How To Play With Mechtogan in a Battle
When in play, the Mechtogan are considered as support devices like the Trap and Mobile Assault. It is not considered like a regular Bakugan.
The general rule is that you can only have up to two support pieces, in any combination. Therefore you will have to pick only two among your Mechtogan, Mechtogan Titans, Battle Gears, Traps, and Mobile Assaults. For example, you can have 2 Mechtogan as your support pieces for the game, or 1 Mechtogan and 1 Mechtogan Titan, or 1 Mechtogan Titan and 1 Battle Gear, and so on.
You can play the Mechtogan with any Bakugan from all the series of Bakugan, ranging from season 1 up to the newest series of Mechtanium Surge.
Put the Mechtogan into play by placing the Mechtogan (from your unused pile) next to your standing Bakugan. The Bakugan and the Mechtogan you are using should have the same Attribute. Transform the Mechtogan into its full form with the Activator card to reveal its G-power. Add the G-power to your Bakugan's G-power. If that boost is not enough, then you can attach BakuNano to increase your G-power.
You will only be able to use 1 Mechtogan in a battle, on one Gate card. This is a new rule brought about by the Mechtanium Surge season. You may only use 1 support piece on one Gate card, whether that support piece is a Mechtogan, a Mechtogan Titan, Mobile Assault, Trap, or Battle Gear.
