Battle Gear 101
Maximize Your Arsenal

Q: Can I use Battle Gear with Bakugan from any series and type?
A: Yes! Although there are specific Bakugan that are designed to be fit perfectly with the weapon, Battle Gear can be used with any Bakugan from series 1, series 2 (New Vestroia), and series 3 (Gundalian Invaders). If you want to use the Battle Gear with a Bakugan that does not specifically equip it simply open the Battle Gear on the Gate Card in battle and process it as you normally would, as stated below.

Q: How do I use Battle Gear in battle?
A: Bakugan Battle Gear are played during a battle (from your unused pile). Place your Battle Gear on the back of your Bakugan to open it. It may also be opened on a Gate Card. Add the G-Power revealed on the inside of the Battle Gear to your battling Bakugan. If your Bakugan’s attribute matches either of the attributes on  your Battle Gear reference card, then you get that ability as well; Or, if your Battle Gear matches the color of the Gate Card being battled on (Gold, Silver, or Copper. Also see Battle Gear Attributes) you choose any one ability on the Battle Gear reference card to use in this battle.

Battle Gear move like regular Bakugan. At the end of a battle, they move to your used pile. When you have no Bakugan to roll, all of your Bakugan, Bakugan Trap, and Battle Gear move to your unused pile.

Each player may use a total of 2 Bakugan Trap or Battle Gear (or a mixture equaling 2). So, a brawler may have 2 Bakugan Trap. Or, a brawler may have 2 Battle Gear. And, a brawler may have 1 Bakugan Trap and 1 Battle Gear.

Q: What are the Battle Gear Attributes?
A: Battle Gear come in one of three Attributes: Gold, Silver, or Copper. Not only are the Battle Gear’s highlights colored appropriately to their Attribute, but they also have an icon painted on them to tell the brawler what kind of attribute they are:


Gold Attribute
Looks like a target, or crosshair.


Silver Attribute
Looks like a missle, or triangle.


Copper Attribute
Looks like a cat’s eye.


If your Battle Gear has the same attribute as the Gate Card you are battling on then you may choose to either: 1) If your Bakugan’s attribute matches either of the attributes on your reference card, you get the ability as well, or 2) If you Battle Gear matches the attribute of the Gate Card you are battling on you can choose any one ability on the Battle Gear reference card to use in this battle.

Knowledge and education is the most valuable weapon on the battlefield! Now that you are properly equipped with the basics of how to use Battle Gear you can now effectively begin making your own strategies that fuse Bakugan with their new weapons. Keep in mind that these are the barebones of Battle Gear use. For more specific situations and rules information be sure to read the Battle Gear FAQ section in the Bakugan Gameplay FAQ.

Brawl on!

Gameplay FAQ, ver. 03.26.10

Update ver. 03.26.10

Battle Gear Turn Progression Addressed:

* Can I use all my available Battle Gear and/or Trap on a single Gate Card (or in a single battle)?

Yes! You can do the following: 1) Use two Battle Gear on your standing Bakugan, 2) Use two Trap on a standing Bakugan, or 3) Use one Battle Gear and one Trap on a standing Bakugan. When using more than one Battle Gear or Trap be sure to process them one at a time, and in the proper turns with your opponent – Brawler #1 plays a Battle Gear or Trap and fully resolves its effect. Next, Brawler #2 plays a Battle Gear or Trap and fully resolves its effect. Then, back to Brawler #1 to play another Battle Gear or Trap, and so forth.”

Bakugan Dimensions: Release Date Addressed

From Bakugan.com:

Attention Bakugan Battle Brawlers!

Recent developments with Bakugan Dimensions and Spin Master has determined a release date of April 5 th, 2010, as mentioned in a currently aired television commercial promoting the ’30 Days of Unstoppable Winnings’ contest.

The April 5th date is still the projected launch goal for the highly anticipated online game which will feature online battles, custom brawler avatars, virtual collections, chatting with friends, and more!

Prior to this commercial being finalized and aired, Bakugan and Spin Master were aiming to bring Bakugan Dimension to your monitors and fingertips a bit early with hopes of releasing in March. This news was brought to you through many of our communication channels including the official forums, forum private messaging, and our social networks.

Unfortunately, the March early release will not be met as we are using every bit of valuable time to continue developing and completing every feature that we want brawlers to take part in as they play the game.

As any gamer knows, an online game is both extremely fun and quite expansive in the features that it offers players. Creating an online world that is both highly addicting, incredible in its representation of Bakugan, and completely captivating takes many hours of effort and dedicated resources.  We are working hard and strive to bring you the ultimate online experience!

Lord Darkus, Bright Light, and the rest of the Bakugan team would like to humbly apologize on behalf of our development partners and Spin Master for communicating the early release of the game as “within the month of March”. We are still holding true to the April 5th launch date and we hope you understand the decision to use every valuable second to make Bakugan Dimensions the most unforgettable online experience ever!

Continuing forward, we will do our best to provide you, the battle brawling community and the most important link in the whole development process, with up-to-date and critical information regarding progress in development and any unforeseen shifts.

Sincerely,

Lord Darkus, Bright Light, and the rest of the Bakugan Team
