    During Season 2 of the Pokkén Arena North American Power Rankings I have been keeping track of the support and character from the qualifying tournaments. This is a breakdown of all the data, To help make it more digestible it has broken up into multiple parts using the spoiler tag. Each tag is there own separate category to help things easier to follow.

    For this update PA:NA 2.2 Tournaments have been added to the data pool. This includes top cut support data as well as character data. 2.3 Tournaments will be updated once data has been gathered. NEC 2019 will not be included in this breakdown since there is no information or data for the tournament. It is the only tournament to not be included at this point in time.
