In Super Smash Bros. 4
Pit is currently placed in the A tier in Super Smash Bros. 4. By all accounts, Pit is a balanced fighter. He has no gimmicks or special traits; he is simply an honest, legitimate character: the jack of all trades and master of none. He has a solid set of smash attacks with a relatively powerful forward smash that strikes twice; he also boasts good normals. Pit’s recovery potential is very high, and he can even gimp opponents with Palutena’s Bow.
However, Pit is somewhat outclassed by several higher-ranked characters. Whereas Bowser and Ganondorf can win entire games using only Flying Slam and Flame Choke, Pit has no such advantage and must be trained proficiently in his entire moveset to stand a chance. Pit’s AI also tends to overuse its aerials, self-destruct with side special, and use its up special randomly.
Overall, Pit has accrued above average tournament results and representation. FarmingSim, Supernova, Cloud, and Glenn are all known to have trained the character and found moderate to high success in doing so.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Pit was considerably buffed for his appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. As with all fighters, Pit’s mobility has been increased. Many of his KO options have had their power strengthened, allowing him to more easily close stocks against damaged opponents. Palutena’s Bow and Guardian Orbitars have also been sped up.
Pit received very little in terms of nerfs; in fact, his only true nerfs are a slower grab and a slightly more unreliable recovery. As a result, Pit is considered to have improved from his Smash 4 iteration.
Overall, Pit has accrued fantastic tournament results and representation. Dreamy Jay, Cucco-Master, Leaf, and Blank have all trained Pit and found success with him, ensuring his spot as a high-tier character.
