require Pokémon Ruby Version and Pokémon Sapphire Version, as well as Pokémon Stadium to get all the Pokémon.

There are different places to explore in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, most notably the Sevii Islands, where you can catch special Pokémon that don't exist anywhere else in Kanto!

Importing / Exporting Pokémon:

The Pokémon in the games can only be found in specific locations and some of them are harder to find and obtain than others. The Pokémon locations are also different between the games as players will have to search harder between games to find the Pokémon they are looking for. On the right is a list of version exclusive Pokémon.

Game Boy Advance Wireless Adapter

Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen shipped with a wireless adapter for Game Boy Advance, making it the first handheld to have such technology. The adapter allowed players to join an in-game lobby called the "Union Room" which allowed people to battle and trade Pokémon wirelessly.
