As he hacks GUN's computers for more information--displaying pictures of several GUN robots from Sonic Adventure 2--he finds a database entry for Gerald Robotnik. Eggman concludes that he was born on Earth, rather than in Sonic's world, and that the two are parallel dimensions. As Eggman continues his search, he uncovers Gerald's diary.

Rouge and Topaz secure a Chaos Emerald to use as bait to gain Eggman's trust--as well as the Master Emerald itself, which Rouge is unwilling to leave behind.

He reaches the capsule containing Shadow and releases him, astonished to see the silhouette of a hedgehog in the cryogenic vapors...
