Changes

Trying to standardize the structure of game pages
** {{p|Mankey}} and {{p|Meowth}}, originally game-exclusive, are now available in both games, while {{p|Psyduck}}, {{p|Shellder}}, {{p|Slowpoke}}, and {{p|Staryu}} have become game-exclusives. Due to this change, {{p|Lickitung}}, which was originally available through an in-game trade by trading {{p|Slowbro}} in both Red and Blue, now is traded for {{p|Golduck}} in FireRed or Slowbro in LeafGreen.

* Dialogue text is rendered differently based on the gender of the [[non-player character]]s.
** In the Japanese versions, male NPCs are given a computer-style font while female NPCs show a font that resembles handwritten text. Text from other sources uses the same font as male NPCs.
** In non-Japanese versions, the differentiation is instead done with colors: male NPCs use blue text and female NPCs use pink text. Text from other sources is black.
* When entering certain locations such as [[Viridian Forest]] or [[Diglett's Cave]], an image of the location appears.
* A few scenes have been fixed.
** Professor Oak now walks over to the table and gives the player and rival their Pokédexes. In Generation I, the Pokedex sprites would instead vanish after the game says that the player obtained it without anyone having moved.
** The boy who prevents the player from leaving Pewter City before Brock is defeated (by escorting the player to the Gym) now returns the way he came. In Generation I, he would instead walk east and vanish offscreen, where a barrier prevents the player from walking.
 
===Music===
* The music has been remixed to take advantage of the [[Game Boy Advance]]'s power.
* Most of the themes themselves remain the same, with some exceptions listed below.
** In Generation I, the {{FB|Kanto|Power Plant}} used the [[Team Rocket Hideout|Rocket Hideout]] theme. In FireRed and LeafGreen, the Power Plant uses the {{ka|Pokémon Mansion}} theme.
** In Generation I, the standard Trainer battle music was used for the three [[Elite Four]] members other than Lance, which used the Gym Leader battle theme. In FireRed and LeafGreen, the Gym Leader background music is used for all four members.
** In Generation I, when [[Professor Oak]] congratulates the player after becoming the Pokémon League [[Champion]], a slower version of the theme from [[Viridian City]], [[Pewter City]], and [[Saffron City]] played. In FireRed and LeafGreen, a happier-toned version of the [[Pallet Town]] background music plays at this point instead.
* Some places in the [[Sevii Islands]] use remixed versions of [[Johto]] music themes from Gold, Silver, and Crystal.
** The towns of [[Four Island (town)|Four Island]] and [[Five Island (town)|Five Island]] use the theme from [[Azalea Town]] and [[Blackthorn City]].
** The towns of [[Six Island (town)|Six Island]] and [[Seven Island (town)|Seven Island]] use the theme from [[Violet City]] and [[Olivine City]].
 
==[[Game-exclusive Pokémon|Game exclusives]]==
The following Pokémon are only obtainable in one game of this pair. In order to obtain Pokémon exclusive to the other game of this pair, they must be traded either from that game or from another compatible game of [[Generation III]] which has that Pokémon available. In addition, {{p|Mew}}, several {{cat|Generation II Pokémon}} and all {{cat|Generation III Pokémon}} (except {{p|Azurill}}, {{p|Wynaut}}, and {{p|Deoxys}}) must be traded from a [[Hoenn]]-based game.

==Connectivity==
FireRed and LeafGreen were created as a result of the first [[Generation III]] games, {{game|Ruby and Sapphire|s}}, lacking backward compatibility with Generations {{gen|I}} and {{gen|II}}. [[Trade|Trading]] between these games and the third Hoenn-based game, {{game|Emerald}}, is possible through the traditional [[Game Link Cable]]. Trading with other copies of FireRed or LeafGreen as well as with Emerald may also be done through the [[GBA Wireless Adapter]], though Ruby and Sapphire are not compatible with it. Using a GameCube-GBA cable, players may also trade party Pokémon with {{g|Colosseum}} and {{Pokémon XD}}, but only after the player has obtained the {{OBP|Ruby|item}} and {{OBP|Sapphire|item}} and given them to [[Celio]].

===Typographical errors===
[[File:Pokcet.png|thumb|The Teachy TV error, showing "Pocket" as "Pokcet"]]
* Any {{pkmn|category}} names with more than one word are [[List of glitches in Generation III#Pokédex category oversight|cut off]] in early English releases of the games, causing for example Pokémon like {{p|Pidgey}} to be listed as "Tiny Pokémon" rather than "Tiny Bird Pokémon." [[Pokédex data structure in Generation III|Internal game data]] lists the categories the same as they appear in {{game2|Ruby|Sapphire|Emerald}} and other games, indicating a mistake in the Pokédex where a blank space is misread for the terminating byte for the name. This was addressed in the later Player's Choice releases of the game. Alongside the missing word "Presents" in the game's opening, this is the easiest way to tell whether a particular game is a v1.0 or v1.1 release.
