Is Kayle better when played alongside Kennen?

There is no top champion pairing for Kayle that will always be her best synergy. Yet, overall, Kennen is a very bad teammate for Kayle. By being on the same side as Kayle, he decreases their win rate by -9.6% to 40.0%. This clearly indicates that there is an easy to overcome and exploit bond between Kayle and Kennen that allows them to perform not as well together than alone.

Kennen has a much lower diffuclty than Kayle. That means Kayle players don't need to be cautious when lining up Kennen comrades to fight alongside, as they will require a much lower level of skill to cooperate well with you.

When playing on the same side, Kayle players will likely observe an overall large increase in your team’s capability to deal magic damage. When paired, these two can deal quite a lot of AP type damage.

In contrast, by grouping Kayle and Kennen together, you probably will not be giving your team a lot of protection for burst damage. Plan to bring other champs on your team that offsets this relative hole in this pairing's abilities.

Regardless of your Kennen ally's skill level, you should focus on maximizing your gold income, outlasting your enemies, and clearing objectives. If you heed this simple advice, you should do well, regardless.
