  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.

    As we all know, the guides written by Borat are very influential and have brought many people to gsc, My proposal is a group of people with decent gsc knowledge come together and write another one to increase the amount of people that play the tier. The guides have brought many influential players to gsc like Lavos, and also brought me here too. If we created a project and actually had a decent amount of people with interest, we could do this and create a good resource for generations to come.

    The way we will split up work is we would have specific topics that come under the large umbrella of gsc ou, and assign each one to people who are interested in each specific topic. Note that the purpose of this guide is to bring newcomers to a medium experience level, or around 1500 on the ladder.

    anyone interested?

    I would love this. The Borat guides are super old so may be outdated (honestly I'm not sure), and the tone is needlessly self-aggrandizing and aggressive, and that can actually turn some players off (I couldn't get through them, I'll tell you that much). I'm interested in GSC and I've dabbled, and I would love an up-to-date, comprehensive, and friendly guide. This is a great idea.

    A guide about how to be an elitist, abrasive asshole despite never accomplishing anything?

    No thanks. Change the name to "GSC Guide," "GSC for Dummies," or something else along those lines.

    It looks like this guide might actually have paragraphs, so I look forward to it.

    I would love to see any sort of guidance or analysis in GSC... I will say if you want to imitate the large paragraphical style of the borat guide, it would be very useful to include some sort of table of contents so that things are accessible at a glance, at least to some extent. That's kinda why I prefer analyses and articles that focus on specific topics rather than a massive tl;dr, tbh, but like something akin to a new borat guide would be nice too,,,

    seeing that there might be people interested (strangely enough, they are all rbyers) I will start planning the "GSC for Dummies" by breaking it up into manageable pieces, then creating a signup sheet, and well see how this goes. Happy people are interested!

    Bumping, because i feel the need to generate interest and attract people who can write a decent paragraph or two about gsc and help this project gain traction.

    Borat is actually pretty knowledgeable about the game. He knows the basics really well, whereas a lot of player don't even know that. But in terms of playing at the highest level and knowing all the minute details that separate the champions from the advanced players, he doesn't know much at all in that regard. I don't say this with any condescension (tone can be hard to hear online) . I'm basing this off of his analysis, battle logs, and just the general odd comment he'll make every now and then that makes it clear he has never been at the peak of gsc.

    I do agree that a new gsc guide is needed some time in the future. As of now I think borat's guide is good enough (even though he uses an egotistical tone throughout the guide, and the only thing worse than an egotistical person is an egotistical person who REALLY does not deserve that ego) . If a new guide was made now then I'm sure it would become outdated soon enough. What is a good strategy today might not be good tomorrow. When I stopped playing there was A LOT of growth to be done, a lot of evolving to do. And I feel like the game hasn't evolved that much in the months I've been gone. I would feel more comfortable with a guide being made once the game has evolved much more than it is in its current state.
