Bakugan: Geogan Rising (爆丸ジオガンライジング, Bakugan Jiogan Raijingu?) is the name of the third season of the second generation of Bakugan, preceded by Bakugan: Armored Alliance. This season introduces Geogan, a new gameplay element.
The existence of a third season was first officially hinted to on October 2nd, 2020, as emails began to be sent out to BakuMasters about the third annual Bakugan Sneak Peek which occurred on November 14-15th. 
Because of concerns due to the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the Bakugan Sneak Peek was held virtually. In addition, the usual in-person TCG tournament was changed to online matches in Bakugan: Champions of Vestroia.
The Bakugan Metaverse is an official Bakugan-themed Roblox experience that was released on September 6, 2021. This format was used to premiere an episode of Geogan Rising on September 8, 2021.
Bakugan: Geogan Rising introduces a new gameplay element, Geogan. These figures deviate from the standard spherical ball form, similar to Bakugan Traps from the Legacy series. These figures serve as single-turn Bakugan substitutes.
