I have a large JSON file which produces 300,000+ lines of data in an Excel file. Unfortunately, using VBA to clean up the data to how I've got it formatted in the link provided appears to take too long. I can share my VBA coding if someone is willing to see if they provide efficiencies there. Otherwise, I was turning my attention to Power Query to pull the data from the web page containing the JSON directly. My issue is that I have no been able to figure out to get the data to show all the details similar to that of in the link as well. For the sake of making things easier this data set can be used to imitate the spreadsheet I'm providing as well.

https://www.smogon.com/stats/2020-11-H1/chaos/gen3ou-0.json - Sample data.

https://www.smogon.com/stats/2020-11-H1/chaos/gen8vgc2021-1760.json - Data I'm truly wanting to use, but follows basically the same format of that of the sample data.

Porygon-Z 1760+ Usage - Google Sheet showing off how I want the data to be imported into Excel after pulling the JSON with Power Query.

Once the data gets to the formatting like in the Google Sheet, I was going to create VBA to do what I want with the data from there. I just need help finding a way to gather the LARGE amount of data from the 2nd JSON file to import into an Excel file.

Tiny charts, called Sparklines, were added to Excel 2010. Look for Sparklines on the Insert tab.
