Well IF Aizen is one, Urahara has to be one. It's only logical. He was always on Aizen's intellectual level if not higher as well as possibly power if he got down to it (AKA Kubo allowed it)
Based on the 3 confirmed war potentials the remaning 2 can't be just anyone, they really need to be special.
Ichigo is a hybrid of everything and very strong at that, even fighting with most of his power sealed.
Aizen is one of the most intelligent ppl in bleach, he was insanely strong even before hogyoku and after the fusion he is much stronger.
Kenpachi was always a beast and now he unseald his strength and even learned his Zanpakutos name.
That's why i really believe that Urahara must be one. He was connected to every significant event in bleach, Aizen himself admited that Uraharas intellegence is greater than his, he is great at swordfighting, hand to hand combat, kido, he is very fast and i believe that he still didn't show us his true strength.
This is of course only my opinion and i have no evidence to back it up but i wouldn't put it past him that he lost to Aizen on purpose just so that Ichigo could learn FGT or that he let Kirge jail Ichigo so that his quincy powers would awaken.
You can say whatever you want but you must admit that there's more to him than meets the eye.
If urahara is a war potential I seriously doubt it will be because of his actual fighting strength. Don't get me wrong, urahara is without a doubt a powerful fighter, but he has not shown to be anything exceptional within the ranks of the SS captains. His only remarkable feature is not his fighting skills but rather his intellect and inventiveness which exceeds mayuri's and aizen's.
You guys are all forgetting , that Urahara once said to Renji, when Chad asked Urahara to train him, that his bankai is not meant to train somebody because it's too powerfull, that's why he put Renji to train Chad, so we can't say how strong is Urahara surely, since we don't know his bankai...just think about it , how much can a bankai change a persons fighting style or power. So we can't say that he is one of the war potential.
I would say as i said earlier, Ukitake and on the other hand Kyoraku. I can't think that they aren't more powerfull then Yamamoto's Vice Captain (forgot his name), since he died in 2 minutes against quincys.

He has yet to even show a fraction of his fighting capabilities.
The only thing I would argue urahara is hiding from us is bankai at this stage. Other than that I would think we saw everything he had to show when he fought cocoon aizen... And considering aizen was hardly trying (and hardly had a need to) I doubt it is above what your standard G13 captain can do. I mean, 8 captains did get their asses handed to them by shinigami aizen but that was an aizen which was actually trying to win (and did win rather easily in the end).
This whole chapter is basically him against Aizen and both times Aizen did not manage to at all injure Urahara (he did so later before he left for KT)
You could argue that Aizen had his guard down, but that says nothing about Uraharas ability.
Also about the TBTP thing, realize that Aizen was aware of Uraraha attacking him, however his reflexes helped him out.
I'm not saying Urahara is not capable of being a war potential im just stating its unlikely unless the VR have logs of everything Urahara is about which i think is not the case due to him being pretty aware of everything around him. But i do have a theory that Urahara is going to use the VR or do something to stop a later threat from Aizen

Well, no, it does not however that does not mean that what we saw in any way implies urahara has strength exceeding that of your standard captain either. What we saw from urahara when he fought alongside yoruichi and ishin against aizen was nothing entirely out of the ordinary by what we should expect from captains except for those very specialized kidos he developed (however that in itself is not exactly an indication of how he would compare in terms of overall power with a regular captain). Urahara and co ended up lasting 2 seconds once aizen actually tried and that is precisely what would have happened had aizen actually tried at any other point in the fight.
Can you pls tell me where it is stated that Harribel can help hollows become arrancar in a short amount of time, i can't remember that.
I admit that it's possible that they didn't include him in 5 war potentials because they don't know much about him. He has always worked from the shadows, never showing more than he wanted others to see so he is still a mystery to other characters in bleach as he is to us.
