I got this game a couple of months ago off ebay and knew it was a remake of pokemon blue. Why was it called Leaf green and not Water Blue you may ask? This is because the Japanese title of pokemon blue was pokemon green. Now you may say "I already have pokemon blue/red/yellow why would I want a remake?" My answer would be because even though blue/red/yellow was out-of-this-world, this game is 10 times better. This games graphics are way better than the originals and there is even more to do. After you do Blaines gym you are asked if you would like to visit the mystery islands where Johto pokemon may appear...
This game can link up to pokemon Colluseum and pokemon Ruby/Sapphire.The link play is excellent and so you don't have to go to the shops to get a tangeld up link cable(which can be used) you get a wireless adaptor which uses infrared to link up. This is a must have game for everyone with a Gameboy advanced/SP.

I first got a Pokemon game, with a Gameboy Colour when i was around 8/9 as a christmas present from my uncle. I remember playing Pokemon Blue all day, Boxing Day and i was thrilled to bits.

God only knows how many years on and here i am playing Pokemon Fire Red, and the memories are flooding back. If you have played the originals this will be very familiar to you, its the same story with the same Pokemon, just with animations and graphics similar to Pokemon Ruby, but don't let that put you off...

If you played the originals when i did, then this will seem like new to you, the music and Pokemon will make you think back. Yes, i did play the originals but i still find this quite challenging and very compelling and addictive. To be honest, i find myself playing this more than the latest Pokemon versions, diamond and pearl.

If your a Pokemon beginner or a seasoned veteran I'd still highly recommend this very well re-make of a instant phenomenon. There is so much to do on so many levels its accessible by all ages, whether your 8 or 38!!

Pokemon Leaf Green is a re-make of the original Pokemon game Pokemon Blue, but is it better than the older one? The answer is yes! Pokemon Leaf Green has better graphics, more modern Pokemon moves and better possibilities such as the mutiplayer room where you can trade Pokemon and battle out with your friends. Not to mention the free wireless adaptor that you get with the game. So your definitely getting your money's worth. Basically, you are a person (what they call a Pokemon Trainer) in the Pokemon World, formally known as Johto, and you are given a free Pokemon from your neighbour, Professor Oak. You have a choice between Charmander (fire), Squirtle (water) and Bulbasaur (leaf). Whichever one you pick, your rival, who is Oak's grandson picks the one most harmful to your Pokemon. So if you pick Charmander, he picks Squirtle because you are fire and he is water. The game unfolds and you find yourself in an amazing and fun adventure. This is a must have for any gamer. Get it (preferably from Amazon because it's cheaper than anywhere else)!

OK, before I even write this review, I would like to point out that FireRed is selling like mad. LeafGreen is less-popular, but there are SOME advantages if you don't have a few mates to trade with...

OK, first of all, the first releases of FR/LG had Wireless Adapters packaged with them, so there was no need to buy a new one.

Story: One day you wake up to find out that your next-door neighbor, Professor Oak, wants to see you. You travel there but he is not there. Eventually, you decide to go into the "Tall grass," but the Prof. stops you and takes you back to his lab. He gives you a choice of three starter Pokemon; Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbasaur,to accompany you on your journey to become the Pokemon champion. During your adventure, you manage to stop the evil Team Rocket, who want to steal Pokemon for their own nefarious purposes.

Gameplay: Pokemon is NOT child's stuff. It is one of the -if not-, THE best RPG series out there. The concept is so simple, yet so original. You catch Pokemon. You train your Pokemon. You battle your Pokemon. It is a very enjoyable loop that is just, well... Enjoyable!

Graphics: It may sound dumb to put "Graphics" in a Pokemon review, but the graphics are pretty good for a GBA game. Or a remake of an old GB game. They have nice, smooth sprites and all of the Pokemon (well, except for Ditto and Voltorb), have nice, detailed sprites.

Differences between FireRed and LeafGreen:
Finally, the part you've all been waiting for; the differences! I'll start off with THE most OBVIOUS difference: Both games feature a few different catchable Pokemon.

First off, the game is great. It's got a lot more to it than just Pokemon Blue. More pokemon, new adventures, and great graphics and sound.
But one of the main reasons I bought this game was the Wireless Adapter. Someone said it was infrared- it's actually using radio waves, so you don't have to be directly facing each other. You can sit in the front seat of a car and play against someone in the back seat of the car without turning around and having to point your GameBoys at each other. This isn't like on the GameBoy Color where you had to lie them both on the table and not bump them in fear of disrupting the connection, you can actually use the adapter on the move! There's even a indicator to tell you how your reception is.
So, the game is great, but the wireless adapter makes it 10x more worthwhile to buy .
