Just like the original Pokémon Blue and Green, Pokémon is still very addictive. The first Story of Pokémon Go may take up to 25 immersive hours. Once you have finished your first mission, then other Pokémon become available and you have the opportunity to capture them, and then go back and challenge rival trainers.

Generally, like all Pokémon games, Pokémon Fire Red is a game of strategy and fun. You have to know which Pokémon to enter into a battle against another trainer. This game allows you to have 6 Pokémon at any one time, and you have to choose the best whenever you come across a rival.

The game is quite exciting and here we will look at some of the aspects that you did not know about Pokémon Fire Red.

Game Boy Advance version of Pokémon Fire Red

Part 1: About the Pokémon Go Fire Red

Pokémon Fire Red is a rehash of the original Pokémon Red, which was released in Japan in 1996, together with Pokémon Green. Fire Red takes you back to the original story, just like Star Wars did, and recreates it with a little more detail and fun.

The game does not change much in terms of the objectives; you are to catch and train your Pokémon and fight to become the head Pokémon Master in the world. The game comes with upgraded visuals, and has a wireless link for trading with other people. You may also trade and battle the original Pokémon with the new Sapphire and Ruby Pokémon editions.

The game can link up with other Pokémon games and trade and change Pokémon. There are various extra functionalities that you can obtain via the new link-up, such as Pokémon Coliseum.

Many players are much aware of the original Pokémon Red and Blue, but do not know much about Pokémon Yellow and Green. Here are some interesting tidbits about these two versions:

The difference with Pokémon Yellow

The main differences that Pokémon Yellow has versus Red and Blue are changes that aid the game in reflecting the first seasons of Pokémon anime. Here are the main changes:

  • The player does not start with the starter Pokémon found in Red and Blue. In this case, they start off with a Pikachu, which is a companion of the trainer through the game. The player can trade the other three starters from trainers as the game proceeds.
  • All rivals start off with an Eevee, which evolves in various ways depending on the type of battles you meet it in. The Eevee will evolve into Jolteon if you are victorious in the battle at the lab and the route 22 battle. If you win the battle at the lab and not that on route 22, he becomes Flareon. If you lose both battles, you get Vaporeon.
  • With HM02, Charizard learns how to fly.
  • The Pikachu has a surfing mini-game
  • Teams for Gym leaders are different and reflect the Pokémon that they own in the game.
  • Ekans, Meowth and Koffing are the Pokémon that appear with James and Jessie, and cannot be caught when playing Pokémon Yellow.
  • The Game gives Trainers and Pokémon new updated sprites but the back-sprites remain the same as those in Pokémon Red and Blue.

The difference with Pokémon Green

Very many people have been asking why there wasn’t Pokémon Green, or why the English Pokémon Green is so shallow.

Well, the answer is quite simple; Pokémon Green is a Japanese-only version of the game.

So did people get ripped off because they could not play Pokémon Green if they were not in Japan?

The answer is No!

Granted, Pokémon Green was launched initially with Pokémon Red and Green was only available to people in Japan. However, when the demand grew, Pokémon Green was updated to Pokémon Blue in English.

Yes, Pokémon Blue is a remake of Pokémon Green, but has better audio and visuals. This means that Japan Got Red and Green, while the rest of the world Got Red and Blue.

Anyone who is selling off an English version of Pokémon Green is selling a hacked version and this is illegal.

Part 2: What level should I evolve Pikachu Fire Red?

Pikachu (left) evolves to Raichu (right)

The Pikachu that you get when you start playing Pokémon Fire Red cannot evolve until it has passed level 24. If you try to evolve it before, you will lose a TM when you are trying to teach it to use Thunderbolt. The best level to evolve Pikachu, especially into Raichu is Level 26.

Part 3:How do you evolve Pikachu Fire Red?

You should not evolve Pikachu until you get to level 24. At level 26, you can evolve Pikachu into Raichu, then next evolutionary generation and this is how you go about it.

  • Travel to Celedon city with your Pikachu.
  • Enter the celadon department Store, which is depicted by a tall Purple Tower.
  • Once inside the store, head to the elevators or stairs and travel to the 4th floor,
  • Once you get there, buy a Thunderstone
  • Now dig into your bag and then give the thunderstone to your Pikachu.
  • Instantly, the Pikachu will evolve into Raichu.

Part 4:How do you stop Pikachu from evolving in Fire Red?

If you want your Pikachu to stay the same companion throughout the game or quest, you should not let it evolve into Raichu or any other Pokémon. There are two very simple ways to ensure this.

  • Pikachu will only evolve when they are given thunderstone. That is it. If you do not want your Pikachu to evolve, then make sure that you do not give it a thunderstone at any time.
  • If you feed it a thunderstone by mistake, then hit the “B” key and then let it hold the “Everstone”. This will stop the evolution and let it stay as Pikachu. You have to be very fast to stop it in this way and you must be having an everstone.

Basically, if you want to keep Pikachu from evolving, make sure that you keep the thunderstones away from him.

Part 5:Tips for playing Pokémon Go Fire Red

Pokémon Fire Red is an exciting version of the Pokémon Go game. Although it is a remake of the original Pokémon red, it has some extra challenges. Here are some tips on how to lay and progress in Pokémon Go Fire red.

  • When facing a gym leader, do not fight unless you are at least 5 levels ahead of him or her.
  • When you go up against wild Pokémon, make sure that you use the MewTwo, which has the ability to pick up items. This will help you pick up berries, rare candles and a host of goodies that you can use later on.
  • It is best that you do not use powerful Pokémon against weaker ones. This is a waste of valuable power. Use Pokémon that have almost similar abilities.
  • If you are looking for Deoxys when playing Fire Red, simply go to Birth Island and he will be there. One thing is that it will have a lot of power when you get it form the island.
  • Many people say that you have to use your Masterball in order to capture MewTwo. This is a waste of resources. Simply let it weaken and use the ultraballs.
  • Deoxys is a powerful Pokémon and having one will upgrade our position within the game universe. Capturing Deoxys may require up to 10 Pokémon that have level 100. This is why looking for shortcuts to capture Deoxys is a great way to beat the odds, travel to Birth Island and get the Pokémon.
