I think it's less that and more not every potential buyer follows the updates religiously. People miss stuff all the time.
It's not like these trailers exist for a day and then get erased forever from the internet though, everyone else should have to slog through the same boring information over and over because some people don't watch all of the trailers.

Holy crap guys, I just realized...

It's Lief Erikson day!!!
He and Christopher Columbus takes the credit of finding the Americas but really its the indigenous people who found it first. Shouldn't they get the credit? ;P

If anything its Indigenous People Day.

So Ponyta is Psychic? Not even Fairy/Psychic but pure Psychic? That sure seems odd, based on its design. I guess that also means we won't be getting a Fairy/Flying Pegasus or Fairy/Water Kelpie evolution. Kind of a bummer.
What a pretty pretty pony.

But it does kill the 4chan rumor.that stated Galarian Ponyta is Fairy type.
Which one exactly?

Eh, thanks for asking, but you really don't need to pay any attention to me. I'm not actively playing or anything.

How is Galarian Ponyta a Psychic-Type? Everything about that design screams Fairy. Maybe it'll gain that typing once it evolves.

Whatever time is good for me, usually. We could start a chat, sure.

If it’s discord, though, I’ll need to make an account real quick in a bit.

I feel like it may get a new type when evolving.

But I suppose a psychic unicorn (literally MLP) is pretty cool. Best believe my Ponyta will be named Celestia if I get Shield.

I’ve kept this in for a while now but you must be the coolest teacher.
It's kinda funny how I only recently found out a little bit back that Jones is a teacher. Then again, I haven't been a board member for that long. How much convincing do I have to do for you to change your avatar to Byleth? You must relate to them a lot more than Edelgard!

I don't think there's anyone who I could say is 100% disconfirmed post-Fighter Pass, but DLC Spirits come closest. I'm sorry, but I think these characters wouldn't have been added as Spirits if Sakurai had bigger plans for them. He probably would've saved their Spirit for when they became a character.

Next would be DLC Mii Fighter costumes, which I don't think are as telling as DLC Spirits, but still pretty bad for a character's chances. Why make the costume if they're gonna be playable anyway?

Next in line are ATs, which I'm not really sure where I stand on. It's possible Sakurai could add them since the second wave wasn't planned before launch, but then again, they have pretty significant roles already. It hasn't happened before, which makes it a lot harder to say it's still possible without being influenced by a bias.

After that, I think everything else is fair game. Stage cameos and base game Spirits should be fine.
Little late but I agree with this 100%. Final Smash cameos (Kumatora, Mecha-Fiora, Bass etc) should be fine too thanks to Chrom

I figure to end my year with a bang for movies this year I'd make an attempt of an double feature of Gemini Man and Joker.

With the latter after some long thought and consideration I figure I just might give the movie a look.

I was against it at first due to Joker's origin better off being a mystery but as someone said a while back to just think of it as an Elseworld story. This being not the Joker we all know.

Which seems so weird, how did they guess that specifically the Ponyta line would get a Galarian form AND that it would be a unicorn? (I know the leak didn't explicitly say it was a unicorn, but the Alicorn part implies it)
A unicorn Ponyta has been a popular regional form idea since SM first revealed Alolan Vulpix, it's possible that they took a swing with a popular fan idea and ended up getting a hit, but not the full swing since GF threw a curveball and made it Psychic.

As for the reveal, my biggest surprise is that it wasn't followed by Galarian Rapidash or Impidimp, the former was implied in the livestream due to the cries and the latter messed with it the whole time to the point that people joke about it all the time, so you think they would've revealed them today. Instead we're still being kept in the dark about both and Impidimp in particular goes back into hiding as it did four months ago. I guess they were trying to keep reveal parity with the Sword exclusive Sirfetch'd since it was a lone reveal as well, but it's still odd that they'd go through the trouble of hinting at both and not indicating when we'll see them properly revealed.

On a similar note, regarding people who think an Undertale rep is still possible: Why wouldn't they wait for Frisk or whoever to be released to give us the Sans costume and Megalovania remix?
