  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.

    The 5U tier has been born, and now is the time to explore it!

    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 opponent. 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 or the viability rankings thread (also useful for learning the meta)

    Note that if you wish to take part in tiering decisions you are strongly advised to join

    Won 2-1 vs. Ortheore, ggs. Game 3 I tried a cancer team of Ninetales/Seadra/Weepinbell/Arbok/Dragonair/Dratini, and ended up winning with Dratini finishing up the game after Dragonair choked in front of Drowzee and got itself paralyzed. I think Dragonair + Dratini teams may actually be a thing.

    Lost 0-3 to Disaster Area, DA had all the luck. Early freezes, lots of crits, high rolls, and AgiliWrap flops.

    Won 2-1 vs Ortheore with a lucky g3 endgame after missing some Blizzards. Series involved pretty much all of the metagame, I'd say Dnair definitely belongs to high floors of this tier - I'd say A because Wrap is still Wrap, but Dnair does other things too.

    I've subbed you into week 6, you're vs stunner047

    I haven't subbed you into week 5 just because today's the deadline and there'll be a new matchup soon but if you want I can sub you in there as well

    Thanks. Forgive me for asking, but are you allowed to switch teams in the middle of a set?

    How are you guys feeling about continuing? I think there's still more exploring to be done (Kabutops could be significant, the rankings could be tweaked), but it's time for a new matchup and there are still so many unfinished battles that I wonder where everyone's at.
