Nintendo said that not all Wii games were backwards compatible with the Wii U. Is there a list of those particular games I can find somewhere?

Well, any Wii game that only uses a GameCube controller and not the Classic Controller (Pro), and I don't know any.

I think this is accurate. So very few, I'm guessing.

There were wireless dance pads for the Wii, are they not compatable with the Wii U?

Not a single Wii game is backwards compatible with the Wii U.
It's like my Rattata is in the top percentage of Rattata.

Depends, how did they connect? If a pad needs a receiver plugged into a GCN port, then it wouldn't work with the Wii U. However, if it plugged into the remote itself, or was somehow able to act like a remote+Classic Controller all in one, it might.
