Welcome to Bleach Answers. What would you like to know?

Ichigo's hollow mask is a power-up that has a time limit and takes up more energy than his bankai. If he can help it, I assume he would rather use his bankai before resorting to the mask; however, he has been shown to use it with his shikai while training with the Vizard.
