When you mean solo lane, do you mean solo top or solo mid?

All champions can be countered in some way but there are tiers. Assuming you mean top, the better top champions would be Akali, Garen, Irelia, Singed, Yorick(crazy sustain), Rumble, Udyr. Cant think of anymore right now

Edit: Chogath

Forgot to list solo mid ones. The people that usually dominate are Kassadin, and Morgana just because they counter a ton of the casters.

mid is mostly made up of mages right now so ill give you some of those. Malzahar can farm entire waves easily. Sion does the same. Morgana isnt far behind, and has built in spellvamp for sustainability. brand can aoe down the entire wave. each of these also excel at harassing as well. Kassadin is hard to mid but is deadly vs most mages. xerath, zilean, vlad, ap tf, annie etc. primarily mages and assassins as well.

top. most of the beef characters and fighters can top. trundle, cho gath, riven, galo, garen, irelia, jarvan, warwick, jax, etc etc etc its mostly melee fighters. you also see assassins top as well. talon, akali as notable examples.

edit: on what pew pew said just to add singed and udyr are also strong tops.

He's not asking if you meant any solo lane, he's asking which one in particular, because certain champs excel at mid while others will do better at top.

Do you want to solo mid, OR do you want to solo top? There are a few champions that safely do both consistently, such as Kennen and Swain, but a lot of people prefer to have high-sustain champions top (both bruisers and bulkier casters) and keep their mages mid.

Skarner is a pretty good solo top champion, I got him in a sale a few weeks ago, he's got good sustain with his E and the recent buffs help a lot as well, and his ulti helps in teamfights

I've heard Skarner is a pretty mean jungler, and I can imagine so; his kit seems almost perfect for jungling, all he needs is a tad more single target for red/blue.

Solo top... he really lacks range (I've noticed the same problem on solo bot domi), which won't be a problem against a lot of melee champs, but he lacks any sort of gap closer or ranged cc (or even harass) to keep himself in the lane against longer range champs; he'll just get dominated if the enemy knows he's going top.

There are certain champs that are great for beginners in my opinion because they have smaller learning curves. For solo mid champs I suggest Annie (AP) and Ashe (AD). Solo top champs I suggest tankier champs such as Chogath (AP) and Nasus (AD). Remember you will need to farm up Nasus Q by last hitting creeps. This is a great way to force new players to learn to last hit and make it really pay off in the end. Let me know if you want me to elaborate on any of these champs I mentioned and I will be happy to give you my tips.

Ashe is a fairly weak solo mid.

Maybe Tristana > Ashe then...I remember when I first starting playing LoL I played Ashe mid almost every game and had a lot of success and won most of my games. Plus the early arrow from solo'ing mid can be deadly. But that is just my opinion. Do you have a better option Twist or do you just want to state ambiguous things like "Ashe is a fairly weak solo mid" which doesn't really help the OP with his initial question.
