With the very fast release of Awoken Pandora and finally the release of Bankai Pandora in NA, players now have a tough decision to make: which evolution do I do? This is perhaps the first time we actually need to weigh the pros and cons of an evolution tree as most have been quite straight forward as one was always the outright winner. However, each Pandora has their own pros and cons and I wish to analyse their roles as to better help you decide which evolution is right for you. If you are fortunate enough to have 2 Pandora, you should make one of each evolution as to benefit from the best of both worlds.
is vastly superior in leadership potential as she offers the same damage, but with less orb restriction and gives a significant health and recovery boost. For more reading on Awoken Pandora team building, feel free to check out my full guide HERE. Furthermore, dark row devils are common so you should have flexibility in team building. In addition, she matches nicely on Awoken Lucifer teams as the extra row adds modest damage. is the stronger sub in most cases as she has better base stats, an extra time extend , and new two prong attack awakening. This fits well with the match 5 orbs/1 enhanced (5o1e) teams as it can be cumbersome to match a row over a TPA. can also work as an outstanding sub on teams as has much higher recovery and more utility in awakenings, but has no haste which may diminish her value because your team can be somewhat of a system due to your 2 leaders having haste.
Hopefully this chart helps you decide which evolution is best for you and let me know which path you chose. If you prefer watching a video, feel free to watch Ragnarok’s commentary and video depicting the pros and cons of both Pandora:
