What a devastating blow to the Brawl community. This month's CoroCoro issue only contains previously known info that has been announced on the Dojo. Even the screenshots are screenshots taken directly from the Dojo. The Brawl feature is a 16-page boolet featured within the magazine, containing Dojo information until about a week ago. The booklet does NOT confirm any starters directly, however we have a theory on the total number below. A preview for next month's issue's cards is shown. Pokemon Trainer gets 3 cards, for each of his Pokemon.
This leads me to believe that the original 30 character cards to be shown are going to be less with PT counting as 3 himself. No doubt Samus and her Zero Suit form will count as 2 cards. Shiek, being semi-confirmed would have her own card also, dropping it down to 26 individual roster spots. So are we getting 26 starters or total characters? 22 characters are revealed on the Dojo, and including the obvious Luigi, Falcon, and Ganondorf, that makes 25. It looks like the entire Dojo (except for Sonic and Snake), and a couple more characters to be added, will be the entire starting roster. Of course this is all speculation now that CoroCoro confirmed a card for each Pokemon of Pokemon Trainer. Here are some screens of the magazine:

More images will be added shortly!
Looks like all we can do to find out a new character is turn to Sakurai himself and the Dojo. I admit, I was really expecting some good news out of this.
All credit for discovering this goes out to kashikomarima****a for purchasing the issue and giving us the news.
Dont you just LOOOOOOVE the Japanese media? ... >.>
