    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).

  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.

    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.

    I am proposing a change to the tier names which I expect will probably be well-received. I think Ortheore came up with it first? Anyway, when tiers are still in a testing stage we use the following names currently:
    1B - for the initial version of 1U before any Pokemon are banned
    1C - for a beta version of 1U after at least one Pokemon is banned
    2A - for the initial version of 2U before any Pokemon are banned (the same applies to all tiering levels below 2)
    2B - for a beta version of 2U where at least one Pokemon is banned

    I propose instead we just have:
    1U (beta) for the initial version of 1U, whether a Pokemon is banned or not.
    2U (beta) for the initial version of 2U, whether a Pokemon is banned or not. The same applies to tiers in lower tier levels too.

    It's far more intuitive, so I think we should do it.

    I've followed through with this although I've not updated the tiering nomenclature thread (which could probably do with a larger update & re-evaluation)
