You want to go definitions here

"handheld game console, or simply handheld console, is a small, portable self-contained video game console with a built-in screen, game controls, and speakers.[1] Handheld game consoles are smaller than home video game consoles and contain the console, screen, speakers, and controls in one unit, allowing people to carry them and play them at any time or place.[2][3]"

The Wii U's portability doesn't fall under this no matter how hard you want to loosen the definition of portable you know why? Because it's not self contained and can't be play anywhere therefore it's not a hybrid Handheld/Home Console as it can only be played at home no fallacy or loose definition you pull out will change this fact.

So the Wii U isn’t a hybrid because you can’t use the gamepad without the main console. So it’s a standard home console.

So logic would state that the Switch isn’t a hybrid because you can’t play with the dock without the handheld. So it’s a standard handheld console.

Hybrid is just a buzz word, I guess.

Either that or they are both hybrid consoles despite one having bigger limitations. No where is it said that for a console to be a hybrid, it has to be handheld first, home console second. Both the Wii U and Switch achieved their hybrid form factor with opposite method. One being a home console first, the second being a handheld first.

But of course, Nintendo mentioned that buzz word only for the Switch... 

Except you can play on a TV with out the dock as I mentioned earlier so your attempt at a fallacy hilariously falls apart as Switch is fully self contained, what further highlights how laughable your attempt at trying to save this sinking argument is that the definition of a hybrid would mean that the device has to fall into the definitions of both handheld and home console and guess what Wii U doesn't fall under the definition of handheld so therefore can't be an hybrid as the device is rooted to be played only in the house while Switch comfortably falls under both definitions. You have presented no argument that counters this hence the failed fallacy attempt.
