Record of Ruby's and Sapphire's 80-Day Adventure
Located in the back of the collection is a four page timeline of Ruby's and Sapphire's journey throughout the Houen Region. A translation of that timeline follows:
Release Date: December 5th, 2014
Deep in the Stone Cave near Muro Town, Daigo and Kiwame study a mural in a previously unexplored part of the cave. Outside, Sapphire asks Emerald to command Ruby's Kirlia in a training battle against her newly caught Kirlia while they wait for Ruby to get back. During the ensuing battle Ruby's Kirlia evolves into Sirnight while her Kirlia unexpectedly evolves into Ellrade! Back in the cave Daigo notices "alpha" and "omega" symbols written on the ancient paintings of Kyogre and Groudon...what could they mean? He later tells Kiwame that he had her come out to the Houen Region to help him figure out more about Mega Evolution. They soon rejoin the Zukan Holders on the surface where they watch Ruby make a guest appearance on a TV show about Pokemon Contests. After the show Ruby is reunited with Mari and Dai and tells them that something unforgivable is happening...
