  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.

    Hello everyone, and welcome to the new season of Pokemon Perfect ADV OU Master Tours! I'm your new season host, CALLOUS, and I assume most of you are already familiar with me to some extent either from my YouTube channel, my past contributions to PP or a tournament we may have both been in. If not, I'm an ADV main who has been playing forever and was somewhat good at Pokemon once a long time ago.

    Anyhow, here's the deal with this particular tour...

    -Sign up in this thread for this tour only. This is a change from previous editions of PP Master Tours where players could sign up for the entire season all in one go. I think that's very silly and contributed to the inactivity problem I'll address shortly.

    -I'll accept any number of players. This is another change from previous editions of PP Master Tours where hosts were insistent on starting with exactly 32 or 64. I think it's silly to have 56 interested players and have to tell 24 of them they can't play. This way is far more inclusive. I have already figured out what to do in any given situation with any number of signups and it will all work out smoothly mathematically.

    -I'll be strict with activity! Rounds are one week, period, and I'm not big on excuses. I work 50+ hours every week, am married, have friends and family and all that good stuff just like you do and I still make it work. If you cannot find under an hour over the course of an entire week to play your match you simply should not sign up. Don't count on many extensions from me.

    -Along the same lines of cracking down on inactivity issues that have plagued these tournaments for a long time now, I'm going to keep a little notepad- players who activity out of one tournament will get a metaphorical slap on the wrist. Players who activity out of a second tournament will receive a one tournament penalty and will be excluded from entry into the next tour. I think that's more than fair. Again, if you don't have time to play or are going to waste somebody else's time, don't sign up.

    -Only Pokemon Perfect and Discord communication (with screenshots) will count toward activity decisions. Smogon/Pokemon Online/Pokemon Showdown communication, Skype conversations, etc will not be considered.

    My Goals As A Tournament Host-

    1. Be as fair/objective/neutral as possible at all times

    Biases, favoritism, cliques and things along those lines are all topics I've ranted about at length on multiple occasions and I strive to eliminate those things here. I plan to make all decisions based solely on the rules of the tournament and the evidence presented, period, regardless of Pokemon politics, having to rule against one of my friends, etc. Likewise, while I am allowed to do so I will never participate in a tour I am hosting- while I know I'd never do anything shady, I feel this nevertheless compromises the integrity of the tournament and that's something I'm simply unwilling to do.

    2. Find the balance of competitive and fun that works best for the community

    At one point I was heavily involved with Pokemon Perfect and its community and had an excellent feel of how the community felt and what most people wanted, but that was a couple years ago now. Admittedly, I'm possibly a bit out of touch with how some participants, especially ones I don't know personally, feel about these tournaments. Are they closer to "shits and giggles and I don't care what happens" or closer to seriousmons? I plan to assess things on a tour by tour basis, take an objective look at what I did well and what I maybe didn't do so well and make tweaks based on community response. I want everyone to enjoy themselves in these tours, but they need to be fair to all at all times, so I'll try my best to find the best way to do that. Personally, I'm closer to the competitive side than the casual side, but I fully understand not everyone feels the same way.

    3. Minimize inactivity and other inefficiencies

    As discussed above, these tours in the past have been plagued with activity problems and have also been known to drag on longer than is necessary, which I think benefits no one. I'd like to work these tours into a well oiled machine and bang them out in a timely manner so we can move on to the next one and have as little drama and boredom as possible. Ideally, I give as few extensions as possible, with the goal being none whatsoever, and the entire tour is done in six weeks or less.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If you have any questions, comments or concerns feel free to message me privately here on PP or on Discord (CALLOUS#7824) to discuss them. Otherwise, let's get the ball rolling!

    Simply write "in", or whatever else you want to write, to let me know you're signing up for this tour.

    Signups will close Saturday September 22nd at 11:59PM EST and the tour itself will begin (in a separate thread) the next day.

    Looking forward to a smooth and enjoyable season! <3
