  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.

    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: Saturday Jul 7, Final Deadline: Monday Jul 16

    Note that absolutely no extensions will be given for this round, except in case of force majeure.

    predicts on outcomes don't make much sense with the recent level of activity here, also I haven't really been following the RBY scene lately, pity, would've loved to do some for my final tour here.
    either way, here's a prophecy from the prediction god himself, for my 333rd post

    [21:17] ΧΣ: we are pp
    [21:17] ΧΣ: in july 18
    [21:17] ΧΣ: all 12 subs will get to play
    [21:17] ΧΣ: and 7 of them will lose to act
    [21:18] ΧΣ: the other 5 win the coinflip

    Subbing out setarkos, Jarii, Yoshizilla315.
    Giving Kaz, christos21, Ranshiin, tjdaas, MetalGross, Charmflash 24 hours to inform me on the progress of their scheduling. This should not be necessary, as is stated clearly multiple times in the rules, and in following MTs you would just be subbed out instead.
    Giving Bedschibaer 24 hours to reply to Pidgey Gordito, who initiated contact very late. Your opponent apparently does not use Discord, and it is currently unclear whether the "Pidgey gordito" account in the PP server actually belongs to them (it would be nice to get some clarification on this one).

    Acsel vs stunner047
    SamuelBest vs toytean
    Mister Tim vs Stockings

    Contact deadline for these matchups is Wednesday Jul 11, 8am GMT+2 Monday Jul 9, 8pm (!) GMT+2.

    Won 3-2 against star, ggs.

    Hooboy, this was an intense set. Would end up feeling the pressure on my end from less favorable RNG, then suddenly big breaks out of nowhere to put me back into the game.

    Standout is our final match, with FPs up the wazoo on my side against his lead Zam leading to me being 4-6 with the only thing accomplished is his Alakazam is sleeping, while he could still put one of my mons asleep. He had a fully healthy Exeggutor out that had just Beamgore'd my Exeggutor, and Tauros was the only thing left that was faster. I figured I had to go for Tauros Freeze to get any kind of momentum back. I got the freeze and barely recovered the game from there.

    Victreebel also was an MVP for my second win, I was behind and Victreebel didn't choke for once and bailed me out big time.

    Never in my life have I played a tournament set so forced, I was playing the games just wanting them to end asap.

    ggs

    EDIT: Just for clarification, my problem is not with RBY, I still have a lot of fun playing RBY - What I have problems with is tournaments, please feel free to continue to PM me for friendlies when you see me!

    We may indeed need to reduce the number of tournaments.

    or u need to enter fewer

    ... this conversation is carried on here

    confirming, great set.

    Sharing game 4 bc that was one I felt I played pretty well (overcome bad MU + being frozen turn 3!)

    Also the set was so wild that I actually OHKOd a Golem with a Starmie Hydro Pump in one of the games...

    It's the second time in my entire career as RBYer that I'm so amazed by a player (the first one was against Lusch for Virdian), i'm really impressed. Very well played, absolutely deserved win.

    GGs man, gl for the next ones

    Got to test some [​IMG] + T-Wave [​IMG], and they put in some work together. Managed to go 1-1 with it, with the loss being against one of its worst matchups (Alakazam+Starmie 6th)
