  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.

    It's time to return to 5U!

    It's pretty simple, this will be an ongoing round robin tour which players can feel free to join/leave at any time. Each week I will give all active participants a new matchup, and they will complete three battles against their opponents. Player rankings will be determined based on battles won-battles lost, so every battle counts!

    Players are encouraged to discuss the meta in the discussion thread.
    Viability rankings are also a good place to discuss stuff.

    lost 0-3 vs linek, primeape is a beast and also

    Seadra Hydro Pump vs. Gastly: 127-150 (48.2 - 57%) -- 92.6% chance to 2HKO

    hydro > surf for rest gastly. Literally the reason I lost g3.

    I'm a Sub. Does that mean I'm not in this round of matches or that I'm not in the tour at all?

    It means you're not in matches this round, but you'll definitely be in the next round. The issue is that if I were to include you in this round it would've meant reorganising all of the matchups for this round.

    3-0'd Ortheore with a mixture of hax going my way, Orth using what looked like old meta teams, and Orth choking a few times.

    Ugh, sorry I forgot about this, working mornings fucks you up.

    First, I'm going to remove Galaxy from the tour, as they've not responded to anyone, nor logged in at all this month. Galaxy, if you're active and I'm wrong to do so, please let me know and you'll be back in.

    New matchups! Deadline is 28th of this month, which is a Tuesday

    terpnation vs Ortheore vs Diegolh
    thelinekioubeur vs Enigami vs Paul
    Peasounay vs Peef Rimgar vs Disaster Area

    Also I will have a suspect thread for Dragonair up shortly. Regardless of the outcome of the suspect, it will NOT have an effect on this week's matches unless both players agree otherwise

    went 2-1 vs peas in some really good games
    g1 was super close
    g2 i lost kinda badly
    g3 was close too

    there was luck that made a difference in both the ones I won but it was more like: tight games every miss matters kind of hax than a blazing trail of glory kind of hax so it was fun.

    Hey everyone, new matches!

    Unfortunately, I've removed Peef Rimgar due to inactivity, as they've not played any games, been unresponsive via vm, I tried pming via Discord as well, but to no avail. Also, Diegolh has informed me that due to irl stuff they cannot commit to playing matches. As always, if I'm wrong to remove you from the bracket please let me know, and also feel free to drop back in at any time.

    This left us with 7 players, which is really convenient because it's a perfect number for making tournament brackets /s. Consequently I've tried a new format this week. It's much the same as the usual groups of three format in that you have two opponents against which you play 3 battles each, it's just there's not distinct groups of three, instead everyone's matches overlap.

    So for instance, I'll play 3 battles each against Linek and Paul

    Week 3- deadline is Friday 10th March
    Note that matches are listed twice- you have one matchup per different opponent, not one for every time it's listed

    Finished my series with Terp with a score of 1-2. ggs well played, definitely the last two games were great, with the second coming down to the final turns and the last battle being full of tension until lord Lickitung found an opening

    2-1 vs Linek, ggs well played

    Yet more bad RNG vs. terpnation against a Ninetales that hit with every Fire Spin it needed when my Seadra had been toxic'd and left me with no ability whatsoever to play around it.
