This solution is only on how to unlock the Evilking Rumor. There are a lot of gotcha's in getting the Rumor to unlock. None of the guides for this currently on the internet are complete. I wasted about 6 hours because of this. So I hope this will help others to not waste time.

If you need a guide for how to beat this guy or any of these other bosses, use google or maybe someone will write one here.

Let me give all the credit to the following: This guide is entirely a combination of a walk through at Playstationtrophies.org, a post by Crext2 and a post by k1lo19 at gamefaqs

Ok! On to the guide then. Unlocking the EvilKing rumor is a 4 step process:

1. Complete all Julio and Nazarus events
2. Complete a set of rumors that unlock in order
3. Complete a set of rumors that unlock together
4. Visit Soul Space's Edge of Pitch Darkness zone

You do not need to complete the story to trigger the Evilking rumor. Step 4 can also actually be done at any point once you gain access to the Sealed Temple.

STEP 1: COMPLETE ALL JULIO and NAZARUS EVENTS

- Julio's Last Event occurs in the PLAZA on ANY DAY: Julio gets a letter from Nazarus. You'll get a reward from this Event: Forgotten Ore (Note: I'm not convinced finishing all of Julio's events is an absolute prerequisite. The only thing for certain is you need to complete enough of Julio's events to meet Nazarus)
- Nazarus's has a pre-Event that occurs at THE ATELIER on ANY DAYt. Nazarus will visit the Atelier and request medicine. Delivering the medicine to Nazarus IS his Last Event.

STEP 2: COMPLETE A SET OF RUMORS THAT UNLOCK IN ORDER

Quick note on Rumors in general: They reset at the CAFE every 2 game days.

First, you need to visit each of the following locations. This is the part that screwed me up. A Rumor will only show up at the CAFE if you have already visited the location it occurs in.
- Visit Sealed Temple's Beyond Desired Dreams zone.
- Visit Moon Sun Mor

Next, the following 3 rumors will show up in order. Complete each rumor. Complete the 1st to unlock the 2nd, complete the 2nd to unlock the 3rd.
1st Rumor: Sealed Disaster (Location: Beyond Desired Dreams)
2nd Rumor: Suddenly Appearing Strange Rocks (Location: Moon Sun Mor)
3rd Rumor: Heaven’s Twin Dragons (Location: Moon Sun Mor)

STEP 3: COMPLETE A SET OF RUMORS THAT UNLOCK TOGETHER

First, you need to visit each of the following locations. Recall, a Rumor will only appear at the CAFE if the location it occurs in has been previously visited:
- Visit Open Ruins
- Visit Moon Sun Moor's Sun Waiting Ring zone
- Visit Verdant Hill's Icy Cave zone

Visiting those areas will unlock the following rumors. Complete all of them.
- Rumor: Ruler of Wind (Location: Open Ruins)
- Rumor: Ruler of Light (Location: Sun Waiting Ring)
- Rumor: Ruler of Ice (Location: Icy Cave)

STEP 4: VISIT SOUL SPACE'S EDGE OF PITCH DARKNESS

Step 4 can actually be done at any point once you gain access to the Sealed Temple.

Edge of Pitch Darkness is the final zone in Soul Space. Soul Space is a portal that opens in Sealed Temple's Beyond Desired Dreams zone. The Soul Space portal is only open on day 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30. As a reference, you turned in the medicine to Nazarus in the room containing this portal.

FINALLY

Once all the above is completed. The Evilking Rumor called FLASH OF DARKNESS will randomly appear.

Tip for this Rumor: Since Soul Space is only periodically open and Rumors do expire, you'll want to pick up the Rumor close to a day that the portal is open. I had the Rumor expire on me a couple times while waiting for Soul Space to open. So what I did was slept till 9AM on day 4, 9, 14, 19, 24 and 29. Checking the Rumors after each sleep. 9AM gives you just enough time to head to the Cafe to grab the rumor, go back to the Atelier and make a save, and finally get to the Sealed Temple at exactly 0:00 o'clock. Plenty of time to make it to the Soul Space portal before it closes even if you accidentally get into a couple fights on the way.

That's it! Let me know if I missed anything in the comments and I'll change it.
