  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.

    With regards to our tiering policy, it seems that players have a massively wide range of views on where to draw the line with regards to when Pokemon should be suspected/banned. What I want to know is whether we should just let players go with their gut or whether we should have stricter definitions of what makes something banworthy, and to what extent should it be enforcible.

    I answered that we should have an enforcible policy, but although I think we ought to have something like this, I don't know what that might look like. The only thing I can think of is requiring reasoning for votes, but to my knowledge that's been fairly unpopular, due primarily to the subjective nature of it and potentially it could feel like a chore (idk, I don't mind it, but I could see that being the case). I don't think there's anything to be done for the latter point, but maybe the subjectivity issue could be alleviated by having all reasoning open to peer review, with votes being approved or denied. Opening it up to everyone would defeat the purpose, so we restrict the ability to approve to people who themselves have had X number of votes approved. This would mean that anyone would be able to review votes, giving us the quantity of perspectives we need to avoid issues of subjectivity, while also imposing a barrier for anyone looking to screw around.

    Of course that's all assuming we decide paragraphs are a good way of enforcing this, it'd be totally reasonable to simply decide not to do that. But I do think we need to at least have guidelines or something

    At 14 votes and almost 1 day in, there's a supermajority for the second option. I'll be keeping this open a few more days and let more people vote but I think it's now a good idea to discuss how we should make these guidelines on what makes something banworthy.
