What is the difference between blue rescue team and red rescue team? - pokémon mystery dungeon: blue rescue team forum - neoseeker forums

What is the difference between red rescue team and blue rescue team, other than the fact that they are on different consoles? Do you use different pokemon on each of them? If you do, please tell me which one lets you be a fire pokemon, because I have a DS and I want the the DS version, but I also really like fire pokemon, and I'm not sure if the name affects the pokemon you use in the game (i.e. water in blue, fire in red?).
