Unfortunately, you can't do any multiplayer functions for Game Boy Advance games using the DS. Here's a statement released about it in their FAQ:

  • What it can play:
  • Game Boy Advance games in single-player mode only
  • Game Boy Advance videosWhat it cannot play:
  • Original Game Boy or Game Boy Color games
  • Game Boy Advance games in multi-player modeWhy there are limitations:
    There are two main reasons that the Nintendo DS is not compatible with older software. For one, the system is designed for wireless play and lacks a link cable port. Because older games aren't designed to use the wireless features, they can't communicate for multiplayer games.
    Also, the Nintendo DS lacks the special processor that is required to play these games. Because of the age of the processor, and the difficulty in adding that processor to an already highly complicated architecture, the processor was not included in the final design of the DS.
And the source.

Sorry about that!

If you still want your Pokémon to evolve or something, you can always migrate them over to a Diamond/Pearl game. Of course, this unfortunately doesn't help you in your situation of having them on the Pokédex in FireRed/LeafGreen, nor having them at all, really...
