Character Poll For SSB4

Yesterday night, I've stumbled across this unofficial character poll for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games for the Wii U and 3DS:

The list looks good so far, until I ran into some very odd choices. Here are my problems with the list:

1. Balloon Fighter was scrapped as being playable in Melee for a reason; he didn't meet the requirements Sakurai wanted from a character.
2. Tom Nook is not a main character, it's your avatar. Besides, Sakurai didn't want to include playable Animal Crossing reps because it's a peaceful franchise.
3. Why N over a female trainer [s]not named Iris[/s] or Zoroark? Plus this whole one character per franchise rules ruins the two new Pokemon reps pattern the SSB titles have it going.
4. Professor Layton is actually a Third Party character. The list only includes Nintendo characters according to its description, but little do they realize is that the franchise is a third party title in Japan (Nintendo just publishes them offshores).
5. There's too many sword-wielding characters on this list. We need characters who uses other unique weapons such as a chainwhip, which I imagine Mach Rider will use.

The comment responses then proceeds in wishing for the exact same characters (Paper Mario, Banjo Kazooie, etc) that were included in every other's roster prediction, which makes me feel like I'm the only one who knows how the roster will be like after studying them from the past three titles for 4 years.

    That's impossible. Everyone thought they knew Game Freak, and then bam, BW2.

    I'm so buying this if Ashley from WarioWare makes it in.

    Yes! Shulk in 1st and Ghiry in 2nd? Awesome! I'd love both of them to be in the game. ^_^

    N also has a lot of votes. :3

    @Exor; But I want a female trainer, and Mewtwo already fits the bill as an antagonistic rep. Looks like Leaf is going to be used as Red's alternate costume...

    @Ghetsis-Dennis; That's always a possibility, just cause a character isn't on the poll doesn't mean they can't be in. This is, however, great news for Shulk, Ghirahim, and N fans like me.

    Also, where is Bowser Jr.? :/

    @Exor; Waluigi took his place, and it's mostly because they only pick one character per franchise who is mostly voted.

    Stupid Waluigi. Bowser Jr. is loads better than him. >.<

    ....as are Petey Piranha and Fawful, but they won't be playable. *Hopes for cameos*
