Pokemon Leaf Green Version (GBA)
Pokemon LeafGreen Version (AKA ポケットモンスターリーフグリーン Pocket Monsters LeafGreen in Japan) is a 2D role-playing game (RPG) developed by Game Freak and released for the GBA in 2004 along with FireRed Version. The game is a remake of the original Blue Version (Green in Japan) for the original Game Boy handheld gaming console. Everyone love this game!
For Pokemon fans, nothing screams déjà vu more than playing as the original trainer from Pallet Town in Pokemon LeafGreen Version a canonical remake of the original Green Version. The background behind the story remains identical but the new mechanics and updated content transforms it into a timeless addition to the incredibly lengthy adventure RPG series. Despite its age, LeafGreen Version, like other Pokémon video games, remains as a few of the most accessible handheld games that many audiences of all ages can enjoy.
Most of the script, locations, and trainers you’ll encounter throughout Pokemon LeafGreen Version barely changed from how they were in the original title. While the game is chock full of repetitive elements, the added mechanics such as the addition of double battles and redesigned interface helps keep the experience fresh and exciting even for those players who’ve invested several hours into the original. For newcomers to Pokemon, this game is perfect for learning all the ropes of the series moving forward thanks to its extensive tutorial system.
Being more than a decade old, the world map can seem outdated at times. The new apps that weren’t implemented in the previous games make up for it by making the mechanics more convenient for casuals, with enough depth to satisfy veteran gamers. For instance, beating trainers in the original turns them into static props as you can never challenge them again. With VS Seeker added in Leaf and other convenient fixes, this remake holds more edge in terms of replay value.
With the added compatibility with other games on the GBA, the game boasts a roster of over 350 monsters including those exclusive to the FireRed, Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald versions. Choosing the best six-Pokémon lineup may be harder, but is more fulfilling in a strategic sense. However, Pokemon LeafGreen Version may sometimes feel too strict in remaining faithful to its predecessors. Certain restrictions on the additional monsters and their evolutions are only unlocked only after finishing the main story, which usually takes around 25 hours. Some older players looking forward to the post game content may find the game’s restrictions more annoying than nostalgic.
As LeafGreen Version merely moves in the same direction that the last GBA few titles took, there’s not much of a difference in the presentation and gameplay. Overall, the graphics and audio are decent at best, but they do their job to maintain the light hearted atmosphere and charm of the originals. The game manages to retain the fundamentals of the series, cementing its status a solid adventure to play even through the years.
Pokemon LeafGreen Version game has only been ported to Game Boy Advance. But… good news! You can play it online on our website!
