Getting the Sapphire in Fire Red (with Pictures)

In Pokémon Fire Red, you'll need to get the Ruby and the Sapphire to connect to Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. It's not that hard to get hold of the Ruby, but tracking down the Sapphire involves going on a wild quest through some of the Sevii Islands. If you have both gems, you will be able to transfer your Hoenn Pokémon to Fire Red.
