POKeMON - which games are the same?

Just generally curious, they seem to have this odd habit of releasing 2 or 3 copies of the same game with slightly altered pokemon. Just curious which of these games are generally the same and meant to be the same other than the ones I know:

Pokemon Red, Blue & Yellow = Same
Pokemon Gold & Silver = Same
Pokemon Pearl & Diamond = Same
Pokemon SS & HG = Same

I'm mainly confused about the GBA area, was Fire red on GBA a remake of red on GB? Are Emerald and Ruby the same game? (I'd like to know this one since I can get Ruby still but I have emerald).

Can someone clarify ALL of this for me?

Red/Blue/Yellow = Gen 1
Fire Red/Leaf Green = Gen 1 remake
Gold/Silver/Crystal = Gen 2
Heart Gold/Soul Silver = Gen 2 remake
Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald = Gen 3
Diamond/Pearl/Platinum = Gen 4

Be award that the 3rd version of each gen (yellow/crystal/emerald/platinum) is usually the "best" since nintendo/gamefreak adds extra things in

Not really, but personally I like ruby better. No real reason, I just do.

I think the champion is different in ruby/sapphire though.

you see, Pokemon is actually a good game though. and Pokemon isnt annual. every generation has versions, all more or less the same game. i dont think anyone actually does or is intended to play all the versions

and when a new generation comes around, significant changes are always made. well, from gen 1 to 2 and from 2 to 3 at least. gen 4 was pretty bad

either way, the comparison to Madden isnt a very good one

Gen 4 was the same thing and it was fun too. Especially the underground mode.
