Did Zoroark's chances got reduced?

After Gen VI got announced, i don't see Gen V taking the lead spot anymore. Well MAYBE if there won't be another Lucario-type Pokemon in Gen VI, then maybe Zoroark still can appear.

I really wish the fox made it in though.

No since his chances never should have been considered high in the first place since 6th gen getting here before this game's release was essentially guaranteed.

Why shouldn't they be considered high? He's a Pokemon that fits for SSB's type of battle.

Zoroark's chances are dead in the water at this point.

His fan base (at least for Smash) has collapsed significantly (especially when taking into account that a lot of people expected but not wanted him), he's not as important as Lucario or Mewtwo now and I don't see the Pokémon Company nor Sakurai taking interest in him. 5th gen missed it's chance to get a playable character.

He never had a chance to begin with.

After Zoroark failed to create hype for gen 5, Gamefreak replaced him with Lucario again to promote other gen 5 games & gen 5 related merchandise

Smash bros wise,most of his support was only based on the "Lucario replaced Mewtwo Pattern, so it will happen again". However Mewtwo by far is the most wanted pokemon rep & compared to him Zoroark is nobody

>Implying that low chances can't get lower.

I'm agreeing with you though, Zoroark's chances were never high to begin with; it was more of an expectation in the absence of a more suitable new rep. With what The Pokemon Company is doing with Mewtwo though, Zoroark's chances have decreased significantly, and Mewtwo's have increased, with Lucario's chances of staying about the same as they've always been (IMO, very good).

Mewtwo's new form is essentially the Lucario archetype of 6th gen.

This.

If Zoroark had succeeded at becoming the next Lucario, then it would have a chance, but it failed, so it doesn't.

"Newtwo" for SSB!

His chances are dead & buried. They just kept getting lower--hell, Lucario's chances of sticking around were better--and then the Awakened Form pretty much destroyed whatever still chance he had x_x
