  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.

    Sorry for being so late with putting this up, been busy irl. Since we don't really have any of the most exceptional DPPers available on this site I'm not certain if after this tournament finishes a cycle we'll engage in a vote, but we'll see at least if it's significantly better or worse than DPP with Stealth Rock. A reminder of the ban criteria:
    It's pretty hard to say given this criteria whether we feel rocks should be removed or not, and hopefully this tournament will provide some insight.

    A reminder: Players are encouraged to discuss the metagame in this thread. In this thread, discuss whether we ought to ban Stealth Rock or keep it - is it sufficiently broken, and does removing it increase diversity enough, that we feel it ought to be banned?

    HP Percentage Mod; Endless Battle Clause*; Stalemate Clause**; Sleep Clause; Species Clause; Evasion Abilities Rule ***; Speed-Passing Clause ****; Banned Moves: Double Team, Fissure, Guillotine, Horn Drill, Minimize, Sheer Cold, Stealth Rock, Banned Pokémon: Arceus, Darkrai, Deoxys-E, Dialga, Garchomp, Giratina, Giratina-O, Groudon, Ho-oh, Kyogre, Latias, Latios, Lugia, Manaphy, Mew, Mewtwo, Palkia, Rayquaza, Salamence, Shaymin-S, Wobbuffet, Wynaut

    * - This clause is the prevention of infinite battles, for the benefit of new players of the game (who might otherwise be forced into these for the fun of people not thinking of the consequences of their actions on the lower ladder).
    ** - Stalemate Clause is the permission of draws in games at a stage when, after a long amounts of turns, no PP is used (other than from moves gained by Transform), and no damage is dealt.
    *** - Sand Veil and Snow Cloak cannot be used as an ability on a Pokémon that has access to an alternative ability.
    **** - Baton Pass and a move that boosts speed cannot be used on the same set.
