Pomegunate (机枪石榴; pinyin: jīqiāng shíliú) is a plant in both the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2 and in Plants vs. Zombies: Journey to the West. He attacks zombies by spitting pomegranate seeds at them.
Pomegunate is based on the punica granatum, also known as the pomegranate. The second part is a reference to its Plant Food ability, which is similar to a machine gun, but his normal attack is more like a scattergun.
In Plants vs. Zombies: Journey to the West, he was a store bought plant which could be purchased with 120 gems and couldn't be imitated. He spat seeds at zombies in his lane these seeds dealt 20 damage per shot, but dealt more damage the closer zombies were to the him. He could also randomly do a special attack, firing a barrage of seeds at the zombies in his lane.
In the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2, He is a uncommon monthly special plant. He spits multiple seeds at zombies in a 3x1 space in front of him. If you want to receive Puzzle Pieces for him, you can obtain some from your daily login reward.

When Pomegunate went to the library to peek at the school beauty he accidentally read a book entitled "1000 Ways to Eat Pomegranates", on the title page was a quote that changed his life, "No matter how you eat it, pomegranate seeds are always spit out." Then he joined the army, and became a machine gunner with oddly bad marksmanship. And then he discharged, and became a landlord who ate seeds and sunbathed every day. And then? Don't you see that guy over there who opened his mouth to spit at you?

This plant is better used in groups because of the heavy damage output in multiple lanes. At level 1, you should keep this heavily defended with defensive plants such as Wall-nuts, Tall-nuts, and Infi-nut, to ensure that the Pomegunate does not get easily overwhelmed by the zombie horde due to his low range. Support him with Winter Melon, Laser Bean or Snapdragon since he cannot stand alone.
From Level 2, treat this plant like how you would use Snapdragon. He can become very powerful at level 4 since his Plant Food effect is activated upon planting. Combining this with Sunflower Singer at this level can make him even more dangerous since he has received upgrades to his damage output.
