  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.

    I only started playing RBY a year ago. I hear talk of the body slam tragedy, but that was before my time. I know no other way, but to those who played for years before it was discovered... do you enjoy the game more or less now?

    I still enjoy the game a similar amount... the loss in bslam has been partially made up for by counter being incredibly awesome. The game is not as good of a tournament meta though I think, games are much more decided by short game scenarios which can have a big impact on the game that we didn't have before. (ie tauros dittos)

    I'm going to say that I enjoy the game more, but that's in spite of the Body Slam changes. Reflect Normals and Tauros dittos are absolutely awful imo, but I enjoy the game more because I simply think I understand the game better on a strategic level than I did before. I really love having that kind of in-depth understanding. Sadly, I don't think my execution of said strategies is up to scratch

    I just find it amusing that this was considered a “recent” discovery when everyone in the lunchroom figured this out back in 1998 when trading their Apple for more Chocolate Milk as we all trolled eachother with level 255 Mewtwos...

    totally dude i remember being a kid
    'yeah bro girls have cooties, wanna hear this new dirty word I heard my uncle say? Oh also did you know that whenever a normal type pokemon uses body slam on another normal type pokemon in red, blue and yellow that the secondary effect of a 30% chance of inflicting paralysis can't occur?'

    I think we all just figured out that pokemon of the type can't be effected by the secondary effect of moves from that type so Fire's couldn't be burned, Ice can't be frozen, etc. With 30% chance to paralyze you notice it not happening fairly quickly even when your classmate thinks his parents have the same private parts and babies are shit out. (Although considering family dynamics in this day and age...)
