The plot tickens...
This extra scan shows Lan holding none other than the original PET! This definitely places this game's events before Battle Network 3, so this definitely isn't "Mega Man Battle Network 7" or anything like that. It'd explain the older sprite style, too.
I'm glad to see the original PET's return. It actually looks like a working handheld computer, unlike many of the later versions which were created just for the sake of changing stuff every year.
