Battle Tactic #6: Deploying Your Battle Gear – June 2010

From and reposted on


Now that you’ve selected your Battle Gear, it’s time to use them in battle. Using your Battle Gear is an important strategy to winning the game. During your brawls, you will want to maximize the full potential of your Battle Gear by considering your arsenal and your timing.


First things first, you should try to only deploy your Battle Gear on Bakugan that have matching attributes. It’s obviously not the best to add Battle Gear that have Special Abilities for Pyrus and Darkus to a Haos Bakugan.

Keep in mind that if you deploy Battle Gear on a Gate card whose color matches the Battle Gear’s icon — Copper, Silver, or Gold — you get to choose which Special Ability to use.  Being able to use a specific Battle Gear Special Ability can spell the difference between crushing your opponent and losing the Gate Card!

Always keep in mind that your Bakugan gets the Battle Gear’s G-Power bonus whether or not its attribute matches the Battle Gear’s Special Abilities on the Reference Card. It might be a good play to deploy your Battle Gear for its G-Power alone.

Alternately, you can deploy a Trap and a Battle Gear in the same battle. This can let you use a Battle Gear’s Special Ability even if your Bakugan doesn’t match either of its Special Ability attributes! Using a Trap and a Battle Gear in the same battle uses up a lot of your resources all at once though, so be careful. Of course, if you can win your third Gate Card by deploying a Trap and Battle Gear at once, go for it! Remember, if you win the third and final battle you win the game.

While you’re battling, also note that you get to bring Battle Gear back from your Used pile to your Unused pile at the same time as your Bakugan. This can really affect when you choose to play your Battle Gear.

I hope you’ll use this month’s tips during your next brawl in order to maximize your arsenal on the battle field.

Bakugan: Gundalian Invaders!

OMG!  I don’t know WHERE to start.  I have to start carrying a camera around with me.  I didn’t today, so you will have to wait until tonight for pix.

Here is the deal:  Are you ready?

You can now add weaponry called Battle Gear to your new Brawlers!

The weapons can add G-Power to your Brawler AND there are cards specifically for them. They are BLUE!

These new Brawlers also have something called hidden DNA.  When you rub it, a code gets revealed that will allow you to go online and unleash your Brawler!


Season 3: Gundalian Invaders Bakugan Codes – DO NOT SHARE

Attention brawlers!

We would like to notify all brawlers to not share your Bakugan Season 3 Gundalian Invaders ‘heat reveal’ 10-digit codes with anyone else as they are specific to each Bakugan and will be required for future online use. Do not post the code or pictures of your Bakugan online. Once the code has been entered online in the upcoming redemption system you cannot use it again, so please keep your code a secret for your eyes only!

Stay tuned to as the homepage will feature more information as we draw closer to the release of the online system and the use of the 10-digit ‘heat reveal’ codes that are found on Season 3 Gundalian Invaders Bakugan.

Thank you!

~ The Bakugan Team

Later this evening, I will have pix, and will be able to write at greater length!

I saw the Pyrus, the Aquos and the Darkus Invaders!  You will too!

Evolution Packs

Seen at Wal-Mart:

“Evolution Packs”.  They contain B-series Gate and Ability Cards, but……check out these two translucent Brawlers:

Ventus IngramDarkus Hydranoid

My marketing/sales manager says that the Ventus Brawler is an Ingram, and the Darkus Brawler is a Hydranoid.

The new Bakuswap Bakugan are here!

We have a two-tone Clayf (Pyrus and Subterra), which the player calls the color before rolling.


The Booster Packs we saw have a new Bakuswap Brawler, and a Series 2D Gate Card and Ability Card.


Pictures tomorrow!
