With the Infinity Core discovered, Masquerade is even more determined to get his hands on it.  And if things couldn't get any worst, Dan and Drago is sent to the Doom Dimension!  It up to the rest of the gang to rescue them.  But when the Bakugan Battle Brawlers go to the Doom Dimension find their lost friend, it gives Masquerade the perfect chance to grab the Infinity Core, the key to saving both their worlds.  The Bakugan Battle Brawlers must evolve to the next level if they are to have a chance to save their worlds and finally find out who Masquerade really is!
One day when cards came falling out of the sky Dan and his friends invented a cool new game, Bakugan.  Little did they know they had incredible powers and they now must save both human and Bakugan world, with the Infinity Core found, the source of life for Vestoria.  The Bakugan Battle Brawlers take the next step in stopping Masquerade and saving their worlds, they must evolve their Bakugan to the next level and form the Ultimate Bakugan.
Based on a strategic game, Bakugan involves a game using spherical figures with various characters/creatures/stats that are powered and supported by different gate, field and ability cards.  Gate cards set conditions which boost or take away condition to characters on the field, Field cards set the terrain on which the character is played giving advantages base on character element attributes, Ability cards are personal cards giving special talents/abilities to each character.  In this chapter of Bakugan, the players evolve to the next level and gain new powerful characters with new abilities, and finally they unmask Masquerade and learn the truth of the Bakugan world!
