The FireRed & LeafGreen arc (Japanese: ファイアレッド・リーフグリーン編 FireRed & LeafGreen arc), also referred to as The Fifth Chapter (Japanese: 第五章 The Fifth Chapter), is the fifth story arc of the Pokémon Adventures manga, consisting of five volumes. It began serialization in February 2004, and ended in March 2007.

Much like its game counterpart, this arc returns to the characters of Red, Green, and Blue, protagonists of the original Red, Green & Blue arc of Pokémon Adventures. Red and Blue are forced to explore the Sevii Islands to look for Professor Oak after he's kidnapped by Team Rocket. Meanwhile, Green has finally located her parents; however, just as she is about to meet them, they are swallowed up by a mysterious black hole. Red, Green, and Blue set out to rescue the missing relatives with the help of a former foe, Lorelei, as well as Mewtwo. At the same time, Team Rocket, headed by Giovanni and enforced by Sird, Carr, and Orm of the Three Beasts, is attempting to capture the DNA Pokémon Deoxys, and Silver arrives in Kanto to search for his family.
