Pokémon LeafGreen User Reviews
The idea of remaking anything is something that's often met with disapproval, and for very good reason. More often than not, a remake is devised, often citing money and a lack of creativity under the guise of “improving the classic, making it more up to date” as reasons for doing such a thing. Admittedly, there are some remakes that do succeed over their originals like the remake of the first Resident Evil for the Gamecube, but more often than not, they feel less refreshing and more like corporate greed at its finest. Having said that, I was ecstatic for a remake of Pokemon...
Pokemon LeafGreen is set out in Kanto, the original region of Red, Blue, and Yellow. It is a remake, but that does not make it any less better. Some good points about it were the graphics, gameplay, playing value, sounds, and the controls.
The graphics were done very well, with new sprites for every Pokemon. This is not an easy task, and if can take years to make all new sprites, especially since there are 365 Pokemon. The attack animations are also very cool to watch, and took time also, since there are many, many attacks. Another graphic aspect is outside of battles, with the trees, grass, and character sprites. They make it look real, which is very cool.
The gameplay was superb, and it gives you 300+ hours of things to do. You can beat the elite four, train Pokemon, explore the Sevii Islands, and do many other things!
I enjoyed the sounds, because everything was different. Each Pokemon had their own sound, and their was music with the field and things to do. I don't listen to music on games too much, but I have to say, if you aren't listening to this, you're missing out.
The controls are the same, but good, Pokemon controls. The controls can be used to battle, access the help system (more in Comments), and go through the fields and adventure.
Everything in the game affects one another, such as Base Stats, EV's, IV's, and Natures. (See in Comments). This is good because it adds a lot more exitement to building a great Pokemon, and much more to the game.
To me, it was extremely similar to Red and Blue, by way too much. After the game, it was also very difficult and confusing to get far, and it took a guide to help. Most veterans of the game had to use one, and that includes me. The Sevii Islands are very useful, once you do get to them, so don't give up. Leveling up was very hard, because it was hard to keep up with all the other trainers and gym leaders. I would have liked it more if they would have given more wild Pokemon that were good sooner in the game, and more water types. Fire types were also hard to come by, and took a lot of looking. The Sevii Islands were very annoying, also.Summary:
The same old, same old - but still amazing and fun - Pokemon story: You are a young teenager, who wants to become a Pokemon Master. When you start, your mom tells you that your rival was looking for you. You go out, and, after venturing into the grass (something you should never do if you do not have any Pokemon), you are confronted by Proffesor Oak. After a scolding, he brings you to his lab, where you can choose from 3 Pokemon to start out with: Squirtle, Charmander, or Bulbasaur. Whatever Pokemon you choose, your rival will choose the one that has a type advantage over. They al...

Leaf Green is one of the best games I've ever owned. An outstanding remake of Pokemon Blue, this game has better detail, graphics, role play, and storyline.
Choosing your gender is something I've been waiting for for years to come. I finally get to walk around being a girl; instead of a guy!
In addition to choosing your gender, there's so much more this game has to offer than Pokemon Blue, Red and Yellow.
There are an additional 7 Islands called "Sevii Islands". There are surprises around every corner of these islands! There are many (new!) things on these islands; such as a Breeding Center, G...

I bought my GBA just so I could play this game. And I wasn't disappointed. This remake of the original R/B/Y is great in nearly every way. You travel through the familiar Kanto region battling gym leaders and trying to become a pokemon master. And it's not an easy task. As you battle your way through the gym leaders, you will be challenged by a variety of other trainers. Once you beat the Gym Leaders, you challenge the Elite Four, then the champion. If you manage to survive, you will be crowned the new Pokemon League Champion and you'll be entered into the Hall of Fame. After your Hall of ...
Ok, so everyone's heard of Pokemon right? And people will probably remember the first GBA games! Pokemon Yellow, Red and Blue. Looking at this game, you really notice how much better they could be! Just to begin with, I will say that no, this is not an entire new pokemon game... It's just a remake of the first ones with extras. But don't go discarding it just because of that fact! When you play this game, it makes you remember what Pokemon used to be about! Everything is smoother, more graphical and there are some extra places you can go so you don't get bored!
You start in Pallet town a...

- okay graphics
- More fun than the others
- Some pokemon you can't get in FireRed
Its too traditional and repetitive if you ask me, and it seems just like another "become the pokemon master and you rock" game.Summary:
First of all, I really think this game is a lot better than the other ones. For starters, there are tons and tons of pokemon in this game that it'll make your head spin. There are 386 pokemon to catch in the game, and trust that it will take quite a while to actually capture them. That is another added plus because its longer than the usual ones, meaning there is more room for entertainment, and of course, it makes the game more enjoyable. Another plus is that the graphics arent really that boring as compared to the other, past pokemon games, so its also something else to look foward to whe...
