'''New Vestroia''' (ニューヴェストロイア, Nyū Vesutoroia) is the second season of the anime series, Bakugan Battle Brawlers. It introduced a new battle system, including Bakugan Traps. This season contains 52 episodes, and was later followed by Gundalian Invaders.
- Main article: Vestals
The Vestals are an alien species that have conquered New Vestroia until the Bakugan Resistance defeated the Vexos and freed New Vestroia.
The Three Dimension Controllers
The Vexos created three Dimension Controllers to change the Bakugan into ball form again. The cities that have the Dimension Controllers are named Alpha City, Beta City, and Gamma City.
The Resistance's job is to destroy the three Dimension Controllers to restore the Bakugan to their natural form. They managed to destroy all the Dimension Controllers, including the one in Hydron's palace.
New Battle System
- The new battle system has a Life Gauge which has total 500 life points that will cause win or lose.
- The Life Gauge will be damaged when your Bakugan loses. (e.g. damage is 350 Gs, 500-350=150)
- When the life gauge hits zero, you lose.
- Unlike the original version, defeated Bakugan can be returned to battle, and only one Gate Card is set at a time. There is no limit to how many Bakugan can stand on one card.
- If the winning Bakugan's G-Power is 500 or more than the Bakugan that lost the battle, the losing Bakugan will go to the winner. The only way to get the lost Bakugan back is to beat it by 500 Gs.
- You're allowed as many abilities as you want; the general rule, however, is that each card is only used once per round, though there have been exceptions.
- The Brawlers need a Gauntlet to start each battle. The phrase to begin is: "Gauntlet, Power Strike!".

- There are rare occurrences to where Japanese anime airs in another country before airing in its original country. Bakugan Battle Brawlers: New Vestroia is one of them because the first season was a flop in Japan, so the second series was given to Nelvana so they could air it first, mainly to
see if it would be successful in English communities before airing it in Japan. After seeing how successful it was worldwide outside of Japan, the Bakugan anime was given another chance in Japan. When Japan first aired New Vestroia episode 1, the English version had already aired New Vestroia episode 42 in Canada a few days before that.
- This is the only season that has the main villain use a Pyrus Attributed Bakugan instead of the Darkus Attribute, like the other seasons.
- This is also is the only season where the last member to join the six main brawlers is Ventus instead of Darkus.
- This season has a special bond with family ties, especially with the father of Hydron (Zenoheld) and the father of Spectra and Mira. (Professor Clay) What these fathers have in common is that their sons were never "like
father, like son", as stated by Zenoheld when Hydron battled him.
- In this season, Gate Cards play a less key role in battles
