  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. Also, 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.

    Seeding

    Seeding is done using Player Rankings #11. Any player who does not get an opportunity to play in this tournament gets an opportunity to play in the next tournament. Additionally, in the first tournament of the season, every player is seeded, but in the subsequent tournaments, only the top 50% of players are given positions by seeding and uses a variation the pool-shuffling method elucidated by Lutra in this thread.

    Ties

    Any matches which result in a tie are ignored.

    Points

    3 Points are awarded for completing a round. Every battle victory in a series which you lose contributes 1 point.

    Prizes

    Placing 1st place in Season 14 awards you with a £30 (or equivalent) amazon gift card. 2nd place receives £20 and 3rd place receives £10.

    About Simulators

    Both Pokemon Online and Pokemon Showdown are considered suitable simulators for the tournament. If players cannot agree upon which simulator to play, the default will be Pokemon Showdown. Pokemon Perfect has its own server which is the most recommended place to play games.

    Deadlines

    My personal policy on deadlines is not strict. Treat them more as goals for when you should have the games done, rather than strict deadlines. If there's reason to extend a deadline for players I wil usually do so, because my personal point of view is that having games completed does more for the integrity of the tournament than granting activity wins for players who are more engaged in the community.

    Any matches not played by the deadline or an extended deadline may be coin flipped or result in an activity win being granted to a player who has made greater effort to ensure that the game is played. Additionally, any player deemed inactive can be substituted out and replaced with a substitute at the contact deadline.

    In other tournaments, myself and other hosts may not necessarily follow the same policy on deadlines.

    won 3-1. you have a bad attitude, laughing at my sets which beat you, and not understanding the difference between passion for the game and anger at you.

    I didn't watch the series, but what I see in this replay should've been avoided: the first Clamp is incautious (you don't get a lot of benefit if Clamp hits and he switches, to Zam in this case), and the second one is a misplay (you either switch or Explode).
    Chansey is your counter for Jynx - yeah, it might get frozen, but Chansey is the special sponge and Jnx is a RNG dependant pokemon - that's what they do.
    Snorlax got a lucky freeze, but Cloyster was meant to be there - if it had both Rest and Explosion (which is the set I like the most), it was going to laugh at Snorlax forever.
    Tauros should've simply slammed at turn 20, but I understand you were at a point where you could've turned the lights off.

    I'm the first to hate RBY OU right now and most people don't recognize how RNG/situational matchups were at least helpful for them, but you need to be guiltless before complaining (for experience, I rarely saw somebody being sorry for you in gaming in general, but at least that's on them and not on you).

    First off, I think you misunderstood my post. Calling hax "unfair" is not my style. I was referring to G1-3, where my opp ranted hard like I was in some way responsible for random numbers, and I only posted G4 because he had made it private (whether there were ulterior motives behind hiding the only replay where I didn't have an advantage in luck is a whole different question). I don't complain about RNG, nor do I apologize. Every RBY player should be aware that a 75-90% chance doesn't mean you are entitled to hit the your move / get away without freeze.
    I'm also aware that I misplayed, however I already screwed up building my team since I didn't account for Jynx at all. Chansey was IB Reflect and since my opp had spammed for the freeze in G1-G3, bringing it in would've been a bad idea. Lesson learned, next time I won't slap a specialized set onto a team without caution just because it counters an opp's unusual playstyle. (Believe it or not, I'm still learning from my mistakes.)
    On a sidenote, I honestly think Clamp against Jynx wasn't too bad, since even if he goes to Zam, that means a free switch to (Dedge) Egg and knowledge of his filler (which I assumed to be Articuno at that point - urgh, another reason not to waste Cloyster).
    The freeze was indeed avoidable - Cloyster was specifically on the team to stop Restlax variants. Even without Cloyster, I should have seen Eggy absorbing sleep as a clear sign of an incoming Amnesia setup. But I didn't, and so I was forced to take not just one, but several IBs from this specifically freeze-oriented set.
    Lastly, I already saw the Tauros situation when analyzing the replay, but the game was already pretty much over at this point.

    Linkin Karp I told you I didn't watch the series indeed - I watched the game you linked because I thought that would be the haxy one. Now I know why you did that and I understood the Cloyster play as well (I didn't think about monoIce Chansey, it really needs Starmie as a 6th).
    Every RBY player should be aware that a 75-90% chance doesn't mean you are entitled to hit the your move / get away without freeze it depends on whether those chances are induced by predictions/strategy/misplays or not, but we all know it's just random...

    Lost 3-0 to Bomber. Thanks for the experience, everyone. Will likely just be a spectator from now on due to the difficulty of timezone differences, but I was happy to assist with filling the roster for the tourney.

    I'm going out of town this weekend. Drud never replied to my VMs about this tournament. Requesting activity win, or at least not the activity loss.

    History repeats, lost 2-3 to The Notorious B.I.G. in a close series filled with hax that wouldn't let my gimmicks shine. Always next MT I guess...

    Beat the wrap guru 3-0. Games 2 and 3 were insanely tough, and I probably would have lost the latter if not for a timely freeze and crit from Snorlax of all things.
