We don't. In WFC, trypticon died and transformed into a decepticon warship, which the wiki lists as the Nemesis. It's not a bad theory that the thing is actually trypticon, but there is no indication that it actually is.
Wrong on every account. In Exiles, actually, Trypticon takes on the form of the Nemesis to pursue the Autobots through the Space Bridge with the other Decepticons, but it sort of "kills" him, and afterwords he just becomes a regular spaceship. It's not a theory, it's stated fact.
I think the "theory" Hypershock is referring to is that Trypticon is Megatron's ship in Prime. Unless I missed something, that has not been stated.
Trypticon transformed into the Nemesis in Exiles, then lost his sentience after a Space Bridge mishap. The Decepticons are still using the Nemesis, which was recently revealed to be sentient. If it is a theory, it's a theory with tons of evidence stacked in it's favor.
"Oh, but Megatron acted surprised when it woke up!" And Starscream acted surprised when he first saw Dark Energon, despite the fact that when we first meet him in WfC, he'd been working with the stuff.
If anything, it's only a theory that they switched out ships at some point. Or more specifically, they switched out one ship with the capacity for sentience with another ship with the capacity for sentience. And gave them both the same name.
"Oh, but they never said his name!" They never named any of Original 13, except for Solus and the Fallen, and they still showed them. It doesn't mean the Original 13 are an entirely different line-up, it just means they never said their names.
All this "proof" that it isn't really Trypticon isn't very convincing. Especially in the face of precedence.
