Not actually a shark.
This zombie has pretty good strength for a 2-brain cost zombie. However, what makes this zombie shine is his Bullseye trait. Using this to avoid a block is recommended. However, he has very low health, and since plant heroes go second, it can be hard to land a hit with Pool Shark.
A recommended strategy is to use this with Teleport, as the plant hero has limited options to prevent this, especially in early game. This will allow you to get free damage on the plant hero for the cost of 3. This will make sure that Pool Shark doesn't die immediately. Beware when playing against Smarty heroes as they have Brainana, which can prevent the use of Teleport entirely.
Pool Shark is also a sports zombie, which means he can be useful in a Rustbolt deck based around them, since Team Mascot can boost his stats and Zombie Coach can protect him from incoming damage by making him can't be hurt. Zombie heroes like Immorticia can boost Pool Shark to be even more threatening with tricks such as Vitamin Z. Rustbolt can also give him more health with tricks such as Rock Wall and Camel Crossing. Finally, Super Brainz can play Smoke Bomb or Carried Away to move Pool Shark to an unoccupied lane to do extra damage to his opponent.
While having 3 only, this zombie usually fails to survive for long due to the amount of his health, which is 1. Using almost any damaging plant or trick will help destroy this zombie. However, in the early game, most plants will die in the process of defeating this. Also beware of bonus attacks and moving methods, as they can give Pool Shark the upper hand.
- His description is a reference to the fact that it is called Pool Shark, but it isn't actually a species of shark, jokingly taking the term "pool shark" literally.
- Sometimes during his idle animation, he wipes his pool ball on his sleeve.
