Key Items, Action Replay & Cheats for "Pokemon FireRed"
- Trading between different versions of the Pokemon games enables players to keep a wider range of Pokemon, since certain types of Pokemon are rare in each version. "Pokemon Fire Red" is automatically able to trade with "Pokemon Leaf Green," but to unlock trading with "Ruby" and "Sapphire" versions, collect the Sapphire and Ruby in game items. Go back to the first island, then go to the Network Machine. Select the stones to fix the machine, then, save the game. Connection between "Ruby" and "Sapphire" versions will now be possible.
- Some Pokemon are missing from the "Fire Red" version and must be traded from "Leaf Green," "Ruby" or "Sapphire" versions. These Pokemon include Sandshrew, Sandslash, Vulpix, Ninetales, BellSprout, WeepingBell, Victreebell, Slowpoke, Slowbro, Slowking, Staryu, Starmie, Magmar, Magby, Pinsir, Azurill, Marill, Azumarill Mistreavious, Sneasel, Remoraid, Octillery and Mantine. Additionally, collecting all Pokemon (including these "trade-only" types), will complete your National PokeDex and unlock the Diploma achievement.
