Update: PG|ESAM has released a video that details why he placed each character the way he did in his 2.0.0 tier list. You can check the video out after the jump.

Earlier: With Genesis 6 out of the way, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate events will be using the 2.0.0 version until the next patch is released. There will notably be some minor shifts here and there in the overall meta.

PG|ESAM has recently released a tier list for version 2.0.0 of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate during one of his Twitch streams. It doesn't appear as though all of the characters in each category are arranged in any particular order.

At the very top of the list, sitting in the "super top tier" category, we see Peach (and Daisy), Pikachu, Olimar, Lucina (not Marth), Snake, Pichu, and Wolf as candidates for strongest characters in the game.

Most notably, there are only a handful of fighters that ESAM looks at as "bad characters" in the low tier category. They are King K. Rool, Robin, Little Mac, Kirby, Sheik, Zelda, Ryu, Isabelle, Ken, Bowser Jr., and Mii Brawler.

ESAM also discussed Pikachu's match ups in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It appears that Pikachu's only losing match ups are against Olimar and potentially Ness.

More than likely, ESAM will release a video that goes into great detail about character positions and match ups. In the meantime, here's what ESAM showed during his Twitch stream:
