  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. Also, 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.

    Question: what does Porygon do?

    The reason why Porygon works in RBY 1U/OU is because you can use it alongside Chansey to wall Snorlax while freeing up Chansey for other things, but otherwise Chansey is almost completely superior. Is there a matchup where Porygon's Attack stat and/or Sharpen comes into play?

    I found a niche for it, with using the move 'conversion'. It changes its type to that of the opponents mon. So making it withstand special attacks, and its already existing physical bulk makes it similar to that of reflect Chansey.

    May have a better set, but I just dabbled in it a little, but I used: Recover/Rest/IceBeam/Conversion

    Maybe it doesn't fit on the list, as it's out-classed by Chansey, but maybe a better set can be made.

    Edits-
    -Porygon removed from list.
    Out-classed by Chansey.
    -Vaporeon removed from list.
    Out-classed by Slowbro.
    -Articuno B -> B+
    Best counter to Tauros, can even hax a slowbro to ko.
    -Dugtrio B- -> D
    Only really beats Electrics, but yet still loses to Zapdos. Gets 1hko, by almost every ice/water type above.
