No Mistake, It's Pokemon FireRed/Leaf Green!
With then news of the updated release date for FireRed/LeafGreen (which is September 9th, 2004), the game's name appeared as "FireRed/LeafGreen" without a space separating the words "Fire" and "Red," as well as "Leaf" and "Green. Earlier in April 2004, Nintendo made an announcement that included the space in the name, however, the most recent announcement, coming from both Nintendo.com and Pokemon.com included no space.
So I decided to contact both Nintendo.com and Pokemon.com to see if this can be cleared up, here's what I got:
At this time, all of my official notes do not have a space between the color and item. They appear as FireRed and LeafGreen so that seems to be the way they should appear. However, until the release in September, details can still change.

Thanks for asking!
Officially, the games will be FireRed and LeafGreen. It's the style indication we have received from TPC in Japan. Thanks again for asking.
PS: We will be at E3 -- if you're attending, please shoot me an email, I'd love to meet up with you.
For those that don't know. TPC stands for The Pokemon Company. Anyways, it's a good thing I contacted both of them, I figured one of them would probably give a better response (just because of the fact whoever it may be, have more information on it). Nintendo's response was good, it confirmed it was official. Of course, these things aren't 100%, thing can change, and that's why it included the statement that it might change, but most likely not. Thanks to Nintendo.com's R.M. Rickets for that reply! And Pokemon.com's response confirmed that further, that the name is official and it's coming from the top chain of command, TPC.
Nice of him to invite me to meet him at E3, but unfortunately I'm not attending (I would love to though!). The event is not even open to the general public, "E3 is a trade event and only professionals from the industry will be allowed to attend. Individuals who are not able to document their direct, professional affiliation to the interactive entertainment industry are not qualified to attend E3." - E3Expo.com
On top of that, it costs hundreds of dollars to get in and hundreds of miles away from where I'm living (well, compared to most people, I live relatively near Los Angeles). Anyways, much thanks to Lawrence Neves for the helpful reply and that chance to meet him!
