    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.

    Hello everyone.

    At the start of PPL4, I told the other GTT members about me wanting to resign from PP and now that it is finished (congratulations to Flareon Force!), I still feel that it is the correct decision for me. The main reason is that I have less time to spend on Pokémon after the summer and I prefer to use it to grow RoA. The moment I got the GTT position here, I also got a promotion on Smogon to become a RoA mod to help the tournament scene grow after Lutra expanded it this year. This meant that I couldn't spend enough time on PP to lead it successfully and this meant that people correctly noticed that PP has been declining since DA left. I felt guilty from time to time for half-assing PP and I currently feel that PP deserves people who are more motivated than me to help it reach its former glory.

    Since I started my Master project time has been a bit more limited than before and now that I know that I will do my PhD there as well, I don't know how much time I can spend on Pokémon. Therefore, I decided that improving RoA reputation and its circuit is the main thing I want to do, so that past gens become more respected and accessible for Smogon players (and make them less likely to be kicked out of teamtours). This means that I cannot commit to leading PP and therefore will resign so that new and enthusiastic people can take over.

    My resigning doesn't mean that I won't be around anymore or that I'm not hosting any tours in the future, I just want to have a bit more freedom to choose which tours I want to host, manage or play in.

    Thank you for everything, these were some amazing years for me, especially Sceptross, Disaster Area, SamuelBest, Lutra and drud!

    it's been great fun having you around all this time, chatting and playing Pokemon with you. Hope you'll still have some time for ADV 50 with me, and hope someone will find a way to fill this vacuum.
