  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.

    For historical threads, check out Signups Closed, Finished tournaments and Results. We also have Nominations, Voting and Event threads for exhibitions – past and present.

    Tournament Format
    • Indigo Cup is a 10-man* invitational tournament in which the winners of the latest 6 cups (including the last Indigo Cup) and the latest RBY World Champion can take part. All other slots are filled with the highest available players from the current Player Rankings.
    • Players will be assigned into two round-robin groups and play 3 games against each opponent. The top 2 from each group advance to the BO5 semifinals.
    • During the group stage, ties are not replayed and instead count as 0.5 points for either player.
    • The winner of the tournament is declared the Indigo Champion, qualifies for next year's Indigo Cup and receives a [​IMG] trophy by their avatar!
    RBY 1U (OverUsed) Rules
    • Banned Pokemon: Mew, Mewtwo.
    • Banned Moves: Dig, Double Team, Fissure, Fly, Guillotine, Horn Drill, Minimize.
    • Clauses: Freeze Clause, Sleep Clause, Species Clause. Self-KO is a tie.
    Arrange location: Visitor Messages on Pokémon Perfect Forums
    Battle location: Pokémon Showdown!

    About Deadlines
    Any matches not played by the deadline are subject to activity calls by the host. Due to the generous deadline, extensions will only be granted in exceptional cases.
    Both forum and simulator activity are taken into account, in addition to contact in the arrange and battle locations, for influencing whether a player has made the required effort in an unplayed match situation.

    About Matches

    Players will probably gather around the Ruins of Alph channel on PS or the Smogtours or PP servers, so idle on there if you want to catch them. Please play matches in the RBY OU tier following the RBY 1U (OverUsed) rules.

    *From next year onwards the tournament will only include 8 players, however, this year's Indigo Cup will still be played by the original rules.
    If several players are tied, the games between those players are counted to determine tiebreak scores. This rule can be used recursively, so if it can only partially resolve a 3-way tie, it is to be applied again for the two remaining players. In the case a tie cannot be resolved using this rule, wins against the other (non-tied) players will be weighted based on their rank. In case of an absolutely symmetric tie, BO3 tiebreak matches can be played if needed, with the exception that the tiebreak will be BO1 for a two-player tie with a score of 1.5-1.5.
    Individual sets of 3 games between the same two players will never be grouped together and considered as a single "series", since "winning" two sets of games 2-1 each is not a better or worse result than a 3-0 and a 1-2.
    Play 3 games against each opponent. Ties count as 0.5 wins for both. Please post replays.
    First 2 of each group advance to the BO5 knockout round.

    Group 1

    1. Disaster Area 7-2
    2. Kaz 6-3

    1-2 vs Kaz in games the RBY gods simply didn't want me to win. Look at this shit:

    Turn 1
    ☆M-Kaz: gl hf
    Alakazam, come back!
    Go! Chansey!
    The opposing Alakazam used Thunder Wave!
    Chansey is paralyzed! It may be unable to move!
    Turn 2
    The opposing Alakazam used Psychic!
    Chansey lost 17% of its health!
    Chansey is paralyzed! It can't move!
    Turn 3
    The opposing Alakazam used Psychic!
    Chansey lost 18% of its health!
    Chansey's Special fell!
    Chansey is paralyzed! It can't move!
    Turn 4
    The opposing Alakazam used Psychic!
    Chansey lost 28% of its health!
    Chansey is paralyzed! It can't move!
    Turn 5
    The opposing Alakazam used Psychic!
    Chansey lost 28% of its health!
    Chansey's Special fell!
    Chansey used Soft-Boiled!
    Chansey restored its HP.
    Turn 6
    Chansey, come back!
    Go! Alakazam!
    The opposing Alakazam used Psychic!
    It's not very effective... Alakazam lost 17% of its health!
    Turn 7
    Alakazam, come back!
    Go! Chansey!
    The opposing Alakazam used Psychic!
    Chansey lost 17% of its health!
    Turn 8
    The opposing Alakazam used Psychic!
    Chansey lost 19% of its health!
    Chansey is paralyzed! It can't move!
    Turn 9
    The opposing Alakazam used Psychic!
    A critical hit! Chansey lost 23% of its health!
    Chansey fainted!
    Go! Exeggutor!

    that is bs but I did something similar to Kaz's zam turn 1 in g2 and he still won :x

    also, I think egg is a way better turn 1 switch vs zam than chansey is even if it's sing chansey precisely because of that happening (if ur at 50% and failed to get sleep then u can just boom there)

    but if it's lead zam I'd just stay in...

    Yup, this is a tie. Both players get a "you lose" message. Only on ladder it's implemented as a win for the exploding player.

    [15:30] ΧΣ: @GGFan will you get your indigo games done someday?
    [15:46] GGFan: god willing.

    All other games are done, please put in a little more effort. I'd like to see at least 6-9 of the 12 games done this weekend.
    If none of your games are played by the deadline I'll probably have to disqualify you to avoid problems with scoring.

    While it's an honor to have qualified for the Indigo Cup once again, I have decided to drop out of this tour as I simply do not have enough passion to indulge in more of the same. I do hope you can forgive me for any encumbrances I may have burdened you with due to my disinterested attitude.

    I would also like to wish the remaining competitors the best of luck. As someone who has earned a positive record in this and the other "tournaments of champions" that Pokemon Perfect offer, I can safely say that it's no small feat to do well in a playing field as capable of this. Enjoy the opportunity, all of you.

    I'm sorry.
