This is the second or third month that capcom US is publishing the character usage stats telling us how bout the shotos are popular. This sound very suspicious. It looks like as if they were trying to easy people in to accept a new shoto for the game. Like, "Hey guys, look how much a shoto character is loved, everybody uses them".

Ryu, Akuma and Ken always are the first 3 characters in the usage for a long time, but only NOW capcom is every month telling us that.

Man, it sounds so bad like if we were about to get a new shoto as one of the 5 new characters. That line up with the "easy to make" "lazy effort" "save money" speculation I was having. This is the end of the road for this game. And even capcom said "Final Season". So I don't expect all 5 characters to be great/amazing type of characters.

Don't you think that's suspicious too? They try to easy people in for when they reveal a shoto people don't get all upset.

We got a shoto every season besides season 1 (some may argue that season 1 Urien or Guile fit that purpose)

Agreed.

Season 1 the "Shoto" like you said could be Guile, sonic boom = hadoken / flashkick = shoryuken
Season 2 - Akuma
Season 3 - Sakura
Season 4 - Kage
Season 5 - Dan?

I'd be fine with it as long as it were Sean or Dan.

God I hope we get Dan or Gouken and not trash like Elena.

And no Guile is nothing like a shoto. If Guile is a shoto, then literally everyone with a fireball is one.

Is not like Guile is a shoto per say. Did you noticed the " ? Is like he's functions act like a shoto-like character like Ryu. Guile sonic bom could be compared to a hadoken and his flash kick could be compared to a shoryken. Both flashkick and shoryuken have the same function. Like both sonic boom and hadoken have the same function. Is not only about the projectile attack.
Sure Guile is not a shoto but his function act like a shoto-like character.

Well that's stretching it mate. There are a bunch of characters with a fireball and anti air/do type move, but they cannot be classified as "shotos". Juri would qualify as a shoto, as would Rashid if we go by your definition. Hell even Laura has a fireball and an anti air special. Ed has a fireball and a dp like kick too.

Shotos are all tied directly or indirectly to Akuma, Gouken, Ryu and Ken, including Dan and Sean. Oni is a manifestation of Akuma too. Evil Ryu and Kage are linked to Ryu, which completes the list of shotos in Sf5. Some categorise Sagat as a shoto, but I don't agree as he is not linked to Gouken/Akuma and their students.
