-Bleach manga; chapter 254, page 1.The Privaron (Spanish: deprived) are former Espada who have lost their rank and are assigned a three-digit number. Being former Espada, they are far stronger than the normal Números. They reside in Tres Cifras, which translates literally from Spanish as "three digits". As mentioned by Dordonii, these former "naturally created" Espada were rendered obsolete after Aizen began artificially creating arrancar to meet his own standards.
using the hougyouku or just removing the mask in general gives them a power up.
you want evidence that they are being shinigamified?take a look at their apperance.humanoid form,zanpakutou, blah,blah.
arrancars dont have the equivalent of an asauchi.ie if they have a zanpakutou,they can release it.
ulquiorra took on full power masked ichigo without getting a scratch,and u look down on him?
and that green smiley is irritating
Yo, like the others said, El Gran pescador was created by the orb of distortion is just that aizen was making test and he was incomplete thats all
Now for the analysis they say that you have to rip of your mask to become arrancar but, Kubo Tite hasn't stated which are the conditions that you have to fullfill to become an arrancar, coz is not just brake the mask, dont you think it has to be something else, like preparing the reiatsu in a different shape or something.
Same with vizards, there is no clue about the process to gain hollow powers, it just said how to control them, ichigo won them by chance, so still your arrancar theory is kinda weak
^ No, as long as the mask is partially removed, it's an arrancar, Urahara specifically mentions the fact that just removing the mask does not necessarily grant the hollows any powers (a zanpakutō for example),but they are still definitely arrancar.
So, it make sure that for to remove the mask and gain any power ther must be something to do, not just rip the mask, if you rip the mask you become a hollow with it mask ripped, arrancar are hollows who rip their mask to gain shinigami powers, but dont worry i see your point very clear (im sounding like i have a Phd in bleach XDDDD must stop acting like that xP)
I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

You can't rip your mask for a specifc purpose..
I want to remove my mask to gain SuperSayian Powers
I want to remove my mask to gain Shinigami powers
I want to remove my mask to be in fashion, no power needed..
The act of removing the mask, naturaly or atrifically, does 1 thing to hollows humanoid/Humanlike shape.
The latent effect goes on how they removed their mask. Naturaly or Artificaly.. Removing artificialy conceids more power to the arrancar.
For what I remember, Aizen have been using 'MENOS' on his Hougyoku experiments.
Remember that the Hougyoku is SEALED Aizen needs to output 2 captains worth of reiatsu to weaken the barrier and use the thing.
Everytime he creates an arrancar the barrier weakens.
And they calculated that would take 4 months? for him to completely remove it.
Now little back to how hollow ranks goes..
Hollows - Fallen Pluses
Menos: Pile of a bunch of Hollows, and we have 3 Types here
Gillian - Weakest of them all..
Adjuchas - Mid term of power, almost human-like.. but not there yet.
Vasto Lords - Apice of power from normal means, human like apperance.
Now back to the Hougyoku:
Aizen been removing the mask of menos and up, grand fisher being a test subject was the only hollow know to have his mask removed. I assume every espada and numero out there is a menos atleast.
[corrected] All currently ALIVE espadas are Adjuchas. #9 was the only exception being a gillian, but he died already so there nothing to except anymore
Aizen is probably waiting for the full power of the Hougyoku, to use on Vasto Lords.

"Chile is a thin and tall country"
^ No where does it state that at least some of the Espada aren't vastorōde, while it could be true that none of them are, I don't know why people assume that.
Besides you're wrong about 6 and lower being gillian, #9 said that he was the only gillian in the Espada.
