Threats & Synergies
Ez to pull early, but if you're behind and she knows, what she's doing, it will be hard to comeback. Dont get harrased and try to pick her or her adc, she wont shield enough for the big incoming damage after whole combo. Remember her ult: Shields cant secure mates of Pykes ult, but the HP-raise does!
EZ to pull, but every heal is bad for pyke and his ultimate. Take care of her stun, or u are dead after ur engage!
She has a small heal, but is very ez to pull and cant disengage fast enough. Play aggressive and she will never come back into the game.
These damn tanks are bad for pyke. Avoid his Q and try to pick his adc. Dont pull him, you just help him gap close - thats what he wants.
Dont get caged, play aggressive, pull her life out of her.
Pull she sh*t out of her. She is so squishy + has no escape
Ali is not so hard to lane, but in late he is annoying, because he is unkillable. Just kill his ADC in laning phase.
Braum wants to be pulled. All these dudes are annoying for pyke. Try to pick the ADC! It's risky to go in vs Braum. He has potential to stun you 100 times if your E has CD. Better play defensive until your jungle comes.
Shield + Speedbuff is annoying, but she is pullable and killable, like her adc. Avoid her skillshot!
If he is a good player, it can be hard, if not, you have an ez lane. If he pulls you, wait for his E, after that dash out with your E.
Pull her! If you damage the ADC, she just heals him up. Always try to get her first, if its possible.
Janna is very ugly on lane. Fast as hell, hard to pull, she has disengage and heal. But it is not impossible to beat her!
The only enemy support, that has the same speed like Pyke (to roam and get vision). But he hasn't that much offensive spells! Use this, pick him and kill him.
A well played Rakan is very difficult to deal with. He has like 1000 dashes. Its not impossible, trust on your team and play smart. You will not kill Rakan, so pick his ADC.
Very annoying. Stun, stun, stun!
Jhins high damage is good for Pykes combo and ultimate.
Not enough damage in the early game for pykes engages. But if he can poke the enemys low, it can work with ezreal.
If he knows how to play, it is ok. But he hasnt skills with synergy.
I like to play with her. The gap close and the burst helps to kill the enemy bot lane with ultimate.
She is ok, has good engage with R, what helps you. But she cannot root or stun a pulled enemy.
I did not often play with her on botlane, but WHEN, we stomped hard. So i decide this is for Pyke a very good synergy. She can stun on a huge range and you can close up and drive your combo. Maybe try it out with a friend, that likes so play Syndra? gg
Jinx is ok next to Pyke (traps!), but I prefer ADC's with some escape options. Why? because we cannot save her a** so well ;)
No ADC deals so much early damage than this boi. But my experience isn't so great with Dravens I have to say.
Cait has range, a root and good damage. It works very well with her, especially if she knows what shes doin.
Champion Build Guide
I'm Streat, playing League since 2013.
In Season 9 I finally reached Diamond with my OTP Pyke and the following playstyle. Before that, i hang around in plat, playing Akali, Talon, Swain (all pre-rework, coz after they went boring for me), Lux, Teemo or Xerath. You see, I like to play unconventional champs that are out of meta. If you do too, read the following Guide and have fun with my actual fav. champion: Pyke!

You will be behind in level, if you dont get few kills on lane, gank-kills in mid or helping your jungler killing the other jungler (deal with it, its ok!). Because this is what you do! Look at the map, is your jungler in trouble bot-side? Go and help him! Is the enemy Mid pushing deep? Go and kill him with your mid-laner.
The lane has always priority. But in this playstyle you have more focus on jungle, enemy jungle, mid, top and vision than in other playstyles.
Grap the squishys and work with ignite and flash! Against tanks play smart and know who to pull. Look at the map, maybe your jungler needs help in river (scuttle), here u can get ur fist kill and bring your jungler on a good way. Against pushing and strong enemys wait for jungler.
Lane has still priority, but our job is here, to set (pink)-wards and kill enemy wards! Be mobile an quick. You have some options to escape situations. Ward dragon, when u can. Assist ur jungle to kill it. With some success before, u have some items now. Keep going on like before. Help your hole team. Is top in trouble, take a walk there and then back to your adc. You are superfast now.
Update: I recommend to get lvl 11 as fast as you can, because the ultimate has less CD then. So only go top-gank, if it is really a good situation for it.
Look for good situations! Pick squishy guys (you can often solo-kill them), but take care of the enemy team! Thats why vision is so important. If you see 1-2 strong guys anywhere, because u set deep wards, activate Youmous + W, pick some1, hope ur team followed and youre on the way killing one after another.
Update: By having Death'S Dance, you are able to hook Assassins, too and don't have to be scared to get a one-shot!
- Raoming helps Mid, Jungle and Top, too!
- Great vision!
- Bad vision for enemy team!
- You help active to get objevtives
- Fullbuild around 30 Minutes, if it goes well.
- Very, very much fun. You are so fast, mobile and can kill other squischys.
- Tons of gold for you and your team
- often flaming ADC's, because you aren't 24/7 there for them (what helps is the MUTE-button)
- often behind in lvl because of the roam (but that's ok for me)
- very behind, if nothing works at ganking (+if you die, u help other enemy lanes)
If you know the enemy hasn't flash, E to him, flash behind him (he is stunned now), run around him and pick him into your mate(s) -> sure kill.
I personally like to pick the Enemeys on the following way:
I get as close as i can to the enemy (with activated Youmous + Fast Boots and thats why Edge of night ist so important, to not get stunned instantly), now normally i can pull him above me to my team, but if not - I pull him at least to my position and E-AWAY! So I'm safe and he is still stunned. Try it out!
If you ulted an enemy (great job!) and still have the ult up for a next jump, try to find a situation to use it usefull, even u cant get a kill! Use it as a gap-close to an enemy, where a mate assists to kill him.
You killed by a mid-gank the enemy midlaner with your ultimate. Nothing else to do here? Rush down to the botlane, where your adc is surely under tower+trouble. If the situation is good for it, R to the squishiest bot-laner, pull him to your mate and stun him after that. This sounds more complicated than it is, I do this much often. It works well!
Guys, please use the mute-button. Don't conversate too much. A perma-speaking team is a losing team. If you get flamed because you are having a bad game (everyone does) mute the flamer and keep going on. Focus on game, dont get mad.
Communicate IMPORTANT things
Post your team, if an enemy on your lane used summoner spells. It can help alot your ganking friends. It is a good information too, if you're watching an enemy warding. Pick a Key on your keyboard to show your friends where the enemy has vision!
Everyone knows having a losingstreak. From iron to master, no one is secured from that. Take a break, go outside for a walk or watch a film or play other games. Don't let it get you in a bad mood for a longer time. These things happen. Believe in yourself and always give your best. I please you, dont start to troll or have this "I dont care"-mentality. If you control yourself, it will go up again. I promise :)
