View Full Version : Fire red or Leaf Green?

July 22nd, 2008, 3:55 PM
I'm interested to know who chose which game (or both :P) and why...

personally, i chose leaf green so i can get ninetales ^-^

Fire Red... I just prefer red as a colour and couldn't be bothered looking about for what Pokemon were present. :/

I chose Fire Red.

Why? Because I always buy the "warmer" color's first. It's a tradition that my friends and I started. It goes all the way back to the days of Red and Blue. All my friends played Blue, I played Red. I always have to be the oddball in the group. ;)

I chose leaf green. I am not to sure why.. maybe because I already had pokemon red from gen 1

July 23rd, 2008, 4:27 PM
Well when it came out I chose FireRed. But I don't see a difference except the pokemon :P

July 23rd, 2008, 4:28 PM
I have both, although I don't play my FireRed anymore because it won't save. X_X

I actually got FireRed first, and bought the guide because I couldn't figure it out. After it broke I bought my fake LeafGreen just so I could tell myself I wouldn't have wasted any money buying a guide that I couldn't use anymore. >.< Anyways, I like them both equally.

I usually just choose whichever game has a cooler pokemon on the cover, but since I played blue I bought firered

I own LeafGreen. I picked it over FireRed because I like the color green more than red, Venusaur more than Charizard, and I like being slightly different from my friends.

I like the color red over green, and plus, I always buy the game of the pair that would normally be listed first (ex. Red, Gold, Ruby, FireRed, Diamond) and usually the name is more appealing than the other.

I chose LeafGreen. Pretty much because my brother bought FireRed and because of the better selection IMO of Pokemon available in LeafGreen. As my starter, I actually chose Squirtle 0_O

July 23rd, 2008, 5:38 PM
...and my vote pulls it to 6-7 for Leaf Green!

Leaf Green gets Sandshrew, Vulpix, and Staryu, while Fire Red's best exclusive is merely Skarmory, plus I like Venusaur better than Charizard on the cover.

I chose Leafgreen over Firered simply because there was no more Firereds in Walmart when I left to buy one...

Besides, what would you choose? A gross wet leaf or an awesome burny fire? <---(Quote stolen from a videogame magazine! xP)
Since you can eat certain vegetation, I happily chose Leafgreen xD

Thats normal...right? Jk

Lol, same reason i chose red, prefer the color red so i picked that, didn't really care which pokemon were on which game.

I own Pokemon Fire Red. I got sick of the 7 million pokemon that they have in the later games, so I guess it was the nostalgia that got me. I think I just missed good ol' Charizard.

July 23rd, 2008, 7:12 PM
I got both, i got FR when it came out because i never pick Charmander as my starter because it is too overused and i had to then desided between Growlith and Vulpix for my fire type and i have allways prefered Growlith and then got Leaf Green (and sapphire) the same day i got Diamond so i could finish the National dex as best i could.

I chose Lg, because there hasn't been an american green yet, so yea.

July 23rd, 2008, 7:31 PM
Well when it came out I chose FireRed. But I don't see a difference except the pokemon :P
That is actually the only difference aside from the games' case colour and sticker, I think.

Firered because you can get Growlithe/Arcanine =)

FireRed, most good Pokemon are there Shellder, Cloyster, Growlithe, Arcanine, Murkrow, Remoraid, Octillery etc...

July 23rd, 2008, 10:42 PM
FireRed is way better....pokemon and color wise. lol

July 23rd, 2008, 11:00 PM
I suggest firered because it has a better selection of pokemon(shellder instead of slowpoke) but that is the main difference in it.
it depends on what you like.
but just to be sure, here is a link.
so i can't know how to put links on words.sue me.

July 25th, 2008, 6:03 AM

I have Leaf Green only because of Sneasel, Sneasel FTW ^^

I have FireRed and I really enjoy it but I do miss not being able to get certain pokemon like Ninetails and Bellsprout (that you can get on Leaf Green). But you can easily trade to get them pokemon =)

July 25th, 2008, 12:27 PM
They ARE the same, just a waste of hard earned money to buy both of these games. Hey, play FR on your PSP and include the pokemon to appear in the wild from LG.

July 25th, 2008, 12:31 PM
I chose both just because, but I traded in Leaf Green. I like both though.

I bought fire red, mostly because me and my brother by one of the duo so we can trade well so it didn't matter pokemon wise. But i really hate the colour green, grass sucks, trees suck, my fence sucks!

July 26th, 2008, 1:26 AM
I had Firered but lost it and now only have Leafgreen. Both are pretty much the same gaming purposes but some Pokemon that appear are different when the national dex is obtained. I like both

July 26th, 2008, 5:04 AM
I like FireRed Only cuz of charizard even tho they are the same.

July 26th, 2008, 10:43 PM
I got Pokemon FireRed
Because it had Charizard as the mascot!!!! =P

July 26th, 2008, 11:37 PM
I got both, why? Got them from EBGames (now Gamestop), Buy 2 get 1 free on used... Grabbed both of those and Emerald...

I own both of them, my friend has my copies somewhere around his house, as well as my PBR >.>


July 28th, 2008, 5:34 PM
I got FireRed because i hate green =D

July 28th, 2008, 5:55 PM
I had leaf green first, but it wasn't by choice.
I got it as a gift.
I wanted the "cooler" one though, so I was kind of disappointed when I got it.
