Strong enough to destroy a Plant, but pH-balanced for a Zombie.
The effectiveness of this trick is directly related to how many plants are on ground lanes at the moment of using it, and how strong said plants are.
The best moments to use this trick is early in the game, when there are a lot of weaker plants in the ground lanes, or when the player has a lot of zombies on the ground lanes themselves and using Acid Rain would allow those zombies to survive any attacks coming from the plants. This trick can also weaken or stop Mushroom rushes, depending on whether Buff-Shroom has been used.
Another way to use it would be when a Guardian hero is spamming Potato Mines on ground lanes, instantly wiping all of them out.
Acid Rain can be used in a boss mission like The Power of the Rose, which will make the level relatively simple.
If possible, play your important plants outside ground lanes. Using plants with 1 strength or 1 health is a perfect way to be ruined by this superpower.
- Storm Front could be considered as the exact opposite, as it is a plant trick and gives all plants +1/+1.
- Coincidentally, they are both related to rain.
- However, Storm Front boosts all plants while Acid Rain only affects plants on Ground lanes.
- It is odd how this superpower does not affect plants on the heights or on aquatic lanes, considering in real life, acid rain can affect air and water as well.
