  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.

All Gens Describing an aspect of our Tiering System using Rowlet Matryoshka

    Let me explain ban transitivity in our tiering system using Rowlet Matryoshka.

    [​IMG]

    Now, the first Rowlet represents every possible game you could ever have in 1U, the second Rowlet represents every possible game you could ever have in 2U, and so on. Because our bans are transitive, the second Rowlet can always sit inside the first Rowlet, the third Rowlet can always sit inside the second Rowlet and so on.

    But what if we had a non-transitive ban, such as banning Wrap in 2U and then allowing it in 3U? Then the third Rowlet streeeetches out its wings, and now it can't sit inside the second Rowlet. :(

    Luckily, in our system, we don't allow non-transitive bans, so the Rowlets never spread their wings and they can sit inside one another! :)

    This is reaching soviet propaganda levels of ELI5, but funny post nevertheless. Fits better in the Chat section though.

    So people actually think wrap is broken? Or they just find it annoying?

    By the way, fun fact, because of this:
    the Rowlet in fact represent an infinite number of games, and hence can be thought of as infinite Rowlets!

    For those who are set theory nerds, however, I ask you: are these Rowlet infact same size infinities (in which case the smaller Rowlet are copies of the bigger Rowlet) or different sized infinities? ;) I would guess that they are in fact the same size of infinity. Secondly, are the Rowlet countably infinite or uncountably? :p
