Bakugan Trap is a type of Bakugan that comes in-line with Bakugan: New Vestroia and the Bakuneon series Bakugan. Unlike previous pieces, they only sometimes have G power and do not battle.
Bakugan Traps are shaped differently than normal Bakugan pieces. Each Trap has an attribute, or a second attribute symbol hidden inside. Unlike the normal pieces, they are only played during the battle stage, after the Gate Card has been flipped up. The Trap piece must have the same attribute as the battling piece. The battling piece then has its attribute changed to the attribute hidden inside the Trap piece.
