Why is he listed as support? The only reason I could think of is map control from the shrooms, but is there anything else that would even make him close to a support?

Shrooms, and a blind

Morello says this is a mistake, yet I've heard other Red's like Shurelia refer to him as support.

I think there's a disconnect (not surprisingly) about what role Teemo fulfills, and this has propagated through the player base as well.

If blind is going to be support, then blitzcrank should've BEEN support for the pull knock up silence, tons of CC.

Well, what are the options?

Assassin? I think that could fit, he's good jumping out of stealth, or TPing to mushrooms, and can definitely screw with most champs 1v1. Plus he can get in and out of engagements pretty effectively with move quick and good mushroom placements. He's not really that bursty (AP teemo using blinding dart doesn't count), which most assassins are.

Carry? He does autoattack a lot, but he's usually stacking up a ton of magic damage in there with poison and malady and bloodrazor (if you build that way). He's not usually played as a typical AD stacking champ, and no steroids, so he's not really a carry, but he can sort of play that role if you're desperate.

Bruiser? No.

Mage? I don't think you can say one nuke and mushrooms make AP Teemo a mage.

Tank? No.

Support? Shrooms give vision, help teammates get kills or escape. Blinding dart blinds. So he definitely does have a support aspect.

So I guess I'd consider him a sort of assassin/support hybrid.
