Pod Squad is an achievement in Plants vs. Zombies 2. It requires the player to max out a Pea Pod while it is on a mine cart. It is worth 15 points on Game Center for iOS devices and 1,500 XP on Android devices.


Its name is an example of rhyming, as the words "pod" and "squad" both end with an "-odd" sound.


Minecarts are one of the best places to put maxed out Pea Pods, as it lets the plant cover different lanes when needed. Thus, the achievement leads players towards a viable defense strategy. 625 sun needs to be spent to max out the Pea Pod. A good level to do this is in a Last Stand level, so you can put down five Pea Pods and be done. You can use Plant Food on |Sunflowers and other sun-producing plants to get more sun. If you have the Instant Recharge upgrade, you can instead use Plant Food to ignore the recharge of the Pea Pod. However, this is not recommended, since it takes only a few seconds to recharge a Pea Pod.

You can easily do this in Wild West on Day 6, 8, 18, or 25. However, it is best done on Day 8 due to the large density of zombies.
