This chapter is actually some sort of paradox or loophole since kaito is hunting for the numbers even though the numbers didn't excist yet until half-way through their duel Xtariqx (talkcontribs)

Yes, the chapter is non-canon to the series. It's just a special chapter made for Shounen Jump, like an experimental chapter, to see if it'd be popular in another magazine, besides V Jump. I think this was done to check if ZEXAL could perhaps be published in there instead of V Jump, as it was at that time holding 3 on-going Yu-Gi-Oh! manga series - which caused the manga of GX to be prematurely finished. :/ LegendaryAsariUgetsu (talkcontribs) 00:49, November 16, 2012 (UTC)
