  2. Welcome to Pokemon Perfect, Guest!

    Our motto is Pokémon Practice makes Pokémon Perfect. We are a competitive-battling community that encourages the development of players and their ideas, and fosters positive and respectful attitudes. We love Collaboration (working together), Competition (getting stronger), and Communication (being informed).

    You are free to post everywhere, unless the thread explicitly states otherwise (usually in the case of a vote), and there are no private forums whatsoever. We just require you to not make multiple accounts. Let us greet you by posting a thread in the Introduce Yourself! forum.

  3. Tiers

    View Introduction to Tiers if you don't know what tiers are. Pokémon Perfect tiers are named differently to those on Smogon. A numeral followed by the letter U, e.g. 1U, 2U, 3U, represents a main tier on Pokémon Perfect – the '1' of '1U' representing the tier level. For a tier to be a main tier, it must be balanced (nothing is too powerful and game-breaking) and diverse enough (include a variety of Pokémon and strategies). A numeral followed by the letter P, e.g. 1P, 2P, 3P contain all Pokémon that are deemed overpowered in the respective 1U, 2U, 3U tiers. The 1st tier level allows Pokémon that are banned in the 2nd level, and this process continues down. Read the tier list, and in-depth explanations of the tiers naming system and tiering system. Also check out our analyses for all tiers.

  4. Tournaments

    RBY 1U Seasons and its master tournaments are responsible for starting up the community, and tournaments continue to play a big role in maintaining interest in the forums. Signups Open gives you a list of tournaments you can join, and Ongoing lists tournaments that you might want to follow. Additionally, you can tap to find out approximate Schedules for tournaments.

    For historical threads, check out Signups Closed, Finished tournaments and Results. We also have Nominations, Voting and Event threads for exhibitions – past and present.

    Hi, I'm your opponent for the GSC MT 31. I'm GMT-5, this is going to be very difficult for me as I have extreme irl shit going on rn. I can really only play around 4:00 PM weekdays my time, cannot do weekends at all. Friday is my best day as there's a slight chance I'll be free later my night (like 9 PM) and this is probably my best time.
    1. LUX

      I might also be able to make some time next Monday if I'm even around, if I don't respond over the weekend and we don't play this week take the win as I won't be able to play otherwise. I'm bill#5428 on discord if you wanna schedule there, would *much* prefer here tho.

    Hi! We've got to play RBY MT, I'm GMT -4. I am free this weekend so I'd like to play on Saturday from 6 PM or Sunday from 6 AM onwards (not sure about this but I'll try), let me know what time works for you.

      Well I don't think I can do 8 PM, that's 2 PM for me and I am usually busy around that time. Can you do 1 AM (which is 7 PM for me)?

      Sorry man, that's too late for me. Is there any chance you can play earlier on any day ?

      Yeah well that's too late for you, it's understandable. I am not sure if I can but I'll see what I can do. If I don't manage to play by the end of Wednesday (which seems to be the final deadline), feel free to take the win. That's fair enough considering that I missed the scheduled time before.
