Pokémon FireRed Version Cheats & Cheat Codes for Game Boy Advance

Pokémon FireRed was a remake of the original Pokémon Red and Blue, released on Sept. 9, 2004. It was paired with Pokémon LeafGreen and was developed by Game Freak for the Game Boy Advance. FireRed was a nostalgic revisit to the original Pokémon games with updated graphics, new features, and additional Pokémon to catch and train. Pokémon is known for some legendary exploits, but no cheat codes were established at launch. Using any cheat codes has to be with an emulator of the game, or with third-party hardware.

The Pokémon Company had a rather apt description:

“Get set to return to where it all started — Pokémon FireRed Version and Pokémon LeafGreen Version head back to the Kanto region, the home of Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue. Thanks to the capabilities of the Game Boy Advance system, the locales, Pokémon, and animations are greatly improved since the last installment.”

Pokémon FireRed Main Characters

Unlike current game installments, you play as yourself, getting a chance to name yourself and your rival. But for the show, these characters’ names are set:

  1. Player Character (Red/Green/Leaf): The protagonist of the game, the player character embarks on a quest to become a Pokémon Champion.
  2. Blue/Gary Oak: Blue is the player character’s rival and childhood friend. He serves as a recurring opponent throughout the game.

Pokémon FireRed Cheat Codes FAQ

How do you use Pokémon FireRed cheat codes?

You have two options: a Gameshark or Action Replay for a GBA, or your Emulator should have access to a cheat menu.

Does the Mew glitch work in FireRed?

Mew had a one-time event back in 2006, which allowed players to catch Mew, but now you can only trade for it. Some believe there is a specific glitch that can help players earn Mew, but it doesn’t work in FireRed.

What is the master code in Gameshark?

This code must be entered first before any other cheat codes will work:

 “D8BAE4D9 4864DCE5 A86CDBA5 19BA49B3”

Is it illegal to use cheats?

This is a grey area. Some games have cheat codes built into them so players can use them without repercussion. Others use illegal cheats. These are somewhere in the middle since it’s using an emulator or third-party application to allow you to cheat. I’m sure The Pokemon Company isn’t a fan, but they can’t do anything about it.
