Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths:
+ Gets its first power spike at level 4 instead of level 5 unlike the rest of the speedsters, allowing you to pressure lane more effectively should you choose to go lane or go for a level 4 gank.
+ Solar Blade is absolutely massive burst damage that has its own means of CD reduction that can sometimes enable Leafeon to get off two Solar Blades in a short amount of time.
+ Solar Blade has great range that enables a more ranged attacker-esque playstyle that can easily flex into an assassination as needed. Combine that with the huge burst damage and you got a move that can be a very strong way of secure bullying lanes.
+ Razor Leaf razor leaf is also no slouch for burst damage at closer ranges, and the recast gives you a unique means of putting on more burst damage while still moving around.
+ Decent early game options. Swift is decent secure and quick attack gives you some mobility to help you stack effectively.
+ Very short ult cooldown which does good burst damage. It is sure hit and unstoppable, great for diving and blowing up a squishy backliner or punishing enemies that are hard grouped up. Eevee leveling curve also gives you this powerful tool at level 8.

Weaknesses:
– Squishy with little to show for in terms of self sustain options.
– No hard CC on any moves and not much to show for sustain either other than hitting all of Razor Leaf for a shield. This exacerbates Leafeon’s frailty.
– Struggles against tankier setups without having a level lead.
