Marco and his goons challenge Dan to a battle, Dan tells them that he can take all three of them by himself. Drago fights Marco's Bear Bakugan and the two kids' Boxer Bakugan. Dan tells Drago to evolve, but Drago cannot seem to evolve, embarrassing Dan. Marco and his goons go in for an attack, but Cyndeous is thrown out, Cyndeous easily defeats all three Bakugan, beating Marco and his goons. Back at the studio, the AO question why Drago couldn't evolve, they conclude that the Core Cell light helped Drago evolve, and evolution must be a rare thing and they'll never see Drago evolve again. Dan mentions that Nillious evolved above ground without a Core Cell, but Lia, Wynton, and Shun were never told this - Dan forgot to mention this. Since Nillious evolved, this means it isn't just Drago, their Bakugan can evolve too.
Meanwhile, an individual comes up to Marco who harasses his goons for leaving because the AO is too strong. The individual tells Marco that they'll get along, he despises the AO and needs a favor - he wants Marco to take him to the AO, he will help Marco with his friends. At the park, the AO try to figure out how to draw energy from the Core Cell, they try imagining the Core Cell but nothing happens. Alone with Hydorous, Shun looks for the Core Cell when he is confronted by Marco when he hears the voice of the individual, Masato Kazami, Shun's older cousin. Masato sends out Aquos Serpenteze, initiating a battle, but he misses on purpose to show how strong he is. Masato tells Marco thanks for his help, but he doesn't need his services anymore, Serpenteze scares off Marco and Dan, Wynton, and Lia then arrive. Masato says he is taking Shun and his Bakugan back to Japan, Shun reveals that Masato is his cousin. Masato tells Shun that he knows all about The Maze, the experience with the Core Cell, and Dragonoid's evolution.
Shun disagrees and refuses to go home saying his father gave him permission to stay, Masato tells Shun that the situation has changed and Shun's father sent him here with full authority to speak on his behalf. Shun and Masato then begin their battle, Serpenteze dodges Hydorous' attacks, Masato tells Shun that he was raised from birth to be his father's successor and carry on the Kazami name - he needs to put his family and business first and foremost.
