The only Pyke mid guide you will ever need

About me
My twitch, so you can learn from my gameplay if I'm streaming and ask me questions live (I will always answer you.

I am a diamond 2 EUW Pyke main, with 1.5mil mastery. I have been ranked top 2 on Pyke on LeagueOfGraphs and overall am really good on Pyke.
Why pyke mid?
Why Pyke mid? Didn't it get gutted like 7 times?

Pyke mid will never die, simply because of his godlike roams and gold sharing. He really stomps soloq in every elo if you're good at him, carry potential if you don't go late-game.
What to do in lane?
You're really strong in early-mid game so laning can be really great for you.

lvl 1 unlock Q and kill the first 3 minions. Try to walk past the minions and land a Q onto enemy and do HoB. That should be about 50% of their HP. lvl 2 you can get E and get flash or kill, depending on how you play.

lvl 1 unlock E and E over enemy when they come to CS and do HoB. Lvl 2 you can do E flash Q HoB to get first blood (remember to use flash as late as possible, giving enemy no time to counter flash.)
When do I roam?
You should roam after you rushed mobis. Make sure the lane is roamable (your team isn't pushing in). Ask your team to ping enemy summs so you know that they wont flash away from your combo.

When you have mobis and stridebreaker, you should push wave into enemy tower before roaming like a normal midlaner, but you can't do that without stridebreaker.

A pro tip is to take lens during roaming and start lensing in river so you can see that nobody sees you roaming.
Why stridebreaker and not duskblade or prowlers?
Because Pyke has 0 waveclear, and waveclear is really important in SoloQ. You can use stride to depush waves from your turrets and stridebreaker is really great for dps, gives you the feeling of old tiamat.
Early game
You are really strong early. Look for picks in top/mid/bot and be sure to help your jg if he needs help.
Mid game
Look to push waves in with stridebreaker and look for roams to top/bot. Be sure to be there for drakes as you're really strong in a mid-game fiesta.
Late game
I'm sorry if you have made it past 40 minutes. You have fallen off and you're only useful with your ult. Stay back and wait for your team to do damage (it sucks, I know).
Combos, tricks, tips
Q FLASH not FLASH Q, it gives enemies no time to react.
E flash not FLASH E, makes your E bigger.

E enemy before ulting to secure the ult

Make a bit of extra damage before ulting if enemy has heal, then they can't cuck your ult.
Be aggressive, help your team, roam, win. Don't get into late-game, E before ulting if possible.

Ping enemy summs in chat so you can see when they come up (flash cd is 5 mins so if orianna flashes on 14:31, her flash is up 19:31).

Good luck!
