    Hi, you see I wanna play Pokemon Fire Red and Pokemon Green, but the jap-version on my european GBA SP.
    But I don not know if it will work to play them on it, and even if it works will I be able to trade with my european games?
    Also I would like to know where I can buy them.
    Thx cubone12

    Also, if you have a Japanese GBA version and you want to import to Pal Park in DPPtHGSS, you will have to get a Japanese version of the DS game first.

    There is no reason for not being able to trade between the Japanese version and the European version.

    Trading between Japanese and International versions of 3rd generation games should work without issue. From Bulbapedia: "Link trades and battles are made possible between Japanese and international releases due to the use of a worldwide character set. Due to the fact that online trading was introduced only in Generation IV, however, most are not made aware of this."

    I was referring to importing from the GBA games to the DS games via Pal Park. :l
