greninja,palutena,lucina,rosalina,and charizard

all of those were unveiled after e3 2013.

also characters like tails,vaati,krystal and dixie have a really high chance so does toadette(as part of toad*)
not a single deconfirmation (again *)

*toad+toadette could be a toon link like scenario.
charizard started out as a pokeball pokemon so what makes you think other pokeball pokemon can't also get promoted?

Jirachi is likely NOT a pokeball pokemon anymore because stickers are gone.

my wishlist contains MANY characters that are even MORE unlikely then wft.

And Caw, if the initial post (in a forum, not even something he had to brand on his page) said "some guy sent me this so here are my unlikely predictions," I'd be totally cool with it. But the sudden change of tune on wild predictions coming true combined with the stream of misinformation since then is more than coincidental.

It wasn't sudden. Sal never posted anonymous rumors on his site before, which is why he masked them as “predictions” in his NeoGAF post. The reveal of Wii Fit Trainer is what prompted him to take the info seriously and formally share it on his site.

What is the point in masking? The thread was unlikely predictions. Zero credibility on the line for him or his site.

"Someone randomly sent me these characters, so they're my unlikely picks." Why hide that information initially and only reveal it as a leaker's information after everyone said "HOLY CRAP HOW DID YOU GET THAT?!"

Why safe picks from that moment onward? And before you say Shulk/CK aren't safe, literally anything is safe as long as it's not confirmed as an assist or other non-playable asset. If he had said Duck Hunt Dog everybody would be on board with that nonsense all the way until release.

Why would the 'leaker' give a 100% guarantee that the trailer was Shulk's reveal (as all of us thought it was from the tweet) if he's working on continuing information? If he's working on outdated information, why the name change from Mii to Mii Fighter?

There are far too many holes for this to be a legit leaker so that if you take a step back and look at everything past the unlikely WFT (posted in an unlikely picks thread as Sal's unlikely pick) it falls to shambles.

I predict the pokemon jirachi will be playable.
and if I'm proven wrong I just say my info is outdated!

Hey, that's like this situation! With the exception of the difference in how many were correct, the unlikelihood of multiple newcomers, and the status of the person releasing the leaks!

I predicted greninja that's a 1 in 72 chance

Bad faith estimate. Greninja was not a 1 in 72 chance because the majority of X/Y Pokémon weren't going to be competitive with Greninja, including ones like Frogadier.
Couple o' YouTube channels.
