Items you will need
CodeBreaker GBA cheat device or
Action Replay GBA cheat device
There are seven charted land masses that make up the Sevii Islands in “Pokemon FireRed” on the Game Boy Advance. Beyond these seven islands are two additional land masses, known as Birth Island and Navel Rock. These hidden islands can only be reached without cheating by Pokemon players who attended special events between 2003 and 2005 and received an Aurora and Mystery Ticket, in-game items that allowed access to the islands. "FireRed" players can still access these islands using a CodeBreaker or Action Replay cheat device.
Insert the CodeBreaker cheat device into the game slot on your Game Boy Advance. Plug your copy of "Pokemon FireRed" into the CodeBreaker device and power on the GBA. CodeBreaker will detect your game.
Enter the following code into the “Edit Code” menu: 000014DS 000A 10044EC8 0007. This is the master code for "Pokemon FireRed."
Input 82031dbc 2402 to register the “Warp to Navel Rock” code. Input 82031dbc 3802 to register the “Warp to Birth Island” code.
Check the box next to the master code and either the Birth Island or Navel Rock code. Begin the game and load your saved game. You will start on the island whose code you entered.
Save and reset the game after you've explored one of the islands. Deactivate the warp code and activate the other warp code. Load your game to enter the other island.
Head to the southern edge of either island to board a ferry back to the mainland and continue on in your game.
Insert an Action Replay GBA cheat device into your Game Boy. Insert “Pokemon FireRed” into the slot and power on the console.
Select “New Game Code” from main Action Replay menu. Enter the following codes: 72BC6DFB E9CA5465 A47FB2DC 1AF3CA86 and 8D671FD9 6F6BEFF2 78DA95DF 44018CB4. Activate both codes.
Enter the Mystic Ticket code, which will give you the ticket needed to travel to Birth Island. Input: 0E12F25C BC489609 141BB87C 83D7018F 7A063220 5D82DF58 2782EFCA 4EED1397. Activate the code. Start a saved game and go to any PokeMart. Speak with the clerk and purchase the Mystic Ticket. Save and power off your game.
Return back to the Action Replay menu. Deactivate the Mystic Ticket code and enter the Aurora Ticket code: 0E12F25C BC489609 141BB87C 83D7018F 7A063220 5D82DF58 641B9F5D 3A0D0482. Activate the code. Start the saved game and go to any Pokemart. Purchase the Aurora Ticket. Save and power off the game.
Return to the Action Replay menu. Deactivate the Aurora Ticket code. Enter and activate the following code: 07CF2578 E43B4EBF. Return to the game. Head to Vermillion City where a ferry will take you to Birth Island or Navel Rock as long as the code remains active.
Use the Action Replay codes after you have first visited any of the other seven Sevii Islands.
You cannot obtain the Mystery or Aurora Ticket without cheating. It cannot be traded to your "FireRed." The only way to reach the islands is with a cheat device.
