It is something I've always been a bit confused about!

With only one AD scaling ability, does not mean that other ADC's are more viable than him? (Clearly something is worth it with him seen as professional players have used ADC Kennen in the past), but also with all of his abilities having an AP scaling, does it not make AP Kennen a much better choice?

Hoping that someone can explain it to me! xD

you're not wrong, but sometimes people will play him 'just cause'

i'd agree he isnt the most optimal choice however

This is what I don't understand, the professionals surely don't play him as ADC 'just cause' - they will always take the most powerful choices. This is what confused me. >_<

AD Kennen top is a lane bully and can match other top laners in duels. Also has CC. ADC Kennen is a Rekkles pick that worked against bad regions (EU).

Because AP items are trash and AD items aren't

because he has a self AOE engage/peel which is pretty much unique among all adcs, and can stun people by himself. ashe is the only other adc with a stun i believe. and since he does magic damage he can do mixed damage like corki. he's also extremely mobile with his little lightning dash thing and is pretty safe overall and really good at kiting. and of course he is essentially resourceless.

but sure the downside is he probably doesnt scale as well as standard adcs so you probably need another physical damage dealer elsewhere.
