  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.

    Signups for this and the remaining Master Tournaments can be found [here].

    Clauses: HP Percentage Mod, Endless Battle Clause, Stalemate Clause, Cleric Clause, Sleep Clause, Freeze Clause, Species Clause
    Banned Moves: Dig, Double Team, Fissure, Fly, Guillotine, Horn Drill, Minimize, Psywave
    Banned Pokémon: Mewtwo, Mew

    Play a first-to-3-wins (BO5) series against your opponent. Any games resulting in a tie are to be ignored.

    3 points are awarded for winning a round. 1 point is awarded for every won game in a series that was lost. Series 31L does not award any points, but the winner receives a bronze medal.

    Seeding is done using [Player Rankings #12]. The top 50% of players are assigned seeds using a variation of the pool-shuffling method elucidated by Lutra in [this thread].

    Any player who does not get an opportunity to play in this tournament is guaranteed a spot in the next one.
    Any matches not played by the deadline are subject to activity calls by the host, namely, 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 at the contact deadline.

    Both forum and simulator activity are taken into account in order to determine whether a player has made the required effort in the situation of an unplayed match. It is each player's own responsibility to make the host aware of activity in other places like Smogon or Discord, for example by posting in the thread, or by contacting me on Discord (ΧΣ#4414, that's a Chi not an X, just copy-paste it).

    Only minimal extensions will be granted in the case that both players already agreed on a time that lies at most 48 hours past the deadline. Exceptions will only be made in case of force majeure.

    Any calls I make in specific games can be contested for 24 hours. If no objection is made during that time, the decision is final and will not be changed.
    For scheduling, leave a visitor message (VM) on your opponent's wall. In case of an activity call, VM activity will be considered above everything else. Scheduling on Discord or Smogon is also possible, but keep in mind that the host cannot trace this by himself in case of an activity situation, so it is your own responsibility to make him aware of your activity.

    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 Showdown [server], which is the most recommended place to play games.

    All deadlines are 8.00am GMT+2.

    Round 1 - Contact Deadline: Friday June 8, Final Deadline: Monday June 11

    Please pay attention to the revised extension policy.

    I put the players into groups with different priorities (players that didn't get to play in previous MTs (10) > players that won the first round in each previous MT (15) > everyone else (12) > players that lost a coinflip (0) > players that got an actloss (1)), then randomized the third group to decide which 7 of these 12 players got a spot.

    Alright u followed the right procedure. I will say though that maybe we need to update the procedure to include people who forfeit matchups (like Mysterious M & Ortheore did) to deprioritise those people too, for next time.

    No, absolutely not. Maybe for people who forfeit without putting any effort into activity (counting those forfeits as act losses), but not in these cases. M lost fair and square and just didn't feel he had a chance in the fifth game, but he robbed no one else of their chance to play against Peris. Orth gave up the win because his opponent made it very hard to schedule well past the deadline to sub someone in. If you want to discuss this more, PM me on Discord.

    Alright those are fair counterarguments especially in Ortheore's case. Maybe we should make it clear in the process that forfeited wins are a special case and the host can judge how to prioritise them? That seems like a better solution than one size fits all now that you've made that clear.

    This is a bit ambiguous but I just remembered that probably at some point, between the various categories, they would then be ordered by first come first served. I dunno if it's better to do that or do it randomised as you did? Obviously, don't redo it for this tour but what do you think is better for the next tour?

    Mixture of standard stuff and gimmicks here. Brought my Onix ToxicWrap team G1 which got screwed over by unlucky Hypnosis miss vs Jynx, and then proceded to lose another mon to sleep (because I got too bold and kept Gengar in to try and burn sleep and took a crit Psychic for my greed) and one more to having to kamikaze. Not a good showing for it unfortunately. G4 was a stallfest 'cause I brought Pory, but after a long match he was able to get what he needed to break through and win.

    Atrocious activity as usual. Subbing out LL, Mysterious M, toytean.
    SamuelBest and Jarii would usually both be subbed out because they didn't contact each other before the deadline, but I was late too. Giving Jarii 24 hours to respond.
    Giving Acsel, dom, Marcop9923, Tzara 24 hours to state whether they scheduled. If no contact has occurred yet, people will be subbed / take actlosses regardless if they VM their opp now.

    See kids, it's that simple. I can't hack your Discord to know whether you contacted or not. From next MT onwards, if I have no signs that contact has occurred, I'm subbing out regardless if you're going to play in 20 minutes.

    Won 3-1 against Golden Gyarados. Lots of hax on both sides. Hopefully, that means all of that nonsense is gone and out of the way for the rest of the tournament.

    Tzara made an attempt to contact, which I appreciate, but I'm sticking to what I said.

    Linkin Karp: flip: who stays in to face stockings?
    Linkin Karp: !pick Marcop9923, Tzara
    We randomly picked: Tzara

    Stockings vs Tzara
    Your deadline is Wednesday 8am instead of Monday. You have similar timezones. At least put in _some_ effort.

    Extension not granted. You did the bare minimum in scheduling, only proposing a time within the next hour and one that was in the middle of the night for your opponent. It's Wednesday, I'd only extend if you already had a time within the next 24 hours. This is not the case. Averardo vs Tropical Teo

    Act to Lusch. 72h extension for Tzara vs CrapAtRBY, unless Crap Tzara (e: I suck) wants the win, then just go ahead.

    Revised the Tzara vs CrapAtRBY situation. This is a clear actwin for Tzara and under these circumstances, 3 days extension would just be unfair towards other players who take an actloss for less.
