  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.

    The RBY 2U council has voted in favour of re-testing Articuno and Moltres.
    Lusch, EB0LA, and sceptross voted in favour of it. marcoasd and Ortheore have yet to vote, but this may be amended if they decide to vote.
    These Pokemon are now allowed in 2U. If after some testing they are still deemed to be problematic, we will have a vote again upon whether or not they should be returned to RBY 2P.

    It looks like birds aren't the problem, because (Wrap) Tentacruel is proving to be oppressive due to Wrap combined with 100 base speed.
    We can test a bit more (teams including Haunter and fast pokemon), but I think it will eventually need to be banhammer'd.
    At first glance SD Tentacruel looks viable and still fair in that case - you know what I mean.

    EDIT: it starts to look better, but you really need to pay attention to teambuilding and I think losses due to unanswered threats are going to happen anyway.

    I'm currently using Dugtrio/Hypno/Kadabra/Kangaskhan/Tentacruel/Raichu, which gives you an idea of how much speed is needed.
