As usual, in FireRed / LeafGreen you battle your way through 8 gyms, each specializing in a particular type. Following that you take on the Elite Four and the Champion.
The teams are mostly the same as the original Red / Blue with a few level changes. The levels of the Elite Four's Pokémon also increase from the second challenge onward.

After you have saved the Silph Company president, you can finally enter the official Saffron City Gym and battle Sabrina. In order to get to Sabrina, you need to step on the teleportation squares on the ground.
Use this sequence to get to Sabrina:
- Step on the first square to warp to the southeast room.
- Step on the upper right square to warp to the room above.
- Now use the upper left square to go to the northeastern room.
- The lower left square brings you to the northwest corner.
- Pick the lower left square again and you'll face Sabrina.
These are the trainers you'll encounter (in order):
You can also battle these other trainers, if you want:
Once you beat Sabrina, you will receive the Marsh badge that lets you train Pokémon up to level 70, as well as TM04 (Calm Mind). Once you're done here, move on to Route 12 to catch yourself a Snorlax and some Water Pokémon. Your ultimate destination is Fuchsia City, so you can also take a different way - like Routes 16-18, for example.
Silph Co. Head office
The Silph Co. Head Office is the largest and tallest building in the city. Silph Co. are the leading manufacturer of Pokémon technology in the world, and produce a variety of goods for Trainers, such as the Poké Ball and the Silph Scope.
Their status makes them a target of Team Rocket, who orchestrated the takeover of their headquarters in Saffron City in order to obtain the Master Ball. However, the player successfully drives them out and the President of Silph gives the player the Master Ball for saving the company.
The Silph Co. Head Office is an eleven-floor skyscraper, and effectively a giant maze. The building contains a number of warp tiles, which must be used in order to reach different rooms. Some of Silph's doors require a Card Key to open.
In Generations II and IV, Silph Co. has increased security, and the player is not allowed to enter the upper floors. In Pokémon Heart Gold and SoulSilver, one of the Hoenn region's starter Pokémon may be obtained here from Hoenn Champion Steven. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Rotom's Room is located in this building, which contains appliances that allow Rotom to change forms.
In addition to Sabrina's Psychic-type Gym, there is also an unofficial Gym, the Fighting Dojo, which specializes in Fighting-type Pokémon. The player can obtain their choice of Hitmonchan or Hitmonlee by defeating the Karate Master Koichi.
The Fighting Dojo and the Saffron Gym once competed against each other to determine which one would be Saffron City's Gym. Due to the type advantage that the Saffron Gym's Psychic-type Pokémon had over the Dojo's Fighting-type Pokémon, Saffron Gym easily won and became the official Gym.
In Generation II, the Dojo is closed because the Karate Master has left to train in Johto's Mt. Mortar. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the player can schedule rematches with Kanto and Johto Gym Leaders to be held here using their Pokégear.
Magnet train station
In the Generation II games and Pokémon Heart Gold and SoulSilver, the Magnet Train runs from Saffron City to Goldenrod City in Johto, connecting the two regions. It is one of the few methods players can use to travel from region to region, and it will allow rapid travel between the two cities, going at over 340 miles per hour (550 kilometers per hour).
To board the train, the player must have a Pass. The Copycat in Saffron City has one and is willing to give it up as a reward for returning her the Poké Doll that Red gave to her three years before. Initially, the train is out of service as a minion of Team Rocket has stolen a valuable part from the Kanto Power Plant. After defeating him on Route 24, the player can retrieve the part from the Cerulean Gym and return it to the Power Plant. With the component back in place, the train will have the necessary power to run.
In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, Vermilion City's Gym Leader Lt. Surge will come here and offer to trade his Pikachu for the player's Pikachu. This Pikachu is notable because it originates from a different language than that of the player's game: in the English releases, it is French and in all other releases, it is English.
Mr. Psychic's house
Mr. Psychic lives in a small house that is located on the southeastern side of the city, being better accessible by entering Saffron City from the southern entrance. He sits at a table in the middle of the room. When talked to for the first time in every game he is featured in, he will claim to know that the player really wants to receive a gift from him, giving the TM for Psychic to the player.

HeartGold and SoulSilver
In the Generation I games, Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, and Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee !, Copycat lives in a house that is located in the northwest of the city. In the Generation I games, if the player gives her a Poké Doll she will give them TM31 (Mimic), in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen she will offer to teach one of the player's Pokémon Mimic if the player gives her a Poké Doll, and in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee !, she gives the player TM08 (Substitute) if they show her a Clefairy. There is a video game system in her bedroom: in the Generation I games and Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen it is an SNES with a game that has Mario with a bucket on his head, in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee !, it is a Nintendo Switch with a game featuring cube-shaped Pokémon.
Between the events of Generations I and II, Copycat's house in Saffron City was torn down to make room for the Magnet Train station. Copycat and her family move to a house slightly south of the station.
In the Generation II games and Pokémon Heart Gold and SoulSilver, Copycat's Clefairy doll goes missing, being found by a member of the Pokémon Fan Club in Vermilion City. When the player returns her lost doll, Copycat will reward them with a ticket to ride the Magnet Train that travels between Kanto and Johto.
