Ok, we have a massive complaints thread, so what's good about FireRed/LeafGreen?

I have some good points:

-Lack of HMs!! Only Cut,Flash(which is better than in R/S/E),Fly,Surf,Waterfall!! Although if you go to the Sevii Islands Rock Smash appear.
-Sevii Islands!Some people love it, some hate it, but seeing as Battle Frontier couldn't be introduced in a remake, it's a fun area.
-Legends are optional!!! You don't get forced to battle Mewtwo,Zapdos,Moltres,Articuno if you don't want to.
-Nameable Rival!!(compared to R/S/E it's brilliant).

Hurrah, some positivity at last! I'll toast to that ^0^

✓ Having a Female option.
✓ Lovely remixes of the music. (imho)
✓ Bill having a sliiiightly more active role. (♥)
✓ Different text colours. I dunno, it was a nice touch. :3

I don't understand what you mean about being forced to battle Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres and Mewtwo, though?

I'm saying you don't get forced into it, like you have to battle Dialga,Palkia and Giratina in D/P/Pt respectively.

And while i never heard the originals, yep, those remixes are awesome

Ohhh, duh. I thought you meant you're forced to in RBY ^^ Sorry 'bout that.

The originals are good too, but the remixes do them great justice. (:

Despite these being my least favorite games of the series, they have their good points.

- Being able to tell what the Pokemon are. Don't get me wrong, though. My favorite sprites are from RGBY, but still, there are some where you can't tell what the Pokemon is.
- Lack of HMs. I only use Cut, Strength, Fly, and Surf. Hell, I have an HM slave for Cut. I ditch it after Celadon's gym.
- VS. Seeker. Best innovation in the Pokemon world ever.

Yes! I could live off of the Vs. Seeker.

..er, that came out wrong.

I did like the changing color of texts. Sprites in this game (well, 3rd gen overall) were the best imo.

Yeah. Vs. Seeker was mint.I prefer it to PokeNav. I just wish you had gym leader rematches.

What i also loved was how version exclusives were done, i.e. you got Arcanine in FireRed (which i don't have, but makes getting HeartGold better), and Ninetales in LeafGreen.And Starmie/Cloyster, Slowbro/Golduck, Sandslash/Arbok, Vileplume/Weepinbel,

-Sprites were a leap from R/S/E
-Overworlds were way better than in R/S/E
-Maps and builidings looked soooo much better.
-The TR sub-plot on 4 and 5 Island was a nice touch =)
-The Sevii Islands were an excellent touch.
-The Fame Checker was cool, it told you a lot more about the Gym Leaders, Oak, Bill, Daisy, the E4, and Dr. Fuji
-The E4 is a lot more of a challenge.
-Suicune, Raikou, and Entei make this game an instant win.

The best part of Fire Red is that it led to remakes of Gold and Silver as well...Just kidding..sort of.

But really, the best part of FR and LG were the links it made to G/S/C, such as the scientist talking about Silver, when he mentions Giovanni's kid. I also liked playing the original game, then being able to use some of the newer pokemon.

In Fire red there are many good things than Red,Yellow and Blue.In it there are new HMs and many new things.

I loved the Sevii Islands. Fighting the old Rocket admins from G/S, solving the probably hardest puzzle during the regular plot (the warehouse), the references to old games (including the remixes, of course), fighting strong trainers... it was a great touch.

I think the sevii islands were the best, and also the entire game soundtrack. Just listen to how heroic route 11 sounds!

- Leaf was just wonderful.
- Loved the small text
- Sprites were pleasing to the eyes
- I loved the fact that I could enjoy Team Rocket again. Team Magma and Aqua just weren't cutting it.

+Female character.
+++Most beautiful female character.
+Awesome remixes.
+Sevii Islands.
+The game itself. Best remake, and because it's just R/B with better graphics, best pokemon game. Kinda short, but IT WAS the best. Did I mention the female character? yes? Then for *insert odd excuse here* I mention her again!

Even though it's my most hated game in the series(only ones I hate) there were some good points.

-Leaf
-The Delivery Truck
-Mount Blaze

That's about it from me.

The fact that it kept shorts was awesome.

All of this, along with the Vs. Seeker and the Running Shoes. Those last two, the Sevii Islands, and the updated graphics make it so I'm more likely to pick these games up than the original G1 games that I grew up with.

I'll go with all that, particularly the Rocket Sevii Islands plot.

I like the Sevii Islands. It might be a small sidequest but it is still a fun part of the games that the originals did not have. I have played the original Blue and it was fun but the Sevii Islands made the games that much more fun than the regular versions.:)

I would say:
- the graphics and especially the sprites.
- the VS. SEEKER - this thing is amazing, it single handedly improved the originals tenfold IMO - best. item. ever.
- Female hero counterpart.

Every single bit of the game except for Rock Tunnel and Mount Moon.

The Sevii Islands locations and particularly the Trainer Tower. The latter is a bit more interactive than say, the Battle Tower, and its a shame they didn't bring that into the 4th generation.

Also, Vs. Seeker. Full of awesome.

My personal favorite part of the game is the champion battle against your rival and exploring all of the Sevii Islands.

I also liked the Johto remixes that were in the Sevii Islands. :]

LG had some great selling points, namely:


Good, remixed music;
Revamped graphics, colorful with beautiful sprites (compared to RSE);
Better region (Hoenn is simply annoying);
Zapdos :D



However, if I had to point out LG/FR's biggest flaw, it would definitely be the dogs having very bad IV's. That made getting good competitive dogs almost impossible if it werent for Events/HG-SS.

The original Pokemon is a game that needs little introduction. It birthed the modern digital cockfighting genre and introduced a generation of youngsters to the joys of pitting stupid animals against each other in brutal combat.Fire Red and Leaf Green aren't absolutely identical to their predecessors, but it'd be much faster to point out the differences than the similarities. These type of moves are stronger the higher your Attack is. The higher your Defense to these types of moves, the less damage they'll do.

I just like how simple everything was in this game.
It really brought us back to the basics of a Pokemon game, that hardcore players appreciated.

At least you could play Kanto without the annoying bag in the old games. Might go and play on it now :)
