In the February 17th Nintendo Direct, Pyra was announced as the next DLC character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, releasing sometime in March. Pyra has the ability to switch between herself and Mythra, with both characters having their own unique moveset. To see these characters' moveset breakdown and release date information, check out our Pyra / Mythra guide!
In the in-depth look at the character from Mr. Sakurai on March 4th (6:00 a.m. PT / 9:00 a.m. ET), it was revealed that Pyra and Mythra will be released later today. If you are reading this currently, the character will be available very soon, assuming you have already purchased the Fighter's Pass Vol. 2!
If the update timing is the same as usual, we can expect them to be added into the game at 5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET later today!
As stated above, Challenger Pack 9 will consist of Pyra / Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 as a duel character, coming March 4th. After their release, we still have two more DLC characters to look forward to sometime this year.
At this point there is no official word on who the final two DLC characters added to the Smash Ultimate roster will be, although there have been some rumors. One rumored leak claims that the next DLC characters will be a character from the Tales of Symphonia series, as well as Street Fighter Chun-Li will be joining the roster, although there is zero evidence confirming this to be true as of yet.
Fan favorites Sora (Kingdom Hearts), Dante (Devil May Cry), and Master Chief (Halo), and Ryu Hayabusa (Ninja Gaiden) have all seen a lot of support from the fanbase for getting added into the game's roster, although the aforementioned leaked source claims that Sora has been de-confirmed (again, this evidence is not conclusive, and could be false). While Nintendo or Sakurai himself have not given any clues toward the next DLC character, the makers of Master Chief and Ryu Hayabusa appear to be fully in favor of having their characters added in, should they be given the opportunity.
Let us know here who you think the next DLC Fighter will be by voting! If there is another character not mentioned here, please let us know in the comments who you want to see to have them added in.
With Sephiroth's release, there are still 3 characters remaining for Smash Ultimate's Fighter Pass 2 DLC. While originally it was thought that Smash Ultimate's DLC would end with the first 5 characters from Fighters Pass 1, Fighters Pass Vol 2 brings in six new challengers

Depends on who it is you struggle against. I'd say generally someone like Wolf or Palu is a good secondary for any character. Byleth's largest drawback is mobility and frame data, so a character with faster options and movement is your best bet.
