Translation edits

The cover art for this volume was changed from the original in the VIZ Media release. As their release of this volume did not include the first chapter from this volume due to it being published in Volume 14, the new front cover design was meant to omit the previous main characters to disassociate the Ruby & Sapphire chapter from the previous chapters. The new back cover has the picture of Pryce replaced with the picture of Ruby and the Hoenn starters from the original front cover design.
