"I'm a kind of ice cream! Sort of!"
There is nothing really remarkable about Pismashio. While it is a basic plant with nearly above-average stats, other 2-sun Guardian plants like Cactus, Sea-Shroom, Water Chestnut and Jugger-Nut can outclass it in a lot of situations, as well as those in other classes like Black-Eyed Pea, Cabbage-Pult, Fire Peashooter and Snow Pea. Nonetheless, this is a fairly reliable and balanced plant. Any strategies and counters with nuts apply to it as well.
While this isn't a dangerous plant in any way, it can give you some trouble on turn 2 because no 2-brain cost zombie can destroy Pismashio and survive a hit from it at the same time. Tricks like Electrobolt, Stayin' Alive, Slammin' Smackdown, or Rolling Stone are good counters to it. If the opponent chooses to boost it, Squirrel Herder can always take care of it.
- It makes the same sound as Cabbage-Pult when attacking.
- When it attacks, the pistachio it fires from its shell shrinks.
