    I was wondering if anyone here might know if the save files for Pokemon FireRed (and LeafGreen, by extension, I suppose; though I only have FireRed) are interchangeable between versions 1.0 and 1.1 of the game. I currently have a 1.0 game pak, and am planning to pick up a 1.1. I was just hoping someone here may already know if a save dumped off my 1.0 game pak could be transferred to the 1.1 with the save functioning normally? I'm not sure how much was altered/corrected in the 1.1 edition of the game... the only one I know of for sure is the "glitch" in the display of the species name in the Pokedex.

    Can you explain that glitch? Is there a site that shows it?
    Saves will work.

    Thanks. As for the bug, it's described in the Trivia section of the Bulbapedia page on FireRed & LeafGreen. Essentially, it's a glitch in the way the some of the species names (usually longer ones) are read from memory. For example, in v1.0, Pidgey will display as "Tiny Pokemon" instead of "Tiny Bird Pokemon".
