    The major differences between the games are:

    -FireRed contains 9 extra islands known as the Sevii Islands which can first be accessed after obtaining the 8th gym. Two of those islands can only be accessed through Nintendo Events.

    -The Pokemon in FireRed have genders and IV's and can gain EV's (if you don't know what these are and you aren't into competitive battling don't worry about them)

    -Pokemon can be bred once you gain access to one of the Sevii Islands.

    -There are certain people spread around the game known as Move Tutors who teach certain moves to certain Pokemon, there is also a Move Rememberer who can teach any move that a Pokemon could have learned at an earlie level and a Move Deleter who can delete HM moves from a Pokemon.

    -Some Johto Pokemon may be caught, bred or evolved into after beating the Elite Four and obtaining the National Dex.

    -The Elite Four becomes stronger after obtaining the National Dex.

    -Moltres can be caught before Victory Road.

    -Much more Bag Space than Red

    -Different TM set

    -Not as glitchy than Red.

    -Comes with a Wireless Adapter that allows Communication with Pokemon LeafGree, Emerald and other FireRed Cartridges.

    That's all I can think of off the top of my head, I'll edit it if I remember any more.

    * Players can now play as a female character, as well as choosing to play as the male character that was default in Generation I. * Music has been tuned up to take advantage of the Game Boy Advance's power; however, the themes themselves remain the same. * As in all Generation III games, Pokémon now have natures, abilities, genders, and can hold items. * Pokémon retain their Generation II and III evolutionary lines (e.g. Golbat can evolve into Crobat), but cannot evolve into these stages until the player has obtained the National Pokédex. * Magnemite and Magneton are Electric/Steel, as they were in Generation II as well as Ruby and Sapphire. * A new southern region, the Sevii Islands, is accessible, where Generation II Pokémon can be caught. * Pokémon can breed in the Pokémon daycare in Four Island as well as still having access to the Pokémon daycare on Route 5. * Trainers outdoors can be rebattled using the Vs Seeker. * Information on major characters, e.g. Gym Leaders, are stored in the Fame Checker. * Pokémon movelists are updated to include moves introduced in Generation II and Generation III. * The TM list is shared with other Generation III games. * Move tutors become available to teach moves formerly contained in Generation I TMs. * The Elite Four can be re-battled and get Generation II Pokémon on their teams in addition to Generation I Pokémon after the Sevii Islands quest has been completed. * Version-exclusive Pokémon and wild Pokémon distribution have been altered from the original games to account for new evolutions released in Generation II. * Blast Burn, Frenzy Plant, and Hydro Cannon are available as move tutor moves to the Kanto starters' final forms. * Deoxys debuts two new forms: Attack Forme (FireRed) and Defense Forme (LeafGreen). * Team Rocket has an expanded role in the game's post-Elite storyline, with a new base in the Sevii Islands. * Battles with wild legendary Pokémon Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, and Mewtwo feature a remixed battle theme. * In non-Japanese versions, the dialogues are colored, depending if it is from a male or female, being the colors blue and red, respectively. In dialogues from other sources, such as signs, the text remains black. * A help feature was added, and can be viewed by pressing the L or R buttons of the console.
