Pokemon Fire Red and Leaf Green came out decades ago, there is still a sizeable amount of fans who obsess over the game’s brilliance. And rightfully so, the game is the definitive Pokemon experience; it has all the original Pokemon that we grew up loving and not to mention the nostalgia!
But times have changed; the games are old, and this isn’t a bad thing per se, but we’ve grown accustomed to newer and fast-paced gameplay. The 2000s were a different era. People had a good attention span and had patience. In this modern age, we want everything as fast as possible.
Pokemon games from the past are prone to these problems, of being slow-paced and taking time to get to the reward. Fortunately, there are some tricks that you can use. If you’re on one of the best Pokemon emulators, you can just speed up!
But speed isn’t the only issue here. There are some great Pokemon in the game that evolve only after trading. Now, who is going to trade with you? There are also pokemon, which were only available at certain events. Now, unless you have a time machine, this will be a problem.
But don’t worry, GameShark cheats take care of this problem for you. So we decided to rank the 10 best Pokemon Fire Red cheats that you should utilize in your next play-through.
(Note – The cheats may or may not work for Pokemon Leaf Green even though they’re the same game. There are different cheat codes for Pokemon Leaf Green!)
What is Gameshark?
Before we deep dive into the list, if you’re new to cheats in Pokemon, you won’t be familiar with what GameShark means. GameShark, simply put, is a tool used in gaming consoles to do some things that the game won’t allow you. For example, obtaining an item, rewatching cut scenes, etc.
Devices like the GameShark were top-rated back in the day, especially for the GameBoy and the PS1. These devices allowed you to do a lot of exciting stuff with your console. But nowadays, as almost every Pokemon Fan is playing on an emulator, you can just use the cheat code we provide without the device itself.
Also, remember to not activate a lot of cheats simultaneously; it may break your game if the cheats aren’t compatible. Make sure to make multiple save files just in case. The codes given below are tried and tested, but taking precautions is good.
