Pokémon FireRed Version (ポケットモンスターファイアレッド Pocket Monsters Firered) and Pokémon LeafGreen Version (ポケットモンスターリーフグリーン Pocket Monsters Leafgreen) are remakes of the Red and Blue games. These games, like the original, take place in the Kanto region and also includes the Sevii Islands which were not in the original. Though these games are remakes of the Generation I games, they are considered to be Generation III games, now with better graphics and many new features.

Changes[edit | edit source]
- The player can choose to play as a male or female character. Red, the male player and Leaf, the female character.
- Pokémon from the Generation II and Generation III games can be obtained. However, only a few Generation II Pokémon that aren't part of the Hoenn Pokédex entries can be found in these versions without having to trade from Pokémon Colosseum or Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness (the others can be found on Pokémon Emerald after defeating the Elite Four).
- A new area, the Sevii Islands, can be accessed.
- Pokémon now have genders, natures, and abilities.
- Pokémon can now hold items.
- Pokémon are now able to breed, once reaching Four Island on the Sevii Islands during the post-game quest.
- Pokémon can now evolve into forms available in other generations, with the exception of Pokémon such as Umbreon and Espeon. While these Pokémon can still reach maximum happiness, as there is no internal clock in FR/LG, the game is unable to determine what time it is, and as such is unable to evolve Eevee based on the time of day.
- Moves from Generation II and III are now available.
- TM's from Generation III are now used.
- The Elite Four can be rechallenged, with new Pokémon teams consisting of at least one Generation II Pokémon.
- Ponyta, Magmar (LeafGreen only), and Moltres have been moved from their original location to One Island's Kindle Road and Mt. Ember.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The famous truck near the SS Anne makes another appearance in the FireRed and LeafGreen games. This time around Strength can actually be used on it and a player will receive a Lava Cookie.
- In the Pewter Science Museum, the model space shuttle has been renamed from Space Shuttle Columbia to just Space Shuttle. The Columbia was destroyed in a tragic explosion before the game's release. In newer versions of the game, it has been renamed to "Space Shuttle Discovery" but in the original FireRed and LeafGreen versions, it is left as "Space Shuttle".
- It is by far the only Pokémon game that they showed commecials for 1 year after it was made.
- The battle between Nidorino and Gengar in the opening movie is similar to the fight shown on Ash's TV in the first episode of Pokémon.
- Although it wasn't released in the United States or United Kingdom, Green was still remade, making U.S. Pokémon players confused, since Pokémon Red and Blue were the versions released in the U.S.
