Fire Red and Leaf Green Pokemon are two slightly varied versions of the same video game recently introduced by Nintendo. This has been the company’s strategy, as they often release paired versions of their games, such as Pokemon Gold and Silver. There are only minor differences between the two versions, which may only be noticeable to long-time players of Pokemon games.
- The main difference between Fire Red and Leaf Green lies in the number and types of Pokemon exclusive to each version.
- Some version-exclusive Pokemon in Fire Red include Oddish, Elekid, Psyduck, Ekans, Growlithe, Wooper, Skarmory, Quilfish, Scyther, Shellder, and Delibird, while Leaf Green exclusives include Magby, Bellsprout, Sandshrew, Vulpix, Azurill, Sneasel, Mantine, Misdreavus, Slowpoke, and Pinsir.
- Another difference between the two versions is the types of Deoxys encountered, which have distinct natures and do not evolve into other forms. In Fire Red, Deoxys have high attack, average speed, and low defense, while Leaf Green Deoxys have high defense but low speed and attack stats.
