It hasn't even been a full week since Byleth was released as the final challenger for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Fighters Pass (six more characters coming via Fighters Pass Volume 2). Initial impressions from most players seem to indicate that Byleth might not be the most viable character choice for tournaments.

Despite this, VGBC|Pink Fresh was recently able to win Just Tryna Smash's weekly known as "The Grind" — an event that caters to the mid level players of the MDVA region — using just Byleth. Other notable players that were present at the event included ZD and GG|Seagull Joe.

Studying Pink Fresh's performance with Byleth might help improve one's own game with the latest Fire Emblem rep. Luckily for us, VGBootCamp has uploaded footage of Pink Fresh's Byleth in action.

During the course of the tournament, Pink Fresh saw himself going up against Seagull Joe's Palutena and Young Link, as well as ZD's Wolf and Fox. Needless to say, he ended up meeting ZD in the grand finals from the winners side.

Inevitably, the grand finals ended up being very close. ZD would ultimately secure the reset against Pink Fresh. The second set ended up being really coming down to the last hit too.

Throughout the matches, Pink Fresh was really able to showcase the "Distance Demon" title that was given to Byleth during their initial reveal.
