Translucent Bakugan are Bakugan that at the beginning of battle can either choose to keep their assigned Attribute or change it to their opponent's. They are as their name says, Translucent. Another name for Translucent is Lyte. Besides the regular one there are four more types of Translucent Bakugan which function with no differences, namely Neon, Glow, Solar and Phantom.
Translucent Bakugan are called Clear/C in Japan. Unlike non-Japanese rules, Translucent Bakugan has no effect in any battle like most treatments in Japan. There are Japan exclusive Translucent Bakugan types such as Clear Blue and Yellow Clear. During the promotion for New Vestroia in Japan, translucent Pyrus Ultra Dragonoids and translucent Darkus Percival with limited edition ability cards were handed out to winners of the online campaign in the official website.
Neon Bakugan are Translucent Bakugan with neon light color tone instead of the usual one. Neon Bakugan in some Attributes, such as Aquos and Subterra are often mistaken as normal translucent Bakugan. The only difference between regular Translucent and Neon Bakugan in these Attributes is that Neon have lighter color tone. They are first released in BakuNeon series.
Glow Bakugan are Translucent Bakugan with darker color tone. Unlike their name has stated, they do not glow in the dark. They are often mistaken as normal translucent Bakugan because their color tone is too close to the usual one.
