Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths:
+ Obtains both move upgrades and a huge stat boost upon evolving, likely the largest power spike in the game
+ Evolution is not tied to levels, can potential evolve extremely early if things go well and get a very large power spike before anyone else
+ Excellent sustained dps if uptime is maintained on a target
+ Moxie passive resetting cooldowns allows for good snowball potential in teamfights
+ One of the most disruptive and difficult to avoid Unite moves in the game, can win whole teamfights

Weaknesses:
– Magikarp.
– Magikarp one more time.
– The effort gauge being tied to move usage and landing hits can be easily denied and starved by opponents, can delay evolution for very long times
– The game is literally a 4v5 until he evolves, provides zero value before Gyarados
– Relatively kiteable even as Gyarados, only one movement option on a long cooldown
– Shut down very hard by CC, Dragonbreath needs constant uptime to keep basic atking and Aqua Tail is completely shut off and put on cooldown if interrupted
– Magikarp.
