The Pokemon franchise is no stranger to making fantastic remakes. FireRed and LeafGreen are two examples of how to perfectly remake a game by adding in a bit of extra content for players. For the most part, these two games mimic the Blue and Red versions almost perfectly; the trades, battles, and gym lineups are the exact same.

One glaring difference is the addition of new Pokemon and the ability to visit the Sevii Islands after beating the Elite Four. While some players may remember all of the trades from there, Blue/Red playthrough others may find it a bit harder. Below is every available Pokemon trade in FireRed and LeafGreen. Players should note that in these game"s trades will be the same level as your original Pokemon.

Updated on February 8th, 2021 by Jessica Thomas: The world of Pokemon is a captivating place that offers the unique ability to befriend and battle intriguing creatures. For trainers, it can be a bit hard to capture all their favorite Pokemon, so trades were invented to help fans get those hard-to-get creatures. Firered and Leafgreen are based on the games that started it all and contain the same trades as the first games. These trades are the only way to get some rarer Pokemon like Mr.Mime, making them essential to gamers who have their eye on completing filling out the game"s Pokedex. Below every trade is listed out along with the trades location in the game.


Pokemon anime Mr Mime
The very first trade players will be able to do is for an Abra, which can be found easily in the wild and a Mr.Mime. Even with all the additions to FireRed and LeafGreen, this is still the only way to get a Mr.Mime besides trading with another trainer or using the daycare after they complete the game for breeding. The trainer can be found in the house beside Diglett"s Cave on Route 2.

The Mr.Mime, he will trade gamers will have a timid nature and won"t be holding an item. If they have trouble catching an Abra in the wild, then they can obtain one at the Game Corner.

Anime Pokemon Nidoran Male Cry
This is actually a trade that was very unbalanced in the original Blue and Red games. In this updated version, players will trade either a Nidoran for the rarer one of the opposing gender. In FireRed, they will be asked for a male Nidoran while in LeafGreen, they will need a female Nidoran. To go through with this trade, gamers will need to visit the north exit of the Underground Tunnel on Route 11.

Both options will come holding a tiny mushroom, and the male will be named Mr.Nido and the female Ms. Nido.

Similar to the above trade, players will be offered a chance to trade for Nidoran"s second evolutionary form. If they are in FireRed, then the trade will be a Nidoran for a Nidorina, and in LeafGreen, they will be asked for a Nidorina for a Nidoran. The Nidorina will have a lonely nature while the Nidoran will have a bold, neither will come to players holding any items.

To make this trade, players will want to head to the top of the building connecting Route 11 to the city and head to the upper room.

6 Slowbro/Golduck for Lickitung

This is another trade that has been slightly altered from the original games. Depending on the version gamers are playing, they will have to evolve a different water-type Pokemon. This is the only way to acquire Lickitung in the game, making it a must for the completionist. If they are playing LeafGreen, then they will need to trade a Slowbro for FireRed; gamers will need to trade a Golduck.

For this trade, they will need to visit the upper floor of the connecting gate on Route 18. This can be a great choice for breeding if players like to trade with other players.

The next trade involves the ice-type Pokemon Jynx who can be a great ally when taking on grass and dragon-type Pokemon. This is one of the only ways to get this Pokémon in generation three, making it a necessary trade. For this trade, players will simply need to catch a Poliwhirl with a fishing rod and then head into Cerulean City. Like in the original games, head into the house next to the Pokemon to start the trade.

The Jynx named Zynx, will have a mild nature and come with the item fab mail.

The Farfetch"d will come with a stick, an item that will raise the critical hit chance of Farfetch"d.
