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 have imported Pokemon FireRed from Japan and played through the Elite Four and a majority of the Island areas. It seems as though everything they've done wrong in the past, they've done right this time. Even some aspects that you never knew were lacking have been enhanced. Best of all, you will finally be able to get every last Pokemon (aside from Mew, Celebi, and Deoxys) if you've got access to Ruby/Sapphire, Colosseum, and FireRed/LeafGreen. The revamped Red/Blue from yesteryear will bring back a lot of old memories with the nearly identical storyline, but once you complete the main story, a whole new set of sub-stories begin. There will be enhanced e-Reader support and enhanced trading via the wireless adapter. If you get close to someone who's playing in the Union room, their character will show up in your Union Room, even if you can't see them. They could be in a nearby car or at another table at the same restaurant. As long as you stay close enough, you can trade with someone without ever even knowing who it was :)
Definitely get this when it comes out if you are even remotely interested in Pokemon. This truly is the best edition yet!

When Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire came out, I was very distraught to learn that some of my favorites from the original Game Boy generation, particularly Nidoking and Persian, were absent from them. Furthermore, since the Advance Generation employs a different system for Pokemon stats and is on vastly different hardware, I could not upload my power Pokemon from Crystal or Blue. And there were some things that annoyed me about Ruby/Sapphire, including the spineless rival and outlandish town concepts (Who builds a town atop trees or inside a crater?).

Enter LeafGreen. This game, along with the companion game FireRed, takes us back to the world where Pokemon got its start, but now with all of the Advance generation upgrades. The graphics are pretty good, and the lead girl character is the cutest I have seen in a Pokemon game.

Most of the dialogue remains unchanged from the original games. You have the shorts-obsessed youngsters, the really sensitive Lasses, and that poor scientist that was shipped off to the Russian Tiksi Branch of the regions major corporation. Team Rocket and its enigmatic boss Giovanni are here in all their glory, as are the original crew of gym leaders and Elite Four.

In addition to the main region, there is a chain of islands. Here, there are some new quests and some of the Johto Pokemon are found out there.

The controls are pretty much exactly as they were in Ruby/Sapphire, which means the menus and commands are well designed and intuitive. A device called the Vs Seeker allows you to challenge trainers you've already beaten. It doesn't take too long to recharge and is a great way to level up your army and earn cash.

When this version first came out, I didn't buy it right away. Frankly, I was more than a little upset that Nintendo was trying to pass off this remake as a new game. But a few years later, I had the itch to play the original versions of Pokemon again, and figured, "Why not get the graphically updated GBA version?"

I won't bore you by describing the basic mechanics of the game; anyone who hasn't been living in a cave for the past decade knows how Pokemon works, and this is no different. Suffice to say, it's a remake of Pokemon Red/Blue.

What makes this well worth a purchase, though, is the surprising amount of new content. I was pleased enough to be replaying the best Pokemon iteration with vastly improved graphics, but I was euphoric when I discovered the boatload of new stuff to explore near the end of the game. There's an entirely original new area of Kanto to travel to, filled with Pokemon to catch, puzzles to solve, items to find, people to meet...even yet another Team Rocket-infested base. This is no tacked-on afterthought, it's a whole new chapter.

This, along with the liberal sprinkling of improvements throughout the game that I'll let you discover for yourself, make this a great buy for anyone who feels nostalgic for Red and Blue.

Title; Pokemon Fire Red
Players;1-40 (in the union room)
Genre; RPG
Introduction; Pokemon Fire Red and Leaf Green are both remakes of the original two Pokemon games that launched in Japan which were Pokemon Red and Pokemon Green. The mass popularity of these games then led to the release of Pokemon Blue, and then Pikachu (Yellow as we know it)version.
Review; Pokemon Fire Red and Leaf Green are definately my most anticipated titles at the moment. Why? Because of four reasons.
1.It's OFFICIAL POKEMON!
2.It comes with the super-cool Wireless Adapter which clicks into the holes either side of the link cable port and the link cable port and allows you to play Pokemon Fire Red/Leaf Green WIRELESS!
3.Every place has had a complete makeover, and the sound has been improved too, making the graphics as good as Ruby/Sapphire!
4.Nine new islands have been added to these games, but they aren't like Johto, Kanto, Hoenn or Orre. No, they are just a few towns each.
