Overview:  In these Game Boy Advance remakes of Pocket Monsters Red and Pocket Monsters Green, players travel back to the land of Kanto to fight against the original eight gym leaders.  The graphics have received a major overhaul, and the games allow players to finally complete their Pokemon Zukan when trading with Ruby and Sapphire.  Both games came packaged with a Wireless Adapter, which allows players to trade and battle without the use of link cables.

Changes:  The Japanese version supported the E-Reader peripheral, but the American version does not.

A few dialogue changes between the original games and the remakes have been made.  A reference to the Columbia space shuttle in the Pewter City museum has been changed to "Space Shuttle" in lieu of the 2003 Columbia disaster.  In addition, trainers known as "Gamblers" in the original Red and Blue are known as "Gamers" in the remakes.
