Summoning is a super-rare zombie superpower trick card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Brainy class. It costs 1 to play, and its ability makes a random zombie that costs 2 or less on a selected lane.
It is based on the real meaning of summoning, the act of ordering someone to be present.

Summoning is, alongside Eureka, a rather potentially rewarding but unreliable superpower, as its result can range anywhere from a Zombie or Cat Lady to Cuckoo Zombie, Gargologist, Toxic Waste Imp, or even Barrel of Deadbeards. You can normally treat this like a cheaper Beam Me Up or Hail-a-Copter, but also one that could be much less powerful depending on which zombie it makes.
The player can use this trick to absorb a hit from a powerful plant, land a free hit on the plant hero, or take out vital plants early on such as Pea Pod or Sunflower. When getting this from a block, it's best to see if there's a good lane to fill a zombie with. Otherwise, you could save it for later in a pinch.
While being a minor synergy, Professor Brainstorm can use this to boost Unlife of the Party for a cheap price.
The zombie that can be made by this trick can range from something as weak as an Imp to something as strong, helpful, or dangerous as a Toxic Waste Imp, Turkey Rider, or Gargologist. As a result, you might want to make sure that you have a plant in each lane in order to be prepared. However, also be careful about the first turn, as Summoning can easily take care of weak plants such as Sunflower.
