  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.

    Season points in the first stage will be awarded for every battle won. In the elimination rounds, two points will be awarded for winning the set.

    Tour format

    This tournament is divided into two stages- the initial stage and the elimination stage

    Initial stage

    This stage consists of two rounds (one week each), with each round consisting of three battles. In order to advance to the next stage, each player must win three of their six battles. After the initial stage, the tournament progresses on to the elimination stage, unless it is absolutely impossible to create a reasonable bracket.

    Elimination stage

    This is single elimination, with each match being Bo3. Players are seeded as best as possible based on the results from the initial stage. The bracket should be able to be resolved with 1v1 and 1v1v1 matches, with at most a handful of byes.

    Why I use this format

    I've implemented this format to address issues with standard single elimination, where half of all players would play just a single match and be done with the tournament. That kind of result is thoroughly unsatisfactory for many players, especially those who expected to go deep into the tournament. The initial stage addresses this by requiring that all players play at least two sets, which is a more substantial experience, while also being relatively generous in terms of who progresses to the following round

    Once again, you need to win three battles across the first two weeks to advance to the following round! All matches after the first stage are ft2w (Bo3)

    Be sure to check out the viability rankings for discussion of the tier!

    Please be visibly active in scheduling matches (VMs)! If you contact via means that I can't see (e.g. Discord PM) then it is up to you to inform me of how things have gone in the event that a match comes to activity. Also, feel free to request extensions, I really don't mind giving them most of the time.

    First Stage (round one)- deadline is Monday 16th April

    Is there a way to earn more than 3 points in the first round?

    Yes, the first stage spans two weeks, so a maximum of 6 points can be earned.

    I think my terminology here is a bit suspect though. Perhaps it would be better to refer to the initial round as the first stage, with this week being the first round. Might go ahead and change it.

    Alright. Are you guaranteed to get 6 points for getting through the first stage?

    Ok, so not a lot of battles have been done, but most players are in contact so I'm just going to extend this round until Thursday.

    I'm sending pms to Ariistella, Lasen and Caetano93, as they have not been in contact with their opps afaik

    Sorry for my lack of activity the past few days, irl has been bloody frantic

    Based on lack of communication with their opponents and myself, I'm removing Caetano93 and AriiStella♥'' from the tour. This counts as a 3-0 win for their opponents

    First Stage (round two) deadline is Thursday 27 April
    Joyverse vs WhiteLion
    Lasen vs steelskitty
    p2 vs Ryum
    byronthewellwell vs Pendragon
    Alfredo_Rivero vs raimon
    Ortheore vs Sas0

    Additionally, subbing p2 in place of Bro Kappa for round one Joyverse (this was randomly determined)

    I'd like to point out that unfinished matches from round one can still be completed! On that note, since a number of you have got two matches at the same time, if you need an extension feel free to let me know, I'll generally be happy to grant it

    Currently at 1-1 with P2. Didn't do the last game due to bad connections. Will get our last game done ASAP. Sorry Boss.

    Sorry for the delay in posting the round.

    Activity wins granted to Pendragon, Alfredo_Rivero and p2. In the former two cases they've made activity posts stating their opps missed scheduled times. In the latter case, I couldn't find any contact between P2 and Ryum, but P2 completed their matches against Joyverse, whereas Ryum hasn't completed any matches. All those who received an activity win will be awarded a 3-0 score for that match. As for Byron vs Ryum, I'm calling that a dead game, since neither of them completed any of their other matches.

    Scores from the first stage (does not distinguish between battle wins and activity wins)
    Pendragon 6-0
    WhiteLion 6-0
    Alfredo_Rivero 5-1
    Lasen 4-2
    Ortheore 4-2
    p2 4-2
    steelskitty 3-3
    -----Users above this line advance to the next round-----
    Joyverse 2-4
    Sas0 0-6

    Quarterfinals- deadline is Monday 7th May
    All matches are ft2w (Bo3)
    Players are seeded based on the scores above, with all ties being randomly determined

    Pendragon vs bye

    Granting myself an activity win, since P2 didn't respond to either a VM or PM, and I couldn't access their smogon profile. Please let me know if you wish to see evidence, since I'm aware this is a conflict of interest

    Sorry for the delay

    Won 2-0 vs Pendragon, ggs well played.

    Since there was a bit of confusion, this round is Bo3, not three battles or w/e.

    I'm going to have to work on a post explaining how this format works, because I agree that it can be confusing and I'm probably not doing a good job communicating it

    Gonna go ahead and call activity on steelskitty vs Pendragon, with Steelskitty getting the win as Pendragon has not responded to VM

    This means this tournament has now concluded. Just to recap:
    • You earn one season point for each battle won in the initial stage (max 6). Activity wins are treated as a 3-0 win.
    • You earn two points for winning a match in the elimination stage (i.e. 2-0 or 2-1).
    • Lasen, myself and steelskitty all receive prizes ($15, $10 and $5 AUD respectively). However, as the prizes from a single tournament are quite small, you'll have to request that they be paid, otherwise I'll record the amount you've won and it'll hopefully accumulate (I'm not going to chase people up over something as small as $5, but if you want the prize it's all your's, just let me know)
