Pokémon Trainer had 8 players make Top 64 while a pair of Little Macs also showed up: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate character usage at Low Tier City 7

Finals Day over at Low Tier City 7 may have already started up, but it's still going to be a few hours until we see the main event Super Smash Bros. Ultimate close things out in Texas with a bang.

There were almost 700 players who came out to compete in the big event, and we've gathered the character usage statistics of the top 64 including a surprising amount of Pokémon Trainers and zero Pichus or Wolf.

Pokémon Trainer was by far the favorite by strong players this weekend with eight players in total taking the trio fighter to the upper brackets including TSM|Tweek and Pandarian sitting in top 8 — though they are the only repeating characters for finals day here.

Snake continues his strong push in the Smash Ultimate scene with four players making it far including WBG|MVD though Yoshi actually continues to grow in popularity overall. Meanwhile, Little Mac, who is generally considered one of the worst if not the worst character in the game from a competitive standpoint, actually had two players grace the top 64.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Pichu and Wolf didn't really have any presence past pools after being two of the most dominant characters at big events for months on end — are their nerfs catching up with them?

In total there were 36 different characters represented in the top 64 which is a decent spread though that does leave 39 that didn't see much or any action at all. Given the large amount of entrants, each player who made it to top 64 had to go at least 4-2 or 5-2 in their brackets. You can check out the full breakdown below.
