I think we're going to have to agree to disagree here. I don't agree with any of your points, honestly. They all seem based around a skeptical mindset rather than one that tries to rationalize facts. It's like a glass-half-full and a glass-half-empty person trying to see the same thing.You're making excuses for the leaker. Stop it. This is the exact problem with the leak supporters that bugs me the most out of anything else leak related.
If he had access to the information on both leaks, it stands to reason he had information on Rosalina, too. He chose not to release it for some reason, probably because he never had the information to begin with, likely because he never saw it coming because the whole thing is tripe.
Why didn't he release the information if he had it? Who knows. Not like he didn't have plenty of time to let that information go. Instead, he stuck to releasing information days/hours before major events and it came back to bite him on the *** in this occasion.
Yeah, but the problem is that he didn't, and you can't rationalize away that that's an enormous red flag against the leak. I can use it for facts against the leak because there's nothing about him missing Rosalina that SUPPORTS the leak. So, yeah, I can, and it holds all kinds of grounds. People choose to ignore it as evidence because, again, it's not convenient for Gematsu Leak supporters.
Who seriously saw Rosalina coming? No-one.
Who outside of Japan saw Greninja coming? No-one.
Who saw ZSS, Charizard and Sheik becoming separate characters? No-one
Both the initial confirms and the solo character information would have us sitting here, sipping coffee and discussing what kinds of characters Palutena, Chorus Men and Shulk would inevitably be. It didn't happen for whatever reason, and so here we are, arguing about it.
Literally, right now? The ONLY evidence that supports the Gematsu Leak is Wii Fit Trainer. All I'm asking for is for lightning to strike twice. He missed several opportunities to do just that. SEVERAL COMPLETELY SEPARATE OPPORTUNITIES. And failed to do so. It's not like it's an isolated event. This is a consistent failure to convince us that the leak isn't a fluke.
Man, I understand that people want the leak to be real. People want EVERY leak to be real. People cling to this leak because it has the tiniest shred of evidence that there might be something to it.
Not necessarily, but you know what else predicts stuff in a vague fashion that could, in some extremely broad sense, be conceived as accurate? I'll give you a second to answer that.
That's right, psychics and horoscope readings.. and funny thing, there's no evidence that any of that is accurate, either.
Anyway, I'm not particularly upset or anything. If the leak's right, it's right. Cool. I was wrong, and I'm willing to admit that. If the leak's wrong, it's wrong. Cool, but people won't admit that it's wrong, and people are choosing to ignore the evidence that it just might be wrong. That's upsetting to me.
There's only so many times you can handwave inconvenient information and evidence, and rationalize it because you have to sit back and look at it all in one big picture and say 'Huh, there might be something here.'. I'm willing to admit that Wii Fit Trainer is the foundation of the leak. That's an impressive guess, or the guy clearly had some kind of information. There's something there. Unfortunately, you can't build a sound, reliable house with just the foundation, and the Gematsu Leak doesn't even have walls, let alone a roof.
You claim that he didn't list the whole roster because he didn't have it. I disagree. As others have stated before, there are reasons to why someone who is trying to protect their job would not do this. It makes them easily targetable. But releasing it in short bursts like the leaker has makes it harder to track. But you know what else it does? It makes it less believable to some. I can understand that. To some, the situation is black or white, either he's right or he's wrong, and if he's not 100% right, he's wrong.
I choose to live in the grey. I can come up with ideas and theories as to why the leaker might not have revealed everything just as you can come up with ideas and theories as to why him not revealing everything proves he's wrong, but when you boil this down to the facts, it's clear that the leaker, whether it's a lucky guess or an accurate leak, is more right than wrong.
He has guessed/knew about Wii Fit Trainer, Mega Man, Animal Crossing Guy, Little Mac, and Pokemon from X and Y. He has not had anything deconfirmed. This is what it boils down to, and that's it.
