Trhyno takes Dan and Drago to a journey to Drago's past memories, showing them Vestroia, the planet of the Bakugan. It turns out The Maze is the place where Vestroia and Earth intersected and joined. The planet Vestroia is sustained by an energy cycle of Bakugan battles and Core Cells, but one individual thought this was wrong - Tiko! The Supreme Bakugan Council discussed the fate of Vestroia, including Tiko, who is actually a Aurelus Bakugan. Tiko argued about Bakugan constantly fighting, they are getting wounded for the sake of Vestroia, the system is wrong and it has to be changed. Pyravian argues there is no other source, but Tiko says things have changed with his new research that will supply Bakugan will infinite energy and preserve its life cycle - the Victory Source.

Maximus and Tiko fought many times, it was an incredible battle until the legendary armor was lost, allowing Tiko to escape. Tiko used his evil influence to infect not only Bakugan, but Core Cells.
It was only a matter of time before Vestroia fell to Tiko, the V Virus doesn't create energy, it devours energy and will devour all life. In order to avoid total destruction, the Supreme Council decided to fuse their dying planet with another planet, Earth, to wait for Vestroia and the Bakugan to be revived.
