  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.

    WCoPP (World Cup of Pokemon Perfect) is an international team tournament, where players form teams from their region of the world to compete. It can be countries (e.g. Italy), regions (e.g. Latin America), or even parts of countries or other unions (e.g. USA East, UK). Myself, tjdaas, and a still to be determined co-host will host the tournament, and will be in charge as of the point where player signups are posted. Perry will help us with the important and impactful decisions. All difference between the last version and this version of WCoPP were voted on by representative of the teams, a host and some GTT (Global Tournament Team) members.

    The following countries and regions have already made clear that they wanted to participate in this event:
    All European countries except those with their own team
    Latin America
    Seven Seas:
    International Team
    United Kingdom + Ireland

    USA East: New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, District of Columbia, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Ohio, Puerto Rico and all other Atlantic Territories of the USA.
    USA West-Central: Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Hawaii and all other Pacific Territories of the USA
    Players that signup for a certain region can vote for who they want to be the manager of their team. The person with the most amount of votes will be the manager, unless this person does not want to manage, or who the GTT have said cannot manage. In this case, we move down the list of votes until a person is found who wants to manage. Teams or managers can nominate an assistant manager. As with managers, the GTT can refuse an individual from assistant-managing. If a manager is not going to be around during the sign-up period, the assistant manager can send in the roster, and the line-ups for any weeks of the tournament. If a team is not listed and you wish to form a team, sign up in the player signups thread and if you get sufficient players, send in the roster, and your team will be included. If a team cannot get enough players, they can merge with another team. If it makes geographic sense the team can become a new team recognising the two regions players come from (e.g. Asia Pacific would represent Asia and Oceania, Afrabs would represent Africa and the Asian countries in the middle east) or if that doesn't make sense, they become an International team. Managers may change their assistant manager; if they wish to, please notify the hosts. Managers and assistant managers are permitted to play, but must be included in the roster if they are going to play. Managers (or their respective assistant managers) must post their final squad, consisting of at least 10 and a maximum of 12 players in the player signup thread, before signups have closed.

    On Eligibility

    - Players should play on the team which they feel they identify with the most, e.g. born there, live there, have lived there, etc. If that country is not where your IP address says you live, the reason you are eligible should be listed clearly.
    - If you're from or in a country where the continent or greater region also has a team, e.g. you live in Italy and therefore you are also in Europe, you must play for the team representing a smaller area, unless you are rejected from the team with a smaller area.
    - If you play for a team, in future iterations you must play for the same team if the team still exists, unless you wish to play for a new team which did not previously exist whenever you previously played with another team.


    WCoPP will feature 6 tiers, and every team will have 8 players in its lineup every week. The tiers are as follows,
    2x RBY OU (Bo3),
    1x GSC OU,
    2x ADV OU,
    1x HGSS OU,
    1x BW OU,
    1x ORAS OU,
    where all tiers, except RBY, are bo1. As you can see, both RBY and ADV have two slots. We will not randomize these slots: the player which one team places in the first slot will face the player from the other team placed in the first slot. All tiers use the smogon rulesets. Any tied game, in the first four gens, counts as a tie and will not be replayed.

    Team Matchups

    Assuming that there are between 10 and 14 teams, the teams will be randomly divided into two equally sized groups. In the case of a odd number of signups, the new team faces the team participating which performed the worst in the previous iteration. If there is more than one new team, then the host and the GTT will convene to determine which teams should battle and how, in order to remove a team from participating in the tournament. Should there be 16 or more teams, the GTT, host, and a representative from each team will discuss and decide upon the format.

    After the group stage, the two teams with the highest amount of points, within each pool, will move on to the semi-finals. If two or multiple teams are tied in points, battle differentials (the number of wins minus the number of losses) will determine the placement of the teams. If this is still insufficient, the head to head record will determine the placement, except in the instance where one of the teams face elimination. In those instances, as well as instances where the two teams also tied in a head to head, a tiebreaker will be played with the format of RBY OU / Tier picked by one team's manager / Tier picked by the other team's manager. If there are 3 or more teams tied, the host and GTT will convene to decide how to break the tie.

    Signups Date

    Player Sign-ups will open on August 27th. They will be open for 2 weeks. Subsequently, unless there are battles to determine which teams are to be included, week 1 shall begin on September 10th.
