  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.

    Following discussion in this thread it has been decided that we will begin testing BW2 1B, while offering BW2 OU as 1X as an alternative until such a time as BW2 is fit for 1U status. If you wish to discuss this plan, you are more than welcome to post in the aforementioned thread.

    So! This leaves us with some testing to do, hence this tour. The format is simple- it's a pseudo-round robin*, with weekly matchups consisting of 3 battles each. Players are welcome to come and go as they please. An important thing to note is that joining this tour is important if you want to have your say in shaping this tier, and if a council is necessary, performance in this tour will be considered.

    *restrictions imposed by prior matchups are currently only determined by the last few rounds, not the tournament as a whole

    Initial Ruleset
    Clauses: Sleep, Species
    Banned moves: Evasion (Double Team, Minimize), OHKO (Guillotine, Fissure, Sheer Cold, Horn Drill), Swagger

    So this may look like a big mess, but it gives everyone matches without the need for a bye. Basically you have to play three games vs each opponent listed next to your name where I 've tagged you, so I've got 3 games vs Polpo and 3 vs Mr Tim for example

    If I have time, I will catch sgr at his usual online times, but i would like to drop out from the next round. This is still one of my favorite tiers, but Pokemon is taking a back seat as a whole for the time being.

    All good Wreckdra, thanks for letting me know.

    I've also removed Haxel and The Loog Noog from the tournament due to inactivity, if I'm wrong to do so please let me know. Also this leaves us with 11 players and rather than hand out a bye I opted for this bracket which is a bit messier. It's the same as what was used in round 2

    New matchups everyone!

    Please make sure to get your matches done this week, although there's not really anyone in particular that I'd point at, I still think we can do better. Also please feel free to discuss the tier in the threads linked in the OP! The more discussion the better. I'll be adding subranks to the VR thread later on and nominating some discussion points that'll hopefully get things going a bit

    Yeah, I only went a couple rounds back in checking for prior matchups, purely because it becomes too difficult to ensure everyone gets a fresh matchup after too many rounds. I might have to reword the OP.

    It's also a product of my record keeping as I've only used this thread, whereas a spreadsheet is probably much more sensible
