A Pole Vaulting Zombie with a pole (animated)

The pole is a vaulting item used by Pole Vaulting Zombies in Plants vs. Zombies. It is used to jump over a single plant and help the Pole Vaulting Zombie get past the player's defenses. A Tall-nut and a Cactus if timed correctly will block Pole Vaulting Zombies from jumping over a plant.


The pole appears to be a long white stick with a red center. Because it is not an armor, it does not change form at anytime, with the exception of when it is used to vault.


For more strategies, see Pole Vaulting Zombie.

Because it is not metallic, the pole cannot be taken away by a Magnet-shroom. However, because the Pole Vaulting Zombie cannot vault over Tall-nuts, it is advised to place a row of Tall-nuts in front of your defenses so that your plants in the row behind are not eaten. If you have enough sun, you can use Pumpkins to protect your second row of plants from the left instead.
