[COLOR=firebrick]Has anyone heard news of a Pokemon Fire Red and Pokemon Leaf Green which should be coming out in Japan? I heard it will link up with Ruby, Sapphire and Colosseum. I've also heard colosseum will be much better than the N64 Stadium games with an added RPG mode! Ninty will also be releasing Red and Blue, but at first they were only going to release one. I'm a bit confused about the situation so I would be greatful if someone could clear it up and give updated information. :)

Nintendo of America released three versions of the same RPG on the Game Boy system (Pokemon Red, Pokemon Blue, and Pokemon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition...Pokemon Green was only released in Japan), and three versions of the game for the Game Boy Color (Pokemon Gold, Pokemon Silver and Pokemon Crystal, all with slight tweaks in the later updates. Pokemon: Leaf Green Version and Pokemon: Fire Red Version will most likely build off the existing RPG design from Ruby and Sapphire, while including access to previously locked Pokemon creatures so gamers can catch them in their copy of the game.

Fire Red and Leaf Green will be compatible with Ruby and Sapphire, so creatures caught in one version of the game will be transferrable to the others. Also, Fire Red and Leaf Green will also be compatible with Pokemon Box and Pokemon Colosseum for the GameCube console.[/quote][/size]

[color=darkblue]Not surprising from Nintendo, as stated in the article, but it will be nice for Ru/Sp players to catch other Pokémon and transfer them over.[/color]

Nintendo officially announced the new additions to the Pokemon RPG series for the Game Boy Advance, an "update" to the adventure originally released on the Game Boy about a half-decade ago. Pokemon: Fire Red and Pokemon: Leaf Green are the next two games that continue the series on the handheld, and over the weekend the Japanese Pokemon site revealed one brand new shot of the adventure running on the GBA.

Because the game's an update to the original Pokemon (Red, Blue in the US), players will begin their quest with one of the three original starter Pokemon critters, either Squirtle, Bulbasaur, or Charmander. This edition will be 100% trade and battle compatible with Pokemon: Ruby Edition and Pokemon: Sapphire Edition, which also means that there will be quite a few creatures that couldn't be caught in Ruby and Sapphire which will be readily available in Fire Red and Leaf Green.

Of course, these new Pokemon games will also be compatible with the upcoming Pokemon Colosseum GameCube 3D battle game so players can upload their characters to the console.

No release date, either in the US or Japan, have been revealed.[/quote][/size]

[color=darkblue]Equally nice addition. (See attachment) But this next little bit is what's got my interest piqued:[/color]

[size=1][quote][b][i]Just for a change of pace, cited from IGN.com[/i][/b]

Satoru Iwata has said that the new Pokemon Leaf Green and Fire Red will ship with a [b]wireless adapter[/b] which will enable players to overcome the technical hurdles of linking up. [/quote][/size]

[color=darkblue]Say it with me, people: Oooooooo. I'm guessing it'll be exactly like the infared port on GBC and should link up like people did with Mystery Gift. I know I'll be trying to get this when it comes out. Although I will have to get another GBA...

All in all, I think this is pretty cool. I haven't heard anything about an RPG mode on Colloseum, but I shall surely be looking into it.[/color]

[color=indigo]If Fire Red and Leaf Green give you access to the entire Pokémon world (Kanto, Johto, and Hoenn) and all the Pokémon (or at least be able to trade with R/S/FR/LG to get all of them), I'll definitely get the Leaf Green version. If they're only Red and Blue with updated graphics and maybe also access to the G/S/C Pokémon, which is what it sounds like from that article, no way. I'd rather just play my Yellow or Gold version again and save $30. Having to trade between two different versions to get all the Pokémon was fine, but having four different versions splitting up the Pokémon [i]and[/i] the overworld? I'm sorry, but that's going too far; I'm not going to pay for multiple games just so I can explore all of one world and get the rest of the old Pokémon.

Oh, and as for the wireless adapter, I'm hoping it means [url=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?threadid=31613]this[/url]. If it's just another infrared thing, I don't really care. I never got to do the Mystery Gift thing even once, except with Pokémon Stadium 2. And with that you go through a Transfer Pak to the game -- it's not even with an actual person.

Oh, and by the way, I'm changing the title of the thread to be a little less lengthy, and more specific.[/color]

[SIZE=1][COLOR=indigo]What? And I got all those codes for all those Pokemon for nothing...oh well, at least I have them now, they're just not "official." Nonetheless, I'm looking forward to them![/COLOR][/SIZE]
