Strategies

With

Hot Date can be described as a combination of Sweet Potato and Potato Mine, with the ability to move a zombie to his lane and do damage to the zombie in his lane upon being destroyed. This is useful for weak, but dangerous zombies like Stealthy Imp, Zookeeper, and Zombie Chicken, or Amphibious zombies like Dolphin Rider and Ducky Tube Zombie. Hot Date can be useful against Fire Rooster, because when you move Fire Rooster, it will destroy Hot Date, causing Hot Date to destroy it in return. Keep in mind that this plant does not have the Team-Up trait, so he cannot be used to protect other plants.

You could also boost Hot Date with strength-boosting cards such as Spineapple if the damage output is not enough.

Against

Hot Date may be fragile, but he can mess up your strategies and easily take out any zombie with 3 health or less. The best way to handle him is to destroy him with high health zombies. PvZH Armored IconArmored and shielded zombies excel at this, as their traits reduce the damage they take. Any zombie with high health will do, however. You can use Rolling Stone to destroy him, but keep in mind that he may destroy any zombie you have there. If you are a PvZH Sneaky IconSneaky zombie hero, you can use Smoke Bomb to move the zombie, and then use any trick you like to destroy him. Hot Date is harmless if there is nothing in his lane, unless your opponent uses Spineapple or boosting tricks. You can also Bounce him to remove Hot Date out of the board, preventing the ability for a turn.

As any PvZH Hearty IconHearty hero, you can use Escape through Time on a zombie that is in front of Hot Date.
