  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.

    Tournament Format
    • A player can challenge any other player, which can't be refused. Before accepting or issuing other challenges, both players have to complete their match.
    • Once a player defeats another player, they own that defeated player (called a doll).
    • Players can choose one of their dolls to do a battle instead of them, and the dolls are 'destroyed' if they lose.
    • If a player battles without using their dolls, and loses, the opponent takes the player as a doll and their previous dolls, should there be any remaining.
    • At the end of this process, if there is only 1 remaining player but more than 1 doll still remaining, the 1 remaining player is granted an extra life, so they have to be defeated twice (or more) to become a doll, and the dolls become players once more. If there is only 1 remaining player, and 1 remaining doll, they play a final round. The doll has to win twice against its master in order to win the cup, but the master only has to win once.
    • Games are BO1.
    • The remaining player is declared the Saffron Champion, qualifies for the 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, in which case a replay should occur.
    Arrange location: Visitor Messages on Pokémon Perfect Forums
    Battle location: Pokémon Showdown!

    About Activity
    Any matches not played 1 week after a challenge is issued are subject to activity calls by the host, with a contact deadline 48 hours after both players are decided on. If a challenged player fails to appoint a doll within 48 hours, they have to face the challenger themselves.
    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.
    A challenges B, wins and gets B as their doll.
    A vs B
    A -> B (to be read as: master -> dolls)

    C challenges A. A chooses to send their doll so C plays against B. B wins and C becomes A's doll.
    C vs B [<- A]
    A -> B, C

    A challenges D, sending B to fight them. B loses and is removed from the tour.
    [A ->] B vs D
    A -> C

    A challenges E, who is a strong player, and sending C would be a waste of a doll, so A plays E by themselves. A loses and not only they, but also C becomes E's doll.
    A vs E
    E -> A, C

    Post to challenge someone! Also mention who should do the battle.

    Alive Players

    ErPeris -> Ilesaural, Sceptross
    marcoasd -> Lusch
    Genesis7 -> Alfredo_Rivero

    Almost got it vs. marco but it was down to some Vic speed ties and Sleep Powder accuracy which didn't fall my way. The only thing I regret is Thunder Waving with Chansey on turn 33 as I feel like that is always a missplay, because even if he switches to Vic I can save Chansey. gg

    Lost a close one to ErPeris to remain winless in this tour. Don't think I ever had a game in which there were so many speed ties (there might have been a dozen)--that was wild to say the least.

    sorry for not updating the thread for a whopping 13 hours, bad season host alert.
    some clarification. at the time of ErPeris' challenge, samy0w was already terpnation's doll. nevertheless, he agreed to respond to the challenge and play the match. this was an error on the part of both ErPeris and samy0w, however, it would be the only reasonable option for terpnation to send samy0w against GGFan either way. therefore, the result will not be overturned. samy0w is accordingly removed from the tour for losing twice and terpnation will play against Bedschibaer.
    in the future, make sure to challenge only masters, not dolls. at the time of the challenge, samy0w had already been listed as a doll for an hour.

    I don't think you can proactively challenge ... that would open the door to essentially having people "line up" to try to force favourable matchups.

    In any case, I'm trying hard to get my doll and Huston to schedule (see AAamen's wall) but it hasn't happened yet
