I have a feeling that Sceptile was only included as a playable character in Pokken Tournament to complete the Hoenn starter trio along with Swampert's future reveal. Compared to the other Pokémon on the roster, Sceptile isn't that popular and it doesn't seem like he got in on his own merits. Then again, it seems weird that Bamco would give special treatment to the Gen 3 starters when Gen 1 is more popular...
Sceptile won a popularity poll in Japan that led to it being added.
I am hoping for Swampert but it's not a guarantee at all, especially after last week when it seemed really sure (Chandelure is one of my favorites though so it's all cool).

Really? I didn't know that. I thought it either got in to complete the Hoenn starter trio or promote the current season of the anime
There's no broken trio in Smash 4, Charizard and Greninja have no relation. They cut the trio that they had in Brawl anyway.
