Are there 43? Because that's how many playable characters were in Tekken 6.
Well, to be fair, Tekken's resources have been recycled for dozens of games. Old characters are brought back with maybe a few tweaks, but coming up with an entirely new roster with unique movesets, models, and animations takes a lot of time. I'm guessing this game will have 20-25 characters at the most with more added in updates, like with Super Street Fighter IV.

Eh, fair enough. Still, that kinda makes my point a little stronger: The fact that we have seen non-iconic Pokémon in this game so early is a clear point that this is not going to just be the mascots taking up all the roster.
True, but it's a Pokemon fighting game. Pokemon's made a name for itself already without having to rely on people recognizing the most popular characters. I mean, I know they're going to throw in Greninja and Mewtwo. I just wish they didn't.
Remember how excited we all were when Ivysaur was playable in Brawl? It was so unexpected. I love surprises like that.
Yeah, totally. I'm hoping we just get a few of the popular ones and then the rest of the cast is filled out with weird and cool ones. I actually wish the early rumours that the game would only have fighting types was true. Beyond Lucario and Blaziken I can't think of many fighting types I'd consider overdone. That reminds me, didn't the first footage we saw of this game aaaaaages show Lucario fighting Blaziken? Where's that dude now?
