One piece of evidence I've seen in Poochy's favor is that the Wooly World stage was cut. It had no real reason to be cut, but if they thought it would be too similar to a Crafty World stage, it would make sense.
I initially thought it was cut due to the stage morph function, but after taking another look at footage from the stage, I don't really see that counterargument holding water anymore I also wonder why it was cut. And as you said, similarities to a potential crafted world stage could be their reason. After all, a stage based of Kirby's Epic Yarn was planned until Yoshi's Wooly World was announced. I could easily see it happening again.
Edit: Added a subsentence that I forgot to put in

I’m actually might be seeing it

Classified as yarn poochy
but not poochy

Yoshi woolly world stage removed
crafted world stage not involved and packages invovle a stage for the character

Crafted world Yoshi is involved
so poochy could get the same thing

Nintendo is calling the shots on the 5 and they usually promote
poochy would promote crafted world and poochy can use a crafted world stage since none is involved


I’m in support me

And no codulences for poochy when those two yarn Yoshi took the cookies before he did.

Great call with the Wolly World being absent and nothing on Crafted World to substitute it yet. I think it could be legit.

Also, just for funsies:
If you had to call for the 5 DLC characters, which one would they be?

Honestly there are so many factors that could be favourable or unfavourable for some characters that I can't really pinpoint 5 characters in particular, but I do think the following are serious contenders in no particular order of likeliness:

Slime (DQ)
Fjorm
Bandana Waddle Dee
Heihachi
Lloyd Irving
Rayman
Poochy
Monster Hunter
Phoenix Wright
King Boo
Joker/Jack Frost
Steve

Honorable mentions:
Sylux
Dixie Kong
Adeleine
Gen 8 Pokémon
FE 3 houses characters
(The former 3 I can definitely see happening, but there are some things which leave me uncertain. The latter 2 I doubt will happen. A gen 8 Pokémon has extreme recency to deal with, and Sakurai only added Corrin due to moveset potential, already hesitating with the number of FE characters. And from what I've seen, Fjorm has more (fresh) possibilities for a moveset than a 3 houses character.)

So, I don't know why I've waited so long to come here, but I support Poochy as a new Yoshi rep 100%. I have an almost involuntary adoration for the little guy, and always have--as a result, I bought the Wooly World 3DS port just for the Poochy levels (And amiibo) alone. As one might imagine, I lost it at the animated shorts in the game. I seriously love this little pup.

And honestly, he's got every reason to be considered: he's been in (I believe) every Yoshi game, and was even in Odyssey. He's a big enough deal to be brought back for every Yoshi game, and now has been featured on the cover art, as well as in the name of one. That's kind of a big deal, really. I can only imagine that translates to some measure of popularity. Obviously he's impossible to hate, and I doubt anyone's going to complain about the Yoshi series getting a rep.

What's more...with the reveal of Joker for DLC, and Reggie's words about "unexpected characters," I'm starting to believe Poochy is actually somewhat possible. There's no denying he'd be unique, especially if you factor in all the Yoshi series stuff he could incorporate into his moveset (Babies, pups, crafting, eggs--even chomp rocks!) And he'd definitely be unexpected. Plus, Crafted World will be releasing right around when Piranha Plant drops...possibly transitioning into a Poochy reveal as well. I'm sure the upcoming game and recent prominence of the Yoshi series could've sparked talk of more content for the series in Smash back when DLC was decided. Things are strangely lining up for the pup.

Weirder things have definitely happened (:ultpiranha:). I'm actually kind of hoping for it now, lol. It's neat to think it's somewhat possible, in this current environment.

Thus ends my Poochy rant.:p Hope you enjoyed it.

I'd much rather have Kamek, or even Boshi, but I love the Yoshi series a whole lot, and any 1st party rep is good in my book. I support this good boy.

As far as how likely he is? I really don't think it's a high amount, people are putting way too much stock into spirits.

Well better putting stocks into spirits than into EA.

(Don't think spirits matter that much but we've not got a lot to go on ATM)

I still believe Spirits is legit and that the missing ones are an indicator of possible future candidates, given that DLC planning was being sealed months so little time before the game's launch.
I think Poochy has a very good chance
