Welcome to Bakugan, Bakugan Brawl! - Introduction
Bakugan Battle Brawlers (The Video Game) is based on an anime TV show that airs on Cartoon Network. You create your own character, and you start off as a newbie. You become best friends with Dan, the main character in the TV series and you two later team up along with other friends like Ryno, Shun and Julie to stop the Dark Dimension from taking over. Your Bakugan (Leonidas) is from the Dark Dimension and in his mind, he wants to take over the world. Can you turn your Bakugan from evil to good?

Gameplay
At first, Bakugan looks like a complicated set up. But trust me it isn't. Well, it might be for your 1st battle...but you'll get the hang of it in about 5 battles. Your deck contains a maximum of 3 Bakugan, 3 Ability Cards and 3 Gate Cards.

What are Gate Cards?
The Bakugan Gate Cards are cards that the Bakugan "stand" on and battle for.
Each of the Bakugan Gate Cards has 6 G-Power boosts, these attribute bonuses have the various attribute icons (Pyrus, Aquos, Darkus, etc.) and are added to the Bakugan when they battle on the card. The Bakugan Gate Cards come in either Silver, Gold or Copper.

What are Ability Cards?
There are three types of Ability Cards. One can give you extra G-Power boosts depending on what Bakugan you and/or your opponent uses. The other can change the rules of the mini-games. The last one can be simply destroying your opponent's battle item.

About the Trophies
There are 52 bronze trophies in this game. Personally, this is my first trophy game that has this amount of bronze. Most of them are grind trophies. If you love to grind and grind then this game is for you. I also noticed, we have way more trophies in this game then the 360 version of this game.

Walkthrough:

1 - Do Story Mode until you complete Supreme Tag Team Tournament
When you start up the game for the first time, you have to pick an attribute for your Leonidas Bakugan. DO NOT PICK HAOS. You will find it extra difficult to fight the final boss with that attribute.

Simply complete the Neo Challengers and Supreme Tag Team tournaments. You will get the "Intermediate" Trophy when you successfully completed the tournament.

1.5 - Grind in Park as much as you can
If you want an easier way to get Grand Battle Brawler, Reliable Battle Brawler and Mighty Battle Brawler...then this is a great time to do it now. Go to the park, and try to get most wins on each mode to get these trophies. Of course you can skip this step...but let me tell you this. Once you begin the Brave Battlers Tournament, the difficulty of each CPU increases. All CPU characters are on "Easy", but as you progress in story their difficulty goes to "Normal", and towards the end of the story, "Hard". Therefore this will make things more harder for you to get these three trophies. So if you want a simple easy wins for all these trophies, do this now. Skip this step if you want to grind with Normal/Hard CPUs.
(I would like to thank hermdog006 for warning us about this).

2 - Complete the Story Mode
Just complete all the tournaments. There are 4 Tournaments to go. Please note, that there will be an extra opponent to battle after the final of these tournaments.

  • Brave Brawlers
  • Maximum Power
  • Bakugan Master Cup
  • Ultimate Battle Tournament


3 - Story Mode Clean Up
Now this is where the real grinding starts. You need to build up a lot of Bakugan points to purchase every Bakugan and every card in store. If you didn't get Grand Battle Brawler, Reliable Battle Brawler and Mighty Battle Brawler trophies before this step, then you'll have to do this now. Please note ALL CPUs are set to Hard. (You can't change their difficulty).
Meanwhile, you'll have to go the park and beat every single character in a 1-on-1/Battle Royale battle at least once. It's important to keep checking on the Bulletin Board for updates.

4 - Battle Arena Mode
This is very easy but time consuming. You can spend another pointless 1 to 2 hours in this mode. You'll have to play with each character (make sure 1P plays as every character, there are no shortcuts) and play in every battlefield. If you didn't get the Special Shot trophies or the Staying Power trophy, this would be the perfect and the easiest time to do this.

    Just collect 10 G-Power Pick-Ups in any stage. You should get this in the early stages of the tournament. It must be all done in one shot.

    Hyper Ability Cards are usually hidden in passages or placed in areas that can be difficult to get. Jamming, Mirror, Damage Field, Barrier and Confusion are Hyper Ability Cards. You only need to collect 3. It must be all done in one shot. Meaning you must collect 3 of them before you make your Bakugan stand.

  • Collect three or more Battle Items in one shot.

    This can be a toughie, however still doable. Battle items are in those breakable crystals you see hanging in the air around the battlefield. If you still can't get this, then use this tip found by SnowSakura from x360achievements.org (Thank you~!):

    Play on "Haos" on hard and go through the ramp on the left which should send you flying and the effect sends you out of a tiger mouth, Once out you should see 3 crystals on the way down , steer yourself to hit at least 2/3 of them and then steer yourself to the same type of ramp on the other side and repeat.

  • Collect three or more Fuel Pick-Ups in one shot.

    This is easy. Just pick up 3 tubes filled with green liquid in one shot and this trophy will unlock. You must collect 3 of them before you make your Bakugan stand.

    The easiest shot trophy. Just aim for a crystal, change the shot type from Normal to Power and throw your Bakugan in full power to smash that crystal. Trophy unlocked.

  • Unlock all characters in the Park.

    After you completed the story, just go straight to the park. Trophy will unlock then.

  • Collect every Bakugan in the game.

    This is where most of the grind will come. Go to the Bulletin Board in the park for updates. Complete EACH task the Bulletin Board gives you. If you are still missing a couple of cards and Bakugan, then you MUST purchase the pre-evolved Bakugan first, then go to the Bulletin for updates. So basically if you don't have them all...

    • Make sure you purchase all pre-evolved Bakugan.
    • Then go to the Bulletin Board for updates
    • Find an update with a ???
    • Defeat the character who holds the evolved Bakugan.
    • Once you're done, go back to the store and the cards and Bakugan should be unlocked for you to purchase.

    Note - Cards will automatically unlock with the Bakugan. YOU WILL NOT HAVE ENOUGH POINTS TO PURCHASE ALL BAKUGAN AND CARDS AFTER STORY. You must grind and grind until you have enough.

  • Play in every battlefield in Battle Arena Mode.

    You will get this while aiming for "Through their Eyes" trophy. Just play on every battlefield in this mode. You must complete story in Story Mode to unlock all battlefields.

  • Steer a Bakugan for at least ten seconds.

    This can be done in your first battle. If not, get a Bakugan with a better endurance or upgrade your Bakugan's endurance in the store. Simply shoot your Bakugan and steer it around the gate cards by holding the R2 button and using SIXAXIS to turn left and right. Just steer it for at least 10 seconds then the trophy will unlock.

    You cannot do a Special Shot unlock you upgrade a Bakugan to at least Level 5 from the store. So I recommend to upgrade one Bakugan to Level 5 in each attribute. To use a special shot you must wait for your gauge to fill up and then successfully win a battle against the opponent's Bakugan during the same shot you used the special shot. If you want this quickly, play Battle Royale battles. This will fill up your gauge much quicker.

    Both Controllers put down your gate card. On Player 1's turn hit triangle to put down another gate card. Throw your Bakugan on any one of those cards.
