Power Battle (パワーバトル!, Pawā Batoru!?) is the 19th episode of BakuTech! Bakugan. It aired on August 11, 2012.


The episode begins in the outside view of the reconstructed Bakugan Dojo wherein Tatsuma was cheering for the revival of the Dojo and his acquisition of Metal Parts for his Gif Jinryu.

After the three boys' brief talk about Tatsuma's new accessory, Master Jyou enters the Dojo. Tatsuma examines two Gate Cards and sets them in the field. Tatsuma takes his turn first. With the Metal Parts, Gif Jinryu noticeably stands more effectively compared to the repetitive failures that it had shown before. Harubaru shoots Rise Dragaon but was surprised when it stood in the same Gate Card as Gif Jinryu rather than in the adjacent Gate Card. Raichi called it "Power Battle" and Master Jyou explains the Battle Phase part in the standard Brawling Rules.

Tatsuma commands "Gate Card Open!" revealing the Gate Card which is advantageous to him. Gif Jinryu dramatically overthrows Rise Dragaon out of the Gate Card. Tatsuma cheers as he captured the Gate Card. Master Jyou silently compliments Tatsuma's improvement.

In the second round; Tatsuma and Harubaru stood their Bakugan again in the same Gate Card. Harubaru flips the Gate Card open revealing that it was just a Silver Gate Card with no effect. Tatsuma used an Ability Card against him, causing Gif Jinryu to win and for Tatsuma to take another Gate Card. Tatsuma declares "Last One!"

The last turn of the First Brawl was skipped but it showed Tatsuma getting three Gate Cards in a row. As Harubaru goes crazy, Master Jyou silently comments on how Harubaru may be good at Critical K.O. but he certainly lacks a lot in Power Battles. Getting a hold of himself, Harubaru signals to Tatsuma for another brawl.

Parts of the second brawl was skipped. Tatsuma was shown activating an Ability Card which allows him five rerolls. In the fifth Reroll, he inflicts Critical K.O. on Rise Dragaon. Unable to be deterred by his surprising defeat, Harubaru takes out an Ability Card from his pocket. However, it is a wrong Ability Card that does nothing for Rise Dragaon but for Blan Shoult. Master Jyou calls it a foolish mistake.

In the final round of the second brawl, Tatsuma opens the Gate Card and revealed it to be a low-balling Gate Card. Tatsuma wins the second brawl.

A man in an orange winged jacket approaches the Bakugan Dojo as Harubaru rants about his defeat. Master Jyou lectures Harubaru about the latters lack of knowledge in Power Battles and Raichi wonders about how Tatsuma is so good at Power Battles. The man enters the Dojo and greets Harubaru and Raichi that it has been a while. In return, the two boys greeted him "Harou-nii!"
