Plot

Dan is chatting with the brawlers online, when his mom requested him to run to the local supermarket to buy some meat due to the supermarket having a huge sale. Runo is also asked to buy some meat for dinner. Dan and Runo were off in town when they bumped each other while turning around the corner. Both Runo and Dan are shocked they meet for the first time in real life, finding out that they have been living in the same town. When they bump into each other, Dan is unaware he drops his BakuPod. Dan rushes off to the meat sale, while Runo picks up Dan's BakuPod and finds a message from Masquerade on it. Wanting to avenge the Bakugan Masquerade previously took from her, she decides to go off and battle him even though the battle invitation was meant for Dan. When Runo goes to meet Masquerade, she finds out that her challenger, is actually a boy named Tatsuya sent by Masquerade to battle Dan. Dan goes finding his BakuPod and ends up finding Runo about to start a brawl. Dan argues with Runo that this is his brawl, although Runo reasons with Dan that she really wants to have one shot at getting revenge for her Bakugan that were sent into the Doom Dimension. Dan understands how much the battle means to her and allows her to battle. Runo struggles at first, although but is soon able to make a comeback and wins the battle. After the battle, Dan and Runo celebrate the victory against Tatsuya and their first real life acquaintance.
