Bakugan Armored Alliance introduces Baku-Gear, support pieces, Gate Trainers, and Faction/Attribute symbols are back. Of course, there's new Bakugan and cards.
This page will be updated as the event goes on.
Baku-Gear is here, it's the BakuNano/Battle Gear of this reboot. Baku-Gear come in two forms. There is a magnetic BakuCore that attaches to Bakugan Ultra, and a BakuCore with pegs that can attach to Core and Bakugan Ultra Bakugan.
Baku-Gear always comes with cards that you can put in your 40 card deck. Baku-Gear is a new Type of Card in the game and they cost energy and give / boosts alongside other effects. Some BakuCores can lower the energy cost to use them.
Baku-Gear Cards can be pulled from Booster Packs, which means they are technically backward compatible with the old Bakugan Battle Planet Bakugan.
According to RAGINxXxCAJUN: "You play BakuGear like tool cards, you may only have one on a Bakugan at once ( remember the cards and the toys have nothing to do with one another from a competitive standpoint, you can discard an existing gear to play another in its place".
Core Bakugan and Ultra Bakugan single packs are back, as well as Starter Packs. There is a new arena with an exclusive Aurelus Hydorous. Battle Packs have become Baku-Gear Packs, which contain 2 Bakugan Ultra, 2 Core Bakugan, and 3 Baku-Gear, 1 Ultra and Baku-Gear are exclusive to the pack. There also appears to be "Combat Sets" which contain the Ultra Bakugan and their Baku-Gear.

The main partner Bakugan of The Awesome Ones are back with new designs, Nillious too. They are still called the same names, this will be confusing. So we have separate pages for them now (Nillious (Battle Planet) and Nillious (Armored Alliance)). We will work on adding pages for the new Bakugan as soon as possible, hopefully we can get higher quality images of them in a few days. For now, check out this nice checklist.
New card set: Armored Elite/AV
New cards were shown, there's too many! Be sure to check out Armored Elite for a list of Cards, it will be updated as the event goes on. Eventually we hope to provide high quality scans of the cards when it is released. There's an Armored Elite Starter Set too.
New mechanics include Dual Faction Cards, Dual Type Cards (Flip Hero Card), and Baku-Gear Cards (new type), and new Combat Keywords.
Card Collections are also back, this time they include Deck Boxes to store your cards.
Cimoooooooo won the Invitational last year and got to name this Bakugan, which he named Cimoga.
