Bonk Choy can be considered as the plant equivalent to Tennis Champ. However, Bonk Choy has higher base strength than Tennis Champ, with the extra strength it gets is lower than the zombie counterpart. Hence, the strategy for this plant is similar to Tennis Champ's: only use it early game, as later it will only act as a weak card.
Bonk Choy is an excellent counter against zombies that cost 1 brain but have more than 1 health (i.e. Dog Walker, Headstone Carver, Arm Wrestler, etc.) The only possible zombie that can survive is Cat Lady (if unharmed.)
This plant's low health means that it's relatively easy to destroy. Because of this, expect the plant hero to use this as a cheap way to destroy an important zombie with 3 or less. Direct damage effects such as Conga Zombie, Fireworks Zombie or Bungee Plumber, and stat-reducing abilities like Nibble, Pied Piper or Acid Rain are all excellent options to use against Bonk Choy. However, early game, the Plant Hero may place Bonk Choy away from a zombie, to deal 3 damage early. In this case, the only method of dealing with it is to read the opponent's first turn and then use a trick like Nibble or Bungee Plumber.
