Pros/Cons
Saigo Takamori has a very high amount of base Attack. When his Attack is hypermaxed, it exceeds 36,000 in his evolved form and exceeds 32,000 in his ascended form. Saigo's Gauge Shot is very nice, which gives him the Light Attribute Slayer ability and combined with his Darkness attribute it gives him insane damage against Light attribute monsters. Also, since Saigo is a Samurai type monster encountering a boss that has a Samurai Slayer ability is very rare so it should not be a problem taking him into most dungeons as opposed to Deity type monsters.
Saigo's Speed is very low, which is normal for a monster that has such high attack. However, his Bump Combo and Strike Shots are not the best. His Strike Shot requires him to bounce against the wall multiple times to increase the damage done which is not very compatible with the amount of Speed he has. His Bump Combo doesn't deal a lot of damage even though he has both the Cross Laser L and S in his ascended form.
Summary
Overall, if you have Saigo you want to ascend him instead of evolving him. Even though you gain a lot more Attack when you evolve him, the fact that you gain the Gauge Shot which gives you the Light Slayer ability in his ascended form makes up for it. You may have struggles with the low amount of Speed and the low damage of his Bump Combos but Saigo can be a very hard hitter.
