This is contrasting evidence that he is worse when playing synergisticly with Garen.

Is Corki better when played alongside Garen?

There is no top ally for Corki that will always be his #1 teammate. Yet, overall, Garen is a very typical ally for Corki. By being on the same team as Corki, he lowers their win rate by -1.0% to 45.3%. This demonstrates that there is a weak bond between Corki and Garen that allows them to perform not as well together than without each other.

Garen has a lower difficulty than Corki. That means Corki players don't need to be careful when enlisting Garen allies to fight alongside, as they will have to have a lower level of skill to work well with you.

Playing alongside, you should see an overall large increase in your team’s capability to deal physical damage. Combined, these two can tear through the other team with a lot of physcial damage.

In contrast, by grouping Corki and Garen together, you may not be granting your team very much utility. Plan to pick other champs on your team that neutralizes this relative gap in this pairing's kit.

Regardless of the skill of your Garen teammate, you should focus on increasing your gold income, outlasting your enemies, and clearing objectives. If you heed this simple advice, you should do well anyway.
