Don't let their cute mugs fool you, Pokeys swarm to the nearest target causing massive damage. Best deployed in packs.
A small monster with a cute look. Pokeys are instant-heal, high-damage, low-health monsters which are extremely powerful in groups (though this makes them vulnerable to lasers, rail and cannons). Pokeys are weak on their own. Because of this, it is best to either distract splash damage towers with a tank such as Gargantula, or destroy all splash towers with bombs, Destronaut or other aerial monsters before sending in Pokeys, unless there are no splash defense towers in sight. Pokeys are very powerful against Focused type defensive towers in groups, and can easily mow down a group of back-to-back Tesla towers or Sniper Towers.
