A Place Far From Home is the 31st episode of Bakugan Battle Brawlers. It aired on April 6, 2008.

Plot

The Brawlers are all sent to the Doom Dimension by Masquerade. After Shun, Marucho, Runo, and Julie manage to find Dan and Drago, the Battle Brawlers are then confronted by the six Legendary Soldiers of Vestroia. After an introduction from the soldiers, the brawlers minus Alice, are all dispersed to their respective worlds of tests. Marucho and Julie are able to pass their test with flying colors. As a reward, the two have new evolved Bakugan: Preyas's brother, Angelo/Diablo Preyas, and Subterra Hammer Gorem. The next person to face the test is Shun.

Shun and Skyress wake up to find themselves in a strange city. After examining the area, they acknowledge that the city is far from being normal. It is utterly deserted, and there is no one to be seen. Soon, Shun becomes convinced that his test is about being isolated from society. He mocks the test stating it as far too easy. As Shun ponders, looking around the town, he meets an overly-eager-to-play young girl. They begin to play some of the girl's everyday games, such as tag. Shun plays along as the role of the chaser and the little girl runs away from him. As Shun uses his ninja skills to tag her, she changes the game constantly, stating that it is now shadow tag, or something else. Later, the game subsides. The young girl takes Shun to a hill to gaze at the sunset but Shun and Skyress find something very peculiar about the sun. After a while, they discover the sun never sets. Finally, Shun recognizes the young girl as his mother, Shiori, when she was young. Things turn for the worst for Shun as his "mother" challenges him to a brawl with the Legendary Ventus soldier, Oberus.

Young Shiori begins with a Ventus Manion, easily defeated by Shun's Ravenoid. Then, she rolls a Ventus Bee Striker, and Shun rolls Ravenoid. She then states that she knows his plan of using the Ventus Triple Chain. Things start getting hectic for Shun as young Shiori unleashes the powerful Legendary Ventus Soldier, Oberus. Together, Ravenoid and Monarus are still no match for Oberus. With Turmoil being activated, Oberus sends Monarus back to Shun, and defeats Ravenoid, evening the game. Young Shiori rolls her Bee Striker again, and Shun rolls Monarus. In a race, Shiori activates Scarlet Twister and defeats Monarus. Shun rolls Skyress, while Shiori rolls Bee Striker. Skyress defeats Bee Striker with the Gate Card Tradeoff. Shun becomes distracted by the similarities of his mom and young Shiori. Shun once again rolls Skyress, while Shiori rolls Oberus. Oberus starts to play mind tricks on Shun while Skyress is busy fending off Oberus. Shun hallucinates due to the tricks Oberus is playing on him.

Meanwhile, Skyress is trying her hardest to snap Shun out of his hallucination but is taken down by Oberus and burns as she hits the ground. Shun starts to realize that he needs his friends to move on and that each one of his friends are important as ever.

By the time Shun realizes this, it is far too late. Skyress has perished and Shun mourns over her loss. As drops of Shun's tears fall on Skyress' Ability Card, a sudden beaming light appears on the card and transforms into a completely new ability. Skyress is seen not only reviving but also undergoing her evolution. Now that Skyress has evolved into Storm Skyress, she is able to defeat Oberus and pass the test.

As Shun says farewell to his "mom", Oberus appears and requests the Brawlers to save Vestroia. Shun and Skyress agrees and tells Oberus that she can trust them to do what's right as they've passed their test.
