  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.

    With Dragonite legal and Rhydon banned, the new RBY 2U tier could be very different! If you're interested, sign up! The first round will go up in a week.

    I think not straight away, I think first we should play with Dragonite, and if the meta develops in such a way that if we inserted Articuno / Moltres they might not be broken then we can consider a retest. But losing Rhydon makes Moltres stronger, and gaining Dragonite doesn't make either Articuno or Moltres weaker, so unless these changes drastically change the face of the metagame in a way which makes Articuno and Moltres' answers much more viable (could be possible? maybe Dragonite's presence, and the loss of Rhydon for Dodrio, increases the viability of Omastar significantly? In which case, freeing Moltres is a possibility to consider) then they should remain banned for now.

    I will admit it's a tricky decision about what is the right thing to do in this general context. I feel like keeping all of the other Pokemon banned and then doing a group retesting if there are logical reasons to consider it / people are calling for it afterwards is a good guideline to begin with.

    Oh yeah, it's definitely a tricky problem. In theory I think we should test everything, but in practice it might not make sense, depending on the size of the banlist and the magnitude of the changes. I think it's something we ought to have a policy on. Maybe in future we'll have a vote on if/what we retest, as an automatic part of the review process?

    Yeah I like the idea. We could even extend this to a separate discussion (make a new thread?) if you like.

    Maybe just keep birds banned as they should be for obvious reasons and test DNite > likely ban AgiliWrap from 2U?

    Put me in, coach.

    (On topic of the birbs, from what I remember of last year's RBY UU ladder on Smogon where Dnite and Birds were freed, the tier is playable, but rather centralised around having a bird. I'd be down for playing with them in or out.)
