The Day New Vestroia Stood Still is the 30th episode of Bakugan: New Vestroia. It aired on December 5, 2009. In Japan, it aired on September 28, 2010.
Klaus, Baron, and Ace, successfully contact Dan and warn them about the Vexos, so Dan decides to head to Vestal, and face the Vexos. However, when Zenoheld decides to test the BT System, Shun heads to New Vestroia with his newly evolved Master Ingram, while the others head to Vestal. Once Shun arrives, he finds that all the Bakugan are missing and Master Ingram is still in ball form. Skyress arrives and tells him that a metal sphere came from the sky, and sent a beam that trapped all the Bakugan in Ball Form. Shun attempts to destroy the device but finds that it is protected by a force field. All of a sudden Lync appears to take the Ventus energy and a battle ensues. When Master Ingram and Hylash have trouble against Lync's new Mechanical Bakugan Aluze, Shun is forced to call on Skyress for help. During the battle, Ingram begins feeling doubts about his evolution and is taken out of the battle. When Skyress begins struggling against Lync, Master Ingram decides to embrace his new powers and re-enters the battle, defeating Lync. In the aftermath, Skyress disappears and wishes Shun and Ingram luck.

Bakugan Trap Seen
- When Shun opens his Gate Card, he says "Gate Card set! Bakugan brawl! Storm Skyress descend!" instead of "Element Merge" (the name of the Gate Card he used). It is unknown how Teletoon made this mistake.
- If Shun hadn't used Skyress in this battle, Lync would have won for the first time.
- From this episode onwards, Master Ingram is depicted as male. Promotional material from the first half of season 2 referred to Master Ingram as "he", but Ingram had a feminine voice prior to evolving. Though interestingly, Ingram was referred to as male pronouns even before this.
- The name of this episode is based on the film "The Day the Earth Stood Still".
- This is the first and only episode in Season 2 where Shun used his former guardian Storm Skyress in a battle. This is also the last time Shun uses Skyress, as well as Skyress' last speaking appearance.
- While this may be entirely coincidental, the title "The Day New Vestroia Stood Still" is reminiscent of the premise of the episode of the first season where Shun finds himself in a town where time stands still. This was also the episode where Skyress evolved into Storm Skyress, making it an interesting parallel to this episode, which comes right after Ingram had evolved by the power of the Legendary Soldier Oberus , much as Skress did, and is also the last episode in which Skyress was a prominent character.
- The episode also had Shun finding his mother, who had been lost to him. Storm Skyress was a Bakugan who, being a caring female, and in the absence of Shun's actual mother, had become a sort of mother figure to Shun. By returning to Shun for the last time in this episode, it could be said that there is a comparison to be made between the two.
