List focuses specifically on which fighters will be good in the long term

We're now a month into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's life and, now standing on hours and hours of experience in both friendly and tournament settings, TSM|Leffen has put together his first month tier list.

This comes just after Leffen's first Ultimate major as he attended Valhalla II last weekend and reached the top eight bracket.

We'll start by noting that Leffen chooses not to list any of the characters that he thinks are particularly bad, which is why characters like Wii Fit Trainer and Mr. Game and Watch aren't on the list.

There's plenty of reorganizing from Leffen's previous thoughts and opinions on the still brand new Smash title, and he notes that this current list is more about which characters will be good in the long term as opposed to who is good during Ultimate's infancy when players are at their greenest.

The Swedish player also mentions that he has decided to start putting time into Peach instead of Pokemon Trainer, which is interesting considering he wound up losing to a Peach player Meru (4th overall) at Valhalla II.
