At night, Drago tells Dan good night, as the AO and their Bakugan go to bed; Meanwhile, a golden light emits in the forest, a Bakugan ball flies into the sky, revealing a golden bird Bakugan. Drago begins to hear the voice of the golden Bakugan in his sleep, he rolls out of his “bed” and leaves Dan’s house to find the voice, but the other AO Bakugan do so as well.
