Pogo Bouncer can be described as a bundle containing Backyard Bounce and a 1-cost zombie. Compared to Backyard Bounce, Pogo Bouncer benefits from Flag Zombie but not Gentleman Zombie, and is vulnerable to Grave Buster. Pogo Bouncer is really useful for resetting any plant with increased stats or clearing the way other zombies to do damage to the plant hero. In-Crypted and Mixed-Up Gravedigger can be used with Pogo Bouncer to make him bounce yet another plant by returning him to a gravestone. You can also use Pogo Bouncer to bounce a plant in front of Stealthy Imp or other Anti-Hero zombies, doing massive damage in one turn.
Using Team Mascot and Zombie Coach is also a good strategy, due to him being a sports zombie with relatively low stats. However, only Neptuna can use this combo. You can also use him with Headstone Carver to make him even more of a threat.
It is not recommended to use this if a Jelly Bean is on the field, unless you are bouncing Jelly Bean itself.
There are not many counters to Pogo Bouncer. When he bounces a plant, it'll be too late to play it again before the end of the turn. The only option is to play that plant again. If possible, you may try to play a lot of low-cost plants, especially with Team-Up, so the zombie hero may have to think longer on what to bounce. In addition, having many boosted plants could also put the pressure on what to bounce. Since he comes out of a gravestone, the easiest way to destroy him is with Grave Buster.
Another option is to try and manipulate what Pogo Bouncer will Bounce. Some cards such as Magic Beanstalk benefit from being Bounced again, so you still get some benefit even if one is Bounced.
