Threats & Synergies
Don't get caught by her root, otherwise you'll risk being ulted by her which means you're pretty dead. Also, she's got more range than her, so be carefull and try to attack her once she's used her abilities.
Make sure you stay behind the minions. If you're feeling confident about dodging you can try to trigger his [[Rocket Grab]]. Once he misses it, you could attempt to go harassive against the enemy ADC.
She might have some burst damage, but when she stuns you, make sure to use Whimsy (W) on their ADC to prevent damage. Also, your range is larger than Annie's.
He can heal the damage you deal and can easily roam. However while he roams he's leaving his ADC which might be a good opportunity to attack their ADC. The key to beat Bard is deep warding - you can see where he is and when to attack.
Ouch, try to play as passive as possible. You can only try to shield most of the damage he'll deal to either you or your ADC.
His passive is can annoying, combined with his whole kit, but you should be able to harass him from a somewhat safe distance so that he can't go too hard on you.
She can shield your damage and heal it but that's pretty much it. You should be pretty fine and able to harass almost freely the enemy ADC.
She can be quite strong and her shield plus movement speed are better than your W and E, but her Q's dodgeable and she shouldn't be able to root you.
Leona will be definitely one of your biggest problems. Her root with E double stun (Q+R) will be your death sentence - or your ADC's. Be passive, wait for her E and try to dodge it by anticipating when she'd be using it. Try not to stick too close to your ADC, this way she cannot stun both of you. Then try to use your W onto the enemy ADC to prevent damage.
Since you're reading this guide, you should know more than most people playing Lulu. ;) Also - I prefer playing Draft instead of Blind. :> But you could anticipate her playstyle. Check when she's warding and try to keep her busy with dewarding - meanwhile you can stomp the enemy's ADC.
Watch out for his ult, rest should be easy, especially pre 6.
Not a very frequent choice but try to shield your ADC from his damage and dodge his silence. Keep your ult for the time when he's using his - use the knockup to interrupt it. :)
Don't get caught by her Q. You can use your W on yourself or your ADC to escape the root of her ult.
If used correctly, her W can be quite annoying. Dodge her Q, the rest shouldn't be a bother for you. You can W her ADC while he's buffed or yours is knocked up.
Same as Blitzcrank, really. Don't get caught, but you can harass him enough to prevent his stuns.
That's my number one ban. :D Even if you dodge most or all of his abilities, the enemy ADC will deal enough damage while you're busy dealing with Pyke. And even if you get the enemy ADC, you most likely will get raped by him. >_>
His ult and his knock up can hit you quite hard (and your ADC!) you'll be busy with escaping his knock ups, but once he used it (and hopefully missed it), it's your payback time.
His ult is pretty useful and you should refrain from attacking their towers when he's around. But you should be able to harass him freely. :3
She's an okay opponent. Try to stay out of her Q range, so she's basically wasting mana - especially early she'll have a mana problem - while you're shielding her damage for your ADC. Try to stay away from your ADC so she can't ult both of you.
You should be able to dodge her Q and drain her health slowly while you're harassing her or her ADC.
Not very hard. Make sure you won't get hit by him 3 times because of his passive. But you can harass him a lot. Use deep wards for his ult!
Taric shouldn't be underestimated but you should be able to dodge at least most of his stuns. You can harass him but it won't be as effective as harassing other tanks because he can heal his allies and himself again.
Same as Blitz & Nauti. Don't get caught by his Q. Stay behind the minions and use deep wards so you'll know if he's pretending to use his lantern for ganks or if their jungler is actually around.
Try to not get stunned by his cage. However you can't evade his ult. That's why you should try to keep at least your ADC as healthy as possible so he can survive Veigar's ult. Hard match up though.
Beware of his knock up and consistent damage. His range is way larger than yours, try harass him when it's safe and try to keep either your W or ult for him to interrupt his ult.
His ult combined with his time bombs can be annoying and deal a lot of damage but you can walk around them. But be careful and try only to force fights when it's obvious you're going to win them because he's got more sustain with his ult that you do.
She's not a common support but if you face her, try to dodge her silence because she and her ADC can freely deal tons of damage to you. She's also kind of hard to harass.
Escape her E (root) and try to stomp her seeds.
Your CCs work smoothly together, just make sure to keep her alive.
Caitlyn deals high damage and you should be aware that other people will gank you because they usually fear Cait's damage. Deep warding's the key here. She can even somewhat peel for her own with her Traps (W).
Thankfully, Corki has become a somewhat unusual pick for bot lane. He doesn't really work well with Lulu. His gap closer sometimes feels like a burden while you're running after him and try rescue him. He's more of a mid laner right now which is good because he usually starts fights on his own account and it can be quite hard to follow them.
You've got pretty much all that Draven needs: Protection and peel. He'll clean up the rest. Make sure to polymorph (Whimsy - W) the carries so they can't jump on him.
The match up with him is okay, but I feel that he'd need a support with a stronger CC ult - like Leona's or Braum's or even Fiddle's fear. Although his gap closer won't be much of a problem, I feel that Ezreal needs either highly damaging supports or very tanky ones. Since Lulu is more or less somewhere in between that, I don't consider the synergy as easy to handle and carry.
Quite unusual pick nowadays. Since his rework he's okay. His gap closer won't be hard for you to follow but you'll probably have to use a full combo to keep him alive while he's recharging. Can be a piece of tough work with him.
Tic, tac.. boom? I don't know, really. It's okay to play with Jhin but while he ults it will your task to chase behind the enemies to enable him vision and slow them. That's somewhat risky because you might get ganked or the enemies could just turn onto you.
Pretty classical. Since Jinx basically only waits for a late game, you can help her make that phase come even sooner with your CC.
I'd almost recommend Kai'Sa as ideal synergy with Lulu, however her somewhat long gap closer can also be her death sentence because you might not be able to follow as quickly and she might face an uneven situation all of a sudden.
I'd prefer picking Braum or Leona with Kalista because of their knock ups/stuns. However, Lulu can give Kalista the support she needs because she can enable her movement speed with Whimsy (W) while the enemies might attempt to flee.
He's okay but I think he's stronger with supports who can stun or set up knock ups effectively. Your knock up (ult) should be used to keep your ADC alive and rarely for the knock up itself.
Rare pick for botlane, but I've experienced quite a few nice encounters with Kindred and you both have similar gap closers and you're able to protect one another with your ults. Very nice, actually works quite smoothly.
Because you can extend MF's slow with yours, you can be a huge help setting up her ult. And other ADCs won't be able to easily harm you while you're polymorphing (Whimsy - W) them. ;)
Actually, the synergy would be like 3.5 but I decided for 3 OK, because when she ults you're basically left alone while Quinn can happily gank for example mid lane or the enemy jungler and you're left alone on lane. You can't follow her around. But your kits work out nicely with one another. I mean, blind, damage, silence, knock up and slow. There's not much you'd possibly ask for.
Meh. It's okay, but my personal experience with Sivirs is somewhat sad because she's usually just considered a "safe pick" against whoever and she's usually being picked by autofilled people. HOWEVER! If you come across a good one, you'll notice that lane feels quite easy with her - of course that depends on the match up - but you'll encounter a somewhat safe laning phase.
Her gap closer could be a problem, but I don't really think it would be a huge problem. Since she has her little but powerful bomb. Yordle power. ‹3
He's okay, especially because of his usual Attack Speed build. You can easily shield him (also for extra damage) while you turn the enemy ADC into an adorable critter. You should be able to win most trades mid game.
Your early game power can allow Vayne to catch up faster and become stronger in mid game already instead of late game because you should harass the enemies hard in order to ensure her safe farming. If possible you could even win first trade offs which would allow Vayne to get ahead even more. :)
Well, I love Xayah and when you play with her, it'll pretty much be as if you're her female Rakan because you have very similar CCs and you're able to peel nicely for her.
Twitch and Lulu are a pretty great combo - Lulu can give Twitch additional attack speed with Whimsey (W). Just make sure to NOT cast any spells on him while he's stealthed because you'll give his presence away.
Since Lulu's Whimsey (W) gives attack speed when cast on an ally, Kog'Maw becomes a true carry in late game. Just make sure to get through early game.
