  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.

    Hi, it's been a while since I last played but I'm all spirited to get back into it. I'm updating my Pokemon damage calculator I made a few years ago, mainly correcting things like rounding and capping in formulas. This post by Crystal_ has been very helpful to me:

    All Gens - Past Gens Research Thread | Smogon Forums

    However, I can't seem to find a clear, detailed explanation of how stats are calculated from base stats, IVs, and EVs. I've used these pages for info so far:

    Statistic - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia
    Effort values - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia
    All About Stats, Training, and Breeding in RBY / GSC - Smogon University

    But there seem to be inconsistences and poorly worded explanations. I'm wondering if anyone has come across a resource that gives a precise method for calculating stats. I'm Autistic and OCD, and while I recognise that this quest for the perfect calculator is unnecessary, I enjoy the exercise nonetheless.

    I hope to battle against some familiar names soon. :)

    I've written about these precise mechanics already in my unfinished book, pm me if you'd like to receive the file, it's too big to share here.
