For you, Wiiassassin
Krystal has my vote. I'll just leave this here. My reasoning for predicting Krystal:
I've always considered Krystal a legitimate choice. She's not K Rool, but she is Popular, she could be a last minute clone, or completely unique, and she's both prominent and important enough. Plus Sakurai does like the series, and although I'm grasping at straws right meow, we did get THIS in Brawl:
Peppy: That gives me itching for some action. I want in!
Slippy: No way! Old-timers like you ride the bench. This fight's mine!
Krystal: What are you two thinking? I'm the only one who can come through in a fight like this!!
SO, at the very least, we know Sakurai sees her fighting prowess. Combine all of this together, and we have a legitimate contender. It's really just a matter of IF she'll be chosen this time.A member of the Star Fox team welcomed in Star Fox Adventures after the team met her on planet Sauria when responding to a distress signal. Krystal is capable of telepathy and is a valuable member in combat. After becoming romantically involved with Fox, their relationship gets very rocky in Star Fox Command.
Also best paired with Sakurai's character criteria (From him)
And, let's not forget Retro's new title is heavily been hinted to be SF.- The character's inclusion must make people want to buy the game.
- The character must be unique
- The character must fit into the style of Super Smash Bros.
- They must contribute to the game balance.
And originating in a video game and being on a Nintendo system
Also, she's constatly in the top 12 choices on my polls (Since 2010). She's usually within the top seven, but recently has lowered to moving between top 8 - 12. Still, she's one of the most requested newcomers period.

The first part can realistically be interpreted as part of the characters personality. Heck, we can even argue Slippy has a great chance of getting in based on it.
For the second part: Really, all I got out of it is furry fuel. Combat oriented describes most of the Starfox Crew, and is not exclusive. Telepathy ain't exactly a factor considered in fighters.
It's just popularity and whether it's enough.
Sakurai is the one who writes the trophy descriptions, silly. So, he knows she can fight. Which is one of his rules. And I hope you're not going to be blinded by furry. It's such a tired argument against Krystal.
If Sakurai saw hate base / unworthy fanbases in any characters, we wouldn't have had the likes of Lyn, Krystal, Waluigi, and Tingle all appear in Brawl.
So, she can fight, Sakurai knows this. She was extremely popular back when he polled the Smash community Pre-Brawl, so Sakurai knows her popularity as well. She no longer has any competition from her series like she did Pre-Brawl. (The Krystal v Wolf scene was pretty horrific)
This is her optimal time to be included. She got it all really, it's just a matter of whether or not Sakurai chooses to include her. Which, I'm betting he will.
Also, yeah most of the SF crew can fight, but no one is left that is as popular as Krystal. None of them really get near her. Most characters don't get near her status of popularity on my polls either. Sakurai described Slippy as a "A top-notch mechanic with less- than-stellar battle skills." in Brawl.
