Types Of Beyblades
"Attack" Beyblades are fun to watch in a battle as they go around the stadium (because of their design - but more on that in a different article) and come to the center to attack the opponents. So if you are using two attack Beyblades in a battle, the Beyblades may chase each other around the edge of the stadium after the initial contact for some time before coming in contact again. Example of attack Beyblades are all "Valkyrie", "Xcalibur" and "Hyperion" Beyblades.
"Stamina" Beyblades usually spin at the center of the stadium and are not that exciting to watch as "Attack" Beyblades. However, this boring behavior is their best weapon. Although usually "Stamina" beyblades will lose against "Attack" Beyblades, a battle between "Stamina" beyblade Mirage Fafnir and "Attack" beyblade Brave Valkyrie is worth watching and the result may surprise you.
Other examples of "Stamina" Beyblades are all "Fafnir" and "Scythe Kronus". Moving onto "Defense" Beyblade - these beyblades usually move around near the center of the stadium but not as confined as "Stamina" Beyblades. A battle between "Attack" beyblade, such as any Valkyrie, and "Defense" Beyblades, such as "King Helios" can be super exciting for kids due to the high number of touches between the beyblades during the battle and possible knock outs.
While choosing Beyblades, you will need remember one more thing. Most beyblades are right spin. However, some beyblades are left spin. If a beyblade doesn't include a launcher, you may need to purchase an additional launcher. Results in a battle will vary widely depending on not only which Beyblade you choose but also your launcher. I have added a table with some examples of different types of Beyblades below.
In summary, you may consider buying 2 or 3 kinds of beyblades among "Attack", "Defense", "Stamina" and "Balance" beyblades to try out, a stadium and launchers if your beyblades don't come with one, to get your or your kids' beyblade journey started. Have fun!
