We love Collaboration (working together), Competition (getting stronger), and Communication (being informed).

  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.

    What was your introduction to pokemon?
    First memory, episode, game?
    What was your first favorite pokemon and why? And is it still?Thought it would be fun to start this chat and we could all see into each other's souls.
    One thing I'm wondering is how youngsters came into pokemon a few generations later then decided to go back and master rby.

    As for me, I was 7. I remembered seeing pokemon toys and commercials when it hit the U.S., but I didn't think I'd get into it. Until my first episode on a Saturday morning. I missed several episodes and came in on Ash's gym battle with Misty. Staryu ko'd Butterfree, and Pidgeotto ko'd starmie. Pikachu sat out because he loved Misty. I was immediately hooked and started musing about what pokemon I'd run with in my imaginary world. Since I had only seen a handful of them from that episode, I began to create my own. I loved to draw at the time so I tried to put all my ideas on paper.
    I play gen 1 because I only played rby and gsc on Gameboy. After that I went through my Pokemon is lame phase in middle school. I never bought another cartridge game but did pull out stadium 1 to try to beat the various cups which was quite hard with rentals. After failing quite a few times I discovered Smogon and used the rby set guides to find the best equiped rentals to get it done. Ended up relying on Jynx heavily because she did have lovely kiss+ ice punch and psychic.

    So Smogon led me to showdown and meeting good players led me here.
    First favorite pokemon was Charmander. Before pokemon i was all about Mario games. Yoshi was my favorite character to play and draw. When I saw Charmander my first thought was it's a cute little orange Yoshi that has fire powers. Fire was my favorite element so it was fate.
    My favorite today is Charizard. I guess as I matured my favorite did too.
    As new generations came out, there have been plenty of cool pokes that could have dethroned zard. But at this point he is like my spirit animal so thats that.

    Alright that was my turn. Now you.
