In the begining, Bakukan cards fell from the sky. The cards showed each of the Bakugan characters, their powers and environments. Children all over the word began to play with cards. They didn't know that their battle cards showed real events in another world called Vestroia.
In Vestroia, an evil Bakugan named Naga tried to seize power for himself. But when he tried to absorb the silent core, the negative energy proved too much for Naga. The negative energy exploded. The Infinity Core fell to earth and the Bakugan characters of Vestroia began to appear in Bakugan battles on Earth.
