Product Description

Product Description

Players battle, trade and collect Pokémon using a Game Boy Advance Wireless Adapter, which is sold separately. Using the new chat function, players can exchange game info., talk battle strategy or just shoot the breeze. For the first time, fans can access, trade and battle the Pokémon from their favorite games. More than 100 Pokémon wait to be discovered.

From the Manufacturer

The world of Pokémon has expanded. Pokémon technology makes its next quantum leap. We've seen the future, and it's all about Pokémon FireRed and Pokémon LeafGreen (sold separately). This package also includes a bonus Trainer's Guide filled with tips and other information.

The new games are set in Kanto, the region where Pokémon first took root and exploded into a major phenomenon, and the latest titles stuff in tons of exciting new features. One thing's for certain: when Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen get into Trainers' hands, Pokémon fans stand to become the coolest, most connected gaming community in the world.

Features

  • Return to the world of Kanto originally explored in Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue, where the adventure is brought to life better than ever with dazzling GBA graphics and dozens of surprising new features.
  • Experience the original duo's plot, prove yourself in the region's Pokémon League while single-handedly bringing down Team Rocket, plus pursue major new storylines that will add unexpected twists.
  • Once you prove yourself, you'll be able to bring the Pokémon you caught from Pokémon FireRed and Pokémon LeafGreen into Pokémon Ruby, Pokémon Sapphire and Pokémon Colosseum for GameCube!
  • Every Pokémon FireRed and Pokémon LeafGreen Game Pak comes with a GBA Wireless Adapter -- trade, battle and connect with your fellow Trainers wire-free!
When you get your copy of Pokémon FireRed or LeafGreen, you'll also nab Nintendo's cutting-edge peripheral: the Game Boy Advance Wireless Adapter. Upcoming Nintendo titles will feature Wireless Adapter gameplay in a variety of brilliant ways, but Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen will be the first to venture into the wireless gaming realm on the GBA. The Pokémon community will be brought together like never before.

When used with the Wireless Adapter, Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen will make you the hub of a thriving wireless community of Pokémon players. As other wireless Trainers come within reach of your adapter's range, you'll be able to communicate and play games together. As players leave your range, they'll vanish from your wireless network. It's an unbelievably cool way to tap into the fantastic power of the Pokémon gaming community.

Much of the wireless gaming in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen is concentrated in the Kanto region's Pokémon Centers, where you can join up to 39 other wireless Trainers in the Union Room for a free-for-all, or connect with just two or three in the Direct Corner. Battling and trading will be radically transformed by wireless possibilities when Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen hit the streets. Check out the Screenshots Gallery to see images of this new feature in action. The Big Picture

With Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen coming out soon, we thought it'd be handy to break down the ways in which the games are connecting to create one gigantic Pokémon world. Provided that all gameplay requirements are met, you can:

  • You can connect Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire to Pokémon FireRed/LeafGreen and trade/battle Pokémon between the games.
  • You can currently connect a Pokémon Ruby or Sapphire GBA Pak to the Pokémon Colosseum GCN game to trade/battle Pokémon between the two systems.
  • Shadow Pokémon that you Snag in Pokémon Colosseum's Story Mode can be used for competitions in Pokémon Colosseum's Battle Mode.
  • When the new GBA games are released on September 9, you'll be able to trade/battle Pokémon between Pokémon FireRed/LeafGreen and Pokémon Colosseum for the first time.
Gotta Breed 'Em All
We've witnessed many a debate over which region's got the greatest "starter Pokémon," and Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver fans always argue that Cyndaquil, Chikorita and Totodile reign supreme. Don't you wish you could settle that argument with a Pokémon Colosseum battle? You can. In Pokémon Colosseum's Story Mode, you can snag the triad's next evolutionary step -- Quilava, Bayleef and Croconaw, respectively -- then send them to Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, where you can breed them in Hoenn's Day Care.

If you breed a female Pokémon with a male that has a compatible Egg Type, you'll be sure to hatch the female Pokémon's earliest evolutionary form. With it, you can settle the "starter Pokémon" score anywhere you want: in Hoenn or back in Orre!

Obviously, Pokémon still has a large fan base, seeing as how this is currently the second most pre-ordered game, LeafGreen is the fourth, and Colosseum was the first back when it was released.

I have played the Japanese version of FireRed, and it is amazing. The graphics look beautiful, the sound is wonderfully redone, and the wireless adapter is one of the most brilliant GBA accessories I've seen. Tons of improvements over the Red and Blue versions.

Also, it will be fully compatible with all the existing third-generation Pokémon games (Ruby, Sapphire, Box, and Colosseum). I am looking forward to it's release in the US, and I strongly encourage everyone to take a look at this game.

I am a fan of all pokemon games. I have bought every pokemon game that came out. This one is so far the absolute best pokemon game that has been made.I purchased the game right away. This is why I like it. Like in Ruby & Saphire version you also have runnig shoes which allow you to run instead of walk. You also gat a chance to battle the first 8 gym leaders. In this game you are able to catch almost any pokemon.Except for Ruby & Sapphire pokemon. But you are allowed to trade & battle between Ruby or Sapphire & Fire Red. Their are a lot of new awsome features like Battle Tower & The Sevvi & Rainbow Islands . It is a challenge to beat this game because you have to fill up your pokedex to 352 pokemon. But if you have Ruby or Sapphire it gets pretty easy. I purchased this game in September & I still have not beaten it.Even though I think its so fun that I play it every day. I reccommend this game to all pokemon fans. You will not regret buying it.

Quickly, this is basically Pokemon Blue for GameBoy remade with better graphics and tons of new options. Why it's green this time around, I don't know... if you like "oldschool" Pokemon, you know what to expect.

Also quickly, I'm 21 and I love Pokemon. It's not just for kids! The strategy and the quality of the game are excellent, and it's sad to see the game typecast as being "just for kids".

Simply, you play a character whose name and gender are selectable. From the start, you're given a Pokemon, a healing Potion, and thrust into a world of battles and collecting. Your goal: to catch at least one of every Pokemon in the world, and to become the best trainer ever. To get there, you'll have to master the battle system, which is turns out to be kind of like a chess and RPG fusion. Your Pokemons' levels primarily affect their success in battle, but having the correct "type" of Pokemon also matters (a rock pokemon is weak against grass or water types, but virtually immune to lightning or fire types). It's simple to get in to, addictive to play, and can provide endless enjoyment as you link up with friends to battle or trade (you can only get all the available Pokemon by trading with other trainers).

For those familiar with Pokemon, exactly what's new?

-Several (~21) exclusive Pokemon.

-Links with FireRed, along with Sapphire and Ruby if you have Pokemon Colosseum. When you complete LeafGreen, you unlock certain items that make this game completely compatible with all the Link features of these other titles.

-Now in color, with new animations to match.

-New battles, including the four-Pokemon battles from recent titles where each side sends out two Pokemon at once.

Rumors have been spread that this game, when it comes out, will be boreing since its a remake of the original versions Red, Blue, and Green, but its not. The game takes place in Kanto and is like the other four, but seven new islands called the Rainbow Islands, have been added so you can collect them all. Plus, this game has all the pokemon, but you have to trade to get them all. I have played it in both english and Japenese ( people have translated it) and it is a quite decent game. Plus you can get National Dex so all 386 pokemon can be displayed once you have 60 pokemon and challenge the Elite Four twice with more powers and techniques the seond time. Its a lot of fun and it has the best graphics ever and it talks and has chat!!! I cant wait till September 9th!!! Im buying mine now and its gonna be great!!!! Trust Me!!! I have played it!!!

Do you Pokemon fans miss the old days? The days of black and white pixelated graphics? The days of catching all 151? The days of...well, I think you get the point. If you miss the original pokemon games, then this is the game for you! But, before you buy, I'm sure you'll want to know a few facts first.

The graphics have been totally redone! In full color and extensive detail, the graphics are *much* better than the average GBA game!

besides being the old game we all know and love, there is more than meets the eye! Natures (from the Ruby/Sapphire games) have been included! As well as Abilities, and the brand new moves from Ruby and Sapphire! Plus, two new forms of Deoxys, an upgraded Pokedex to show all 360+ Pokemon, and the most exciting addition, the Sevii Islands!

A group of seven islands, the Sevii islands are a refrshing addition. And since Pokemon (Ever since Gold and Silver) Pokemon can breed! Oh yeah, did I mention that there is a girl character now? In fact, the female character is based on the conceptual designs that they had wanted to include in Pokemon red and blue, but due to technological limitations, they couldn't add a female character in. Oh yeah, you can also get Shiny pokemon.

Shiny Pokemon are rare Pokemon, who are colored diffrently than usual. (I have a Golden Graveler, for instance) if u come across one, a thing of shimmery stars with appear around it. CATCH IT AT ALL COSTS!

Plus, you can get Johto Pokemon now too! (on the Islands) Unfortunately, you can only reach them after you defeat the Elite Four, which I, sadly have not yet. And this is why, folks, you should not have a Charizard go up against Lorelei of the Elite Four (99 percent of her Pokemon are half water type!
