The Final Battle III
The Final Showdown III or Go to Him, Bubble Balloon (Japanese: 最終超決戦III The Final Battle III or 届け フーセンガム Go and Report, Bubblegum) is the 262nd round of the Pokémon Adventures manga.
Marge tries to tell Ruby that his father, Norman, had arrived on top of Rayquaza. The collective roars of Groudon, Kyogre and Rayquaza drowns out Marge's voice, which prevents Ruby from hearing her. Marge tries to pull Ruby close and tell him, but a tentacle shoots out of the Cave of Origin and drags her inside. Ruby and Zuzu go inside the shrine to try and save her. A three-way attack from Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza causes a huge explosion, which breaks apart the Cave of Origin.
Ruby has Zuzu try and move the debris, but Marge tells Ruby to stop, as she can no longer move her legs. Marge forces the Blue Orb out of her body and rolls it near Ruby. Marge tells Ruby to face Kyogre and Groudon alone, as it's the end of the line for her. Ruby refuses and reveals that he wants to compete in a Pokémon Contest with her. When Marge asks how he knew that she did Contests, Ruby remembers that when she burned a Ribbon back at Rusturf, it couldn't possibly be his. Marge flashes back to when she was younger, and did contests with Daisy, which she guesses is why she has some affection for Ruby.
Marge tries to tell Ruby about his father again, but the debris blocks her voice from reaching him. Instead, Marge blows a bubble and covers it with Lansat and Starf Berry juice to increase the buoyancy and strength. She attaches her Memory Lighter to the bubble and sends it to Ruby. The battle between the three Pokémon causes more debris to fall, killing Marge in the process, much to Ruby's horror.
Marge's bubble balloon floats towards Ruby, who catches it. Ruby uses the light on a piece of paper, which comes out as an image of the Balance Badge. Ruby remembers Marge's words, and notices that his father is standing on top of Rayquaza's head. As Marge lays, dying, she tells Ruby to bear witness to what she learned at the Mossdeep Space Center.
