My two Euro-cents
Even if Devilot and Akuma have a very similar pattern, play both of them and you'll surely notice that the best counter gem pattern of the entire Puzzle Fighter is Devilot's one, due to the way the pattern's diagonal runs (from upper left to lower right) because thanks to that way is more difficult to the opponent to setup against. Anyway, the kind of pattern both Devilot and Akuma have is clearly the best beacuse it does not offer a single disadvantage: no power gems yielded, no runs or towers left, no nothing! The price Devilot's and Akuma's players have to pay for this unique pattern is that all the attacks they do using crash gems are worth only from 1/2 to 2/3 the value they would be for the other fighters. Also, this means that even the value of a defense against an opponent's attack is halved or reduced to 2/3 of the original, but luckily the damage coming from attacks using a diamond gem is not modified in any way.
Despite of this drawback, I think Devilot is a playable charachter, even more than Akuma, meaning she is not useless and that you can win a consistent number of games using her. The lack of any advantage for the opponent in her counter gem pattern lets you make small attacks without the fear to help your opponent in building a setup, but with the confidence you'll usually mess it up instead. More, you have to learn how to effectively use chains, and how to exploit every single advantage the opponent's counter gem pattern let you take. The last requirment is patience: since the drawback, playing Devilot means often to engage a long battle, and patience and hard work only can lead you to the final victory.
