In my opinion, i'm sort of leaning with WiiAssasin concerning lucario. I'd just assume they would replace lucario, just like mewtwo, with a popular pokemon from the latest generation (which i'm guessing would be gen 5). so i'm guessing they would replace lucario with possibly zoroark. though we'll never know for sure until they announce it
For those who are wondering:
I would not mind Toon Link, Ice Climbers, or Pokémon Trainer
Toon Link is the closest thing to a clone in Brawl. We already have Link and I wouldn't mind having only Link if he is good as Toon Link is now.
I want all characters in the next Smash but if I hated one and would want one to be removed it would be Ice Climbers. Master Ice Climbers is a kill joy.
If Pokémon Trainer were removed that would mean 3 other characters or less will take it's place. Remove this one it gives you more time for the rest.
As a competitive Smasher I would not want Falco to leave, but I would rather have Falco go then Wolf. But I don't want any of the Star Fox characters to leave or any character for that matter even the ones that are already gone.
I am in denial of any and all possibility for Wolf leaving, and no one can convince me otherwise.
Speakin' of, we won't be gettin' a Gen 5 Poke in SSB4. Not as an individual character. We're almost assuredly gettin' a 'mon from Gen 6... or Mewtwo.
I think if we get one new Pokemon rep it'll almost certainly be from Gen VI, but I'm not sure how likely it is that we'll get two.
That's a given. Its time for newer pokemon.

I don't know what I'd do without my main. ;_; Well, I'd obviously main a Fire Emblem character... ... ... besides the point.
I don't think they'd take out Wolf. Or at least, it's very unlikely. I feel a handful of characters would be taken out first, so I s'pose the possibility is there if Sakurai is very desperate for time and "needs" to remove a surprisingly large amount of the roster.
