Fire Red, I dunno why, I always just preferred FR over LG.
I walk on wounds that seldom proves to slow me down. I laugh this constant pain away so you can tell but there it lies under the smile.

It doesn't matter which one I play, I always want the other.
Initially, I got them both on release day. A couple years back I lost my LeafGreen.
Between the two, I'd say FireRed for the sole purpose that I can get my favorite Pokémon of all time- Scyther.
However, I'm redoing the game now, and I REALLY want Pinsir, and Houndour, and especially Misdreavus. I really hate how the two games divide my interests. Main reason I wish they had made SeaBlue like they had originally planned to. R/S/E and FR/LG/SB because more selection. Too bad they couldn't add any more areas. One of the few things that prevented it's release D:

Got Leaf Green since I previously played Red and Blue, not that that mattered. :P But I did eventually trade for my friend's Fire Red, and they're literally the same to me.

Leaf Green since it was the first Pokemon game I ever played and it has my favorite Pokemon on the cover. Leaf green is leading in the votes thanks to me.

Well, this all depends on what Pokemon someone likes/dislikes that are version exclusives. I picked FR because of Electabuzz & Growlithe.

I say LG simply due to the fact that you can get staryu/starmie. In FR if I didn't pick squirtle as my starter than I would be stuck with Lapras as a water type and that's a no-go for me.

I got Leaf Green just because I didn't know the difference between the two games at the time, and just had to pick one. I later came to regret that, because yet again I'd chosen a version lacking Growlithe, although luckily for me, my friend got Fire Red, so everything was well ^^

I would have to say Fire Red seeing as the version exclusives are what made my decision. Both Vileplume and Bellossom are exclusive to Fire Red and so that is what swayed me.

Pretty much this, I was 10 & fire was cool & Charizard was cool. I'd still pick it now, only Pokemon that's LG exclusive that I'd want is Pinsir.

I'd been watching the anime for a while, and Charizard was my favourite so I got Fire Red. I got Leaf Green as well, but I didn't have a choice anyway- I was only 6 years old. Regardless, I still prefer Fire Red. I hate the Starmie is a LG exclusive :'(

There aren't many Lions left in the world now, yet poachers still exist. Even though it is illegal it still happens. Don't have anything to do with poaching - Take pride in your actions (pun intended)

One thing i'm thinking about is why everybody is saying that Growlithe is in FireRed. I never found any when i had fire red, yet i found so many in leaf green. Something doesn't add up.

Im not much of a fan of FR or LG, but I'll go with LeafGreen because of the version exclusives.

I honestly did not bother to look at the exclusive Pokemon inside of these games. When both of these games came out, I was lucky enough for my mom to get both of the games for me. I started playing Pokemon Leaf Green first due to picking it randomly and every 2 hours, I would switch to another game. But if I had to chose a game, I would have to chose LeafGreen because I like Venusaur more than Charizard and because I chose it first.
