The official name of this plant is Saucer Squash. However, a literal translation can be found in its infobox. The official name is to be used on all pages that refer to this plant.

Saucer Squash (飞碟瓜; pinyin: fēidié guā) is the fifth plant obtained in Sky City in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. Similar to Stunion, it stuns zombies for around 10 seconds and then flies away. If the Saucer Squash is level 2, it can capture low health zombies while it captures higher health zombies if it is level 3.

Origins

NormalPumpkins

Although referred as a zucchini in-game, Saucer Squash is more similar to Cucurbita pepo, better known as pumpkin. Its body is based on a flying saucers, also known as flying disc. It is a term for a supposed type of described flying craft with a disc or saucer-shaped body, commonly used generically to refer to any anomalous flying object. Its eyes resemble alien's eyes in general descriptions.

飞碟瓜能发出光线捕捉接近的僵尸

植物特征:黄色植物、飞行植物、外星人
大家总是误把飞碟瓜当做外星生物,但是大家慢慢发现,它只不过是因为过于内向而不敢融入大家。不过,千万不要惹飞碟瓜生气,被它的光照到可不是一件轻松的事情。

    In English:

    Saucer Squash emits light to capture zombies close to it.

    Plant feature: yellow plant, flying plant, alien

    Everyone always mistakes Saucer Squash as an alien, but they slowly discover that it just doesn't integrate with them because it's too shy. However, don't make it angry, being shone on by its light is not an easy thing.

Strategies

Just like Stunion, Saucer Squash is a good plant to stall zombies. Because Stunion is not an airborne plant, the player should use Saucer Squash if the player is playing Sky City, as they have the same sun cost. In other areas however, Stunion should be used due to its recharging speed.

However, a level 2 or 3 Saucer Squash with the capture ability usually means it is more worthwhile to bring it along over Stunion.

Saucer Squash should also be used if the player is going to engage Robot zombies like Disco-tron 3000 and Mecha-Football Zombies as unlike Stunion, Saucer Squash can stun them.
